If you followed our coverage of Digital Signage Expo 2018, you’ll know that there was a pretty impressive turnout. Now, just a few months later, another wave of techies descends upon Las Vegas. And this wave contains even more display technology and digital signage solutions.
The display technology at InfoComm 2018 will likely continue the trend towards higher resolutions and analytics-enabled devices. But the problem, like with any product category at InfoComm 2018, is that there’s so much to see in so little time.
So start here with just a few of the digital signage solutions currently receiving lots of chatter.
