The Art of Impactful Digital Signage Content Creation 

LOOKBEYOND23 offered important insights for businesses seeking to utilise digital signage. It emphasised the critical nature of having a well-defined strategy and comprehending the target audience. Without these elements, even the most advanced digital signage solutions can fall flat.

During his session on Creating Digital Signage Content, Yan Mulder, a seasoned digital signage content designer, delved into the role of digital signage software in creating impactful marketing campaigns. To put it in a nutshell, Yan stressed the need for a well-defined strategy that outlines the purpose, target audience, design, and placement of digital signage content. He warned that digital signage can become just another screen displaying random content without a clear strategy.


Samsung's VXT Update: The Future of Content Management Systems


The speakers also emphasised the significance of selecting software that is in line with the company's strategy and goals, while being user-friendly and manageable. Here is where Samsung VXT shines according to Pete Colquitt, the Business Development Manager and Project Lead at Samsung Electronics. During his LOOKBEYOND23 session, Pete took attendees on a virtual tour of the latest advancements in Samsung's VXT platform, providing a firsthand look at how VXT is reshaping the digital signage landscape. With features such as real-time analytics and dynamic content scheduling, VXT promises to be the next big CMS from Samsung. 

Using Gesture Control, NFC and Trigger-based Sensors to Elevate The Customer Experience 

Another key lesson was the power of making the customer experience more interactive. With advances in technology, digital signage now offers the potential for elevating marketing strategies by leveraging gesture control technologies. At LOOKBEYOND23, we had multiple sessions covering this topic. For instance, Dr. Johannes Tröger, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at AMERIA, discussed how gesture control technologies can be applied in digital signage. Attendees in this session had the chance to familiarise themselves with the most recent advancements in gesture control technology and explore its potential in creating engaging digital signage experiences.

This important event reminded us that as technology progresses, we must not neglect our duty to reduce environmental impacts. Attendees were enthusiastic about incorporating eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient screens, and creative approaches to reduce the carbon footprint of digital signage setups. This emphasis on sustainability not only aligns with global environmental goals but also resonates with consumers who increasingly prioritise eco-conscious brands such as Samsung.
