Black Box Corporation, a provider of voice services, data services, and IT product solutions, has announced the launch of an on-line video aimed at educating businesses on the basics of digital signage, including how to choose media players for streaming content and RSS feeds.
The video, titled “An Introduction to Digital Signage” and part of the Company’s ongoing “Tips for Techs” series, begins as a “video white paper,” explaining why so many industries are embracing digital signage as a way to market and disseminate information in high-traffic areas. The video then discusses media players and the other components of digital signage deployments, from simple to complex, and how to choose a system according to one’s needs and budget.

Digital signage is an economical way for every company to effectively reach and message their audience. It’s perfect for lobbies, checkouts, restaurants, trade shows, and elsewhere,” he said.
Companies interested in digital signage can also visit Black Box’s microsite, which is devoted to helping organizations of any size understand, plan, and deploy digital signage.
