Digital Signage Conference: Flat Panel Displays Go Out-of-Home
Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Static print signage continues to transition to digital signage, providing opportunities for dynamic, targeted messaging to transform customer experiences. At the heart of digital signage is the display itself. It’s not only is the most visible component, but also where the most capital is expended to make digital displays an affordable alternative to the printed page. At the same time, increased penetration of displays in the home has spurred commercial-usage models "out-of-home". With these exciting opportunities come new challenges in supporting new products and service offerings, and developing relationships for improving go-to-market strategies. This conference will bring together the world’s largest flat-panel display vendors and partners, companies well-established in out-of-home environments, and start-up companies fostered by this brave new world of digital displays. Applications including mass-transit information and advertising signage, electronic menu boards, higher education institutions, retail point-of-sale and general retail dynamic signage, as well as corporate office mass-communication networks, out-of-home mixed-use advertising/information/security messaging and emerging solutions for the outdoor portion of the OOH market will also be examined.
