System-on-Chip (SoC) Technology is the Future of Digital Signage

The first ever smart signage displays ran on the Android operating system and were spotted at trade shows dating back to 2011. In 2013, Samsung announced the first operating system dedicated solely to digital signage called the Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSSP). LG followed in 2014 with the WebOS platform.

These displays were the first commercial digital signage smart displays that did not require an additional PC or media player to play the content. Since that time, SoC technology for digital signage has rapidly increased in usage, performance, and security.

Benefits of System on Chip

Easy to Install

Plug and play deployment makes everything easier. All you need is electricity and an internet connection.

Cheap to Maintain

SoCs remove multiple points of failure and have lower failure rates.

Less Energy Consumption

Power consumption rates can be 80% lower compared to regular digital signage deployments.

Fully Featured

Multizone, proof-of-play, reporting, live streaming. Everything that is needed for 95% of digital signage installations.

What is the current problem?

The biggest challenge is that each vendor (Samsung, Lg, etc.) creates and maintains their own SoC platforms with multiple versions and firmwares.

Brand Operation System Versions Supported
Samsung       Samsung Smart Signage     SSSP2, SSSP3, SSSP4 - Tizen    
LG webOS webOS 1, webOS 2, webOS 3    
Philips Android 4.4.1 - 5.1    

In order to solve this issue we created one universal platform - signageOS. Using signageOS' native applications for every platform easily integrate and manage your devices in one unified method.
