Commercial office towers that used to put water features and huge artworks in their lobbies, to create an experience and both attract and keep tenants, have been turning more recently to massive LED video walls and projection features. The difference: if the owners no longer like the fountain, they need to fund a multi-million renovation. With digital, they can change a video file and completely reset the space's look, feel and experience.
In this webinar, industry experts will discuss how direct view LED and complementary technologies are being used, as well as the creative thinking, execution and implications behind project. We'll discuss some key projects and outcomes, costs and challenges.
A monthly series of highly-topical digital signage conversations, each Power Hour kicks off with an industry update on the latest in the digital signage realm followed by a roundtable discussion for a broad cross-section of input on these topics.
