Solutions for showcasing your digital signage presentations on display screens

A variety of media can be used to promote your business activities on public area display screens. You may wish to display a video, a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation or a presentation created with digital signage software.   Typically, you connect the computer to a display screen.  This can create problems as to where to house the computer. Fortunately, there are hardware solutions on the market.

Mini computers, also referred to as media players, such as the Edis Mini PC Signage Player, are small form factor PCs designed to fit behind the display screen, normally in the space between the screen and bracketry.  Some bracket manufacturers even produce brackets with built-in PC holder.   This solution keeps the computer out of sight, thus reducing the risk of tampering or theft.

Display screen manufacturers, such as NEC Displays, offer large format display screens for digital signage applications that include an OPS slot for a Slot-in PC.  This also reduces the risk of tampering or theft as the PC is hidden from view.
