When thinking about outdoor digital signage, most people automatically think of advertising. And while outdoor digital advertising is a common use for outdoor digital signage – due to its prominence, flexibility and versatility – there are other reasons why businesses and institutions install outdoor screens.
From industrial premises and public buildings to colleges and religious buildings outdoor digital signage can provide many benefits.
Practicality is of course a major importance of using an outdoor screen. If there is no need to provide information, there is no point in having the screen; however, if you have existing outdoor communication methods such as notice-boards, signs and loud speaker announcements, outdoor digital signage can provide many advantages over these.
Immediacy and Flexibility
One advantage of outdoor digital signage is the ability to provide real time information. You don’t have to wait for somebody to pin up a notice or place a new poster up as information can be uploaded instantly providing immediacy. This can ensure that information is disseminated as soon as it comes in – vital for emergency or important information.
The flexibility of outdoor digital signage is another advantage over other information provision. Different information can be scheduled for relevant times such as at lunch or end of the working day – even advertisements can be sold when there is no information to display, generating a revenue to pay for the display.
Modernity and Aesthetics
But for many, the greatest advantage of using outdoor digital signage is the impression the screen gives to customers, competitors and staff. Notice boards and ripped or faded poster do not send the right image for most businesses; however, a modern, sleek flat screen device can add a touch of modernity and twenty-first century technology to the business providing the right image to impress your customers.
