Pandemic and New Normal
“Relaxed control measures, declining risk perception and the understandable desire to return to normalcy have led to reduced protective behaviors and more social and workplace interactions, often in confined, close-contact and crowded settings, where the virus spreads efficiently… In the short-term, governments should continue strengthening public health and health system capacity, especially the early detection of and targeted response to asymptomatic transmission among younger populations.”
In line with the WHO’s statement, it must be noted that the new normal has come to be due to the new strict rules of how business operations should be and how people should interact to prevent the spread of the virus. Although the virus has been dominating almost the whole year of 2020, a bright light seems to shine for the hope of a vaccine.
There are currently 4 vaccines with almost complete stages of testing and will be allowed to be distributed (Gallagher, 2020). To emphasize, the vaccines are just almost complete. The people are still expected to follow strict regulations provided by the government to prevent the spread of the virus until the vaccines are complete.
Uses of LED in the Pandemic and New Normal
In the research article “Benefits of Using Digital Signages Today”, the researcher has already mentioned that the Digital Signage market is not really negatively affected by the pandemic. In fact, there is a forecast growth of its market. In line with this, the conventional uses of LED digital signages are still applicable to be able to maximize its uses in the new normal. As cited in the previous section of this article, this tech could be used across industries for private and public use. The technology is already in demand and the foreseen threat is online advertising.
Although the market forecast showed great results for the Digital Signage market, the company could still resort to non-conventional action to expand its market targets. For example, a company may opt to attract more customers or market to potential partners how good their LED display is through a collaborative project with a company or through their own efforts.
The goal of LED display is to get the attention of customers to provide the transfer of information efficiently. With this said, this kind of publicity activity or partnership could expand its markets due to the mesmerizing effect of the displays.
Another example is to adjust to the new normal. Given that there are still T.V. programs in operation and audience impact is still a great driving force to raise the ratings, an LED audience could be provided through the LED display. The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has relied heavily on its audience reactions to gain high ratings from the people watching their T.V.s at home or in any streaming channel. The application of WWE could be also applied in numerous game shows that are still live during this pandemic. The LED displays in game shows could be fully utilized as an audience attraction or a display attraction.
