What is Dynamic Digital Signage?

Dynamic digital signage, by definition, is a specialized form of video broadcast aimed at a very narrow niche audience in which video or multimedia content is displayed for informational or advertising purposes. A digital sign usually consists of a computer or playback device connected to a large, bright digital screen such as a commercial-grade LCD or plasma display.

Dynamic digital signage is used in department stores, schools, libraries, office buildings, medical facilities, airports, train and bus stations, banks, auto dealerships and other public venues. It is also commonly used in corporate, employee-facing environments. If the display is connected to a computer, the data on the screen can be updated in real time by means of an Internet or proprietary network connection. The system can employ multiple screens if an extra-large display is required.

There are advantages that dynamic digital signs offer over printed or other types of static signs. The biggest advantage is that digital signs can be updated by remote control when content needs to be changed (which makes them “dynamic”), while static signs require individual replacement and physical travel to sign sites by personnel. Digital signs can also be enhanced with visuals, video and multimedia for more compelling presentations.

Dynamic digital signage can play an integral role in a business’ signage strategy. While most signage applications will continue to involve printed graphics, the addition of a digital display into an environment can drive home important marketing messages, complement visual themes, and serve as a source of entertainment and information.

 

Market Overview

The global dynamic digital signage market is growing anywhere from the single digits to more than 40 percent per year, according to research published in December 2013 by InfoTrends. IHS, Inc. projects that the market for dynamic digital signage will reach $17.1 billion in worldwide sales by 2017, with the U.S. market accounting for over one third of
this figure.

There are two types of applications for digital signage: advertising-based applications such as retail and restaurant implementations and information-based applications such as the installations you might find in corporate, medical and educational settings.
