DSE Disrupted Tech Talk Approaching Sold Out
February 5, 2014 by Dave Haynes
The Digital Signage Expo team tells me the seminar on Disrupted Technology that I’m chairing/moderating/referee’ing a week today ion Las Vegas is approaching sold out.
There were 100 registrants as of today and the room can take a dozen or so more. So … let’s sell it out!!!
The session is Wed. Feb. 12 at 4, at one of the conference rooms for DSE, which are … somewhere at or near the Sand’s Expo.
It sadly runs at the same time as cocktail hour with Four Winds and Synnex on the show floor, which makes me sad. But then again, I have three other cocktail things that evening, so this is probably a good problem.
Session S13, from 4 to 5 on the 12th, is bluntly called: DIGITAL SIGNAGE DISRUPTED.
In this session, participants will discover how rapidly emerging technologies like ARM devices, HTML5 and RaspberryPi are dramatically changing the landscape for end-users and vendors.
My panelists are a solid bunch:
- John Wang, CEO of the device and integrated display manufacturer IAdea. John’s focus will be HTML5 and the proliferation of new display types out there;
- Raffi Vartian, COO of the SaaS software firm signagelive, which has always tried to stay ahead or at pace with technology advances. Raffi will just be back from ISE in Amsterdam, where he will have seen and had demo’d a pile of tech that will find its was next week to DSE;
- Bryan Crotaz, who built a software firm and sold it to AMX, and is now really pushing the technology envelope by turning Raspberry Pi’s into very viable playback devices. Crotaz is coming off announcements this past week about his company’s industrial-grade Raspberry Pi player.
We’ll cover Pi, HTML5, Android, system on chip “smart” displays, 4k and a broader look at the future state of technology as it applies to this sector.
