All begin the show talking about the Digital Signage Federation (DSF), for which Rich is the Chairman, and Alan announces recent additions to the Board, including one person who is on this show. Alan expounds on the DSF as former chairman as well as being a long time educator, and later Rich has a special announcement where Alan’s long time involvement is concerned. Stephanie talks about the DSF and her involvement now within the organization.

Andrea then talks about the Women of Digital Signage group, Katye, Alan and Stephanie also add to the discussion. Stephanie begins discussion about what’s happening at Broadsign, talking about a focus on sales tools and additions to their tech stack for 2018. She also talks about where the AV industry is going concerning digital signage, and Lauren adds to the discussion being from the commercial AV side. Rich then talks about the DSF, the digital signage industry, NEC and also follows up on AV, digital signage and display perspective. There’s some “connected” discussion here too.

Rich starts the trade show talk with ISE 2018 and the technologies there, as well as how he’ll be getting around the show. In the midway there’s the beer talk, and we also find out who our designated podcaster is. We also talk about a hall of fame induction – you do have to hear this discussion. Rich also makes that special announcement here.

We turn to Andrea who discusses this award as well as industry support, and then DSE 2018, as she briefly discusses the show and what will be taking place there – and more to come on The AV Life prior to the show. Stick around as Alan closes up with some important commentary on digital signage including content, analytics, IoT, the DSE, DSF and the Digital Signage Experts Group.
