Tech Tuesday: The Interactive Wall
Tech Tuesday highlights some of the best and brightest ideas in the tech world. ABCey would like to recognize these up and coming companies for their innovative ideas and ability to think outside the box!
Being an event planner, we’ve attended conferences and presentations of all kinds. Some of the least memorable include lots of talking, little visuals and minimal audience engagement. Well, there’s a groundbreaking technology that utilizes an Interactive Wall that is changing the way speakers communicate with their audiences.
You may have first seen this type of interactive video wall during the election coverage and now it’s available for events! One company providing this service is PSAV, a leading audiovisual provider that has services all over the world, and even right here in San Francisco. These interactive walls have 46-inch square screens configured in either a two-by-two or three-by-three format. If that is not sufficient enough, custom screens of any size can be created. The wall essentially operates like a large iPad with over two dozen apps that create maps, presentations, and games.
An interactive wall can also be used for many purposes, being educational or for digital signage. If used for a trade show, the wall can display logos and information specific to a certain vendor. What we love most is that it enables planners to present their ideas in a digital way specific to their themes, while also providing sponsorship and advertising opportunities. To learn more about how this interactive wall works, check out the video below!
