What is digital signage?
It’s an effective way to communicate with your specific target group via digital displays.
Digital signage is the displaying of targeted information through digital displays. It’s also called narrowcasting and it’s a form of screen communication. With narrowcasting, you target a specific, narrow audience: that's why we call it narrowcasting instead of broadcasting!
Digital signage gives you an additional channel of communication to reach your target audience group. You can inform and inspire your customers, patients and staff using digital signage displays. Digital signage is highly versatile, and can be successfully implemented in countless industries.

In the online management environment, or CMS, you create your playlists in an easy, highly intuitive way.

Finally, add a schedule to your playlist. This will determine where and when your playlist will be displayed.
