The Appeal of Digital Signage

A recent article by Digital Signage Today features an eye-opening infographic that illustrates just how effective digital signage is at reaching audiences in nearly any location. Businesses and organizations of all types — including healthcare, education and government — can see the many ways that digital signage communicates messages related to:

  • Marketing
  • Education
  • Wayfinding
  • Targeted ads
  • Point of Service

Among the noteworthy statistics, 70 percent of Americans are exposed to place-based video every month. The U.S. remains the largest global market, while China is the fastest growing. Read the complete article.

In Healthcare Environments, Cisco’s Digital Media Suite Delivers

In healthcare settings, digital signage solidifies branding, delivers wayfinding content as a campus directory, and provides a means for alert notification.

In bringing digital signage to the Tampa, Fla.-based Moffitt Cancer Center, AV leader AVI-SPL teamed with Cisco for their Digital Media Suite (DMS). In turn, Moffitt was provided with a state-of-the-art solution that’s geared towards current and future needs.

“Digital signage allows Moffitt to share content on the main campus and also over the network to our satellite offices and affiliates around the state,” says John Maass, manager of conferencing technology at Moffitt.

The Cisco DMS at Moffitt includes Show and Share, which Moffitt has customized as “Moffitt on Demand.” This You Tube-style portal delivers a user-friendly interface, easily allowing the IT team to control content and provide valuable information to patients and staff members.

In addition, Cisco’s MXE3500 (Media Experience Engine) serves as a key building block for the use of video throughout the organization. It frees IT teams from the time-consuming and manual process of transcoding from one format to another using a user-friendly, intuitive workflow.

As examples:

  • Moffitt has a large library of archived videos. The MXE3500 makes it very easy to show these videos on any device without having to go through a manual transcoding of each file.
  • MXE3500 has several post-production features that make it easy to brand videos with Moffitt’s branding.  It enables Moffitt to specify templates for watermarks, trailers, bumpers, and captions for all video being shown on signs or online.

“The feedback has been nothing short of extraordinary,” says Maass. “Many of our patients have stated that they’ve been waiting for this to happen at Moffitt for some time.”
