The importance of mounting in digital signage
With touch, gesture and high quality video now available along the digital signage spectrum, it’s no surprise everyone wants to utilise it somehow. Seen as an interactive marketing must for the likes of retail and an important updated info hub for the likes of large offices and educational buildings, the display can be huge videowalls or just a single screen display but have you taken into account how you will mount this for optimum usage? It may not seem like the most exciting part of the system but here are a few areas that should really have your attention when it comes to mounts and brackets:
Compatibility: Many mount manufacturers, including Peerless AV, work closely with screen manufacturers to make sure displays are compatible, but always make sure you check before a deadline.
Ease of installation: Installation times can be reduced if screen spacers and measurements have already been calculated for the installer. This can make sure your videowall is straight and symmetrical without the hassle of the maths.
Post-installation adjustment: Many mount manufacturers are aware that more often than not, digital signage may be moved or adjusted for different campaigns. This is why you should make sure the brackets you choose are to re-align and lock back together when movement is necessary.
Safety: When it is the general public’s attention you are trying to receive, their safety is in your hands too. Make sure your manufacturer and installer is fully accredited and that all tests are carried out before your display is made public.
New opportunities: With digital signage and its applications constantly evolving, look into how to future proof your display. Many manufacturers are coming up with new designs and content, so if you need help deciding on what is best for your application, please do not hesitate to contact us.
