megapixels are boring. let’s talk gigapixels.

TLS Rushby1I’ve written several times before how our industry  –and society at large, for that matter — needs to start planning for when gigapixel displays become commonplace. I’m convinced that’s going to happen much sooner than most people think.

So I was very enthusiastic when Adrian Cotterill, editor-in-chief of the DailyDOOH, asked me if I’d speak about gigapixels at the Thought Leadership Summit: Videowalls Unplugged conference.  The DailyDOOH organized that event last week at the #NECshowcase in London.

The problem was that I was in Canada and the event was in England. “That’s not a problem“, said Adrian. “Make a video and we’ll present that,  instead!”  So, with the help of Arc-Media, a talented local production firm, we did just that.

Here’s what I had to say. Many thanks to The Daily DOOH for letting me use it here. All the opinions in it are mine alone. Comments and suggestions are most welcome.
