Toshiba projects strong annual revenue growth ahead of showcasing new and upcoming solutions at ISE 2018

Neuss, Germany, 23 January 2018 – Toshiba Europe GmbH returns to Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018 in February to showcase its largest ever product portfolio, following a strong 2017. Toshiba has more than doubled its range of active digital signage display and commercial TV models over the past 12 months, from 16 to 36, many of which will be on display at ISE 2018 alongside yet-to-be-announced products.

Toshiba is also announcing ambitious growth targets ahead of the event, as it aims to double year-on-year revenues in FY18. This follows a successful year, in which the company increased its number of active partners across Europe by 75 per cent year-on-year, and expanded into new territories with projects in the Middle East, the Far East and Africa. Continued territory expansion is projected to account for up to 25 per cent of revenues in the coming year.

Embedded signage models, developed in co-operation with partners including M4B, SignStix, Deneva, Red-V and Assinfonet, were responsible for delivering one-fifth of revenues in 2017, and collaboration with system integrators and software houses will remain a priority for the year ahead. This combination of a strong existing customer base and an increased portfolio of SoC-based products is expected to deliver 75 per cent of revenues in 2018.

Such products, including the 24/7 TD-P3 large screen UHD series, 24/7 TD-Q3 high brightness series, and TD-Y3 videowall series, will be on display at ISE, demonstrating the breadth of Toshiba’s embedded signage proposition.

“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.” Beyond delivering innovative hardware and software solutions, Toshiba will continue to focus on ensuring it offers customers fully customisable solutions which are tailored to fit their needs, as well as the consultancy and support needed to integrate these into the business.
