Wegener Corporation, a leading provider of equipment for digital signage, television, audio, and data distribution networks worldwide, today announced that Ken Leffingwell, Vice President, Worldwide Sales will be presenting during the upcoming Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in Las Vegas.
The presentation is part of the DSE’s Education & Certification program and will explore the pros and cons of satellite and IP file delivery. For retail networks, the presentation will cover how to handle content from multiple sources (e.g., advertisers) and options for hyper localization.
Mr. Leffingwell, who holds a B.S. in Marketing and a M.S. in Information Systems, has more than 30 years of experience in the digital signage, satellite communications, and broadcast industries. He has held various positions including applications engineering, systems engineering, program management and customer services.
“Since the mid-1980s Wegener has focused on managing large networks and the media that flows through them,” stated Troy Woodbury, President and CEO of Wegener Corporation. “Wegener goes beyond simply selling products by providing real solutions to digital signage network challenges.”
Wegener signage players will be on display in the Hyundai IT booth (#410). Wegener will be demonstrating its digital signage products in conjunction with Hyundai’s commercial displays. The digital signage system, based on Wegener’s iPump 526 Media Players, will be used to allow visitors to the booth to view rich content and learn more about the companies’ various offerings.
Separately in Wegener’s private conference room, and in conjunction with Hyundai’s free standing touch screen display, Wegener will be demonstrating its first interactive digital signage product and audience measurement system, powered by IntelliVision, Wegener’s strategic partner in audience measurement.
