Who needs digital signage?

You, that’s who.

What would you do with a sign that really got noticed? What would you do if you could insert your own commercials into live TV? Digital signage has gone from ultra-expensive to very reasonable in just about a year, so no matter what you want, it can be done with digital signage. Just take almost any off-the-shelf TV and a very inexpensive player (some are under $150) and you’re off and running! Imagine what you could do if you could…

Design your signs in PowerPoint and use them “as is.”
Digital signage players can play JPEG, PNG, and MP4 files exactly as you create them, so you have a lot of flexibility with your designs. Add a logo, custom fonts, anything!

Add custom advertising on the side, bottom, or full-screen
Many digital signage players let you play live TV in one corner while showing your custom ad content on the other three corners. It’s easy and flexible and it’s a great way to promote specials on new products.

Live TV and your live ads
Produce commercials with most free programs like iMovie and you can upload them and show them in full HD. You can even automatically switch between watching live TV and your videos, all day long!

Menus and price boards that always look awesome.
If your menu board looks like it came from a 1950s drive-in restaurant, maybe it’s time to get with the 21st century. Create super-fancy menu boards with the help of PowerPoint or any professional design program and then change them as often as you like.

Emergency info, or even just the stuff you need to know…
How about telling people the meeting’s been moved before they get on the elevator? Some of our digital signage players can even be updated from the web, anywhere, so you can upload new content or change information “on the go.” It’s super easy!

The more you think about digital signage, the more fabulous uses you’ll have for it. It’s a super new tool and you can learn more… just call us at 866.726.4182 today!
