Exploring Dynamic Signage
Thursday 19 April 2018
Advances in display technology are enabling wayfinding and customer information signs to be updated dynamically in response to changing circumstances without compromising on the visual quality. At the same time, the robustness has improved along with the affordability, so that investing in digital screens to communicate even relatively static information is no longer out of the question.
About this event
This Talk will feature presentations from two speakers:
E–Paper technology: Ed Griffiths, Jedco
Ed will provide an overview of different display solutions and their applications, focussing in particular on E-Paper technology. He will be accompanied by James Sirmon, Chief Engineer of Papercast, technology supplier and a Jedco client. James will bring along a demo unit to give more detail on E-Paper and software capabilities.
Where am I?: Paul Cook, Inurface Media
Inurface Media is a digital signage solutions specialist. During his talk Paul will look at what’s needed for a successful deployment. Digital solutions, smart though they are, struggle in directing the person stood in front of them unless they can show them: where they are, where they want to get to, the best route to their destination. No matter how good the technology is, design is as important as instruction.
