Digital signage refers to the use of technologies such as projection, LED, or LCD screens to display content that might include video, streaming media, graphics, and general information (check our in-depth what is digital signage post for more info!).
What makes it stand out however is the digital signage software that drives the displays.
The entire ecosystem can be split into the content, software, and hardware segments. First you have the content that will go on the screen. This can be pictures, videos, or a variety of other content applications.
These files and content apps are handled through the software. The hardware is your digital signage player that will then display the content on your screens.
As our hardware also comes with our software bundled for free, that means you don’t need a monthly subscription to keep your content going. Our software also works with a variety of options such 3rd party players, mini-pcs, android, and more!
Mvix also provides content creation, signature care, installation, and managed services to encompass all your digital signage needs.
The content you need really depends on the solution you have. For restaurants, a simple image display for the menu with a social media feed is a solid choice. For offices and manufacturing, you might want to focus on current/upcoming company events with data visualization charts.
Schools however can utilize almost every content app as solutions can be used in the classroom, hallway, lobbies, and cafeterias.
Digital signage is primarily a communication tool. It lets businesses, schools, restaurants, and more convey information in an attractive and easy way.
What sets digital signage apart from digital displays is the software. This software lets you quickly view, edit, and change your displays remotely so you can manage multiple locations at once.
Depending on the solution you choose, you can expect to spend anywhere from a small monthly fee to hundreds of dollars a month. Some providers also offer a hardware/software bundle that can help keep costs down.
There are also other costs to consider such as content management, the screens you need, and quality support.

The two types of screen types you have are LED & LCD and the displays are split between commercial and consumer. While commercial displays usually have a higher upfront cost, the long term benefits outweigh the price. The commercial displays have a higher brightness, portrait/landscape options, longer warranties, and can operate for longer hours.
