Interactive Digital Signage and the Growth of the Market

Interactivity has been the buzz in digital signage for a while, so why is there not more of it out there in the real world? It’s out there– but we’re living in an odd world where 1) there is still a lack of understanding in the market about what touch technologies are required to interactive, and 2) digital signage now must compete with that other, hyper-interactive technology– the smartphone in most everyone’s hands.

Digital Signage Conference InfoComm– Defining the Market

On the eve of InfoComm, digital signage was front and center in Las Vegas, as DisplaySearch held its Digital Signage Conference in conjunction with InfoComm 2012. Crucial topics such as commercial vs consumer grade flat panels, LED vs CCFL backlit LCD, Super-Narrow Bezel (SNB), and the latest market/sales numbers brought some interesting discussion from some of the industry’s top analysts and providers.
