‘s-Hertogenbosch 24 May 2012, at Screenmedia Expo in London, people
from all over Europe gathered to see the latest and greatest in Digital Signage. The show started on 16
May and ended the 17th. AOpen, being an industry leader in digital signage and known for the AOpen media

Philips, Microsoft Windows Embedded and Net Display Systems we kicked off the Digital Signage Roadshow.

five months. The goal of the roadshow is to show AV integrators, CTO's, CIO's and shop-owners real live

The exhibition suite contains Philips displays: ranging from standard LCD, high brightness,
touch, 3D to video wall displays. All displays are connected to the AOpen Engine Core server rack that
includes the AOpen Digital Engine media players which are based on the Intel platform and Windows Embedded 7
operating system. Net Display Systems digital signage software PADS runs on all the systems using data
integration and intuitive content management to display the content at the right place and time.
This year Screenmedia Expo was a bit smaller compared to last year’s exhibition, main reason
being that partners are collaborating and sharing booth space. Nevertheless the show offered a unique
product selection and it was interesting to see more complete solutions. Just like AOpen, Intel, Microsoft,
Net Display Systems and Philips who joined their forces.
