Wireless displays are increasingly replacing hand-written or printed signs for rooms in offices and hotels or price labels and article descriptions in retail. Modern digital displays are versatile and easy to update, since they are controlled via WiFi. The extremely low power consumption of WiFi diaplays provides years of operation free of an external power supply.
In the retail industry the use of digital signs – also known as “Electronic Shelf Labels” – is growing very rapidly. Digital signage POS (point of sale material) and other in-store wireless signage gives retailers more flexibility with price actions and new products.
Other industries have also come to enjoy the many benefits of a digital signage system. For example, the digital signs for meeting or conference rooms can be automatically updated from calendar management systems such as Outlook Exchange, Domino or iCalender. In healthcare, the wireless displays and their integrated interface show which treatment rooms or operating theaters are free or occupied. The staff in restaurants no longer need to place cards on reserved tables. Instead, the name, time and the number of people are simply radioed to a digital display. In the same way, digital menu boards provide guests with any information about menus and prices without any paper or cabling.
