How it got here:

  • Digital signs, also known as digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertisements or digital media networks, belong to a segment of the signage industry that capitalizes on technologies such as LCD, LED, and projectors to display digital marketing images, videos, maps, and other dynamic and interactive content.
  • Digital signage evolved concurrently with the internet in the early 90s as static duratrans signs and TV commercial effectiveness had stagnated. Through the use of video, players, and commercial displays via the internet, the idea of digital signage was born.
  • Initially very expensive, displays such as LCD and projectors dropped significantly in price during the early 2000s, making them much more accessible for all organizations.
  • Once established, retailers, restaurants, casinos, and hotels began exploring options to provide guest services and advertisements in much more interactive ways, starting with meeting room wallboards to public space end-caps to ambiance-creating lobby columns.
