In the fast paced world of digital signage, advances in technology happen at quite a pace. Recent trends include major improvements in the screen market - with much sleeker screens now available that increasingly looking like they 'belong' in an environment. The Yap! team keep at the forefront of the curve, with our team always seeking industry 'firsts' or new products to take to our clients. When needed our team can 'deconstruct' existing digital signage to ensure the most modern, up to date technology is used.
We're noticing that the current trend is to align the overall look and feel of touchscreens. With well designed framing or housings digital signage can go beyond the typical 'rectangular' screen. Think multi-shaped - such as circle, square, curved - with framing made out of glass, brass and everything in between! Let's face it, a good-looking screen will definitely add to the general aesthetics of a location and a few examples of how this has been used dramatically are shown below:
- projection mapping at St Louis Union
- curved digital signage at Piccadilly Lights in London
- brass finished framing and curved video wall at Yagan Square, Perth
Sometimes it's not the technology that dictates a digital signage upgrade. At the Perth Airport site on the key trunk road in and out of the airport, the ongoing redevelopment of the Airport precinct required the existing digital sign to be extended out to cater for transport network upgrades. When roads need to widen or traffic flows altered, that is a major project as in the APN sign that Yap!digital widened in recent times. The digital tiles were removed and reinstated as part of the project.
