What is Digital Signage?
Also known as commercial displays, digital signage is similar to your typical TV or large desktop monitor. Digital signs are large, flat panel LCD displays capable of showing just about any digital content. There are important differences however. Commercial displays come with additional features that make them uniquely suited for a digital signage application.
How Are Digital Signs Different From TVs?
Digital signage displays can include several additional features not typically found on TV’s or desktop monitors. To start with, there is onboard software that comes equipped to run signage out of the box, even without connecting to a PC. Learn more about the differences between desktop monitors and digital signage.
Digital signs may also have a daisy-chain displayport configuration, which allows the connection of multiple displays without any additional hardware or adapters.
