Thousands of SCDigest subscribers have viewed our full video reviews of NRF 2015 Day 1 and Day 2, which featured a number of cool and interesting new solutions. SCDigest editor Dan Gilmore also wrote a Trip Report of the NRF show, largely focusing on the big picture of jey trends and themes.

As we have done the last couple of years, this year we once again break out the cool new solutions we found and covered into individual videos, so readers can select to view just the brief solution summaries (generally 2-3 minutes) that are of interest to them. Here we present just those solutions covered from Day 1. Next week, we will have the solutions we found on Day 2.

SCDigest Says:

Perhaps no vendor has transformed more in the past year than Zebra Technologies, as the printer and label company acquired the wireless system and scanning business from Motorola.
