Gary Feather, NanoLumens’ Chief Technology Officer, explains how the strong market growth of digital signage over the past 10 years will be outshone by the expanded performance and applications made possible through recent display and system advances. The digital-signage market has grown impressively in recent years. According to a recent report from research firm IHS, shipments of public displays 26 in. or larger are forecast to approach 3 million units in 2015 and close to 4.5 million units in 2019. (For more discussion of the digital-signage market, see the article “New Directions for Digital Signage” in this issue.) While there are a number of technologies that have contributed to this growth, this article will focus on those technologies that are contributing to the evolution and future of direct-view digital signage in particular. (For the purposes of this article, “direct view” refers to digital signage that is not based on projection technology.)
