No doubt it is the introduction of flat-panel display systems that is the driving
force for digital signage systems. However, you will soon realize that today there
are many options today when choosing what kind of display device to use. In chapter
2 my intention has been to let the reader get to know the current alternatives and
the possible options for tomorrow.
Plasma and various kinds of LCD and OLED displays are described in detail as well
as the projection display alternatives and more sophisticated options such as laser
and rotating LED systems. Much attention is put on the impressive outdoor LED systems.
Also discussed are display systems, that can replace conventional print media.
There are many more alternatives today than just a few years ago when the bulky cathode
ray tube was more or less the only choice.
