Capitol Sales Enhances Tour Schedule with HDMI and Digital Signage Sessions

Eagan, MN, — Capitol Sales Company is adding sessions to four of its upcoming Learning Institute Regional Outreach program events. New additions to the program include Jeffrey A. Boccaccio, DPL (Digital Performance Labs) principal and leading expert on HDMI, and Tightrope Media Systems, developer and marketer of the Carousel line of digital signage solutions.

“One of the benefits of this being an ongoing program, as opposed to a single annual event, is that we can add to the course offerings throughout the year,” said Curt Hayes, president and CFO, Capitol Sales Company. “So when we were given the opportunity to include both the industry’s foremost HDMI guru and the designer of the most reliable and intuitive digital signage products on the market, we instinctively jumped at the chance.”

Both Boccaccio and Carousel will join the tour, which debuted in San Francisco on May 3, at its stop in Dallas and all subsequent locations:

  • May 17-19, 2009 — Dallas, Wyndham Dallas Love Field, 3300 W. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75235, 214.357.8500
  • June 7-9, 2009 — Philadelphia, Radisson Hotel Valley Forge, 1160 First Avenue, King of Prussia, PA 19406, 610.354.8206
  • July 12-14, 2009 — Chicago, Eaglewood Resort and Spa, 1401 Nordic Road, Itasca, IL 60143, 630.694.6097
  • November 15-17, 2009 — Tampa, Tampa Airport Marriott Hotel, Tampa International Airport, Tampa, FL 33607, 813-879-5151

On the tour, Boccaccio will be presenting an HDMI session designed for dealers, technicians, and custom installation personnel to understand and work with this highly complex interface, which is at once the most relevant, most talked about and misunderstood technologies to enter the consumer electronics industry.

“The level of complexity makes a typical analog connection look microscopic by comparison,” Boccaccio said.

Carousel digital signage solutions is proving to be one of Capitol Sales Company’s most popular systems to date, thanks to its intuitive user interface that is operable from any web browser. Carousel is a product of Tightrope Media Systems, which boasts an 11-year history in the digital signage industry.

Joining Capitol Sales Company as an exclusive partner is CEDIA On the Road. Courses from CEDIA University On the Road will be held in conjunction with the Capitol Sales Learning Institute-Regional Outreach. All Capitol Sales class attendees will receive CEU credits through CEDIA University.
