The demonstration above is of a very simple
presentation using Repeat Signage
digital signage software. This shows 3 different
presentations playing one after the other in a playlist.
Please note this is a recording of the software and we've not
included sound in this demo.
You may like to consider the following for your digital
Digital signage software - this
can be a PowerPoint presentation, popular with schools, or stand
alone digital signage software for use on your PC to design your
message, or a professional dynamic signage package, depending on
your application. Some signage software licences are
purchased based on the components, for example, the designer (to
design your presentation), the scheduler (to schedule when and where
to play) and the viewer/player (licence to play on 1 or more
screens). Other digital signage software includes all these
elements in one software licence. Most cloud based signage
solutions have annual subscriptions. For a software that allows you
to update presentations via a local network, from a website or over
the Internet from anywhere in the world, for a one-pay licence fee
per PC playing the presentation, then you may find Repeat Signage
Digital signage player - this can
be a dedicated PC to run your signage software, or you can use a
digital signage player. You can buy players which include digital
Display screen(s) - these can be
LCD (or LCD with LED backlight) screens. You can have a video wall
made up of several display screens. High brightness sunshine
readable screens are ideal for windows, such as in an estate agents
window to advertise properties. Alternatively, you can project
your signage through a projector onto window film which let's
passers-by read your message, or you can projector onto a window
film touch screen, which let's passers-by find information or even
request brochures. You can also project your message in-store,
onto a ceiling suspended or point of sale screen.
All-in-one solution - you can
buy a large format LCD monitor with in-built PC and digital
signage software for a simple to use solution. Samsung LCD
with MagicInfo digital signage software uses System On Chip
(SoC) using HTML5 browser. Some screen manufacturers, such
as NEC, iiyama, LG and Philips have slot-in PC modules which
fits into the back or the side of the display screen. You then
download your digital signage software, for example, Repeat
Signage, onto an NEC OPS module PC that slots into an NEC
display screen, using your display as a large computer monitor.
The terms "digital signage", "electronic
signage" or "digital advertising", are normally used to refer to an
advertisement or message which has been created digitally, rather
than a static poster. You can have several elements running at
the same time or different times, all on the same "advert". You
might have scrolling text on the left hand side of a screen, as
shown in the central picture above, a movie clip displaying the
benefits of the store's products or services, information such
as the date and time, and perhaps a movie, Internet website or live
TV to entertain customers. All which can be controlled through
Perhaps, in a DIY store, you have seen a
TV displaying how to use paint stripper. The how-to video is
often played on a DVD player and displayed on the TV.
Although not technically "digital signage", the term seems to be
generically used to mean any form of advertising that "moves", i.e.
not a static poster.
In simplistic terms, digital signage can
be a PowerPoint presentation, or you may wish to use a
professional digital signage software package to create your
content. Your content is then stored on a dedicated PC
or a player which then runs your message either on a plasma screen
or LCD monitor, multiple monitors or a video wall made up of
multiple monitors. Or, depending on the size and scale of your
project, you may wish to use CAT5 broadcasters, etc., to deliver
high definition (HD) video and stereo audio from player to multiple
screens. For those of you who want a simple all-in-one
solution, there are LCD monitors available that have integrated
digital signage player and software.
Alternatively, content can be displayed
through a projector onto the rear of a ceiling mounted projection
screen, onto glass window film or window touchscreen.
You can also have a stand-alone kiosk that has a built-in screen and
PC to run your content. FREE Digital Signage guide 2014
