Digital signage is a form of electronic display that shows information, advertising and other messages. Digital signs (such as LCD, LED, and plasma displays, and projected images) can be found in public and private environments such as retail stores and corporate buildings. Nowadays digital signage plays a vital role in our industry as it is replacing traditional printed catalogs, menus and product listings in restaurants, shopping centers, and other community places.

Most of the time people use a USB flash drive to feed individual screens, to display the desired media and, whenever they have to update the media, they manually update the contents of the USB flash drive and plug it back in. This can be very inconvenient when managing a large number of displays and especially when you have to manage displays at multiple locations. That’s where XIBO can help manage all of your digital displays with a centralized media management system equipped with scheduling and other features. With XIBO you can keep all your digital displays up to date automatically.
