Digital Signage Certified Experts (DSCE) Course
Digital signage represents the fastest growing segment of the commercial AV, IT, traditional signage, content creation, and marketing industries. It has far-reaching implications as a mainstream communication medium and opens expansive new markets and opportunities for network providers, systems integrators, and end users alike. Beneath the surface, however, it is a complex web of interconnected technologies and best practices acting together to create the images we see on screen. The DSCE is designed to help you meet the challenges this creates by providing a fundamental understanding of the digital signage industry. Understand the 7 Key Elements of Digital Signage and how they individually impact the industry and interact one another. This course takes a business-oriented approach that will allow you to master the formulas for successful planning a digital signage network including design, hardware and software selection, deployment, content creation and ROI/ROO for digital signage rollouts.

Note: The DSCE exam will be offered online following the course. Review materials will also be available. After successfully passing the exam, you will receive a digital certificate of completion.

How Cities Can Use Digital Billboards to Create Economic Development and Improve Public Spaces
There is a rising affinity between people, cities and large-format digital out-of-home media (DOOH). For the City of West Hollywood, in which its billboards along Sunset Strip have made the area famous, the transition to digital is serving as an opportunity to create public benefit and provide a baseline for long-term economic development.

Integrated Brand Experiences: The Future of Retail is Now
Retail brands face the largest disruption in history. The luxury retail category is among the most competitive, tasked with defining the future of retail. Brands will no longer win solely on badge value. They must connect emotionally in order to create brand advocates that will define their brand essence. But how do you do this? Marcos Terenzio, VP Creative & Strategy at iGotcha Media will discuss the evolving role and importance of digital experience within physical retail, and how it will help win back brand advocacy. Innovation is a function of discontinuity, and we are experiencing the biggest disruption yet. Earning brand loyalty and advocacy is going to be harder than ever.

DSE 2022 Opening Keynote with Refik Anadol: Space in the Mind of a Machine
If machines can “learn” or “process” individual and collective memories, can they also dream or hallucinate about them? Since 2016, Refik Anadol Studio has been conducting interdisciplinary research on the relation between the human mind, architecture, and aesthetics to speculate responses to these questions. In taking the data that flows around us as his primary material and the neural network of a computerized mind as his collaborator, Anadol has been reflecting on new forms of narrating collective memory in physical and virtual spaces, including the blockchain. Coining the terms “AI Data Painting,” “AI Data Sculpture,” and “latent cinema,” Refik Anadol has invited his audience to imagine alternative and dynamic realities by re-defining the functionalities of both interior and exterior architectural elements. He tackles this by moving beyond the integration of media into built forms and translating the logic of a new media technology into spatial design. In this talk he'll share his studio's site-specific parametric data sculptures, live audio/visual performances, immersive installations, and NFTs, which collectively offer a dramatic rethinking of our many environments.

Case Study: Curved dvLED Displays Dazzle at Savoy Automobile Museum
The new Savoy Automobile Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, isn’t your typical museum. In addition to memorializing the history of the automobile with exhibits and events, the new 65,000-square-foot institution leverages the latest in dvLED display technology from LG Business Solutions USA and mounting innovations from Peerless-AV to deliver captivating video content and provide digital canvases for private events or sponsors to display messages and films. The museum aimed to maximize the utility of its interior spaces to host events like a new vehicle launch using the theater’s rotating stage and 18-foot by 31-foot curved dvLED display, or offer a unique wedding venue and have videos broadcast on the 10-foot by 24-foot curved, tilted display in the great hall. These displays are most impressive because they aren’t flat – they’re curved – requiring precision engineered custom mounting solutions and an expert team with the right skill set to achieve an awe-inspiring digital experience.

Transform Your Talent Pipeline
Digital signage is a dynamic industry in which technical and creative professionals can flourish. So why is it so difficult to find and recruit talent? Invariably, when an integration company is asked about their top challenges, they put recruiting at or near the top of the list. One obstacle is that the digital signage integration industry exists in a bubble. Those attending DSE are aware of the great career opportunities but so many others have no idea the industry exists – and therefore won’t become your next generation of great employees. In this session, learn strategies for bursting through that bubble and transforming your talent pipeline. You’ll walk away with a to-do list of steps you can take not just to expand your search but to create better career paths for your existing talent.

In-Flight Sales Analysis in DOOH: A New Way of Measuring Effectiveness
DOOH has long been considered as a medium that delivers on upper funnel performance metrics like audience reach and brand awareness. While this is still true, 91% of advertisers believe DOOH contributes to both upper and lower funnel key performance indicators. Lower funnel metrics are often measured at the end of a campaign, but in-flight sales analysis (ISA) allows marketers to understand how DOOH exposure influences consumer purchase behavior. This session will explain how ISA works, why advertisers are using ISA, what information ISA brings to buyers and how advertisers can learn from it, and why it is useful in an omnichannel campaign.

Digital Menu Boards: The Value Proposition for Brands and Customers
With QSRs having upwards of 70% of transactions at drive thru, digital menu boards (DMBs) are becoming a when, not if. McDonald’s reached near complete system rollout of drive thru DMBs in early 2020, and RBI’s brands (Burger King, Tim Horton’s and Popeyes) will be the next to achieve scale. With this large, deployed footprint, brands are investing heavily in drive thru menu board experience, and McDonald’s already has “pay with stored card” functionality for drive thru transactions. Drive thru DMBs provide a unique opportunity to affect the highest proportion of your guests, arguably making this your most important digital channel – it is not just a menu. Achieving success with digital menu boards requires collaboration across customer experience, merchandising, technology and data. This session will help you understand the value proposition for digital menu boards – for both your brand and your customers – and get you started on a path that will set your organization up for success.

Retail Media Networks: Why Consumers and Advertisers are Leaning into DOOH
The biggest retailers are merging their online and offline solutions to enable a seamless customer experience however shoppers wish to make their purchases.

Google Keynote: Redefine Your Customer Experience With Modern Kiosk and Signage Solutions
According to the Logicalis 2021 Global CIO Survey, 81% of CIOs believe that redefining the customer and employee experience will become increasingly important in the next five years. However, traditional platforms and legacy solutions are unable to keep up with these rising expectations. Current kiosk and digital signage solutions are expensive, unreliable, and overly complex, and businesses need technology that modernizes their experience without the difficulties involved in traditional systems. In this presentation, you’ll learn how cloud-based platforms reduce maintenance requirements and give your team the power to remotely manage any deployed device to deliver seamless experiences and become a leader in digital transformation. You'll also hear from one of Google's customers, Schnucks, and the process they took to choose a digital signage solution.
