Software & Signage

Digital signage software is facing major upheaval.

All major display manufacturers now offer agnostic software platforms – from Samsung’s VXT (launched recently at ISE 2024) to Wave from PPDS.

To make digital signage a B2B mass market, the industry must break out of the silo. Samsung is following its strategy with consistency, and VXT has the potential to become a game changer. By providing a complete ecosystem for digital signage along with an app store, it allows users to upgrade, update and enrich their solutions during their lifecycle – and opens up digital signage to other areas of AV.  

These developments are putting pressure on the established software players. But where else can innovation take place? We will seek the answers in specific panels, structuring the status quo and working out the killer functions and architecture for future-proof digital signage software.

Software & Signage is also the theme of the new invidis Yearbook. DSS Europe attendees will be the first to get their hands on this industry bible, which is published on Day 1 of the Summit.

And the Summit also sees the launch of invidis Software Compass – the first vendor-agnostic digital signage CMS comparison tool. Systems are becoming increasingly similar, making it challenging for non-experts to discern differences. Some factors, however, may still be used to gain advantages, for example in the areas of sustainability, multi-platform support or IT security.

Sessions in the Software & Signage stream include:

  • The New Software Agenda
  • Samsung VXT and impact on DS Industry / The platform economy
  • Choosing the best software: Launch of the invidis Digital Signage Software Compass
  • Redefining programming: GenAI & Analytic AI in software
  • Missing standards – “Zoo of DS Software”: CMS, RDM, OS
  • Samsung VXT in Practice
  • How B2B IoT, AI and Dashboarding will impact Digital Signage with best practice from Sky
  • Business models: Distribution & buying software
  • The future of software: streaming or composer

While many hardware categories are becoming commoditized, software is the new differentiator. But the market is overcrowded with 1.000s of digital signage CMS solutions, Digital Experience Platforms (DXP) are disrupting the digital signage market and Remote Device Management (RDM) solutions are a new necessity for business critical signage.

This year’s DSSE will revolve around software and platforms. Invidis will host various sessions and panels covering a breadth of software related topics. In addition invidis will also launch the digital signage compass – an industry first independent software comparison. Learn USP’s of the leading software providers such as in the areas of sustainability, multi-platform support or IT security.
