06 May UPGRADING DIGITAL SIGNAGE
Upgrading to Newer Digital Technology
JCDecaux (JCD) are a leading light in global utilisation of LED/LCD technology. As an early adopter into the technology, the recognition that the technology of a few years ago has been dramatically superseded initiated an upgrade at their Perth Transport Authority (PTA) Tunnel location in the main city railway station. The screens, originally placed by APN Outdoor, were around 5 years old and Yap!digital were commissioned to update JCD’s existing screens to 2.5mm LED screens.
This investment in new screen seems logical and a wise investment given that the projections for Perth’s city based population will grow up to $2.2m by 2031. Population growth will see a 33% increase in personal travel from 5.8 to 7.7 million trips per day (ie cars, public transport, walking and cycling). The longer term city with 3.5 million people could see a further 59% increase in rail passenger travel to 12.25 million trips per day, or more than double the current level of activity.* All this means greater visibility for the content displayed on the JCDecaux video wall which is great news for advertisers.

Digital signage is also a great way to impress your boss as it has the added benefit of offering creating revenue streams – such as selling advertising space to advertisers. This may apply to a retail complex where there are several other outlets that pay for promotional space on the digital screen ….
