Separate sections will simulate various real life environments to demonstrate working examples of the benefits of solutions such as wireless for internet access, printing and home networking.</p>
<p>“The distinction between traditional audio visual and technology markets is blurring. Customers are demanding products that address the growing requirement for an all in one platform,” said Rob Wilkinson, national retails sales manager, Toshiba ISD. “At the same time, PC users are moving toward notebooks not only for productivity but also as a mobile entertainment platform. The opportunity to further develop our partnership with David Jones to bring this convergence of IT and AV to life has been fantastic.”</p>
<p>“David Jones customers expect us to showcase the latest technology whilst providing good technical and product advice,” said Warwick Kerr, buying manager, David Jones. “The Toshiba Store in Store concept takes this customer expectation to a new level and Toshiba was a clear choice in partnering a mobile computing offer.”</p>
<p>A sophisticated network supports the Store in Store to enable the seamless intergration of IT and audio visual (AV) technologies. With digital quality sound and high definition video increasingly becoming part of the IT experience the retail stand features a full complement of AV/IT technologies including CD, DVD, Bluetooth, WiFi and gaming.</p>
<p>The David Jones Market Street Store in Store is the first of many that are planned. The concept will also be introduced into other prominent DJ’s store locations over the next six months.</p>
