1. What is digital signage?

Digital signage consists of electronic displays or screens (such as LCD, LED, plasma or projection) to deliver entertainment, information and/or advertisement in public or private spaces, outside of home.

Digital signage goes by many names; digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising, digital communications networks, place-based media, digital merchandising and more.

The advantage of digital signage over traditional static signs is the content can be customized and targeted to specific locations and audiences and updated almost instantly. Content can be presented as dynamic animation and graphics as well as full motion video and sound.

2. Why is it important to update content on a digital signage network?

Engaging, visually-interesting content is the most important component in an effective digital signage system. The challenge is keeping the content updated and fresh. Viewers won’t respond favorably to stale content.

Many organizations make a significant investment in software and deploying the technology. What many of these systems fail to recognize is that it’s attention-grabbing, relevant content – updated on a consistent and frequent basis – that delivers results.

6. Can I buy individual segments rather than the package?

Not at this time. We believe the way to make our segments affordable is to offer them as a package. Each video-based package (Green Tips and Travel Tips) contains 10 unique tips in both 30 second and 15 second versions, for a total of 20 tips.  The graphic-based Fun Facts package contains 10 unique tips that are all 15 seconds.  Providing the tips as a package provides a great value.

7. What formats are available?

All segments are produced 16×9 and are available in HD. Formats available include: H.264, WMV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and more. Don’t see the format you need? Contact us.

9. What is the licensing agreement for the Short Bites Media segments?

We offer a two-year license for virtually unlimited use. You may run the Short Bites segments as often as you like, on an unlimited number of screens in your digital signage system over the two-year period.

However, the segments and the elements within our segments cannot be sold as a stock element or part of any other content library or collection. The license covers one digital signage system and may not be shared with any other company or affiliate systems.
