112″ Display Lands on Dude’s Head. He & the Screen Survive to Laugh it off

I am totally blown away at the tale that occurred with a NanoLumens display last week. To make this clear, I WAS OUT OF TOWN…and had absolutely NOTHING to do with it… I promise! :), but here is what happened: One of our partners rented out a display to a customer during a recent live event. Bypassing the words of caution in the owner’s manual, they decided to hang the display...

The Largest Name nobody thinks of in Digital Signage

My colleague and I were in Tampa last week for the AVI-SPL National Sales Convention. If you’ve never heard about these guys then pay attention. They have set themselves apart in the commericial Audio & Visual industry and are steaming into the digital signage marketplace through integrations and relationships with a majority of top US company’s and venues for digital integration....

Too Many Static Signs at the DIGITAL SIGNAGE Expo!

One of the things that caught my attention at DSE last week was the overabundance of static banners above all the display manufacturers’ booths. This to me was crazy…it’s the DIGITAL SIGNAGE Expo and this is what we get from the creators of Digital Signs? There was one beautiful booth however that had two 112″ displays around a circular banner, hanging high in the air for...

What I’d Like to See at DSE

I’m on the plane en route to DSE and am very excited about the week ahead! A big agenda for me at the show is to share the benefits of the NanoLumens offering and what makes our product so unique. Additionally while there, I’m looking for a few key trends and ideas that I believe will further enable success for the industry. Here the few things I’d like to see at DSE: Closer...

Some People I’d like to Meet (Finally) at #DSE2011

This past year marked a time when I’ve built many of my new relationships through digital mediums. Especially in the digital signage world where everyone is so geographically spread out, its hard for me to get in the same room as all the people with whom I share emails, tweets, and Skype calls. This week at DSE, I want to make sure that I make the most of my time and get to know these new &a...

Gearin’ up for Digital Signage Expo

Over here in Norcross, GA, NanoLumens is finishing packing and getting ready for the Digital Signage Expo! Taking place again in good ole Las Vegas, next week’s event is on track to be the best in its relatively short life. This will be my 3rd DSE. More importantly however, this  marks the one year anniversary for NanoLumens & our début of the 112″ flexible video display. It seem...

My Thoughts on European Digital Signage & #ISE2010

I returned to Atlanta this weekend after a two-week trip to Europe. While initially just slated to start and end in Amsterdam for ISE, due to customer orders and a new international distributor, we extended it to include the UK and Germany. For starters, the ISE show was huge! It’s been noted to have had record attendance, which you can see here, and it was no different for us @NanoLumens. I...

Homemade iPad integration

I was a little bummed when I first learned that the iPad wouldn’t natively mirror to a tv. So after a short period just dealing with it, I decided to go seeking for solutions on the webs. This evening, after a bit of research and a call to trusty @mattstech, I went all rogue and jail-broke my iPad. Next up, me and Rick found the “displayout” app from cydia and not too much l...

Sign of the Times (Square)

Bad weather cancelled a meeting today so @wamos80 & I decided to take advantage of our free time by going on a little digital out-of-home tour. After compiling a short list of ads we wanted to see, we hit the road and headed to the mecca of signage- Times Square. Below are the places we visited with a pictures from our phones sprinkled in. I will be diving deeper into these applications over t...

Technology Sitings at #NRF11

My colleague Will & I are in NYC this week for some NanoLumens demos & decided to walk this year’s NRF show. Below are some of the neat technologies we saw there that left an impression on us. For starters, gesture interactivity is IN! after playing a bit of Microsoft Kinect, we went out looking for retail applications for this type of motion sensing technology. Where is the retail...
