The savvy early adopters of digital signage and digital signage integrators are already seeing the benefits of how this medium can affect audiences. We already know that broadcasting looped video/animated images via digital billboards/signage is a highly effective method of attracting viewers. So how can you top that? By adding live streaming video content to your digital messaging.
Providing real-time information on topics such as weather, traffic, financials or late-breaking news, adds a more compelling component to an already eye-catching visual medium. The in-motion element catches your audience’s eye, but the live, news-worthy information holds their attention. What better way for an enterprise or government body to effectively deliver crucial communications?
