    Digital Signage Expo 2011

    Digital Signage Expo 2011 was held in Convention centre in Las Vegas, USA. Even though there was a exhibition hall for this Expo, Las Vegas looks like a one exhibition. It is brighter outside than inside of exhibition. However, there are virtuality and reality both. The place where virtuality is becoming reality is Digital Signage Expo.

    Hardware, software, and contents
    The main theme of the 8th Digital Signage Expo, which started from 2004 is realization of virtuality. If they showed hardware, software, and contents each in the previous exhibition, it formed a trinity at this Expo. Originally, they could not be existed each. There was no option but to develop at the beginning, but everything has to be consolidated. It is not only physical combination simply, but also can be changed in chemical structure.

    Before, the digital signage mainly focused on giving information but now customers do not want to get just simple information anymore. They can get it anywhere nowadays. We have to concentrate on how we delivery the information to customers. It is not just showing of the price. It must stimulate their buying psychology with information.

    For example, it is difficult to get detailed information about wine if the customers are not experts. They just buy it by sommelier's recommend. Explanation is mostly written in English or French at the back of wine bottle, and only basic information is written in Korean. So it is not useful. Kiost solution of RedDotNet is the solution to solve these problems. If they just put the name of wine, all information of wine are shown such as country of origin, price, and opinions of people who already tasted.

    It is not only for wine. It is possible to apply to all kinds of products. This display is a product with good ideas when they buy the products like a wine, liquor, and electronics, etc.

    Various business models to be reality
    TRI-TUBE of Fingertouch is one of the attractable digital signage at exhibition. This solution can make people understand with three displays from the triangular prism. One side displays the original features of product and they deliver product's image sensuously through analog display on other side. Also they show all information about the product with interactive technology on third side. TRI-TUBE gives people images and information at once by rotating. This display is suitable for new product launching show to the consumers as they show the best solutions to them.

    Also, Intel Co., Mirror LCD of LG Electronics Inc and 3D Multi-Vision of Hyundai IT Co., use this kind of display and get attention of customers. This solution is very good to obtain advertising effect in short-term.

    It was a good opportunity to see various business models in Digital Signage Expo 2011. Descriptively, the place where virtuality is becoming reality is Digital Signage Expo. And, everything starts from virtuality. People naturally accept it as the one solution, they do not confuse virtuality and reality. And, commercial plan also is set on it. This exhibition showed this possibility to us.
