Digital Signage Expo 2014 to Provide Comprehensive Program for Network Operators on Design, Management & Operations

Las Vegas February 12-13, 2014

Atlanta - Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world's largest International Tradeshow and Educational Conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of-home networks (DOOH), will present an all new Network Design, Management & Operations Seminar Program designed specifically to prepare those who are planning to design, manage and operate or are now managing and operating Place-Based or Out-of-Home networks.

The Network Design, Management & Operations Seminar Program, to be presented in Las Vegas February 12-13, 2014, is part of DSE's seven-track Educational Conference and is designed specifically for network operators of both revenue- and non-revenue generating systems, digital signage (DS) end-users, and systems integrators and installers who participate in or are responsible for design, management and operations. This educational track is intended to provide insights into the planning and initial deployment stages, as well as identify the team skill sets necessary to support a successful installation. Topics to be covered include:

*Influence Instead of Mandate: How to Manage Corporate Digital Signage Through 'Win Win' Goals

*System-Wide Digital Menu Board Deployment - Taking the Leap from a Successful Pilot to Implementation

*Content Distribution Architecture & Infrastructure Management

*How Sam's Club Redesigned its In-Club TV Network to Maximize Shopper Engagement

Richard Lebovitz, Educational Director for Exponation, LLC, which produces DSE, said, "The Network Design, Management & Operations Track presentations will present compelling real-world illustrations of the challenges inherent in designing and executing network installations in a variety of venues and how those challenges were successfully overcome."

DSE also offers The Digital Out-of-Home Network Operators Conference, a full day pre-conference seminar program on Tuesday, February 11 for network operators interested in a more immersive program experience.

Registration for the Network Design, Management & Operations Seminar Program, or any of DSE 2014 educational conference seminars, which are eligible for certification renewal credits, is available online at

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
