Digital signage has been steadily cropping up over the last several years, and is revolutionizing the way organizations communicate with customers and employees. Look around and you’ll realize how many printed signs have been replaced by digital ones – in some cases, even that billboard you see as you drive or walk down the street. Now you see flat screens in your local Walmart, doctor’s office, school or university, or restaurant – and even in places like elevators or taxis.
To be in Times Square in New York City is to see digital signage on steroids – a place where people actually go to see the advertisements and be part of the scene.
What makes digital signage different?
It’s placed-based: it reaches on-the-go consumers where they are
It’s dynamic: when networked, screens from throughout the country can be updated from a central location.
It's measurable: audience tracking technologies let you know exactly how many people are looking at their messages.
Digital signage and Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) offers advertisers reliable, measured dynamic media presentation with very concise market, location, timing and demographic targeting at a scale and price that makes DOOH one of the best advertising tools available.
