What is Digital Signage?


Digital signage is a digital sign that uses technology to display content such as images, videos, streaming media, or information. It is becoming more and more popular in restaurants, airports or shopping malls, but what is it and what do you need to set it up?


''Digital signage is a sign that uses technology to display its content''


Digital signage can be used for interactive menu boards, digital advertising billboards, video walls, digital surveillance systems and security, and self-service kiosks to display events, information and better deliver customer service.


As an example, a restaurant can use digital interactive menu boards to assist customers in ordering food and drink. In a shopping centre, digital signage can display events, news, customer information or social media feeds.

Digital signage can be used in a variety of ways, in a number of different industries. From important information at a doctors surgery/ hospital to content for travellers in an airport/ train station - such as the weather, a news feed, transport timetable and more.

What else do you need to set up a digital signage network?




Digital Signage Software, Content, Advertisement, Digital Menu Board

Digital Signage Software

Digital signage software is a computer-based, and often a cloud-based program that allows the users to create and distribute content via digital media signs. This content can be played via playback, via a content management system (CMS) or via device management.


Some software vendors also have the option of analysing the audience that watches the interactive content. This content is usually applicable for advertisement, menu boards, in-store promotions or informational content. If you want to know more about digital signage software, contact our digital signage software partners for more information.








Digital signage players come in various shapes and sizes, but one thing they have in common is the wide variety of ports. These ports allow you to create a network and set up the foundation of the solution.


You can connect displays, digital signage accessories, other computing devices and more. If you want to know more about creating a digital signage network, read our blog post.

Create a Solution

AOPEN manufacturers computing hardware, but that doesn't create a solution.




Hardware & Software Partners System Integrators & Resellers
For a complete setup, you need hard- and software, such as displays and software, depending on the solution you want to create. If you don't know what you need for your solution, contact us for the advice! Buying separate components doesn't create a solution.
