These webinars reflect how the goal of applying digital experience to make memorable moments is achieved.

Digital experience is fulfilled by a wide range of digital media including digital signage, architectural media, video walls, mobile, tablet, augmented and virtual reality, technology interface (voice, gesture, etc.), analytics and the tools for managing messaging and interaction with these devices. Digital experience applies to business to business (B2B), business to business to consumer (B2B2C) and business to consumer (B2C) commerce.

Key Elements of Content Management Software (CMS) Selection


The Content Management Software (CMS) is central to dynamic signage network success, and this applies to corporate, ad-based network and an increasing number of business-to-consumer dynamic media installations. Many initial deployments of digital signage have proven the value of the medium and can benefit from the operational economies and enabling performance characteristics of a CMS that better serves the needs of the enterprise. The selection factors are critical to signage network success and these factors are addressed by guest presenter Bart Massey, CTO of Reflect Systems, who joined Reflect in 2013 and is responsible for leading product design and development, and for providing technical leadership for internal and partner programs. His background in engineering management and operations allows him to bring almost 20 years of experience to Reflect’s leadership team.

Automagical Experiences


Choosing the Right In-Store Technology While Not Sacrificing the Human Experience making digital experiences "automagical" - engaging, profound, memorable and technologically seamless to the shopper. This recorded webinar is moderated by Lye Bunn, Chair of the Centre for Digital Experience with special guests Ed King and Laura Davis-Taylor.

The industry is now littered with labs, cool whiz bang case studies and brands and retailers elbowing each other publicly to prove that they are the most innovative and category leading. Too often we judge these innovations based on how slick and savvy they appear, or by how we influence what shoppers actually feel inside the store? By first understanding that technology is supposed to make things more human, not less, we are able to have a clear look at the shopper landscape, and start to look toward technology as part of an in-store innovation solution. In this webinar, viewers will learn how to focus on what technology solutions you should do, not what you could do.



Retail Media - Leveraging In-Store Moments

Brands and retailers can bring together advertising and merchandising for mutual benefits. Brands have a long history of a traditional media buying approach across advertising channels like TV, radio, Out-of-Home, and online. The in-store medium has always been a different animal, with brands often struggling to leverage the valuable "moment of truth" in the store. Matt Schmitt, Co-founder of Reflect and Rob Winston, Winston Research Group discuss ways in which retail should (and shouldn't) be treated as a media channel, how to put a value on the medium, and ways to reduce friction and make media buying more seamless. Advertising and the brands' efforts to get closer to the consumer where they are. Topics include: Out-of-Home and Place-Based media, the differences between OOH and Place-Based, traditional Brand Promotion at Retail, Retail as Media.  See the recorded webinar here.
