AMX has announced a total cost of ownership (TCO) calculator for digital signage installations. According to AMS, it is “the first such tool in the digital signage industry lets buyers compare digital signage solutions and evaluate costs, both fixed and recurring.”

The TCO calculator also serves as an education vehicle introducing new buyers to the factors involved in digital signage deployments. AMX will be demonstrating the TCO calculator at Almo’s E4 AV Tour December 15 in New York City.

By simply inputting the features of two different signage products, the TCO calculator generates a cost comparison enabling potential buyers to make informed purchase decisions. Users can compare factors including buying versus monthly subscription service, software fees, maintenance, electricity costs, period of operation and size of deployment.

The TCO calculator was created with input from industry experts such as InfoComm Academy Faculty Instructor and leading digital signage consultant Lyle Bunn. It introduces potential buyers to aspects of a deployment that they may not have contemplated. For example, companies must consider the alternatives of purchasing the hardware or a lease-like monthly subscription solution. Software cost and fees are assessed. And maintenance considerations are evaluated through noting the construction of the hardware, namely whether the solution is designed with solid state parts or moving parts. Moving parts, like a fan, may require repair or replacement during the deployment period.

The TCO calculator even analyzes environmental impact of players and employs wattage information to calculate electricity usage by location (state).

AMX is making the digital signage TCO calculator available free for any organization who wishes to upload it to their Website. To learn more about or use the total cost of ownership calculator, please visit
