Evolution of Digital Signage

Nowadays, Digital Signage has acquired a widespread presence in many sectors. Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Restaurants, and Malls are some of the places where Digital Signage is being utilized on a massive level. All businesses, big or small are now considering and comprehending the need, benefits, and power of Digital Signage. Lately, Brands have focused less on pushing customers to buy and more on developing relationships with them. Brands have struggled in trying to find the most appropriate approach to connect with their customers. Today it seems that if a business or organization isn’t using digital signage, they are behind the times. While this isn’t necessarily true, what is true is that more and more industries are using technology to share their message with the world.


The journey from traditional print signage to digital signage began in the 1970s when electronic stores linked televisions and VCRs to playback recorded messages and advertisements. As television came into demand and technology began to flourish, hardware like the VCR was born. VCR is the first indication that video could be produced, stored, and played back for promotional reasons. By the1970s, retailers started taking advantage of the 'produce and play information later’ concept. Commercials or advertisements were played in-house to grab the customer’s attention. There is a funny story about how the term ‘Digital Signage’ was first spelled. Apparently, a security guard didn’t know what the network of video walls he was looking at was called, so he referred to them as digital signage. From there, it is alleged that Neil Longuet-Higgins from SIS Digital coined the term digital signage. Digital signage relies on different pieces of hardware to deliver content. Typically, these mediums are the display screens and the media player. The content that is supposed to be displayed on the signage is created with software.
