Digital signage system,also termed as dynamic signage system,is used for transmitting and displayingdigital contents, such as animations, audio-visual, text and images.The system composites a playback device, a network and server, software and display device.The player or playback device is responsible for repetition of content onto the screen. The system’s capabilities are enhanced viaa wired or wireless network connectivity platform, whichenables the system to communicate with other connected devices.In addition, wireless network connectivity allows the user to access the digital signage system from anywhere, enhancingcontroland monitoringexperience of the system and its content.
The digital signage system eliminates the use of materials like paper and paint required for traditional signage systems, making it more eco-friendly. It can be used for high target advertisement. Furthercapabilities like extending its display size by connecting with other multiple screens, real-time content update, remote access, monitoring and controlling, data transmission via compressed files, fan-less design for preventing malfunctioning, energy-saving, tamper-resistant, cost-effectiveness, dynamic and interactivityare some of the key factors that are increasing the usage of digital signage systems. Moreover, decline in price of display devices, rising scope of GPS market, increasing demand for digital out-of-home (DOOH) applications and a growing demand for additional integrated features in digital signage systems are expected to increase the scope of digital signage software market as well. However, the digital signage market is facing a few challenges, such as high initial cost associated with its installation, huge investment in its maintenance, content creation, support and hardware & software.
