How does Digital Signage work?

The solution works by combining:

  • A digital display or screen that either connects to or includes an embedded media player that works with the software.
  • The media player that downloads the content from the software, stores, then displays this information on the display.
  • The digital signage software that is also called the Content Management Software (CMS). This is essentially the “back-end” of the solution where you create and upload your content.
  • The content itself. This is an often overlooked aspect of the process but is generally the most important. Creating up-to-date and powerful content can maximize the signage investment.

There are many options for displays, players, and software for you to choose from. Finding which combination that works best is often on a case-by-case basis but will utilize the above components to bring your solution to life.

What To Look For In A Vendor


Are they known in the industry? What’s their track record? Look for customer testimonials, case studies and success stories.


Do you need just one part of a digital signage solution (hardware, software, etc.) or a full service turnkey solution?

Service Options

Does the provider stand behind its products? Policies for support, ongoing maintenance, and warranties?

Industry Focus

Some providers specialize in healthcare digital signage, while others may specialize in retail options.

While there are plenty of choices in the market for a versatile variety of digital signage solutions, engaging with a supplier that can provide a complete, full-service solution has been considered one of the important recipes of success.

How much does it cost?

The first and foremost question is how much does it cost? Or better yet what is the total cost of ownership?

The real value of digital signs is in the fact that it is the only visual communication mechanism for companies to transmit its messages in real time, with full, dynamic control over its content and audience.

In fact, research conducted by OTX, a global consumer research and consulting firm, shows that 63% of adults find that advertising on digital screens “catches their attention.” This confirms the stopping power of display signage, as people consider this media to be more unique and entertaining, and less annoying than both traditional and online media.

You’ll also have to consider if you would like to pay for a monthly or one-time cost subscription to the software. Most software vendors offer only monthly subscriptions with Mvix standing out as the only turnkey provider of digital signage solutions with lifetime license options.
