Digitimes Research: Samsung offers smart digital signage

Ricky Tu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei 0

Samsung Electronics launched seven 32- to 55-inch smart digital signage solutions with thicknesses of 29.9mm and bezel sizes of 6.9mm in the second half of 2016, equipped with in-house-developed Samsung Smart Signage Platform and Tizen operating system, according to Digitimes Research.

While conventional digital signage basically displays information and advertising content only, smart digital signage is interactive with users and enables remote system management via touch and sensing functions as well as wireless Internet connection, Digitimes Research indicated.

Samsung Display, Samsung Electronics' affiliate, has developed 110-inch Ultra HD waterproof and dustproof display panels for digital signage.

Although Windows is currently the dominant operating system for digital signage due to advantages of compatibility with Windows-based IT devices and complete software development kit, Samsung Electronics has extended Linux-based Tizen from smartphones to digital signage.
