Redefining Prime Time

In the olden days before on-demand and streaming content, broadcasters designed certain hours as “prime time,” that day part when the largest audiences were congregated in front of their TVs. In the States, this was somewhere between 6:00 and 9:00 PM on weekdays. This is where shows like Friends, Seinfield, the Cosby Show, and the like would be found.

You can stream from apps or a cable provider on-demand. Viewers are no longer tethered to their TVs or their homes, with the growth of mobile device More…

“The Clarity® Matrix™ and Planar® PS-Series are the only technologies we’d want to specify for the casino environment,” says Ryan Sullivan, founder of Blue Speed Audio Video. “They both were designed to run 24/7, and they install without the need for extra structure.

Alternatives to a Touch Overlay

Our customers love interactive displays. Over the years, touchscreens and multi-touch displays have become a huge part of our product offering and with no surprise. Interactivity encourages customer engagement, brand loyalty, and brings a livelihood to physical spaces, all with a natural user interface. Customers and integrators may think their only path to interactivity on a video wall or large format display is a third-party touch overlay. Something that could transform their LCD or LED display to an interactive touch screen. But there is an alternative. Leyard (use the company name based on the site) offers a wide variety of products with touch More…

Planar Displays Help Fight Crime

“We’re better able to see a crime that’s either developing or in process, and better equipped to see how best to resolve it,” states Sergeant Joseph Patty of the Memphis Police Department of their recent video wall installation.

What is Digital Signage?

This week, I spoke at the Digital Signage Federation and Digital Signage Expo sponsored panel discussion called “Coffee and Controversy” and one of the questions posed to the panel was whether the name “digital signage” was a benefit or hindrance to the industry. The term has been used by market researchers to describe the kinds of screens that are used in public venues, versus residential, consumer or television products. The term “digital signage” being used as a synonym with “public information displays.” The term has been a catchall for a variety of technologies, ranging from displays to players to content creation for applications ranging from More…
