Smart digital signage displays are cutting capital costs, removing points of failure and adding a wide range of cool and useful capabilities for network operators.

Brian Fitzpatrick, president and CEO of the Utah-based digital signage solutions company Revel Media Group, says Samsung’s Tizen OS-based Smart Signage Platform display series has steadily evolved and proven very popular with customers. The wide variety of options for screens with built-in System-on-Chip media players is important, but end users also like how Smart Signage cuts out the cost of an external media player, and eliminates the need for failure-prone external power supplies and HDMI signal cables.

UCView Media, a California-based digital signage software company, has been developing to the Smart Signage Platform for the past three years. CEO Guy Avital says he and his team appreciate the steadily increasing flexibility of the platform, such as the addition of GPS support and triggered content. “Samsung has made a good effort to adjust the technology to the requirements of the market,” he says.
