What is interactive and dynamic digital signage?
Interactive digital signage is a device that allows the user to exercise control over the display content and input their own information or transaction. Interactive digital signage has active input device like keyboard, touch screen, push buttons or 3D sensors that allow the user to interface with the system. Not all digital signage is interactive, nor does it need to be. Customer service and information signage has a huge upside for dynamic and interactive features. Dynamic and smart digital signage refers to the capability to continuously change the content on the same signage display, yet does not necessarily require interactivity.
What is 3D digital wayfinding?
The history of digital wayfinding is identical to digital signage itself. During the 1970s the marketplace started to deploy digital signs. Some of these signs showed customers the way to a nearby business. Indoors, these signs could be used to point out a retail shop, restaurant, restroom among other services and amenities. Modern digital wayfinding includes “in-store GPS” control, virtual advertising, mobile QR code info and social media sharing, among other complex software applications.
