With the catalogue of problems that hit Toshiba in 2017 finally put to bed, the firm’s Business Display Solutions arm is predicting a strong 2018. In fact, Toshiba has announced ambitious revenue growth predictions for the coming 12 months, as it aims to double year-on-year revenue.
Despite the problems behind the scenes last year, Toshiba’s Business Display Solutions unit actively increased its number of European partners by 75 per cent (year-on-year) in 2017. The company also expanded into new regions with projects in the Middle East, Far East and Africa expected to account for as much as 25 per cent of revenue growth in 2018.
The news comes ahead of ISE where Toshiba is to display its range of active digital signage display and commercial TV models that has grown from 16 devices to 36 over the past 12 months.
“ISE 2018 marks an exciting time for us as we celebrate our fifth year in the European business display market. I’m proud to have met the ambitious goals we set ourselves to drive growth in 2017 – including delivering a comprehensive range of solutions, securing new embedded signage and software partnerships, and further developing our strategic partner relationships across Europe and beyond,” said Go Inoue, Vice President of Visual Solutions Business, Toshiba Europe GmbH. “We now have a strong platform firmly in place as we aim to continue on this impressive growth trajectory in 2018, and we’re delighted to begin doing so by exhibiting a compelling line-up of display solutions at ISE.”
Products on display will include the brand-new TD-P3 large screen UHD models ranging from 75-inch to 98-inch, as well as the recently launched TD-Y3 videowall series with 3.5mm narrow bezels. Toshiba’s exhibit will also encompass innovative new touch, stretched and automated voice assistant displays, as well as two kiosk solutions including a QSR ordering solution in partnership with M4B, and a Virtual Porter from m.i.b. Embedded signage partners Deneva, M4B, Red-V and SignStix will join Toshiba on stand, as will Assinfonet which will be showcasing the latest in education display solutions.
