Accelerating Your Digital Business.

We are live in Munich with top connected car experts to share visions of how the connected car will look toward 2020.  tu

The Telematics Munich Conference & Exhibition is the place where our conversations are taking place today.  Jack Palmer, project director, said, “In-car connectivity continues to simplify, improve and invigorate the driving experience. The industry has reached a milestone. Connectivity is here to stay and it is enabling a paradigm shift within the industry; one that is capable of delivering new services, tech and consumer insights. The growth of the industry can be seen here in the room – it’s full to the brim, we’ve hit record numbers and the atmosphere is electrifying!”

We often read so much about the technology of digital signage that we can forget what this technology is all about — getting communication results that go above and beyond non-digital efforts.  Sure the technology is cool, but most business managers want to add value to their efforts and ultimately to their businesses. That’s why digital signs are important. EXM

Let’s get back to the basics of digital signage — specifically, why should professional communicators and managers turn to digital signage to convey their important messages? Actually, there are several reasons, including:

UIEvolution is proud to congratulate our partner, Princess Cruises, on the celebration of their 50th Anniversary and the christening of the Regal Princess.   IMG_6213

Princess Cruises, the cruise line made famous as the backdrop of the iconic Love Boat television series, christened its new Regal Princess today with a tribute to the show as all six of the original cast members served as the ship’s godparents, and were joined by 25 of the show’s past guest stars. The star-studded Love Boat themed festivities, which also launched the line’s 50th anniversary, celebrated the role the show played in Princess Cruises’ five-decades-long history.

As connected TV gains momentum, marketers must work to keep up with the industry and embrace the medium. As consumers journey further into a screen-neutral lifestyle, with mobile, video, and tablet usage pervading daily life, another platform is quietly emerging – connected TV. This is evidence that we are approaching screen equality more rapidly every year.

We were happy to sit down with Susan Kuchinskas, Telematic Update’s reporter, at the Telematics West Coast USA 2014 Conference on October 30, 2014. Here is her write up from Day One of the  intervikewevent:

Apple and Google vs. OEMs

Should automakers give the people what they want, even if that’s Siri and iPhone apps? Or should they keep trying to wrest some of that consumer love for their own brands? Apple and Google are a fact of life in the CE world, and some automakers are giving them a warmer welcome than others.

Chris Ruff, CEO and president of UIEvolution, was on Radio Active Broadcasting Network today, talking with Hostess Karen Jagoda on multi-screen advertising and on-demand content. While the show typically focuses on discussions around political topics and advertising, Ms. Jagoda enjoys bringing UIEvolution on the show to update listeners on the latest trends regarding multi-screen solutions and advertising, developments in the connected car space and more.

cloudWe really like this article by Alok Misra, posted on January 21, 2014 in Wired.  We like it so much we are posting on our blog!

Cloud computing headlines have been focusing on a handful of the industry’s poster boys, such as, Rackspace and Amazon – in other words, horizontal cloud providers serving all types of businesses. Less visible, have been a larger number of vertical cloud (or SaaS) providers, that have steadily building presence, by offering solutions that serve a market niche or specific industry.

We always enjoy Roger Lanctot, Strategy Analytics’, blogs.  Upon conclusion of our participation last week in Detroit at the DASH Conference, we highlight Roger’s recent article titled: Free Radio at Risk.  micro

Could wireless carriers take over the broadcast of radio content removing this vital source of content and information delivery from the free airways? This concept was implanted into my brain as the result of a presentation given by a Swedish broadcaster who was intending to make the point that no such thing could or would happen.

Creating a great user experience is paramount for the success of automakers as well as content providers. We are live at the DASH Conference 2014 event in Detroit, MI,     Dash 2014 Ruff talking  on a panel titled “It’s All About the Experience”, discussing just this.  Twitter and social media are buzzing with comments on the panel discussion and event.
