Advantech to Showcase New Partnerships, Products at 2019 Digital Signage Expo


IRVINE, Calif.Advantech — a leading global innovator of robust, comprehensive computing products, services and solutions for automation and IoT — is pleased to exhibit a range of new industrial display, digital signage and media-player products at the Digital Signage Expo 2019 (DSE), taking place March 26-29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada.

With an emphasis on creating transformative, one-stop-shop solutions for digital signage across industries, Advantech will demonstrate how its edge to cloud solutions can be managed from the cloud in addition to providing rugged, customizable and configurable dynamic signage, self-service kiosks, players and consoles — which save time both for their partners and for consumers. Advantech’s digital signage can be crafted to fit a fresh space or easily integrated wherever traditional signage exists, across a broad range of industries like retail, healthcare, higher education, hospitality, transportation and more.

“Advantech is pleased to be showcasing its innovative products at this year’s Digital Signage Expo,” said Advantech’s manager of product management, Jasper Hsu. “As digital signage and responsive technology networks continue to evolve, it’s important that we continue to interact and engage with key players and customers in the industry.”

Alongside partners Intel and Microsoft, Advantech will feature products from two new partners: FaceCake, creator of Swivel® Smart Digital Signage which enables brands to connect with and engage consumers through its immersive Augmented Reality ad platform, and TouchSource, a leader in smart display technology. TouchSource recently integrated two-way emergency video communication into its engaging elevator solution content, a digital feature soon to be mandatory in all elevators. Both of these partnership applications will be on display in Advantech’s booth #2031.

“It is extremely rare for a building owner or property manager to be able to make a single investment that will increase compliance, boost safety and upgrade the overall tenant experience,” said TouchSource CEO Ajay Kapoor. “By bringing the engaging content from TouchSource to the elevator space and coupling it with two-way emergency communication, building owners and property managers can accomplish all three of those goals very simply.”

FaceCake will showcase Swivel® – its virtual dressing room application which utilizes the Advantech UTC-542 monitor.

“Our Augmented Reality shopping and ad platform extends the traditional dressing room in ways that could previously only be imagined,” said FaceCake Founder and CEO Linda Smith. “Swivel instantly engages shoppers, allowing them to virtually Try-On and interact with products and brands in a unique and highly personalized way.”
