Digital Signage Displays Guide
Digital signage is an advertising technology that uses specialised software to display information and marketing messages on LCD, LED and projection screens. Examples of content that can be displayed include static promotional images, menus, video, weather forecasts and interactive content.
At Discount Displays we aim to make buying and installing a digital signage solution simple and cost-effective. From simple, entry-level plug and play systems to full network displays, which can display live feeds and be updated anywhere in the world using top-tier software. We have a wide range of digital signage solutions from wall-mounted menu boards to free-standing interactive displays.
We offer a live demonstration service at our office in Croydon so you can see first hand the instant impact digital signage can have on your business. Call us on 0844 800 1020 to book your demo appointment and for more information on our range of digital signboards.
About Our Network Digital Signs
Our screens have an integrated Android network media player; making installation a breeze.
Typically network solutions require you to invest in additional networking hardware - complicating the installation process and the overall system. Hardware and software usually come from different sources which can result in confusion and conflict when identifying any potential faults. In contrast to this, any issues with our screens or Digital Signage software will be dealt with directly by us; one supplier, one solution.
Their integrated Android network media player provides a super fast processing speed allowing for improved communication with the CMS. This means that you can update your screens quicker than ever before. It also allows you to display a live website; this can be anything from a live URL feed provided by a third party to your social media profile. The Android network media player also allows you to run your own software should you already have a CMS solution.
Updating your screens is extremely simple. Login to www.MySignagePortal.com to upload media, manage playlists, create your own templates and schedule content for whenever you want; giving you complete control over your network. No special software installation or dedicated PC is required, you can update your screens from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
Connect your Network Screens to the internet wirelessly via Wi-Fi or via a Local Area Connection. If an internet connection is not available a 3G router can be incorporated into the screen, meaning that we can provide an integrated network solution for any location.
About Our Plug and Play Digital Signs
The Android Advertising Displays come with a built-in HD media player, allowing you to update them using a USB memory stick. Load your pictures and videos onto a USB memory stick then insert it into the display, which will copy the files into its internal flash memory. Once you remove the memory stick the screen will then start playing the pictures and videos in a continuous loop.
For more advanced use the Android Advertising Displays come with a piece of free Scheduling Software for displaying different content at different times of the day as well as setting image display durations and transition effects. For example, a restaurant can create three daily schedules; the breakfast menu in the morning, a lunch menu in the afternoon and the dinner menu in the evening. If you prefer to keep it simple you can update the screen directly without using the software.
For a small charge you can also upgrade your screen to be networked, allowing you to remotely update your screen via LAN, Wi-Fi or 3G. Take advantage of our scalable Queen’s Award-winning solution by upgrading your standalone display to a network solution without the need for any additional hardware.
If you want you can also display a “ticker tape” style scrolling text message along the bottom of the screen, to help you get your message across or help highlight any specific promotions or offers. This is also great when used as a dynamic ticker feed displaying a welcome message.
