What is Digital Signage?
A short definition is, “any size screen displaying any type of content for any reason”.
Digital Signage is a powerful way to interact with potential clients and customers or to keep employees and visitors up to date with a more unified experience. By using well designed and structured content, you can increase the viewing time to get your message across. From timed promotions to seasonal offers, Signagelive will enable you to make the most of your digital signage and keep the customer engaged for longer and keep members of staff up to date with things related to the workplace.
Signagelive focuses on creating the best CMS experience for managing your digital signage remotely via the cloud. They partner with many accredited resellers globally to provide you with everything you need. From hardware and software, all the way to a full turn-key solution delivered and managed for you. Part of their service includes introducing you to the reseller that fits your requirements best.
With the PosterMyWall and Signagelive integration, creating a steady stream of content for your digital displays becomes a streamlined and efficient process.
Here’s how you can create and use your own digital signage ad on your screens in no time:
Select and Customize a Template
First things first, you will need to create your design on PosterMyWall. This can be done easily by customizing a template. Depending on what type of content you require, you can start browsing our Gallery, check out all the categories we offer and from there find the videos that best suit your interest. Once you find your category, click and browse through it. If you’re looking for videos, you can filter the search to only display videos, or even limit to to just digital display videos (either 9:16 or 16:9).
Once you find a template of your liking, customize it by adding your details, images and video, and save it. It’s super easy and fun with our user friendly tools. Make sure the video or image size is appropriate for digital displays. This means it should be either 9:16 or 16:9.
You will need to purchase the video, or image to get a high quality finished product. The video download costs 14.95 USD and an image (photo quality) download is for 2.99 USD. You do not need to purchase a poster quality download for digital displays.

Your design is now ready. Now it needs to be downloaded to your device. Just purchase the download, and wait for the high quality image or video to generate. It will get generated within 10 minutes.
