The future of digital sign in the RAI

The European tradeshow Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) occupied 14 of RAI´s halls between 9 and 12 February. The show is the biggest in the world for professionals in integrated audio and video systems, and also the largest for RAI this year. A lot of attention went to Digital Sign. Enormous 4K and 8K screens tickled the senses. The screens were so bright that a pair of sunglasses wouldn´t have been out of place.
