A Guide to Digital Signs
What are Digital Signage Screens
Digital signage displays enable targeted advertising and promotional messages to consumers via moving digital images (or slides) on a digital LCD screen (backlit with LEDs) or LED Pixel screens (with individual LEDs actually making up the screen itself). The digital content can be frequently and easily managed and updated either directly to the digital signage screen or remotely through a local network or the internet.
