CHICAGO – Aug. 27, 2019 – NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial digital signage solutions, is taking its popular annual NEC Showcase on the road, bringing the latest in visual technology and solutions directly to its partners and end users across North America. This year, in addition to the New York Technology Showcase being held during Digital Signage Week, NEC Display will hold a Showcase in Chicago, Toronto, San Jose, Calif., and Orange County, Calif.

Now in its 26th year, the NEC Showcase gives organizations, partners, systems integrators, consultants and business professionals a firsthand look at the latest NEC Display innovations in LCD, LED, video wall and projector technologies — along with business analytic solutions, mounts, media players, collaboration and other tools from NEC’s premier partners in the professional AV and IT industries. Premier Showcase Partners this year include Peerless-AV, Legrand, Brightsign, Crestron, Glass-Media, Next/Now, and Intel.

“Instead of having our partners and end users come to us to experience our latest visual solutions, we’re taking the entire showcase to them,” said Todd Bouman, CEO, NEC Display Solutions. “The showcases this year will once again focus on the applications and solutions that we bring to market along with the opportunity to hear from industry experts and earn CTS credits.”

Featured technology this year includes NEC ALP Pro, the CB Series Collaboration Solution, direct view LED, laser installation projectors, and the latest in large format displays and LCD video walls. Showcase attendees will have the opportunity to learn best practices in privacy, security, engaging and influencing consumer behavior, and making digital interactions more dynamic. In addition, each showcase will provide valuable insights on measuring and establishing digital practices based on analytics.
