Philadelphia - Almo Professional A/V, the commercial arm of national majap and CE distributor Almo, will be out in full force at next week's Digital Signage Expo (DSE).
The event runs March 6-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Almo, at booth 631, plans to showcase seven video walls in different configurations, as well as two test-drive stations that will give attendees the opportunity to try out content-creation/management options, the company said.
Almo will showcase the latest digital signage products resulting from new and exclusive distribution agreements with manufacturers including NanoLumens, Planar, Christie MicroTiles and BrightSign, and is also sponsoring and participating in several educational sessions throughout the show.
"Our booth theme is â€˜Digital Signage Your Way,'" explained Melody Craigmyle, marketing VP for Almo Professional A/V. "We have made our booth a red carpet experience for attendees by allowing them to come in and explore in a hands-on environment with their very own â€˜digital signage concierge' to guide the way.
She continued, "The Almo booth experience is different because it's not about one specific manufacturer. We work with our integrators to help them build one-of-a-kind systems for a specific project using displays, content management, signal distribution and everything else necessary for a full digital signage installation."
New lines include:
â€¢ NanoLumens line of ultra-slim and lightweight flexible and rigid LED displays for use in spaces previously impossible with traditional displays;
â€¢ Planar Systems' large-scale video wall and digital display systems, including the new Silhouette display and stand, a 10-foot-tall sculptural implementation of video for architectural applications. It includes four LCD screens configured on a free-standing base, the required display and processing electronics, and all required installation services, and;
â€¢ The Christie MicroTiles JumpStart content-management package, which allows content to be easily arranged in various shapes and resolutions on a large video wall.
The two test-drive stations will be run with content-management systems using AMX's Inspired XPress and BrightSign's Digital Sign Controller. Attendees can use these systems and publish projects live and on the fly in the Almo booth.
