Digital Signage Providers Head to InfoComm

Publish date:

When InfoComm opens its doors next week in Anaheim (pre-show seminars and training beging this weekend), they'll be riding a wave of interest in the AV community in all things digital signage. After all, the InfoComm-based AV integrators and design consultants have been specing and installing this kind of technology for years. The only new thing about it is the fact that there is now huge demand for it outside of the classroom and the boardroom and the auditorium–and the content part of the equation is the added element that has many AV integrators searching for content management partners and/or ramping up their own content expertise.
InfoComm 07 will feature a "Digital Signage Pavilion", but much of the show will in fact be pertinent to the digital signage market–and not just the big Plasma or LCD display providers like Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Pioneer, Mitsubishi, LG, etc. Let's not forget that digital signage display is not just about flat panels. Video projection is gaining traction for digital signage, where larger images or needed and for innovative applications such as putting images on the side of buildings. And LED is an important part of digital signage as well, when displays are needed outdoors or in other environments that require very high brightness.
InfoComm’s Digital Signage Pavilion is indeed growing, and will provide end-users and integrators of digital signage technology in the retail, corporate, hospitality and institutional markets an opportunity to see top companies presenting the latest in display, content routing, and content management. Exhibitors include Electrograph, Covid, Grass Valley, C-nario, Lighthouse, Scala and VBrick. Gold Sponsors of the Digital Signage Pavilion at InfoComm are Peerless, Sony, and Stampede, and more.
Digital signage expert Lyle Bunn leads a six-hour InfoComm Academy session, on Monday before the opeining of the show floor, on Business Opportunities in Digital Dynamic Signage. Exhibitors like Avocent, Communications Specialties, OmniMount Systems, Peerless Industries, Roku and VBrick Systems will also offer Manufacturers Training sessions related to digital signage.
The six-hour InfoComm Academy Super Monday session is "SM5; Business Opportunities in Dynamic Digital Signage"
Track : Applied Technology Topics : Digital Signage
Moderator: Lyle Bunn
