Summary: Digital Signage is one of the few areas of AV where there’s more to the project than just hardware, software and install. Content creation, custom programming, training, and player setup are all part of the project. It’s important for integrators to offer a total solution for Digital Signage, including content. Selling content requires looking at content strategy first to ensure overall project success and client satisfaction. This webinar covers how content strategy drives your entire digital signage project, including hardware, software and other technology choices.
