There are varying types of digital signage these days, ranging from simple indoor LCDs to 3D, multi-screen installations like the amazing Coca-Cola sign in New York’s Times Square. Just how well do you know digital signage? Check our list below and see how many you recognise.
Indoor digital display signage
An easy one to start with. This is your basic signage option — a non-interactive display like the 43-inch ASUS SD433, which incorporates a built-in media player that supports a variety of commonly-used media formats (e.g. AVI, MP4, MKV, MPEG, VOB, JPEG, BMP and PNG). Ideal for indoor wall-mounted, shelved, or end-cap installations.
A freestanding display with a built in digital media player is the ideal solution for shops and businesses who don’t want a screen in a fixed location. It allows businesses to be flexible and to switch a sign between a point of transit, a point of sale and a point of wait (such as a queue) for maximum effect.
Digital menu boards
With digital signage, menu choices can be quickly updated, and additional information such as seating plans and serving times can also be included. Digital menu boards don’t only come hung on the walls, however – they can be used as tables themselves. Pizza Hut has experimented with an interactive table that enables its customers to build their own pizza.
Multi-panel digital signage
Think video walls. ASUS ST558 ultra-narrow bezel displays, for example, are specifically designed for video wall use, enabling vivid high-quality digital content to be displayed at up to 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution.
Outdoor digital signage
With a range of weather-proofing solutions available for large format digital displays, outdoor digital signage solutions can range from small LCD posters to huge digital billboards.
