What Goes Into a Digital Signage Solution?
A digital sign can be standalone or part of a network of hundreds or thousands of signs. It can be managed one-by-one or centrally managed from a remote location. Whatever the size or scope of a digital signage solution, the basic components include:
- Display: HD flat-panel screens (LCD or plasma), handling a wide range of media inputs, increasingly with touch capabilities and the ability to interact with mobile devices
- Content management: Today’s powerful digital media players capable of managing video graphics, web feeds and other sources of content
- Content: Sources of content include video, graphics, web feeds and more; developed in-house and/or by a media agency; may include third-party advertising
- Network: LAN and/or WAN, wired or wireless
