LONG BEACH, Calif. – Nov. 1, 2018 – Technology continues to change how we view and interact with our world, including how and where we shop. According to a study from ROTH Capital Partners1, 71 percent of millennials say they would visit physical store locations and make purchases more often if a location provided a significantly enhancing retail experience. With countless shopping options available, the product for sale is no longer enough to draw customers into stores – retailers must rethink the way they attract and engage with customers.

As retailers head into the holidays and the busiest buying season of the year, the Epson LightSceneaccent lighting laser projector brings unique digital signage technology into store environments to engage customers and empower a creative shopping experience. Designed to simultaneously illuminate and project dynamic content on virtually any surface or material to engage audiences, LightScene can provide an immersive experience for signage applications in retail this holiday season.

“The most successful businesses are those who understand an emotional connection means lasting customer loyalty,” said Remi Del Mar, senior product manager, Epson America. “We created LightScene to empower retailers to create captivating, immersive environments, reviving the excitement of going out to shop and connecting customers to new products and brands.”
