We may dream in pixels, but we got down and dirty with a brush and some ink for this year's Valentine's Day card. Happy Valentine's Day from the entire Synect team.
Owning the Digital Signage Medium Happens Where Technology & Creative Intersect
The Planar® LookThru™ Series is a new line of transparent, interactive Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays. The LookThru OLED, which comes in 55-inch panels, looks like lightly tinted glass capable of presenting unbelievably vivid digital media on top of real world scenes and objects. The displays can be tiled together to create video walls, and they can also be configured into custom retail merchandising enclosures and displays.
The Synect team hit the 2016 Digital Signage Expo (DSE) recently to see the latest innovations from our vendors, partners, and more than 200 exhibitors at the event. The show features hardware, software, content management, and other solutions for digital signage and video wall networks, and it offers end users and solution providers the chance to connect.
The Synect team is at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas today. The annual event is the world’s largest show dedicated to digital signage, and Synect Founder and CEO Yahav Ran, General Manager John Diamond, Executive Creative Director Nir Bashan, and Project Manager Megann Nielsen are on the ground this year.
Microsoft has launched a flagship store in Australia—its second flagship this month and the first one outside of North America. Just like their new flagship on Fifth Avenue, Microsoft is betting on new devices and services to bring customers to the Sydney flagship, while placing major emphasis on video walls and innovative digital experience to engage those customers at their latest retail locations.
Microsoft launched its first flagship store this week in New York. The world was watching as Microsoft’s flagship store opened its doors on Fifth Avenue to an eager, waiting crowd. Just like the first Microsoft Store, which opened in tandem with the 2009 launch of Windows 7, the Fifth Avenue flagship opened on the launch date of the new Surface Book and Surface Pro 4.
There’s a war being fought in the world of multi display video walls. The war on bezels—driven by the demands of video wall operators who want more immersive, impactful digital canvases—has seen the industry standards shrink from over five millimeters, to around three millimeters, and now to under two millimeters.
