Webinar: Trends and Best Practices in Interactive Displays

Join us live, Wednesday, December 13, at 1 p.m. EST to learn what key buzzwords such as “collaboration,” “mirroring,” “touch” and “sharing” really mean in the modern touch-screen environment. Saundra Merollo of Sharp will  discuss applications, industry trends, and best practices.

In an age of IoT, interactive displays are prevalent nearly everywhere. They can be found in a classroom as teaching tools, just outside an elevator as an interactive directory, and even in hospital lobbies, where they can be used to check in patients. Touch displays surround us, and the need for these displays continues to grow.

At EDUCAUSE This Week? See AVI-SPL’s Advanced Viz Display

If you’re an educator interested in learning about the newest technology, you or your colleagues have good reason to be at this week’s EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, the premier event for IT professionals and technology providers in higher education. The conference’s exhibition, which is Nov. 1 – 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philly, creates networking opportunities for colleagues to talk bout their strategies, programs, what’s working, and what isn’t.

When you visit AVI-SPL at booth #2301, you’ll see a Barco cave display we’ve set up for guests, and you’ll learn about advanced visualization and how the technology is being used in higher ed.

About Cave Displays (taken from the Barco Cave Displays page)

A cave display is a multi-sided immersive environment that offers great levels of immersion. Barco cave displays can have any number of sides, ranging from two to six, in any size you want. Furthermore, caves are completely customizable to your specific demands, and can be a fixed or transportable installation with rigid or flexible screens, high or lower resolutions, with active or passive 3D, or even both.

In this map of the exhibitor floor plan, you’ll find AVI-SPL at the bottom left. We’ve got friendly faces there who want to talk to you, demonstrate our value to higher ed, and leave you with a good impression about trusting your project to AVI-SPL.

At the EDUCAUSE event website, you can register to attend. Amidst the mass of people and rows of booths, we’ll make you feel welcome. See you there.
