May 11th, 2009 — Close to a dozen end user case studies will be featured at the 2nd Annual Digital Signage Technology Summit, to be held on June 16 and 17, 2009 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

The benefits of digital signage as an affordable and effective way to communicate in real-time have been realized by many industries and organizations.

“For me, digital signage is all about information exchange and enhancing the experience,” said Michael Kilgore, vice president of marketing at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. “We’re able to provide information and entertainment as people approach our theaters.”

The center is leveraging the sight and sound capabilities of digital signage to create a rich and immersive experience for show attendees, which in addition to programming, “can be a competitive advantage,” said Kilgore who is speaking at the Summit. Other end user case studies include:

• Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
• Lockheed Martin Aeronautics
• Jyske Bank (Denmark)
• Georgia Aquarium
• SAIT Polytechnic (Calgary, Canada)
• The University of Texas at El Paso
• Art Institutes & South University
• Newseum
• Central Florida Community College
• Taft Stettinius & Hollister, LLP

The event is being held as part of the InfoComm line up and is the second year of partnership between Strategy Institute and the worldwide leader in audio-visual exhibitions.

“InfoComm looks forward to partnering again with the Strategy Institute, and promoting the digital signage education that is essential to understanding this vital segment of the AV industry,” said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director, InfoComm International.

"Topics to be covered include the different applications of digital signage, technology selection, implementation, management and more” said Yashod Bhardwaj, Project Manager at Strategy Institute. He indicated that delegate attendees will include The World Bank, CBCI Telecom, Cornell University, Laser Light Engines, Modern Age Plastics, South East Community College, Social Security TV, Sypro Optics, Wayne State University, SmithSonian Institution, Beckman Consulting, Danville Area Community College, University of Toronto, Indico and many other public and private institutions who wish to learn more about the technology and are really motivated and ready to invest in Digital Signage.
