Upcoming Webinars On Content, Data-Driven Signage

I’m involved in a couple of upcoming webinars in the next couple of weeks.

On Wednesday at 2 pm, the Digital Signage Federation has a panel discussion/bun fight on “the age old questions around content for digital signage.”

Questions our panelists will discuss include:

  • My software let’s me make unlimited zones, how many should I create? (my preview answer – ONE, dammit!)
  • How often should content rotate?
  • How much moving content can you have on a display at once?
  • What font size is ideal to ensure my audience can read it?
  • How long (in seconds) should full video be displayed?
  • Is 4K effective?
  • If audio is used, how do you do it?
  • What about third party content like news, weather, and sports?

There are three on the panel – Jim Nista from Insteo, Rob Adams from Omnivex, and me from my spare bedroom.

It’s free and you register here: http://digitalsignagefederation.com/event-2175257

Next Tuesday, I’m up seeing the folks at Omnivex in the north part of Toronto for a free webinar on how data can be used to drive digital signage. It’s more of a chat than a presentation, as I toss questions at Omnivex President Jeff Collard about how this stuff is done. Omnivex was doing data-driven digital signage a decade and more before pretty much anyone else in the sector.

The session, Tuesday, June 21, from 1:00pm – 2:00 pm EST – will look at:

  • Business benefits organizations can achieve by integrating real-time information into their digital signage;
  • Where digital signage is headed in order to fulfill the promise of this rapidly evolving technology;
  • Best practice examples of organizations that use information and data to run their digital networks and types of real-time information they are integrating into their signage.
