In times of unique demand, I’m constantly impressed by innovations in the digital signage market in particular.
Take Allsee Technologies. In “Lessons Learned by a Digital Signage Manufacturer During COVID-19,” Chloe Weaver tells us her story of how the 13-year-old manufacturer faced the same struggles (lack of cash flow; lack of interest) many of you digital signage #AVtweeps are probably facing today. Weaver writes, “To say that the coronavirus pandemic has caused problems for the digital signage industry would be an understatement … But this extreme situation has also taught us a lot about how we should operate, not only during crises but also on a day-to-day basis when things return to some kind of normality.”
Find the story below to see how (if? — I won’t spoil the surprise) the manufacturer stepped up to the plate. It’s a good read.
Also this week, you’ll see that Nasdaq-listed Neonode (a company with solutions for optical touch, gesture control and remote sensing) was granted another 13.9 milli in investment funds. I learned today that, to date, Neonode’s technology has been deployed in more than 75 million products in consumer electronics, office equipment, medical and more.
That, plus “5 Ways to Use Digital Signage in Higher Education” and a fine collection of product news from LG to Vivitek and more below.
To say that the coronavirus pandemic has caused problems for the digital signage industry would be an understatement. As a digital signage manufacturer, these past few months have been some of the hardest in the company’s history. But this extreme situation has also taught us a lot about how we should operate, not only during crises but also on a day-to-day basis when things return to some kind of normality. I wanted to share the challenges we faced, how we overcame them, and the lessons we learned along the way — in the hopes that our experiences can help other companies survive these tough times.
