We’ll discuss how a new generation of display solutions can simplify deployments and drive broader adoption of digital signage. I will moderate, and we have some some interesting panelists. Joining me in the discussion will be well-known digital signage expert Jim Huber. Jim had a long stint, until last year, as a top executive at NOR-COM, one of the top systems integrators in the country. He’s now in charge of technology rollouts at Office Depot. With a PhD and decades of experience, Jim’s an expert on Digital Signage, whose knowledge base including the engineering issues (but also the business side) is second to none.

And we’ll have some representatives from the digital signage content management software side on the panel as well, on the panel, talking about the screen/media player/software dynamic. Samsung is sponsoring the event, and will be represented on the panel, on the heels of their rollout this year of a new “smart signage” platform.

It should be a lively discussion– an open forum, with questions from the audience, as we look at the digital signage landscape going forward with productions/solutions such as the new imbedded system-on-chip technologies and web-based content platforms base on new HTML5 tools.

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.

InfoComm Awards, Digital Signage for Live Events

For years, I’ve been in charge of both the DIGI Awards, and the InfoComm/NewBay Media Rental & Staging awards. The DIGI’s, you know about– it’s the longest-running, more prestigious awards program honoring excellence in digital signage, on both the applications, and new product side. But for the last couple years– and continuing this year– there is a digital signage category in the InfoComm/NewBay Media Rental & Staging awards.
