Trend Towards Digital Signage Sees Large Screen Sales Soar
Vendor unit shipments of large-format displays (LFDs) across EMEA were up by over 15% in Q3 2015 compared to the same period last year, according to data published by Context. Unit sales of screens of 65-inches and above grew significantly, increasing by more than 107% in year-on-year. The firm said that there has been a big shift towards interactive products for meeting rooms in the corporate market. The other fast-growing segment has been 34-inch and below, which saw sales increase over 26% year-on-year, driven by low-cost digital signage solutions, which are becoming increasingly popular in retail outlets and restaurants.
