Digital Signage Servers and Players
The media servers and players that store and run the preprogrammed messages of digital signage take many forms and exhibit a wide range of capabilities. It’s safe to say at this point that there is a perfect media player out there for any conceivable application, at a price point that will fit any budget. The challenge is in sorting out the entries in what has become a very competitive field. It helps to know the range of media file types that content creators will provide and the degree of automation that will be needed, as well as to keep in mind possible options for future expansion. There will definitely be a balance to consider between going light on the initial investment and replacing the hardware later or making a more substantial commitment with expansion in mind.
