Continuing to Grow the Retail Digital Signage Economy
By 2017, the global digital signage market is expected to top USD 17.1 billion. That is more than twice the USD 7.88 billion it realized in 2012. And with Intel’s prediction that 10 million media players will power 22 million digital screens by 2015, these are exciting times.
For solution providers, these are also challenging times. Developing and delivering continuously evolving, state-of-the-art digital signage—including LCD displays, media players, content management systems, device management consoles, wireless networking, security, and cloud connectivity—is time intensive and often requires expertise in many new areas.
To ease system integration and simplify the design, development, deployment, use, and management of digital signage networks, Intel has developed the Intelligent Pluggable System Specification (IPSS).
IPSS builds on the success of its predecessor, the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) by encompassing the entire digital signage system: hardware (the OPS focus), software, and middleware technologies.
This broadened spectrum further advances the industry’s ability to modularize digital signage and opens the door to new usage models that are compelling, cost effective, and revenue generating.
