In any profession, continuing education is critical to staying on top of your game. And as both a student and a teacher in the digital signage industry, I find there’s always something new to learn or a fresh perspective to be had.
To that end, I was extremely happy to be involved with a professional development event SNA Displays recently hosted at our New York headquarters in the iconic Times Square bow tie. The event was a resounding success as we had a full house of respected designers, integrators, technology experts, and experiential consultants in the New York area.
SNA Displays is committed to being a continuing-education resource to this community, as we know much of our best, most recognizable work was enabled by the best thinkers and technologists in our industry. So, we’re thrilled to play host for events where these folks can earn a few CTS credits and share some social time with their peers.
Titled From Pixels to Processing: Specifying a World-Class Display Solution, the overall theme of the seminar was how the right solution for the ideal LED display system is far more than the sum of individual components. From display hardware to mounting systems, content, and backend software, a world-class digital canvas brings together the best of all trades. As part of the event, James Fife from RP Visual Solutions, Seth Teates from Analog Way, and I gave one-hour presentations covering a variety of topics pertinent to the digital signage industry.
Attendees earned three Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) credits, which of course count toward AVIXA certification requirements for AV professionals. I think everyone enjoyed the shared social time with peers, too.
Digital signage veteran Randy Pagnan was instrumental in facilitating Pixels to Processing and graciously helped us assemble a wonderful learning session. It was an honor to work with him.
Stay tuned for announcements as we offer similar learning events in other cities.
