Signage Success Guide
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
There is no one size fits all answer when it comes to multiple screen signage displays. If you’re starting from scratch with brand new screens, you can make your digital signage management a seamless process by purchasing the right equipment and hardware.
When it comes to multiple screen displays, there are several scenarios to consider when you are implementing digital signage.
A Complete Plan for Success
Arreya software is an easy fit for multiple display projects. It can be sized to fit any configuration all within 1 channel. Where multi-screen installations go wrong is with the hardware. To implement a multi-screen digital display, thoroughly thought out hardware should be planned prior to purchase. problems arise when screens have been purchased and installed without prior thought to configuration, orientation, interactivity or even dynamic content.
Not all hardware is created equal when it comes to multiple screen displays. While sometimes it’s as easy as purchasing an extra piece of hardware, others can take hours or weeks of troubleshooting only to come up with imperfect results.
Once you know what capabilities your screens will need and how many will be in the display, you can test Arreya software with a free 30 day trial. Arreya offers you the capability to span as many screens as you need, as long as the screens can be set in a configuration that allows them to share data.
Shop for hardware that fits all your needed criteria. Buy and test all hardware prior to installation. Since Arreya is agnostic, it works with most hardware. As a Chrome Partner, Arreya recommends Chrome devices because they provide easy integration for most displays, even if you’re seeking touchscreen capabilities.
If you are starting from scratch with digital signage, Arreya is a great fit. Our technical support team can assist you in finding the best hardware for the exact scenario you are hoping to create, and even test it so you know it will work.
- Multi-screen display side by side with portrait positioning
- Multi-screen display side by side with landscape positioning
- Multi-screen stacked on top with landscape positioning
- Multi-screen stacked on top with portrait positioning
- Five or more screens tiled on one wall
- Double Screens with the bottom tablet being a touchscreen that controls the larger screen
Any of these scenarios can become complex if you don’t research the capabilities of the screens that you are buying before you make the purchase. A commercial grade TV screen or computer monitor will more likely provide options to sync up the display with ease, but make sure the ones you buy are meant for 24/7 commercial installations.
Displays not functioning correctly or completely dark can affect your sales or visitor experience. Time is money – especially when you are paying a company for tech support or trouble shooting. Purchasing the wrong hardware for your digital signage display may result in adding extra hardware that costs extra money, and may cause more technical problems.
Well planned multi-screen displays can save money, time and the end result will be an amazing dynamic experience for your audience.
At Arreya, we are happy to help you find the best digital signage hardware for the display you are planning, even if you choose to shop prices for the hardware and purchase it from a different supplier. In the end, we want you to have the best possible experience with our software.
