A small computer that lets you show digital content on a screen.
Digital signage begins with a content management system that lets you create multi-media presentations for your screens.
Once content has been created, you need a way to upload it to a screen… This is where a digital signage player comes in. Players are small computers that sit behind screens, talking to your software to retrieve your content.
The alternative to using an external media player is investing in built-in digital signage displays. These can set you back thousands of pounds and are usually overkill for most deployments.
External media players are a far more cost-effective solution, able to transform any existing screen into a dynamic display.
Digital signage media players vary a lot in size, operating system, power and price.
Players range from the size of a memory-stick to small boxes that you can fit in one hand.
In recent years, the technical specs of media players have increased while their prices have continued to fall.
