Abstract [en]

Digital signage is an emerging new communication technology. It is expected to play an important role in today’s dynamic world as digital signage displays timely information, while reducing the environmental costs associated with traditional printed signage. The main focus of this thesis is the design, implementation, and evaluation of a digital signage system based on a PC to display web contents (or other dynamic information) on digital displays located at one or more locations.

The system will display information based upon a “playlist” that can be dynamically updated. It avoids the single point of failure of a television (be it analog or IPTV) based system, since each display has an attached processor and local storage containing both the information to be displayed and the local playlist of what is to be displayed. Additionally, the design allows content to be customized to specific local viewers, i.e., the information displayed can be adapted to the user or users currently in front of the display. The granularity of the schedule (i.e., playlist) is much shorter than in existing digital signage systems – leading to a more visually dynamic experience for viewers. On the basis of our evaluation, we strongly believe that this approach to digital signage will displace existing signage systems.

Abstract [sv]

Digital signage en framväxande ny kommunikationsteknik spelar en viktig roll idagens dynamiska värld. Digital signage visar värdefull och aktuell information förutbildning, näringslivsorganisationer och är viktigt för samhället, eftersom det ger både ettsätt att ge aktuell information och minska de miljömässiga kostnaderna i samband medtraditionella tryckta skyltar. Tyngdpunkten i denna avhandling är att designa, implementeraoch utvärdera en digital signage system baserat på en PC för att visa webb-innehåll (ellerannan dynamisk information) om digitala displayer som finns på en eller flera platser.Systemet kommer att generera värdefull dynamisk information i rätt tid till en grupp avolika tittare. Svarstiden för att visa innehållet på den digitala displayen är mycket snabbjämfört med andra skyltsystem. På grundval av vår utvärdering, tror vi starkt att den kanersätta det finns skyltsystem på marknaden.
