Why Digital Displays are Advertising Powerhouses & How to Get One Working for You

You Can’t Argue with the Numbers It’s a proven fact that there is no more powerful way to advertise your business and services than with signage super-charged with a digital display. These signs go by many different names and acronyms:  Digital Display, Digital Signage, Electronic Message Center (EMC), Digital Message Center (DMC), and LED Display Signs, just to name a few, and they have various applications both indoors and outdoors, but one thing remains consistent. In a world of online advertising and information overload, these signs have risen to an exceptional challenge. They have become the most visually arresting, direct, targetable, flexible, and easily updatable method of communicating your message and disseminating your brand while effectively competing with all the visual noise created by the modern media assault. Digital signage is defined as any type of digital display – typically an LED, LCD, or plasma screen – connected to a computer or playback device.

Having worked with Brad and co-owner Kevin Burns on the neon projecting Walrus sign, just doors down on E Main Street from their new downtown venue, it was already obvious that they understood the power of great custom signs. The partners came prepared with a well-planned design and a vision of twinkling stars for the old Ray’s Fish Market pole sign. Normally twinkling would not be allowed by code in Columbus, but the Downtown Commission can override code if they deem it to be appropriate for the growth and culture of downtown Columbus. With the first hurdle crossed, a Certificate of Approval in hand, DāNite Sign Company focused on the mechanical task of twinkling. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star The first LED flash controller that was installed for the stars blinked far too fast, so one of the techs came up with a creative solution… turn signals. They hooked up the individual stars to the automobile controller for a left turn signal. While that worked great, it was still a tad too fast. The hunt was back on for a flash speed that Brad and Kevin felt would be safe for drivers, and further adjustable if necessary. Finally it was found in a 10-channel digital lighting system where the speed is controlled for each individual channel by the turn of a screwdriver. Problem solved! Below was the sign with...
