Epson Project Confidence Speaker Series – Physical Retail Spaces

Epson Speaker Series

The Epson Speaker Series focuses on the future of AV experiences. “The Evolution of Physical Retail Spacesepisode is part of the Digital Experiences conversations and focuses on creating compelling in-store experiences. What exactly is “immersive retail” these days, and how do we measure and create it? Remi Del Mar, product manager for commercial displays and AR solutions at Epson American, Inc., hosted this episode in the form of a Q&A session with Laura Davis-Taylor and Jennifer Acevedo, two thought leaders and influencers in this space.

There’s been an accelerated trend in customer expectations about shopping in stores — people want an experience, not just things. Opportunities in digital transformation include gamification, AR and immersive experiences. But, they need to be marketed with customers and brand in mind. Asking yourself what you can do from a digital perspective will help guide this trend. Marketing of retail needs to bleed into the stories you tell, not just the products you make. Storytelling and branding go hand in hand, and when done correctly, they can expand your retail and the shopper experience. 

Dive into the future of what retail stores could look like in the future, the five “P”s of experience, the opportunities in digital transformation and much more. Yes, you can watch this LAVNCH & LEARN on demand any time you’d like. Head to the Epson Speaker Series page to watch the event today.

What You Need to Know About XR – A LAVNCH & LEARN


This “What You Need to Know About XR” LAVNCH & LEARN gives us an intro to all things XR — what it is, how it’s used and where it’s going. After all, XR is the future of the ProAV market. Megan A Dutta led this session with the help of two XR pros, Meg Athavale of Lumo Interactive Inc and Chris Healer of Eyelash LLC. Megan and the panelists discuss why XR is critical to the future of the AV industry and how you can start using XR in your applications today.

It’s important to learn about XR and what it can do, as the market for XR tech has skyrocketed in the last few years. In 2018, the XR market was a $27 billion industry, and by 2025, it is projected to be a whopping $393 billion industry. But just what exactly is extended reality, and what is the difference between AR, VR, XR and others? According to the experts, augmented reality superimposes something digital into the physical world; virtual reality puts you inside a virtual world; mixed reality uses a combination of these technologies; and extended reality uses a mixture of all of these types of experiences to create a seamless integration of digital elements on the real world. In short, they all build on each other to expand the human experience. 

Jump into an alternate reality and learn about cool projects these pros have worked on, how XR works in the day-to-day office, where the tech could go and much more. You can watch this LAVNCH & LEARN on demand right here.

Well, those are all our most recent and upcoming virtual events! We’ll catch you next time to keep you updated on all things LAVNCH.
