2. Digital Signage Content Delivery - how will you get the content to the type of display you have chosen for your digital signage? Direct delivery, Wired Network Delivery, Wireless Network Delivery or Internet Delivery. Networking - Standard IP networking is most common, and management over the internet, cellular or even Satellite is available.

How Can Digital Signage Help Boost Sales?
Why is Digital Signage Exploding in Popularity? Why Do You see it EVERYWHERE? Because it has Value.
Although it sometimes may be difficult to put a specific ROI (Return On Investment) number to the Digital Signage explosion, there have been studies that show do show an increase in sales. A recent study that included Digital Special Boards in a Fast Food Restaurant, showed a 40% Increase in the sale of items displayed on the video versus on a static menu board.
Retail items displayed in a video raise customer attention and awareness by 60% or more. This translates directly into increased sales and upsell opportunities. The ability to show complimentary items can not be overstated in a general marketing sense.
An often overlooked value of Digital Signage is the associated Customer Goodwill that can be generated in an Office environment, Business Lobby, Medical Practitioner or General Customer Queue as people watch and learn about your business, history, latest charity event or opportunity.
