Taking what people love and know about their tablets and mobile phones, then combining that with what most businesses are still in the infancy stage of understanding (digital signage and large video display marketing); all in hopes of unleashing the power of interactivity, engagement, and effectiveness is by no means an easy or out-of-the-box task.
