How can a company increase customers' awareness of advertising? This digital signage is used by banks, restaurants, retail stores and hotels for promoting on electronic signs that will make visitors' experiences more pleasurable. These dynamic displays with media players capture the attention of a target audience. These all-in-one digital signage solutions come in several different packages and options. The simple, plug-n-play media player, for example, presents images and videos in a slideshow-like manner. These devices pull media files from a USB flash drive and do not require the Internet for use. Many of the plug-n-play digital signage players also include software to create custom templates. This is an alternative to splitting a monitor screen into separate sections using a template designer of a more advanced software option. Such web-based digital signage generally has a central content management interface that requires an Internet connection. While it's necessary to be online to make changes to a presentation, the networked solutions can be updated remotely from any location. This type of signage player schedules and playlists based on the time of day or week, showcasing videos and slideshows together on one screen. Advanced digital signage software is often also capable of connecting to other monitors.
Plug & Play is the most basic and easiest to use solution for dynamic advertising presentations. The plug-n-play digital signage presents files as a full-screen slideshow, pulling the information from a USB flash drive or external hard drive. The digital signage device is incredibly easy to set up and utilize daily; however it is necessary to be on location to make changes and updates. Some media players also only play full-screen presentations of a video or of a slideshow of images, and others include software to create "framed content". While users can adjust the interval time in-between images, the functionality of the device is limited to static images (no layers or moving parts) or video (not available on all models). There are different styles of these plug & play digital signage players. Some are stand-alone units (that must be hooked up to a television) and others are built right into the television, so you can purchase all hardware components in a single transaction.
Are these digital signage products easy-to-use?
What are the best features of the plug-n-play digital signage player?
TVs with built-in ad players use a USB thumb drive to display content. All of these digital signage options will play full screen static images or image slideshows. Most of the options will also play video. Select televisions, the LG® EzSign TVs, include additional software to create "framed" content. Download the EzSign software onto a computer and use the simple program to create eye-catching digital signage advertisements. There are over 50 unique, pre-built templates available. Most of these have a portion of the screen filled with a live TV feed (tuner built into television), and varying zones where users can add their own images, with up to two images per zone (these will rotate automatically once on screen). The built-in text editor allows users to display their own messages, adjusting the font, size, color, and other characteristics. This software is ideal for a wide variety of industries. As many of the templates have a live TV window built right in, this is great for sports bars, looking to advertise appetizer or drink specials on the same screen that patrons are already viewing. Transportation hubs, such as airports, bus or train stations are also great places to implement this type of entertainment/advertising signage. There are also templates offered without live TV built-in, suitable for retail stores and other locations.
All Digital Signage Purchases Now Include Access To Templates2Go
Free access to Displays2Go's simple template editor has presently been added to any signage digital purchase. This template editing program is web-based (no need to download or install any programs). It is very simple and intuitive, allowing even the least artistically-inclined persons to create beautiful, functional and (most importantly) effective electronic signs. This editor was created by our own technology department after our consumer service specialists communicated the frustrations of customers that want to delve into the realm of digitized advertisements but do not have the know-how themselves, nor the funds to hire to a designer. Average customers like the owners of local eateries, or a neighborhood pharmacy do not want to get left behind in the digital age. However, they often have a hard enough time juggling the many other aspects of owning a business, to invest more time and resources into learning intricate photo-editing programs. Before this revolutionary program was made available, most customers fell into one of two categories: graphically inclined, with the ability to create stunning visual presentations using expensive software, or the not-so-graphically inclined, leaving them to show a simple, boring full screen advertisement that produced little more interest than traditional static posters, begging the question why even invest in this new technology?

In addition to these software solutions, commercial monitors are used for a variety of other uses. These LCD monitors are made of more sturdy materials than standard residential models. They also feature a 2-year manufacturer's warranty, while the average residential monitors only offer a 1 year warranty. These LCD monitors are available in various sizes including: 22", 32", 42" and 55". The high-definition screens are ideal for use with advertising presentations. Pair any of these media players with one of these LCD monitors to create a stunning presentation!
