PSAV Maximizes Audience Engagement with the Debut of Its Interactive Video Wall

Harnessing advanced touch-presentation capabilities, PSAV® Presentation Services is
unveiling an innovative audiovisual technology that enables meeting goers to
simultaneously interact with a variety of services, from viewing maps and
wayfinding to accessing presentations, playing games and more



LONG BEACH, Calif. — March 12, 2013 — PSAV® Presentation Services is now offering a new communication platform for meeting professionals that uses next-generation interactive digital signage to deliver information and entertainment to event attendees. The PSAV Interactive Video Wall enables planners to present their message in a digital format that is branded to their unique themes and provides sponsorship and advertising opportunities. 
 
The PSAV Interactive Video Wall made its debut in January at the Professional Convention Management Association's Convening Leaders 2013 annual conference and will soon be on display at Exhibitor 2013, the world conference and exhibition for tradeshow and corporate event marketers, held March 17 to 21 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
 
"PSAV is thrilled to be the exclusive provider of this in-demand, seamless, glass-touch technology to the U.S. hospitality industry," said Anne Bailey, PSAV manager of account development. "When we debuted the Interactive Video Wall at PCMA, it was met with rave reviews. More than a dozen association managers said it is a 'must-have' for their events later this year. Not only does the high-definition display grab attention, but it compels people to get up-close and personal with show messaging. It's a dynamic presentation tool that also provides a heightened level of entertainment and gives multiple users simultaneous access to the information that is relevant, thus making the meeting even more engaging and memorable. It's iPad-style familiarity but in a much larger format.
 
"We anticipate even more excitement and interest in the Interactive Video Wall when we participate in Exhibitor 2013 next week in Las Vegas," she said. "It's a cool tool guaranteed to be in demand for a long time."
 
The PSAV Interactive Video Wall is available in two standard sizes, each using 46-inch square screens configured in either a two-by-two or three-by-three display. With 32 touch points on the entire surface, meeting goers can view maps, presentations, games and more.
 
Each of the 46-inch TouchLED panels feature backlighting to provide outstanding energy efficiency. On average, this display technology uses 30 percent less energy when compared with LCD or plasma technology. The state-of-the-art look and feel enhances visual impact, and the thin glass bezel front makes for a seamless wall appearance.
 
A recent White Paper developed by PSAV and BrainStrength Systems™ and titled Audiovisual Technologies and Adult Learning in Meetings, details how a sensory-rich environment engages the brain, facilitates learning, enlivens the senses, and contributes greatly to an enhanced meeting experience.
 
"This Interactive Video Wall is yet another tool in the PSAV arsenal that enhances learning and improves the entire meeting experience," Bailey said. "Planners who are looking to maximize learning and convey their messaging in a memorable way should consider featuring this interactive technology at their next event. As the newest audiovisual offering in the PSAV portfolio, the Interactive Video Wall is a great way to establish differentiation for your event and keep your audience engaged."
