Purchasing a new LED digital sign, isn’t just about just deciding the size and location, for example. You also need to consider how you want to communicate with the sign. This is for when you want to update the sign with new content, adjust the display and other functions. Here are a few LED digital sign communication considerations:
- Proximity: how close will you usually be located to the sign. Some communication options like Wi-Fi mean you need to be closer to your sign when updating it. Other options like 3G, mean you can update your sign from anywhere.
- Cost: options like 3G, incur a monthly network cost that you might not have realized before having chosen this option. Whereas, other options are usually free after hookup.
- Content: there are synchronous and asynchronous options for displaying content. Synchronous (great for streaming) is basically like your computer screen monitor, while asynchronous (great for scheduled content) uses the sign‘s own controller to display content.
