“What are effective cost-reduction strategies that can be employed with digital signage to keep your capital investment and maintenance low?”
We’re trying to work towards establishing standards for display and player hardware. Standardizing on a limited range of commercial/enterprise grade hardware helps reduce total cost of ownership because the hardware runs longer and performs better. This means longer replacement cycles, fewer hardware maintenance support issues, and longer warranty coverage. Commercial/enterprise hardware devices cost more up front than lower quality or residential hardware, but end up costing less in the long run.
