D&H Launches Pro AV/Digital Signage Initiative
D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announces it has created a new initiative focusing on the Pro AV/digital signage space, incorporating solutions such as large format digital signage, collaboration and videoconferencing solutions, projectors, video walls, screens, audio solutions, media players, mounts, and accessories
Digital signage, pro AV, and collaboration tools have taken on new significance as companies become more distributed, with robust WiFi connecting far-flung branch offices, and mobile employees frequently accessing the network from off-site locales or remote home offices. Not only is the concept of video conferencing and collaboration growing as an internal trend in office facilities; digital signage is gaining momentum as a means for businesses to engage their customer bases, demanding the attention of consumers and clientele with vibrant, large footprint screens and variable, rotating electronic content.
Such technologies are finding a place in vertical markets including hospitality, retail, healthcare, services, education, enterprise, and more. They’re found in facilities ranging from airports and waiting rooms to boardrooms, lobbies, and houses of worship.
“Digital signage and collaboration solutions are exploding in scope. They create substantial impact when applied in business environments,” began Peter DiMarco, vice president of VAR sales at D&H Distributing. “Hospital facilities are using signage and display systems to update families waiting for patients in surgery. Sales teams use them to post performance metrics. Executives use them to collaborate with remote colleagues. As this medium becomes more ubiquitous, the opportunity for integrators, installers, and resellers with expertise in these systems will generate notable profitability. D&H can deliver that expertise, working with customers to configure end-to-end signage, collaboration, or videoconferencing systems and helping them to manage content for these deployments long-term.”
D&H has invested in a team of Digital Signage and Collaboration Specialists who can offer support in the complex task of managing ongoing content, creating opportunities for managed services revenues. These experts, who hold certifications including CTS (Certified Technology Specialists) and DSCE (Dell Certified Systems Expert), respectively, can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Manufacturers offering solutions under this umbrella include Acer, ASUS, Barco, Casio, Chief, Dell, Epson, Gefen, Intel, Lenovo, LG, Logitech, NEC, Planar, Ricoh, Russound, Samsung, Sennheiser, Tripp Lite, and ViewSonic, to name a few. In addition, D&H is a member of AVIXA (The Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association), the leading association for professionals in the AV industry and the organization that administers CTS certifications.
In addition to its Solutions Specialists team, D&H offers training on the digital signage and collaboration opportunity via its Solutions Lab streaming media session, “The Big Picture: Your Guide to Signage & Display Solutions,” which customers can view on-demand at dandh.com.
