AV and Advertising: The New Normal

In News by cbetton

By 2020, just 4 years from now, the global market for digital signage products will be an estimated $20bn with the retail, healthcare and hospitality sectors driving growth. AV solutions can now offer much more than just static displays, with applications that can attract, entertain, interact and help in a number of ways.

Digital SignageAs seen at the recent Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, the applications available today are in a whole different league when compared to those of the market just a few years ago! The days of AV being just for information dissemination are well and truly over, with installations now finding success in entertainment, architecture, e-commerce, retail and even automotive design!

In many ways, 2016 is the year of the display with LG showing off some incredibly thin commercial OLED displays that can be applied to solutions ranging from luxury retail to transportation management. Whilst AV technology is revolutionary in its own right, what’s also surprising are the diverse applications that come from the software that run it. Touch screen interfaces on vending machines, interactive mirrors in fitting rooms, location-based advertisements in vehicles, navigation aids in retail areas – the imagination behind the technology is now just as progressive as the technology itself.
