Managing Digital Signage
A digital sign is composed of:
- Content player: Computer that powers a digital signage display
- Content Manager: Software used to edit, deploy, and schedule signage content
- Digital signage server: Coordinates updates sent from the Content Manager software to the digital sign
Signage can be managed via a web interface or through a desktop application. The desktop software is a full featured application that allows administrators to manage user permissions, add/remove signs, edit signage designs (templates), and schedule content deployments. The web interface can be used for content management and scheduling.
Content can be deployed to a single screen or multiple displays. When content is deployed, it is sent to a centralized server which manages all deployments. Instructions are sent to the selected signs which grab the digital assets to display on-screen.
