Digital Signage Software Survey 2017
A digital signage solution consists of the components Hardware, Software and Content:
- The hardware is now largely standardized and therefore relatively inexpensive. What is needed for a professional solution are screens, a media to play the content (usually this is a Windows PCs, a so-called. Player), a server for retaining all relevant system information and their management and the communications technology between the central server and the players.
- The contents are determined by the objective, which is associated with the use (and thus always project and customer specific).
- The software defines the performance of the solution and is dependent on the demand and requests of the solution. The right choice is crucial.
Investigation of market-relevant software offerings:
In Central Europe we have more than 180 vendors registered and on our watch list. Worldwide, there are likely to be at least twice as many. Of these, only a few have a relevant market position. A wise choice is necessary.
On Survey a total of approx. 20 companies took part, including all leading software companies from Europe and USA, as well as selected hardware manufacturers.
