Light Bright
Getting creative with exhibit lighting used to mean juggling transformers, multiple outlets, and high electricity bills. What's more, products often lacked the flexibility to be used in unusual places. But not with the LED Brite Lite Flex Double D-Lite from Outwater Plastics Industries Inc., a product that makes creative lighting inexpensive to operate and virtually effortless to install.
Using a double row of LED chips that put out 800 Lumens per foot, the product is a flexible, dimmable light ribbon that can extend a continuous 82 feet from one AC outlet. D-Lites can be cut every 19 inches and strung together end to end in the field using optional connectors, and the water-resistant, dust-resistant strips provide roughly 40,000 hours of use.

Mounted Messaging
Incorporating a multimedia display into a pint-sized space just got easier with the Smart Banner with Monitor Mount, a retractable banner stand that has a frame for mounting monitors built right in. Banners are 33 inches wide by 83.5 inches tall and include a standard VESA mount for monitors up to 24 inches and 10 pounds. Screens are hung via a pass-through hole in the banner material and supported by added framework behind, and the entire display sets up in less than 10 minutes. In addition, thanks to replaceable cartridges, graphics can be interchanged in the base for uses that do not require the multimedia component. A wide base ensures monitors are safe from tipping when attached to the stand. The unit packs into two nylon bags for transport and weighs 25 pounds, not including the monitor.

Finding a Pulse
Event organizers wanting feedback from attendees can get right to the heart of the matter instantaneously with Bing Pulse 2.0, a self-service voting platform from Microsoft Corp. that can be scaled for audiences of any size. To use the poll, attendees open a URL from a Web-enabled device and sign in with any information the organizer would like to collect. Via an easy-to-use online dashboard, event managers can customize poll questions and program them to be sent throughout the event,

whether to an audience of 10 people or 10,000. Results are available for real-time viewing and can be shared on monitors and social-media channels or analyzed privately. Voting is anonymous, and attendees can provide their feedback as often as every five seconds on things such as speaker statements or digital presentations. Contact: Microsoft Corp., Redmond, WA, pulse.bing.com
