Finally, what does Pigou think will be the next step in interactive technology? “There are many directions the technology might go but one of the most important trends overall is towards ever greater context-sensitivity,” he says. “Imagine a screen media system that’s aware of the age and gender of the person it’s interacting with, that’s aware of the weather and the time of day, and how close it is to the weekend and how crowded the location is right now, and how commercial property rents are trending on that street, as an indicator of how well it’s flourishing. You could think of a hundred other examples of information relevant not only to the particular consumer but also to the physical and emotional environment, which will help the system deliver the right kind of message at the right moment. A number of companies are now working on systems that connect a business’s DOOH installations to all kinds of other data that the business holds, for precisely this reason.” This suggests that there’s still plenty of potential for the European DOOH market to continue growing for some time. Whether you’re new to it or just want to keep up to date with the latest developments, Screenmedia expo is well worth a visit. IE
