How Are Display Stands Becoming Hi-Tech?


From jewellery to technology, companies in all industries are turning to trade shows as a way to market their products on a wide scale. As competition gets more intense, the sales tactics – and the display stands – used by exhibitors are getting better and better, every single year.









Whether it’s LCD television displays or bizarre, innovative design features, we took a look at the unique characteristics that are making today’s display stands less about the traditional corporate branding and more about presenting a hi-tech image.




1.Digital displays to give a hi-tech, sleek look


A growing number of companies are investing in digital displays to give their stands an edge over the competition. Trade shows are all about attracting attention, and it’s tough to beat a flashy, bright display when it comes to attracting passers-by.


From small businesses to mega-corporations, lots of businesses are requesting LCD displays when they hire exhibition stands.



2. Bright, eye-catching neon signage


Neon might not be ultra-modern, but it’s rapidly becoming the standard for bright, eye-catching trade show displays. From neon borders to logos, a growing number of businesses are investing in old-fashioned neon signage for their trade show booths.

Aside from neon signage, many businesses are opting for standard printed signage with a powerful lighting backdrop. This allows them to create a more detailed and impressive logo than a neon display would normally allow.


3.
Touchscreens and cool user interfaces


Training a sales team is time-consuming and expensive. To allow their sales team to focus on the most valuable prospects, many businesses are installing touchscreens in their display stands to help visitors that are interested, but not that interested.


Touchscreen displays can be configured to show off your business’s latest creations, answer common pre-sale customer questions, or list contact information for your sales or customer support team.




4. Live, on-site social networking


Social media is taking over trade shows. Many booths, particularly those in the tech industry, now have their own Wi-Fi Internet signal and social media information for visitors.


All of this is for a good reason – to encourage drop-in visitors and prospects to reach the company’s sales team on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and, for many B2B businesses, LinkedIn.


Sales teams are increasingly turning to social media to close the deal. Is your booth prepped for Internet connectivity and social networking, or is it still designed for an old fashioned approach to marketing?

The World of Monitors and Projectors


No matter what type of business you operate, you’re going to need computers. That means you’ll need computer monitors. Monitors are vital considerations for all businesses, as they provide the means to see what’s going on and actually interact with the computer. However, they’re not all the same and you’re going to need a few tips to ensure that you get the right solution for your needs.





Not All Monitors Are the Same

First, if you’re currently using (or even thinking of buying) old style CRT monitors, think again. While they do offer the advantage of longevity, they’re really not a good solution. In fact, you’ll find that they’re really not widely available except in used condition. Instead, opt for flat-panel technology.
When it comes to flat-panel computer monitors, LCD technology reigns supreme. You’ll find other technologies out there, but LCD screens are the most affordable, and most beneficial for your business. Of course, you’ll find that technology varies here, as well.


What to Buy

When talking about computer monitors, size seems to be the first thing that buyers gravitate towards. However, it’s really not all about size. The key word in computer monitors is resolution. Ideally, you’ll purchase a monitor that offers 1920 by 1080 resolution (that’s full HD). Lower resolutions can work with smaller monitors (think under 25 inches). However, HD monitors are cheaper than television sets with the same resolution (so you don’t need to worry about bankrupting yourself here).
Of course, size does matter. You’ll find that larger monitors offer significant benefits, including reduced eyestrain and the ability to really maximize screen real estate. Larger monitors also facilitate multitasking by allowing users to have more than one window open side by side.


Touch Screen Technology

Touch screen technology is hot right now, thanks in large part to smartphones and tablets. You’ll find that touch screen monitors are available for purchase and use with your computer system, but these might not be the right choice for you. In all reality, having a touch screen really doesn’t offer any benefits for the average business user, though they can be ideal solutions in some situations (particularly those where a physical keyboard is unwanted).
If you choose to go the touch screen route, understand that you’ll be paying more and potentially shelling out more cash for a technology that won’t really be used. Think long and hard about that decision before you choose your monitor.


Monitors for Telecommunications

If you’ll be purchasing monitors to set up a teleconference center, there are a few things to consider. First, do you want a single large monitor that all attendees can see, or several smaller monitors for individual communication sessions? Will the monitor need to display several different conference callers at the same time, or just one? How much space do you have available to you?


Projectors

Projectors are vital tools in the business world, and offer the ability to collaborate, share information in a meeting and more. Projectors are very different from monitors, though. When it comes to projection technology, you’ll find that DLP is currently the reigning champion. This offers excellent picture clarity and high definition, and it’s relatively affordable. There are quite a few resolutions available, but the general rule of thumb is buy the highest resolution you can afford. You’ll also want to make sure that you get the right connection type – USB is the most versatile, but not all projectors connect via USB. Some have to connect via monitor connections, so make sure you choose carefully here.
Choosing the right monitor or projector doesn’t have to be an onerous chore – choose wisely based on the tips above.

Samsung To Spin Off LCD Business As Samsung Display

We have been hearing rumors over the last few week that Samsung has intended to spin off its LCD business into a separate company, and Samsung has now confirmed that its LCD’s will now be made by Samsung Display.
Samsung Display will be separated from its parent company, on the 1st of April, and the new company will launch with $667.3 million of working capital.



Samsung has apparently decided to move its LCD business to a new company to keep its core business profitable, as the performance of its LCD business hasn’t been as profitable as other areas of the company.
Samsung makes LCD displays for a number of devices and companies, although it has been concentrating more and more on OLED displays, which can be found in its latest smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Phillips Launching New Dual-view Gaming TVs During 2012

Phillips has announced that during the second quarter of 2012 it will be rolling out new ranges of HDTVs that will be equipped with a dual-view mode, perfect for multiplayer gaming on the same screen.
The new dual-view technology that we have featured here on Tech news 24h previously, enables two gamers to play on the same full screen, but see different views. In a similar way you can dual-view game on Sony’s 3D display.

The new dual-view or SimulView technology allows one gamers to wear a pair 3D of glasses to see one image, while a second pair of glasses is worn by the other gamers, who sees a second image on the same screen. The technology works by splitting the 3D signal, which is originally two images left and right, and shows only what the left eye would normally see to one set of glasses and the other to the right set.
The new HDTVs that will be equipped with the new dual-view technology are the Philips 6000 and 7000 series references : PFL6007 and PFL7007 and will range from 32-inches to 55-inches.
Currently Sony’s PS3 3D display dual-view technology only works with compatible equipped with support for the feature. So it will be interesting to see if Philips’ new line if HDTVs will support all video games straight out of the box. Unfortunately no information on pricing or specific worldwide availability has been released as yet.

iFixit Dismantles Apple’s Thunderbolt Display

The iFixit team has been busy once again with their screwdrivers and have this time dismantled Apple’s new 27″ inch Thunderbolt display exposing its technology to the world.



For a recap the new Apple Thunderbolt Display is equipped with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 with 16:9 Widescreen Aspect Ratio and is equipped with a FaceTime HD Camera with Microphone and 49 Watt 2.1 Speaker System. The main thing that has surprised iFixit and us is the sheer amount of technology that is packed into the Apple Display and the number of chips included. iFixit uses the technical term “oodles of chips”.


iFixit explain:
“Interestingly enough, the Thunderbolt cable that routes into the display also plugs into a standard Thunderbolt socket on the logic board. Apple could have just soldered the cable wires to the board, but instead chose to implement a cover that prevents the cable from being detached from the logic board’s Thunderbolt socket.”
