Static display boards were functional but needed regular manual assistance. Contents were also one-dimensional. Due to static nature, information lack and miscommunication were more common. Digital signage is a relief in that sense. Digital or electronic displays save time, need least manual interaction, convey varieties of information through single unit and cut costs.

Digital Signage are everywhere today. They display information, adverts, entertaining programs, menus and other massages. There are interactive versions too with touch screen display units. A typical digital signage system sports electronic display, media player and central content management (CMS) system. Digital signage could be in stand alone form; or as an array of signages with a single CMS. Manual participation is lot less.

There is hardly any sector which can not and does not use digital displays.

Aviation

Earlier there were static manually operated displays. Real-time information like flight delays, arrival-departure schedules, baggage losses, immigration process were too critical to handle with static board. Digital signages have made things easier. Besides, commercial promotions within the terminals are also sharing these displays. This saves lot of cost and space.

Admission procedures, campus updates, campus-facility usage are some of the key information education institutes need to communicate. Digital signage solves the problem with absorbing contents.

Digital signage solves this problem. With entertaining and dynamic contents, electronic displays are effective media to promote products too.

Hotels, cafes and restaurants are also making use of digital signage to communicate with customers. Budget hotels display check-in and check out procedures and other information on electronic displays. It cuts staff costs.
