The Audio-Visual (AV) industry has a lot to expand with the increased usage of digital signage. The market is infinite because there’s probably no sector that has not adapted to digital signage in some shape or form. Whether it is education, retail, corporate, leisure or healthcare, electronic signage is a part of every industry.
When considering an LED sign investment, the first thought that comes to mind is the hardware needed: displays, media players, all the way through to small items such as mounts. In terms of software, content management systems and scheduling software is taken into account. What most people fail to consider are the software tools that help in creating unique and impactful content; thereby making digital signage and exciting endeavor.
What differentiates creation software?
When there is a lack of creation software, LED screen content managers end up using software such as PowerPoint. This is fine to an extent since PowerPoint allows the display of images, video, text and charts. However, the content remains static. Some content managers have spent a large amount of finance on one of few content creation packages currently available in the market. But these are quite challenging to use due to high technicalities that require training. Few LED sign investors prefer to outsource their content design, but this has limitations such as lower turnaround times and making a change to the content on the go is very restricted.
Creation software is the perfect solution for all these problems. Easy-to-use creation software enables users to create brilliant signage content with the inclusion of live video streaming, rich HTML content, and also flexible means of updating content. LED Craft Inc promotes a couple of easy-to-use software that helps users create content so as to provide our customers with the optimum benefits of their investment.
Creation Software brings about a change
Until now, digital signage investors made the most of their campaigns by using existing solutions for content creation and design. But with the introduction of latest easy-to-use creation tools, the market will once again see a drastic change.
How will the market change? Creation software for digital signage aims to develop content in a way where signs are brought to life without any restrictions. The software is also easy-to-learn, fast to deploy and allows users to create content that can be displayed or streamed onto several displays.
Following characteristics make up successful creation software:
- Flexibility by offering several options for layouts and templates
- Unique and tailor made backgrounds
- Well designed crawls
- Tickers and transitions that can be included in live streaming of videos
These tools allow users to make the maximum use of their LED sign investment. As an added bonus, software vendors can offer training and support for users who are cautious about learning a new program. When creation software booms in the near future, LED sign users will wonder how on earth they survived without it!
