Over the past several years, the Digital Signage industry has progressed significantly toward becoming the default solution for communicating to audience, clients and visitors in any type of venue. Digital Signage System Integrators have been investing efforts to open new territories for their services, and they have been successful, although the journey has just begun. Digital Signage companies, from Digital Signage SaaS providers to local and widespread service providers, are using simpler and easier tools to make sure the new technology is accessible to almost anybody. One of the great technological breakthroughs is the growing use of Android-based TV boxes that serve as Digital Signage players, reducing the cost and simplifying the projects.

Some elements, however, are still putting an obstacle in front of managers before Digital Signage becomes their first option. The fact that, even with the new SaaS solution and the use of Android-based devices, Digital Signage often requires a fairly strong IT background, is holding back small businesses from adopting Digital Signage solutions.

We have seen Digital Signage implemented in large (and rich…) universities in the last decade, but the recent technological trends have opened the opportunity for any size of educational establishment to communicate with its students, visitors and staff in a flexible, dynamic, and modern way that fits the 21st century, without breaking budget constraints. The main advantage these academic/educational establishments have (from elementary schools to colleges and universities) is trained IT personal! Thus, the obstacle mentioned in the former paragraph is not relevant. Using the new advantages in Digital Signage cloud-based software, together with Android devices as players, combined with in-house IT capabilities paves the way for implementing Digital Signage for education, in any size.

Digital Signage is ready to serve education. Do you really want to stay behind?
