Here are the 3 main elements you'll need to build your digital signage project:
The main definition is:
Digital signage is a form of electronic display for presenting information, advertisements and other messages. Digital signage (such as LCD, LED, plasma or projected images) is found in public and private environments, such as stores, hotels, restaurants and businesses. They are used as a network of electronic displays for advertising, information, entertainment and merchandising.

If you have a project of digital signage or you want to start: you need a screen. The popular choice for companies is a professional display, but you can also opt for other options that suit your project, as long as it has an HDMI port.
It's a compact PC that connects to your screen, enabling content distribution and control across all screens. It's the thing that link your screen to internet and therefore your content.
Usually, the player is connected to the monitor via an HDMI cable and plugged into a power outlet. You'll use a dashboard to access and manage your content, like in Comeen Play. Some screens, like Samsung's, embed the player directly inside.
Some players store content "locally" on the device/player itself, just like a hard drive, so there is no need for an Internet connection. For us, we recommend using a ChromeOS digital signage player, and we've even written an article on its advantages.
A content management system is a management and configuration platform (CMS). It's the back-end through which you control the content that appears on your screens.
Comeen Play, is our Enterprise-Grade digital signage solution (in case we didn't mentioned it before) and it's a little more advanced than that.
You have your own user-friendly dashboard and you can create playlists with the content of your choice, you can add several users from your company to manage the content too, you have a really complete account.
