Digital Signage Roadshow started at Screenmedia Expo in London

At Screenmedia Expo in London, people from all over Europe gathered to see the latest and greatest in Digital Signage. The show started on 16 May and ended the 17th. AOpen, being an industry leader in digital signage and known for the AOpen media player called Digital Engine, drove into the Expo in a large lorry. Together with its partners Intel, Philips, Microsoft Windows Embedded and Net Display Systems we kicked off the Digital Signage Roadshow. Screenmedia Expo was the first stop of the exhibition suite that will drive across the UK in the next five months. The goal of the roadshow is to show AV integrators, CTO’s, CIO’s and shop-owners real live total solutions for: Retail, Healthcare, Corporate, Education, Transportation and Hospitality.

Between 12 June and 21 September 2012 the Digital Signage Road Show will tour through the UK; 15 locations, 9 partners and 6 signage applications: bringing only the best-of-breed close to your doorstep. Check out the locations here: www.digitalsignageroadshow.com

Connect business applications, data and content management from a single location and let them communicate to one another to support business intelligence and drive sales.

The exhibition suite contains Philips displays: ranging from standard LCD, high brightness, touch, 3D to video wall displays. All displays are connected to the AOpen Engine Core server rack that includes the AOpen Digital Engine media players which are based on the Intel platform and Windows Embedded 7 operating system. Net Display Systems digital signage software PADS runs on all the systems using data integration and intuitive content management to display the content at the right place and time.

This year Screenmedia Expo was a bit smaller compared to last year’s exhibition, main reason being that partners are collaborating and sharing booth space. Nevertheless the show offered a unique product selection and it was interesting to see more complete solutions. Just like AOpen, Intel, Microsoft, Net Display Systems and Philips who joined their forces.
