Abstract

Signage is transitioning from static analogue signs towards Digital Signage (DS), which introduces a variety of benefits. Among those are remote-maintenance, supporting dynamic content like videos and animations, and the simplification of updating content. However, DS solutions, despite being ubiquitous, are often tailored to specific use-cases, which limits their re-usability and updateability in case of severe changes to their environment. For instance, digital door signs for office spaces may become unusable if the office space is reorganized as storage or seminar rooms. Coping with such changes may result in additional costs since new DS solutions need to be purchased or in-depth changes to the software of the currently deployed DS solution are required. To address these problems we propose the Modularly Operated Digital Signage (MODS) framework, facilitating the dynamic changing of DS functionality in a modular fashion. We present the frameworks modular concept and describe its individual components. Subsequently, we briefly elaborate on the properties of the currently implemented modules. Additionally, we discuss the conducted pre-study to receive a first indicator for the usability of the framework.
