When you first walk into the DSE exhibit hall, it’s hard to miss the brightly shining displays and the various types of mounts and enclosures. While they have their differences, there are also plenty of similarities. First and foremost, each one is being driven by some type of software. From content creation and management to software as a service, exhibitors at DSE run the gamut.
Alan Brawn, in his article Understanding the 7 Key Elements of Digital Signage, describes selecting a software vendor as “one of the most important choices you have to make for your project.” He continues, “There are more than 350 software providers on the market, and selecting the one that fits your project can be intimidating and is available in two forms: Subscription or software as a service (SaaS), and as bundled or packaged software bought outright or included with a display purchase. Digital signage software packages are usually made up of a group of components, each designed to perform different tasks.”
With so many options, it’s hard to know where to start. Fortunately, both the DSE website and mobile app make it easy to start building a plan. And having a game plan going into DSE will make your experience more productive.
