The trade association AVIXA has been running a series of Digital Signage Power Hours for the last few months, bringing together industry experts in a roundtable format to talk about a specific topic each time.
The most recent one was about LED, and I was once again the moderator and referee.
The panel had Chris Riegel of STRATACACHE, who among a bazillion things is spinning up a microLED manufacturing facility in Oregon. We also had on the panel Reece Kurtenbach, the CEO of Daktronics, one of the oldest and largest direct view LED firms out there. We had Johanna Ocampo from D3, Rich Ventura from Sony, which introduced the world to large format microLED. Sam Phenix, who runs her own display consulting firm and is deeply involved with AVIXA and SID. And Florian Rotberg, of Munich-based consultancy Invidis.
The session has two parts:
First, there's a brief presentation by Riegel that focuses on microLED and how disruptive it will be in this market.
Then we go into the roundtable, followed by some questions.
If you are involved in or looking at LED, this is well worth the listen.
There is another DS Power Hour coming up on Oct. 20 about QSR. Details here ...
