Frequently Asked Questions about Digital Signage

What is Digital Signage

Digital signage is multimedia content shown on digital displays with the goal of delivering targeted messages to specific audiences at specific times. The three components of digital signage are the display (hardware), the content and a media player (to get the content messages on the display).

Is there a difference between dynamic and digital signage?

No, digital and dynamic signage are the same thing. It is a specialized display that is used for multimedia content to be displayed in public environments.

How do I know if digital signage is a good option for my business?

Digital signage is a good option for you if you have multiple messages, need to change your message or promotion frequently, or need to engage people while they wait in line. Digital signage can complement your static signs and provides a great way to educate, inform and entertain viewers using motion graphics and color.

What kind of content can I use?

Content for digital signage can include text, photos, eye-catching motion graphics, video clips, live feeds and other assets to connect with your audience. FASTSIGNS can create a series of short content spots for you using your brand assets. Digital sign content can be used to communicate product information, safety reminders, employee updates, event schedules, weather, news, survey results, testimonials, room or office locations, and much more.

Where can digital signage be used?

Digital signage can be used indoor and outdoor for events, in corporate offices, manufacturing warehouses, healthcare facilities, restaurants, retail, hotels and campuses.
