InfoComm16, Las Vegas, June 10, 2016 – HB Communications, Inc. has been honored with a Samsung Smart Signage Award for Emerging Technology – Broad-Line Installation of the Year at InfoComm16 in Las Vegas, an annual event for the professional audiovisual and information communication industries.

Emerging Technology – Broad-Line Installation of the Year recognizes a partner that used multiple products from the Samsung smart signage portfolio to bring to life a creative installation that emphasizes effective design and artistic appeal. In late 2015, HB Communications completely overhauled a State government agency’s Emergency Operations Center EOC, the Governor’s Conference Room, Press Room, and ancillary work spaces with all-digital audio/video and control infrastructure.

The centerpiece of the EOC is a pair of 2-high x 3-wide Samsung 55” UD-series-based video walls.  In the Governor’s Conference Room, the table is flanked by a pair of 2-high x 2-wide Samsung 46” UD-series-based video walls.  A variety of content, such as television, traffic and security camera feeds, weather data, websites, and PC-driven dashboards may be discretely positioned on any monitor, or span a larger block of monitors, targeting any of the video walls.

“The annual Samsung Smart Signage Award celebration gives us an opportunity to recognize the outstanding achievements of our ProAV Dealers and their contributions to the signage industry,” said Ed Abrams, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “We take great pride in recognizing the partners and projects that represent the driving force of innovation in the ProAV industry, and congratulate the well-deserved winners.”

“Samsung is synonymous with innovation and HB's mission to design world class collaboration environments makes our partnership ideal. HB is proud to be part of the Samsung vision,” said Dana Barron, CEO, HB Communications.

Samsung offers a diverse range of smart signage solutions, from seamless video walls and fine pixel-pitch LED to outdoor displays and collaborative e-boards, designed for retail, corporate, QSR, education and other business environments.
