  • What is digital signage?  
      1. Digital signage is a sub-segment of electronic signage. Digital displays use technologies such as LCD, LED, projection and e-paper to display digital images, video, web pages, weather data, restaurant menus, or text. They can be found in public spaces, transportation systems, museums, stadiums, retail stores, hotels, restaurants and corporate buildings etc., to provide wayfinding, exhibitions, marketing and outdoor advertising. 
  • How does traditional outdoor advertising work?
      1. The process works like this.   A business comes up with an ad they want to distribute to attract new customers.  They contact an outdoor advertising agency who has many signs around the country or in a specific area.   The ad is sold for time on the screens. This process is very manual and has drawbacks as emails have to go back and for and generally slows down the process.  Also, the inventory is used by a select few and is not opened to the masses. 
  • How is outdoor advertising evolving?
      1. Today we have what is called outdoor exchanges and digital exchanges.  They are separate and the outdoor exchanges don’t necessarily place nice together.   The ad provider puts the ad on the exchange, and then the ad is moved to inventory matching criteria on a per impression basis.
