Q&A with Kim Brown, Senior Director of Marketing, Planar.
RESI: Why should attendees connect with you virtually at CEDIA Expo?
KIM BROWN: We’re used to attending dozens of industry events each year, and while we’re missing the in-person connection, we’ve remained focused on finding ways to stay engaged with our customers and partners as much as possible. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we hear what our industry members are going through or looking to achieve. Similarly, it’s important for them to know that Planar is here and ready to help make their visions a reality.
With this year’s virtual CEDIA Expo, we want our customers and partners to have the same experience they would have had by visiting our booth in person at the show. This means that they’ll not only learn about the latest industry trends and Planar innovations for home use, but also discover how our portfolio of display solutions can help address their needs of today and tomorrow. We may not be able to walk the show floor with them to demonstrate an interactive display solution being exhibited for a home office, but better yet, we can virtually direct them to an entire portfolio of products and information to help them find the solution that fits their needs exactly. Today, we’re embracing the opportunity to connect with the industry in unique ways, and collaborate and innovate like never before to help ensure we all make it through to the other side.
RESI: What’s the one product you’re introducing that attendees should see and why?
KB: Our new Planar HB Series Huddle Board offers customers a new touch solution for next-level collaboration. As a line of LCD displays optimized for quick and efficient collaboration, Planar HB Series is the perfect solution for executive home offices. Users can connect from anywhere and add a webcam, audio system, or microphone of their choosing to sync with colleagues, customers, or shareholders across the globe as if they are meeting in the very same room.
The series features a highly responsive touch performance and stylus that accurately captures even the smallest of characters. Plus, Planar HB Series’ digital whiteboard enables image import for easy annotation over maps, web page screen shots, reports, and more to help professionals get the most out of each application’s individual features with the simple touch of the screen. During these particularly trying times, we understand people are stressed and feeling isolated, but also need a way to check in with their employees and customers to maintain business as usual. We’re extremely proud to offer our industry members a one-stop solution that can take collaboration to the next level from the comfort of their homes.
