What is Digital Signage?

There is no easy way to define Digital Signage. In fact, it is a way to communicate information outwards. Whether it concerns promotions, internal communication, or other information. The term Digital Signage can mean many things for different people.

Some see it as a sort of screen, some will say that it is a kind of software or media player, others will say that they are all three. A good example of this is our all-in-one Android displays, which contain all three elements in one. From big to small, touch or no touch, or from static to interactive; the reach of Digital Signage solutions is enormous.

How do I use Digital Signage?

There are two different ways to use and manage your Digital Signage screens. The first is via plug & play and the second way via a CMS (Content Management System). Plug & Play is the stand-alone solution. Copy images and videos to a USB stick and place them in the display, the content is copied and once the USB is removed, the content is played in a loop. Via the CMS, users can log in and upload the content directly to their screens via our online CMS portal. This way you can directly and remotely update multiple screens that are located anywhere in the world.

What are the advantages of Digital Signage?

The use of Digital Signage offers many advantages; whether you replace traditional signage or introduce Digital Signage in an area where there was no signage before. Some of these benefits include;

  • Display a variety of images and videos to deliver your message.

  • Unlimited updates and the elimination of costly printing costs.
  • Increase profits through targeted advertising for certain products / services / promotions.
  • Meet customers’ expectations with modern Digital Signage screens.

Digital Signage is mainly in public space, especially because it works best when it is aimed at its target group. A whole range of different solutions are available, depending on the location of your signage. For example, if you wanted Digital Signage in your shop window to attract passing trade, then an Ultra High Brightness Monitor would work best to counteract the natural sunlight and the heat that this entails. Digital Media Display can advise you to place the right screen in the right place.
