The Cloud Signage digital signage platform is able to control and manage hundreds or thousands of screens.
simplicity of our solution is at the core
How it Works?
Like other digital signage systems, the CLOUD DISPLAY system consists of three basic components working together. The end user designs the content on the graphic user interface, the app.cloudsignage.io. When creating the editor we focused on three things: simplicity, effectiveness, and fast operation. It is as easy to use as MS PPt. Based on our experience, we can say that with basic IT skills 2 or 3 hours of training is enough to master the use of it.
The server is responsible for storing the ready made contents in loops and playlists. It stores and synchronises these loops with the player. When creating the loops it is possible to integrate the information coming from sensors (for example if there are products on the shelves, when the customers take a product off the shelf, the screen can show product-specific information – for example a short video – with the help of implemented sensors). It helps to create more efficient targeting and makes the customer experience memorable.
The player sends the contents to the screens and stores the playlists, loops and other logics needed to edit the previously determined contents. It communicates with the server, but if the connection is lost it will play the preset contents on the screens.

Some useful questions
Before you buy a Digital Signage system
Digital signage is a great tool for communications, but shopping for the right software to power your system can be daunting. Here are some tips to get the conversation started so you can choose the best content management software for your needs:
Workflows are different on campus and in an office. Ask for information whether the software can meet your communication demands.
Desktop software limits you to a single computer, while web-based software lets anyone in your organization with browser access and a password to post, manage
and schedule messages.
Not everyone is a graphic designer. Make sure your software has easy design and scheduling tools, as well as good-looking templates so people can create
beautiful messages quickly and easily.
A lot of what you’ll want on screen is already in another system. Make sure it can easily import event schedules, weather, news, Excel, dashboards, social media,
webpages and other data you already use
Touchscreens are a great way to engage your audience, and they give you more real estate for your messages. Make sure your software lets you publish interactive
content, like way-finding.
Your audience won’t always be in front of your big screens, so your software should be able to publish to desktops, smartphones, websites and other BYOD devices so people don’t miss your messages.
Your software should work for a single screen or enterprise-wide messaging across the globe. Make sure you can add media players and software users without hitting technical or licensing snags.
Severe weather, safety alerts and other emergency notifications need to override scheduled playlists at the touch of a button. Ask if the system is CAP-compliant, so CAP triggers can automatically send alerts.
You may already have hardware, or you might need the whole package. Ask vendors if they offer bundled solutions, software-only sales, cloud-based subscriptions, etc.
Does the software vendor offer training? How about design services or consulting? Be sure you understand how often the software is updated and what kind of technical support you get with your software purchase.
