Vimeo is a video-uploading platform where users can watch and download high-quality videos without ads. This app allows users to display videos on digital signage screens to enhance screen visuals and add animation. With this feature, you can showcase company-wide promotional videos, restaurant and menu promotional features, educational videos for the classroom, videos discussing logistical best practices, and more.
Vimeo offers an impressive platform for hosting video content. But it’s not as popular as YouTube.
For companies or businesses that use Vimeo to host their videos, Mvix CMS software can easily pull these videos. In other words, your videos can be pulled directly and displayed on your digital signage. This is a great alternative for those trying to bypass ads on YouTube. It’s an ad-free platform and a way to show visitors videos. Additionally, it’s a great welcoming tool to use for lobby signs. Businesses that also create commercials or ads for their products can also find numerous benefits by displaying this in storefront digital signage or throughout their business.
There are also multiple markets that can benefit from this feature including educational institutions displaying videos for students as learning materials, internal communication displaying company videos in breakrooms and meeting rooms, and restaurants displaying recipe videos, reviews videos, and more.
