Samsung launches a range of new cutting edge retail technologies at NRF
Samsung has unveiled a range of cutting edge new retail technology solutions “to help brick-and-mortar retailers reinvent the in-store experience”.
At this year’s National Retail Federation (NRF) show, the Korean electronics giant unveiled a “broad range of commercial display technologies that can be completely customizable to fit a myriad of business needs”.
Samsung’s first and largest new product is ‘The Wall’, a giant modular outdoor and semi-indoor dual sided screen that can extend hundreds of inches without compromising on clarity or brightness.
Its modular design means individual screens will fit together cohesively in any shape or design, allowing retailers “add or remove unlimited LED screens”.
Next from Samsung is the AI-powered MagicInfo Analytics, essentially a management platform for a retailers’ displays which also provides “meaningful performance reports” to understand the results of specific promotions.
An interactive display board “tailored to meet display demands in retail, corporate, education, sports and hospitality” called the Flip 2 was also part of Samsung’s collection, alongside the Galaxy XCover Pro.
The XCover Pro is a mobile device designed to “assist retailers with customer service and retail management” by scanning next-gen barcodes and RFID tags with one touch.
It can also view augmented reality overlays to check stock levels, verify price labels or do super-fast order picking.
