Digital signage is very widely used across the world nowadays. In most cases, it uses technologies like LCD or LED to display digital media like images, videos, restaurant menus, text or web pages.
Nowadays you can find digital signages almost everywhere: public areas, transport vehicles, and planes, museums, stadiums, retail stores, hotels, restaurants and company buildings, etc., to provide directory navigation, exhibitions, marketing, and advertising. Digital Signages are used as a network of electronic displays that are centrally managed and individually addressable for the display of text, video messages for advertising, information, entertainment and merchandising to targeted audiences.
When a digital signage system works, and it works well, it can boost customer or visitor experience by giving timely information when it’s needed and creating an attractive and engaging space to place ads.

Content Planning: Content involves the creation of the dynamic media to be displayed on a screen, and it involves the communication of a message. Depending on the objectives, it may involve advertising, marketing, or entertainment content.

When it comes to choosing the right digital signage hardware, it certainly isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Every business is different, with different goals in mind that they want to achieve with their digital signs. Each has different budgets and content capabilities. And each has vastly different physical spaces to account for.
All of those competing factors, though, shouldn’t overwhelm businesses looking to make the digital signage leap. In fact, instead of viewing that long list of considerations as a head-scratching conundrum, you’d be much better served to use it as the trusty roadmap to help you pick that one-and-only perfect screen.
Here’s our easy-to-follow strategy on how to pick the best digital signage display for your business—and your business only.
Location: It is quite obvious that the first thing to consider when selecting a digital signage display is where you want to put it. It is certainly more than just finding an open wall and throwing a TV on it. You need to think about function and impact. The one true rule of place digital signage is to place it in high-traffic areas where the highest amount of people will be able to see, From wayfinding and directory displays to large-scale screens pushing advertisements.
Size & viewing angles: Clearly “bigger the better” doesn’t applicable when it comes to choosing the size of digital signage. The surrounding environment and functionality will always come first. You don’t want a massive big screen in a small room or a tiny screen when you need people from 10 meters away to be able to see. Here are some tips:
- Standard menu board for a restaurant or a bar usually will choose the size between 43”-55”
- Smaller screens are better for touchscreen kiosks that your consumers will interact with up-close-and-personal.
- Bigger screens are perfect for large wall-mounted digital signage installations that aim to capture an entire room’s attention.
Any display that for close distance viewer, you don’t want to use large-size screens, as they might notice the individual pixels on the image. To avoid that, you’ll probably want to invest in an ultra-high-definition 4K TV that can be viewed super up-close without losing any fidelity. Fortunately, the vast majority of digital signage sold today are capable of 4K resolutions.
Hi Tech Panda provides a full range of sizes to suit all your needs: 24”, 32” 43”, 49”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 86”, 96”.
Viewing angles: should also be accounted for. Typically, TVs should be viewed straight-on or the picture can become distorted. For that reason, you need to either plan for a layout that will minimize wide viewing angles in your space or install multiple displays so viewers always have a direct eye-line to at least one of your TV screens. Generally, commercial displays can be viewed at wider angles than consumer televisions.
Brightness: In most businesses, you’re going to be dealing with very well-lit areas—oftentimes by both by artificial and natural light. This means you’ll need a very bright screen if you want customers to be able to read and take in the content on your displays. This is where the difference between consumer televisions and commercial televisions comes heavily into play. Consumer displays are made for controlled lighting environments such as your living room where lighting is often dimmer, usually range from 150-250 Nits. Commercial displays, on the other hand, are designed for brightly lit areas like office spaces, retail stores, and other commercial buildings, usually range from 300-2000 Nits.
With HiTech Panda, we are able to provide screen with the brightness higher than the industry standard from 2500nit-3000nit.
Price, warranty, and durability: In general, TVs range in cost from a few hundred dollars for a consumer display to a few thousand dollars for a large 4K commercial screen. So it’s best to know your budget and needs inside and out before jumping to a purchase. In most cases, we recommend grabbing a commercial display over a consumer TV as it is built for business settings and uses. We already mentioned the brightness factor. On top of that, they are more durable when used over long periods of time, and they have longer warranties. They also have important features that consumer TVs just don’t come with, such as the ability to be controlled over LAN as well as the ability to schedule being turned on and off. Sure, it may cost you more upfront to buy a commercial display, but it’ll be more cost-effective in the long run and you’ll get much better overall performance. And don’t get too caught up about the SmartTV features that come with a given TV—they’re pretty much irrelevant when it comes to digital signage. Instead, focus on screens that come with a wealth of hardware features that can boost your digital signage performance. As for how long you can expect your screen to last, commercial displays typically have a lifespan of around 100,000 hours at reasonably intensive use. A consumer TV will last from 60,000-100,000 at an average use rate. Choosing the perfect digital signage display—whatever your business’ specific needs maybe—doesn’t have to be rocket science. It just takes a solid game plan built around your company’s physical space, digital signage needs and goals, and budget. Once you’ve nailed those things down, picking the best TV for digital signage won’t be a problem.
