The Japanese professional display manufacturer iiyama has signed an exclusive agreement with Catalan start-up nsign.tv to incorporate the nsign.tv software into its displays. Thanks to this international homologation, all the nsign.tv platform features will ship with all the iiyama digital signage displays sizes ranging from 43 to 86 inches.
The post-pandemic era is accelerating digitalization processes, among them communication in physical spaces, that is seeing a swift move from paper to digital. This alliance answers both companies desire to offer a differential value proposition in the digitalization of physical spaces, a fast-growing market that is expected to see further growth in the coming years. According to the latest study by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the digital signage market is expected to grow by 10%, reaching a 34.670 million USD market value by 2022.
The new integrated solution, apart from getting rid of the need to use external players, allows, amongst its many benefits, the segmentation of the screen in different areas to improve display productivity, connecting two or more displays to create video walls, menu boards or mega banners to display WOW effects, synchronizing content without the need of cables or installations, thereby reducing installation costs, and accelerating project implementation.
