Digital displays are becoming more affordable and more accessible to a wider range of consumers and audiences. In short, it's everywhere. But for many people, even those who work in AV, the technologies that power these often massive and engaging screens are still a little bit mysterious. That's why AVIXA kicked off its D=SIGN Power Hour Webinar series almost six months ago - to pull back the veil of digital signage and reveal some very cool and important aspects of it.

So, as we anxiously await the sixth installment, an informative discussion on integrating and networking multiple displays, here's a look back on the ground we've already covered on this topic.

D=SIGN POWER HOUR: SCREEN MIRRORING AND ENGAGEMENT
2/23/2021

Screen mirroring is an emerging technology that wirelessly displays the content of one screen or device onto another device screen. Distinctly different than online conferencing software and streaming platforms, screen mirroring is being used in hospitality, corporate, education, healthcare, and other environments to deliver a more personalized experience. In our February D=SIGN Power Hour, industry experts Tyler Renstom of Clear Touch Interactive and Sean Courtney of Squirrels discuss screen mirroring's origins, how it's being implemented now in myriad professional settings, and the future of the technology.

D=SIGN POWER HOUR: CONTENT MANAGEMENT WITH MULTIPLE USERS
3/23/2021

One doesn't normally think of security in the realm of digital signage content management but it can be a major concern when multiple users are responsible for the content displayed on a screen or screens. In this webinar, moderator Kelly Smith, Sr. Manager, Digital Network at Cadillac Fairview, leads a lively discussion about communication, asset management, and how several users can be effectively supervised to keep a digital signage network running smoothly and securely. Joining her are Parrish Chapman, Director of Retail Sales - Display Division for Samsung Electronics America, Dominic DeSieno, Digital Signage Technology Lead for Wells Fargo, and Ryan Cahoy, Chief Revenue Officer at InReality.

D=SIGN POWER HOUR: QUEUING AND CROWDS
4/20/2021

Crowds during peak hours can be both a safety and customer service nightmare. That's why more and more airports, healthcare facilities, restaurants, retail outlets, entertainment venues, and sports arenas are turning to digital signage to help navigate publicly accessible spaces. This webinar features Chris Freeman, Digital Signage Federation Education Committee and Board Member discussing new technologies and creative solutions for wayfinding and crowd control with Michael Ferrer, Director of Solutions Sales for Sharp NEC Display Solutions, and Mark Chowaniec, Program Manager for United Airlines.

D=SIGN POWER HOUR: EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
5/25/2021

Digital signage technology is constantly evolving and adapting. Predictions for its future are often reality before the ink is dry on those prognostications. Regardless, this webinar attempts to break down the emerging tech on the digital signage landscape like transparency, touchscreens, and interactivity. Moderator Michael Katz, Chief Relationship Officer for Zignage is joined by Tim Donovan, President of Bravo Media, David Keene, Executive Editor of digiDaybook, and Mark Quiroz, VP of Marketing, Display Division, at Samsung Electronics America, for an engaging discussion on what's just over the horizon for digital signage.

D=SIGN POWER HOUR: AUTOMATED CONTENT DELIVERY & TRIGGERS
Date: 6/8/2021

Were you aware some digital signage can now provide the necessary information to potential buyers and existing customers on the fly? Through technology that senses who and what an audience is, content creators can provide the right messaging to engage those who are viewing it at any given time. Cool, huh? But it all comes with concerns over privacy and just how far the AI engines that make this all possible should go. Ryan Cahoy, Chief Revenue Officer InReality, leads this timely discussion. Tomer Mann, EVP of Sales & Marketing for 22 Miles, Tim Vance, CEO of Data Call Technologies, and Jeffrey Weitzman joins the roundtable.
