Can I replace a conventional noticeboard?

Yes, a signage system is perfect for replacing a conventional noticeboard especially if they are allowed to get like the above image where half the notices are hidden under newer ones.

“If you run a busy club or other public space why not put a big screen up on the wall and charge people to put notices on it? Flyers and leaflets that have been scanned look fine on a big screen”

Signage and noticeboard systems slot into a couple of broad categories that are either advertising or messages. Or a mixture of both.

Staff Noticeboards

Displaying messages on screens

Digital signage isn’t all about showing adverts or product videos on huge screens outside supermarkets or on the side of bus stops. Many people use it simply to show messages.

Message display systems are ideal for the office, factory, school, waiting rooms etc as an old style cork noticeboard can easily be converted into an electronic one.

“No need to look for drawing pins or sticky tape when you need to put a notice up!”

Hospitals and GP surgeries can use digital signage to display patient and staff information along with the news to give people something to read while waiting.

Factories can use it for showing messages to staff about production requirements or parts shortages etc.


Signage advertising Systems

An advertising system might typically be used in a retail environment and can be used to show advertising in the form of static pages or promotional product videos. You have probably seen large outdoor screens at the entrance to supermarkets showing adverts for products.

Static advertising pages can be produced very quickly with our system editor and pages can be enhanced with the easy to apply built in animation effects. This will be a lot cheaper and easier to put together if you are on a budget than having an advertising video made.

Little photography light tents make taking small product photographs very easy and images taken with a modern smartphone will be perfectly good enough for displaying on a signage screen if you put a little effort into them. There are a multitude of apps available for smartphones that allow you to adjust the brightness and contrast etc of phone photographs.

Mixed signage use

Our multi zone system is perfect for mixed use as multiple messages can be left on display all at the same time in different areas or zones of the screen. You might have a large central display area for your own messages and charge local businesses to place advertisements in other areas of the screen if you own a public place such as a cafe or sports centre.

Multizone digital signage is the closest you can get to an old style noticeboard or cork board. If you operate a big factory or office it’s a lot easier to send a message page to a digital screen than to walk around the building pinning up notices.

Being able to view different messages at the same time is far better than having to wait for half a dozen other pages to cycle around to get to the one that caught your attention a few minutes earlier.
