How will Rise Vision support your Android digital signage needs?

Let’s go over some of the benefits Android-powered digital signage has to offer.

Android Digital Signage Cost


Cost is a key reason why Android digital signage is becoming a popular choice. The Android operating system is free and open source which reduces overall licensing costs.

Additionally, smart TVs that come pre-configured with Android make for a simpler and less expensive digital signage system. Most notably, the absence of a stand-alone digital signage media player cuts down hardware costs considerably. Traditional digital signage systems require organizations to purchase sets of displays, media players, and software licenses which can quickly scale up project costs.



Android was originally intended to be a smartphone operating system. However, as each version of the operating system has improved, as well as its ability to service different devices and use cases, Android has proved itself to be a reliable choice as a digital signage operating system.

Due to the intense competition between iOS and Android, both mobile operating systems have become incredibly stable - which is vital for digital signage 24/7 uptime requirements. The added plus for Android users is that integration with Google applications is flawless and provides a seamless user experience.

Android Digital Signage Flexibility


A unique feature of Android digital signage systems is its ability to power digital signage using almost any kind of device. For instance, a simple Android-powered dongle can operate a digital signage display. One could even use a mobile phone, smart TV, or a stand-alone digital signage media player.

Another useful feature of Android is that it can be connected to cloud-based digital signage software by either a WiFi or cellular connection. This makes Android particularly advantageous for remote and outdoor applications.

Before Designing An Android Digital Signage System: Ask An Expert

Android is certainly a tempting solution for digital signage. The price and flexibility alone make it extremely attractive as the core technology of choice for a new digital signage system.

Depending on the application and the operating requirements of the digital signage system, certain digital signage technologies and hardware choices may be better than others. For instance, a smart TV could be a poor choice for a digital signage system that is required to run 24/7. The average smart TV isn’t designed to operate continuously. In other scenarios (at an office front desk for example) it could be the perfect choice.

If you ever have questions on what digital signage technologies your school or organization should choose, please contact us and we’ll be happy to guide you.

Templates Make Life Easy!

After working with thousands of customers over the past three decades, we’ve learned that traditional digital signage can be very time-consuming. Some of our customers were spending up to 16 hours a week creating content and managing their digital signage campaigns.
One way we’ve dropped this workload down from hours to minutes is by creating a library of easy-to-use templates. Whether you need a calendar of upcoming events or a video feed, using Rise Vision templates, you can quickly style, schedule, and activate hundreds of useful digital signage presentations - for any required functionality you can dream up!
Here are a few templates that our customers have found to be very useful:
