Digital Signage at InfoComm Display Summit

It wouldn’t be the InfoComm show if we didn’t get to enjoy the Projection Summit the two days before the show floor opens– but wait, this year it’s the Display Summit, as Chris Chinnock and colleagues at Insight Media have rebranded the event and its content in the wake of continuing inroads of non-projection technology into everything from boardrooms to classrooms not to mention Digital Signage. Registration for the Summit is open at: http://www.displaysummit.com/registration/

You probably don’t need an introduction to the long list of topics the Summit tackles each year. In the past couple years, there has been a lot of focus on 4K of course. And of course new generation projection such as hybrid, and this year pure laser light source projection, and higher resolution LED walls/modules. And the sessions get down to technical nitty gritty as well as the latest marketing and sales issues.

New this year– I’ll be moderating a special panel on Day 2 of the Summit, on Digital Signage. Check out the Digital Signage agenda on Day 2 at the end of the general agenda, below.
