Digital Signage is a simple 4 step process; involves a large flat panel display screen, a signage player, and cloud-based, remote management software.
Display screens located in different locations (floors, buildings, campuses, towns, or even countries) can be managed and monitored remotely from a centralized location.
The signage player is connected to the internet wirelessly or via an ethernet cable, and to the display screen using the HDMI (or DVI) cable. Each display screen requires its own digital signage player / device.
The web-based CMS, which can be accessed from anywhere using a web browser, allows users to upload and/or create content, playlists and templates. The content can be organized for playback as per a schedule.
Once configured via the CMS, the player downloads and displays media files on the screen. The screen can be split into multiple regions (or zones) with different content, with widgets like weather, text ticker, live traffic, etc.
The CMS affords remote access to schedules, content or playlists. To update or to create a new playback schedule, simply log in to the software (from any location) and create/update/edit the content as needed.
