Top Ten Outdoor Digital Signage Tips

Using outdoor digital signage poses different challenges to indoor systems, protect the device against the elements to get the content delivered but the benefits of the use of LCD and plasma outdoor for digital advertising and information is that you can reach a lot wider audience. There are of course many pitfalls in implementing outdoor digital signage, here are ten ideas to avoid making costly mistakes:

10. Have a goal – You must have a clear objective to mind. If you are investing in outdoor digital signage systems, you must focus on what you want to achieve, more customers or strengthen your brand or maybe you want to entertain or inform. Set your expectations before investing in any system.

9. Cost Plan – digital display is never cheap, always plan for everything. It surprises me to hear of companies that have spent small fortunes on digital display systems outdoors to have run out of money for things like maintenance or even content.

8. Use the right people to manage your project – often digital signage projects are grown on it. Of course, there are technical aspects DOOH (Digital Home) but it is much more suited to someone with marketing experience. Also make sure you have a clear project manager, there are many aspects to the outdoor digital display and unless someone is able to keep all the facets together your project may soon falter as soon as you hit that first hurdle. Make sure you have someone to manage and update content -. You’d be surprised how often this is overlooked

7. Position -. People can spend huge amounts of money on digital display campaigns but if LCD, plasma or LED screens are in the wrong place this could be money in the tube if no one pays any attention

6. Protection against rain – Outdoors is a totally different environment from within and all signaling device will protect against the elements. Always ensure good quality plasma or LCD houses the device box. Often 4 European standards IP65 or NEMA USA applied for outdoor digital signage enclosures.

5. Choose the right software and tools – Do not get distracted with expensive design tools and often too complicated. Often, simple office desktop tools like PowerPoint will create good quality and innovative content

4. Testing, testing 1, 2, 3 – Good sure check your campaigns. Do not just check that the devices work, the practice of changing the content and implementation of general maintenance such as cleaning, it is often small such practices that can cause failure of a draft outdoor digital display.

3. Be innovative – Do not be afraid to try new things. Look at the different types of LCD or plasma enclosures and see what looks best. Try to place the devices in unusual places or try something new content that it hopes to get noticed. Often, the best digital signage campaigns are those where they were bold in trying something new or something different.

2. Safety – It’s unfortunate, but I know this is the world in which we live and despite lower cost LCD and plasmas they are still attractive objects for thieves. Ensure the device identifier properly protected against theft, but also ensure the LCD enclosure is rugged enough to withstand attack by vandals.

1. Content – The most important aspect of any outdoor digital signage campaign is by far the content. Content is the key, no matter how fancy your outdoor digital signage systems seems they do not display an interesting, informative or entertaining they are wasted. Be innovative and different. If you attempt to generate revenue from advertising and mix in entertainment as people become blind ad will simply ignore the messages.

Keep things interesting and mix and match advertising content more informative entertainment and other things. Make sure to use a lot of colors, moving images and keep things simple. Too many things on the screen, get confused and distracted. Audio works well too but breath on music, it can be quite annoying for many people, especially if they do not like that kind.

outdoor digital signage is a great way to develop a profile of companies, advertising, enhance brand image, to influence customer behavior and generate sales, but only works if you invest the time and effort too long with money.

Challenges of Digital Signage Outdoors

Digital signage has begun to infiltrate our daily lives. Digital out of the home advertising and digital signage can be found in many locations, almost everywhere we go.

A growing number of companies are making greater use of digital signage outdoors, where it may potentially be viewed by hundreds more potential customers than were it fixed inside.

Though it is not overly complex technology there are several challenges that have to be addressed when considering using an outdoor digital signage system as part of an advertising or information campaign.

The weather is possibly the biggest challenge to be faced when mounting digital signage. Although some areas may have fairly predictable weather patterns, most do not. Potentially the delicate and expensive LCD or plasma monitor that displays the advertisements will be subjected to both extreme heat and freezing cold, both of which can seriously damage the function of the equipment.

One solution to this problem is to invest in a digital signage enclosure, a sealed unit that encases the monitor and has the capability to cool and heat the delicate digital signage system, as well as keep it safely sealed away from moisture.

These tough, secure LCD enclosures also help address another of the largest concerns that face those who choose to use digital signage outdoors. Vandalism is a fact of life. This is nothing new to the 21st century; vandals have been making mischief forever. By sealing the digital signage system in a good enclosure, the equipment is safe from damage, and even from graffiti, which is on the rise again in many cites. All a would be graffiti artist can affect is the enclosure, not the machinery within.

Placement of the outdoor signage system is another consideration. To be most effective equipment should really be placed within easy eye level of the average adult consumer. If it is a larger display, such as those seen in New Yorks Times Square, those are often catchy enough to be viewed from any height or angle however.

As the equipment and technology needed to make great use of digital signage to promote a business or service decreases in cost, it is certain that we can expect to see many more such signs popping up everywhere, advertising all manner of goods and services, or perhaps just providing the everyday information we need, such as news and the weather (accompanied by advertisements of course)

Dave is an expert in the field of digital signage, he also is the owner of Europe’s leading manufacturer of LCD enclosures, having supplied many top tier digital signage companies with outdoor signage enclosure as well as waterproof and vandal proof TV enclosures.

Keeping Your Digital Signage Protected

The protection of digital signage and advertising systems is often overlooked by keeping them protected screens and running under conditions that are suitable for LCD, is important for you to optimize the cost of their implemented in the first place.

outdoor digital signage developers often turn to securing their digital signage systems from theft and vandalism while preventing rain and other weather elements damaging the screen, some installers within digital advertising eye to the same protection.

But even LCD of trade (and plasma) TV screens are manufactured with the terms of a retail park or shop in mind that most TVs are designed and constructed for the home entertainment market.

The digital display (DS) is not only located in areas that differ from the operating conditions of a room at the front, but the DS screens are left on much longer ( sometimes 24 hours a day).

Protection for digital signage screens must do several things:
First, it must prevent the penetration of all hostile elements. Obviously in outdoor digital signage, this means preventing rainwater damage to the screen, but with interior applications while time can not be other elements concern perhaps.

The dust is common in some areas and too filers block and isolate the digital display. Keep dust from the screen will go a long way to extend the life of the LCD or plasma.

The temperature is another consideration, especially when the DS screen is left on constantly. Ensure that adequate air flow is constantly transferring heat away form the screen is important in the prevention of hotspots to grow. It is also important to prevent damage from direct sunlight, which can also burn the screen.

LCD enclosures are a cost effective solution for the protection of DS systems in both indoor and outdoor environments as cooling and insulation is necessary may be included within the LCD enclosure providing the perfect environment for any standard DS screen to operate.

Sports Venues Score With Digital Menu Boards

Sports venues also recognize that digital menu boards at their concession stands can increase sales and allow the supply of food and drink to be easily modified to fit the varying demographics attracted by different events.

Alamodome 65,000 places in San Antonio, Texas, for example, the revision of food choices, graphics and signage by Aramark dealer this year also launched digital menu boards. The two 24 concession stands of the stadium and its range of mobile carts now have 42-inch screens, displaying most menus and offers, although some show information and entertainment to keep guests waiting in line.

Some other examples of where these billboards are benefited presentation zones trade shows and leisure signs or directional signage stock in your store or office. Improve your stand with inkjet signs rolling showcase your product images. Place them anywhere, attach them to a wall using anchor bolts to label a display or attach them to a custom easel stand in the door to get clients. This is an excellent way to ensure that your customers will have easy access to car parking, comfortable rooms, entrance ways and exhaust dining ways.

They see that digital menu boards at their concession stands can increase sales and allow the food-and-beverage offered to be easily modified to suit varying demographics attracted by different events.

At almost any point you’ll notice sufficient quantities of electronics and neon displays everywhere you look. Here is an example of graphs and signaling dealer Aramark also inaugurated digital menu boards. The two 24 stadium concession stands and its range of mobile carts now have 42-inch screens, displaying most menus and offers, although some show information and entertainment to occupy the customers waiting in line. So regardless of what is displayed you are constantly market a product or another.

If you have a product information that changes frequently, it is the ideal solution for you. Unlike neon tubes of signs that can be programmed easily, you must manually assemble the words or numbers, letter by letter and number by number, which is time consuming and in most cases they are located in elevated areas This makes them more difficult to do. So that was the only way to produce such a luminous effect of time and changing LED Board allows you to change as often as you want without all the hassle.
