I will moderate. The full slate of Panelists will be:

InfoComm attendees are invited to attend the Digital Signage Roundtable that will take place Day 1 at the InfoComm show in Orlando. The Roundtable, “Simplifying Digital Signage” will take place at InfoComm, Wednesday June 12th, 4:30-6:00pm, in a classroom/presentation room right off the show floor, and if you're in the channel– IT or AV Integrators, product resellers– or if you’re an end user of digital signage, you’re welcome to attend (no charge to register/attend).

There will be discussion of Samsung’s new Smart Signage solution, particularly from a few of Samsung’s digital signage content management software partners– SignageLive, and Capital Networks (two of a variety of software providers that have used Samsung’s software developer kit to provide a cloud-based CMS for the new initiative).

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 products/solutions such as the new imbedded system-on-chip technologies and web-based content platforms base on new HTML5 tools.

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.
