The Internet of Things Digital Signage
The Internet of Things has arrived, and its reach is expanding. In its increasingly common usage, the term “Internet of Things” refers to the network of every day physical objects, structures, and vehicles linked to and accessible through internet connectivity. Each has embedded within it the necessary and sufficient technology to communicate with the external world. It’s not just our phones, home devices, and cars that are synced to each other through an internet connection; the digital signage industry has also solidified its presence on the grid.
5 Trends in Great Display Content for Your In-Store Content
Consumers expect businesses to be authentic about their ideals, and a well-thought out content strategy should represent these beliefs transparently. Marketing is about telling a story, and understanding the growing trends in display content is crucial to constructing that narrative. Businesses should use their digital display content for a variety of applications, like informing users of the brand’s presence on these channels.
9 Times AV Technology Helped Higher Education Institutions
LED installations have the power to alter a higher education institution’s future by displaying the best of campus life or simplifying the life of teachers who just want their presentations to run smoothly. In this slideshow featuring several NanoLumens solutions, you’ll see some prime examples of AV installations that put the focus on improving students’ and teachers’ experience in the learning environment. It’s difficult to do both: professors require one-touch, fast-working control systems, while college students are notoriously hard to impress.
LED Makes Its Mov(i)e On Cinema
While many of the challenges of electronic cinema have been met with DLP, the question exists: Is there any way that another technology — direct view LED displays — can begin the effort to resolve limitations and meet the requirements of cinema? The challenges are large but the requirements have been carefully defined by many experts to assure that the destination, if met, can be a suitable replacement for some of the vulnerable portions of the digital cinema market. Looking at the challenges, we can assess how much work will be required.
Level 3 Audiovisual, NanoLumens Beats Arizona Sunshine with ASU Video Walls
Level 3 Audiovisual had a pair of powerful forces working against it as it looked to be Arizona State University’s (ASU) integration firm on a $2.4 million, 220,000-square-foot project that included AV technology in almost every room of its Beus Center for Law. One obstacle was the power of money. The other powerful force was the sun.
NanoLumens Adds Infrared-based Touch to Fine Pitch LED Displays
Atlanta-based LED manufacturer NanoLumens has added infra-red edge sensors to make its narrow pixel pitch LED walls interactive, if needed. It’s possible to do touch on an LED with a glass or a hardened plastic overlay, but that comes with baggage (like trapping heat and making servicing a much bigger deal). Here’s how it’s done.
Miami Heat, NanoLumens Share Fan Engagement Secrets at InfoComm 2017
The Miami Heat is a young team on the rise in the NBA with a loyal fan base that sells out most of their games at AmericanAirlines Arena, so fan engagement is strong. But team officials noticed a long-standing problem and needed a solution: they were blessed with 30,000 square feet of usable space outside AmericanAirlines Arena but weather in south Florida ranges from too hot to too wet, thanks to the “daily dump of rain,” as Heat EVP and chief revenue officer John Vidalin describes it.
Utilizing Technology to Create ‘Experience Shopping’
In this exclusive interview with Installation International, NanoLumens VP of global retail, Matt Nurre, reveals more about experience shopping and how it’s the only way bricks and mortar retailers can compete with online shopping and the Amazon behemoth.
Crisp, Clear Digital Signage for Safe Rail Transportation
Despite all the advantages of rail transport, the industry has been challenged by a spate of derailments and crashes, prompting the government to put new safety laws into effect. The federal government has mandated that all railways implement an advanced technology, positive train control (PTC).
Despite the many advantages to PTC, the technology is only as good as the displays in the command and control centers.
5 Ways the Higher Ed Market Is Evolving
Higher education has a growing need to engage students who were born into the world of digital devices. Higher-education institutions look to engage students through a multiplatform digital approach: These technology deployments are evolving to more ubiquitous digital experiences. It’s all about messaging and communicating to the student population through technology modes they choose. A big movement toward large format direct view LED displays in common areas with high traffic is underway. We are seeing institutions bring student groups together for an on-campus experience driven by technology; I believe the genesis is the ongoing war against online education. The campus experience must be unique and memorable — and unique technology deployments offer something to the student they can’t receive online.
