Owing to its multiple uses, digital signage has successfully trumped the paper signs or non-dynamic signboards. Digital signage can be updated with the help of remote control, while the paper signs require individual replacement and a lot of manpower to do the same. Personnel also has to travel to the site to change the advertisement or information in case of paper signs, however, such is not the case with digital signage.
In short, digital signage is more eco-friendly, interactive, visually appealing and low-maintenance than the paper signboards. With the help of animation or multimedia content, digital signage draws more audience than a traditional signboard ever could. The digital content can also incorporate sound to deliver information that stays for long.
In this blog, we will discuss in detail about everything you need to know about digital signage, ranging from application areas to technology.
What is Digital Signage?
Technically, digital signage is an array of connected digital screens that can display content and information in any space. Usually, the solution is scalable which means that the size of the digital display can be adjusted as per requirement. Owing to its high brightness display and high resolution, digital signage is used to convey information, display menu, advertisement and much more.
Digital signage is a centrally-controlled content distribution platform that can be used to broadcast information. In retail stores, they are used to display visually-appealing content to a specific audience to increase footfall and sales for a particular brand.
Digital Signage is Low-Maintenance and Eco-Friendly
Digital signage setup might look exuberant and luxurious upon installation, but the overall cost of operation and maintenance is low as compared to the analog signage. Some digital signage also allows touch input which enables the handler to let the users interact in real-time with the content. For example, at the online ticketing platform on railway stations and airports, the users can check the real-time status and availability of trains and flights and also book the tickets for themselves.
This is another big benefit of having a digital display for information communication. It not provides information but can also be interactive at the same time. For any update in the content of the digital signage, the owner can change it remotely using the dedicated content management software. Whereas in the case of analog the entire paper signboard has to be changed. This results in a lot of wastage and manual work. An entire team has to be deployed at the billboard site to change the content of the board.
