Planning digital signage in new buildings
Some buildings have refurbished their structures to keep up with modern times. Building owners looking to include digital signage as part of the refurbishment process may see it as a method to boost branding by posting interesting and new content.
Digital signage is defined as a category of signage that uses LED and LCD screens that display images, text or videos as content. These signs can be found inside and outside of establishments such as restaurants, malls, office buildings, train and bus stations and more.
Installing LED and LCD screens in any part of a building can have an impact on the building’s physical features and electrical wiring. Mounts or platforms, electrical wirings and other cables, should also be prepared beforehand for easier installation.
The fast pace of technology development means it may be necessary to make upgrades ti digital signage. Hardware and software should be flexible and compatible with other systems. Owners should understand capabilities and limitations of their systems in terms of upgrades.
