What is digital signage hardware?

Digital signage hardware is the equipment you need to display your digital signage content. It includes two main components – a digital display screen and a media player. 

The screen shows your content to your audience. It could be a TV or other device like a computer or tablet. A media player is a device that stores and plays your content. You’ll also need digital signage software to create and control your content from a web browser.

What to look for in digital signage hardware

Choosing the right digital signage hardware can be challenging if you don’t know what to look for, especially if you have multiple locations. Here are a few considerations to get you started, or let us help you discover the best digital signage solution for your needs and budget.

  • Screen size and resolution
    Make sure you choose a screen that’s large enough to be visible and capture attention but not so huge that it overwhelms your space. You also want a screen that has a high enough resolution to display your content without pixelation or distortion.
  • Screen brightness and contrast
    Look for a screen that will be bright enough to see in different lighting conditions but not so bright that it causes glare or eye strain. Ensure it also has enough contrast to make your content stand out.
  • Screen durability and reliability
    Durability and reliability affect the lifespan and performance of your hardware. You want a screen made with quality materials and technology that can withstand wear and tear, weather, vandalism and other potential damage.
  • Media player connectivity and compatibility
    Look for a media player compatible with your screen that can connect via an HDMI cable or wireless. You need to check your media player is compatible with your digital signage software and supports various formats.
  • Media player performance and security
    Ensure your media player has enough storage space, memory, and processing power to play your content smoothly without lag or interruption. Check it has security features like encryption and passwords to protect your content.
  • Hardware installation and maintenance
    Choosing hardware that’s easy to install, set up, maintain and update is best. Many businesses seek professional assistance for installation and maintenance, which can make life easier.

What does digital signage hardware cost?

The cost of digital signage hardware depends on various factors such as the type, size, quality, and quantity of the hardware components and the software, installation and maintenance costs.

Digital signage is affordable and has a strong return on investment. Studies show that average sales grow by 30% when businesses introduce digital signage. There are also saving from not spending money getting posters printed or paying staff to update static signs.

FAQ

You’ll need digital display screens along with mounting systems, media players, services, cabling, and other essentials. Choosing the right digital signage software is also a critical decision. Book a free consult to determine the best digital signage solution for you.

Think about things like location (outdoor screens need to be weather and tamper-resistant, while indoor screens don’t), operating hours (you’ll need a commercial-grade screen if your signs are operational day and night) and functionality (what content will you be playing and what are you hoping to encourage your customers to do?). Talk to us for free advice from a digital signage expert.

Mandoe’s digital signage software connects to most display hardware, including monitors, TVs, tablets, and professional displays. Book a free consult to find out what’s best for you.

A consumer screen is a TV or monitor designed for home or personal use, while a commercial screen is built for business or professional use. Commercial screens typically have higher brightness, contrast, durability and reliability than consumer screens. They also have longer warranty periods and lower failure rates. We recommend commercial screens when you want long hours of operation, high visibility and low maintenance. Book a free consult to find out what best suits your requirements.

Some hardware is plug-and-play, so you just need to connect it to a power source and a network connection, and it’s ready to go. Some hardware requires more complex installation and configuration like mounting brackets, cables and network configurations. To ensure you install and set up your digital signage hardware safely and correctly, talk to us to discuss your options.
