When one hears the term ‘digital signage,’ the first thing that comes to mind is the technology – or, more specifically, the hardware behind such mainstream applications as menu boards and video walls. Technology, however, is just the means to an experience, not an experience. In this seminar, we will discuss how to create out of the box experiences and to look ahead at technology as a way to tell your clients story.

Deciphering NEW ASHRAE 90.1-2016 lighting control requirements and determining how to meet code compliance is challenging. With different states and municipalities adhering to different versions of ASHRAE 90.1-2016, gaining an understanding of what each revision requires and how to adjust plans and energy management systems to address the needs of each unique space can have a huge impact on energy savings.
