Selecting software for a digital signage network

Internet Connectivity 

Having sufficient bandwidth for streaming is an essential arrangement to make before you install your digital signs. If you are working in an area with low internet bandwidth, it may be necessary to use content that is stored internally on the device rather than using a streaming option. It is also important to designate an internet connection for the digital signs to ensure there are no bandwidth interruptions from increased foot traffic or other factors.  

Power 

Digital sign networks rely on a steady stream of electricity. It is essential to protect the system from power surges or blackouts with an “uninterruptable power supply” or UPS device. Investing in a UPS device will help to protect the digital sign ecosystem long-term and help all connected devices last longer. 

 

Security  

Remember that all digital signs are attractive targets for hackers. Be sure to protect the devices on your network. We also have a white paper about this!
