In the latest issue of Integrated Solutions For Retailers, Matt Pillar wrote a great article about how a specialty retailer’s video wall and the content it displays drive traffic into the store.

Content assets can aid the customer in context — in the store. Product content (i.e. descriptions, pricing, product images, reviews, and recommendations) and brand content (i.e. videos, advice, how-to’s, marketing images) may be featured simultaneously via kiosks, digital signage, video walls, associate-facing mobile devices, as well as on the consumer’s smartphone.
