Introduction

Over the past fi ve years, there have been dramatic advances in display technology, network infrastructure, components, and software for creating, managing, distributing, and displaying digital images and video content. Many developments indicate that the market for digital signage and in-store TV is poised for rapid growth, including:

  • Numerous technology leaders continue to make major investments in all aspects of digital     signage and in-store TV systems that are yielding significant improvements in size, quality, form     factor, reliability, and costs.
  • We have seen important advances in networking infrastructure, with many sites having access to     affordable broadband communications through landline and wireless services.
  • There are continuing improvements in content authoring and management systems, making it     easier and more affordable to create effective visual and audio communications for a variety of     applications.
  • Many companies are continuing to push the use of technology to drive sales, improve productivity,     and enhance the customer experience (e.g. kiosks, wireless Internet, electronic shopping carts,     inventory management systems).
  • Digital signage and in-store TV networks are another aspect of the store of the future.
  • Larger networks and better-established rate structures are emerging, enabling brand managers     and media buyers to more effectively plan for their use of this media.
  • We are seeing the continued fragmentation of traditional media and choices for consumers in     how, when, and where to “consume” content (e.g. DVRs, mobile handsets, video downloads). The     dilution of traditional media is increasing the importance of POP-based promotional systems.
  • There are a growing number of installations and success stories related to digital signage,     increasing the awareness of and confidence in these systems.
