What is Digital Signage?
Digital signage is remotely controlled distribution and playback of digital content across networks of displays. It is used for delivering visual messages at point-of-purchase, or at any other public venue.The content displayed on digital signage screens varies from simple text and still images to full-motion video, with or without audio.
Digital Signage usage
Digital signage is used for many different purposes:
- Information - examples include flight information in airports and wait-times for the next train.
- Advertising related to the location to uplift sales - for example in-store promotions.
- Advertising by third parties - digital media agencies that sell advertising space to local merchants/service providers, media resellers and national advertisers.
- Enhanced customer experience - examples include digital signage in restaurant waiting areas to reduce perceived wait-time and recipe demonstrations in food stores.
- Influencing customer behavior - for example post office signage that directs customers waiting in line to automated stamp machines or to direct customers to different areas, increasing the in-store spent time.
- Brand building where digital signage in video form is used as part of the store dÃ©cor in order to compliment the brand.
- Environment enhancing to increase the customerâs experience with the building itself - for example digital signage panels that interact with individual moves.
Digital signage can also be used in a corporate environment, disseminating company related information in reception areas and canteens.
