The experts agree: the digital signage industry is experiencing staggering growth. Jose Avalos, director of Visual Retail at Intel, predicts 22 million digital signs will be active worldwide by 2015 and cites a 40 percent compounded annual industry growth rate. The industry, says research firm IHS, Inc., earned nearly USD 14 billion in 2013 and the firm estimates revenue to increase to USD 14 billion by 2017.
All of these digital signs—location-based and in-store screens, interactive displays and kiosks, digital posters, interactive vending machines and gas pumps, menu boards, and more—are components of literally thousands of digital media networks. And for every network, there’s a network operator who is faced with the task of enabling the delivery of the right information in the right place at the right time.
