Nissen will put the displays at the storefronts of 50 selected bookstores in Japan, and it shows passer-byes videos promoting new line-ups of magazines and books.   The display has a feature to transfer information to FeliCa-enabled cellphone handsets by touching a signal transmitting point, it can be used for giving away discount coupons to potential customers.   The videos displayed are carried automatically online.
Nissen has used bookstores as a channel to acquire new mail-order customers by distributing catalogs at their storefronts.
