GVExpo, November 30-December 1 at Washington DC Convention Center



Sep 19, 2005, 01:00 ET from CMP Media

    NEW YORK, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- GVExpo and ActiveLight have joined
 forces to present the new Digital Signage Zone area at the upcoming
 GovernmentVideo and Technology Expo (GVExpo), November 30-December 1 at the
 Washington DC Convention Center.
     Now in its eighth year, GVExpo is the premier government video, broadcast,
 AV, and multimedia event. Sponsored by GovernmentVideo and Videography
 magazines, the event is produced by CMP Media. The Digital Signage Zone will
 highlight the show floor which features more than 300 exhibitors. The special
 area will include products and services used to implement digital signage
 strategies such as narrowcasters, digital signage control software, display
 technology, video routing and distribution, graphical and content creation
 software, and technology integrators supplying digital signage elements.
     Given the convergence of technology, many professionals working in video
 and multimedia in government agencies, departments and installations are also
 now working to produce content for digital signage. Also termed
 "narrowcasting," "digital in-store merchandising," "wayfinding," and
 "electronic billboards," digital signage is the fastest growing segment of the
 digital display industry. Its applications are found in nearly all public
 spaces, including airports, museums, hospitals, and educational facilities.
     "The addition of the digital signage area within the hall and including it
 as a conference topic at GVExpo evolved as we started to see more of the
 show's attendees becoming actively involved with the creation of electronic
 signage, and begin looking for solutions within our Exhibit Hall," says Linda
 Cohen, Show Director, GVExpo. "Having ActiveLight, one of the leading
 suppliers in the marketplace, show such support and initiative in creating the
 new show floor area only verifies the high interest level," Cohen continues.
     ActiveLight is the leading authority in digital signage. The company
 embraces the concept of signage from beginning to implementation, and offers
 complete, turnkey digital signage solutions-including assistance with content,
 technology and logistics. Research and training website Digital Signage Forum
 is also lending support to the show as a Media Sponsor of GVExpo
     In addition to showcasing the latest technologies in digital signage,
 there will be free educational sessions open to all attendees in the GVExpo
 Digital Signage Presentation Theater on the show floor, and a more in-depth
 presentation is also included in the accompanying GovernmentVideo Conference
 Program. On November 30, Digital Signage Quarterly will present the "Digital
 Signage Solutions" session at 3:00 p.m. This session will examine the various
 elements involved in implementing digital signage, including content creation,
 display technology and control systems. Attendees will also learn how digital
 signage can be an important tool for spreading messages to employees and the
 general public, how to evaluate needs, how to maintain a system and how to
 measure ROI. Moderated by David Keene, Executive Editor of Digital Signage
 Quarterly, scheduled session speakers include Brad Gleeson of ActiveLight and
 Steven Platt of The Platt Institute. Digital Signage Quarterly is published by
 CMP Media in partnership with Active Light.
     GVExpo will be held November 30 and December 1 at the Washington DC
 Convention Center. The Digital Signage Zone is open to all registered
 attendees and will be found on the show floor. The GVExpo show floor will be
