Cloud-based digital signage: flexible, secure and location-independent
Cloud-based digital signage: What is cloud-based digital signage?
From innovative hotel displays to digital menu boards and storefront displays, digital signage has revolutionized advertising and information delivery in recent years. Today, companies, public institutions and authorities, but also retailers, event locations and many others benefit from the versatile, interactive screens.
Whether digital signage at the point of sale or in the doctor's office (for example in the form of a waiting room TV): Especially comprehensive solutions with multiple devices that play appropriate content at the right time are becoming increasingly popular. This is particularly true of interactive displays and displays with touch functions. However, modern digital signage pillars, video walls and screens also place high demands on the software used. It must reliably supply the devices with the desired videos, images or presentations. Only in this way can they ultimately be displayed on the info displays.
The best way to achieve this is via cloud-based digital signage! Here, a digital signage cloud, i.e. a storage and data processing solution that can be accessed online, is used. In this environment, the software for your devices is operated and connected to the displays. All screens or (outdoor) steles can thus be controlled easily and centrally and be loaded with the desired content.
Digital Signage: Cloud-based or on-premise - What are the differences?
With cloud-based digital signage, you have the ability to log into your software from anywhere in the world. All you need is a web browser with an Internet connection and your access data. Once you have logged into your cloud-based digital signage software, you can start editing.
You first compile your content with just a few clicks via an intuitive web interface. Then you select the screens, times and other settings you want. Once you're happy with everything, the cloud software takes over output to the appropriate displays. Later, you can just as easily make changes, change schedules or remove content - and that too, completely independent of location.
The alternative to this are so-called on-premise solutions. Here, the content for your devices is hosted by yourself, in your own server or data center. However, since the effort required to provide the computing power is quite high, such systems are rarely practical.

The benefits: How can companies profit from cloud-based digital signage?
The last thing your IT department needs is more work. Managing digital signage devices and software is very time-consuming. It therefore makes sense to hand over this task to a professional digital signage agency. You will benefit from the following advantages.
Easy setup without technical know-how
Even without technical expertise, our cloud-based digital signage solution is ready to go in just a few steps. Should any difficulties arise, our qualified support will help you immediately.
Management from anywhere
Cloud-based digital signage allows you to manage your displays from anywhere. Log in via the access interface and edit your content as you see fit. This allows you to respond to last-minute changes or make necessary adjustments at any time.
The huge costs of your own server or an entire data center are eliminated when using cloud-based digital signage. Power, maintenance, a dedicated IT department ... make on-premise solutions significantly more expensive than cloud-based digital signage software.
