Digital Signage Computers

Computer Based Digital Signage

DS-Z Series digital signage computers are a cost effective way to add digital signs in your business.

DS-Z systems support from 1 to 11  independent displays. You can have the same or different content on each screen and we have options that allow you to extend video up 300′ away if needed.

Why use a Computer?

Using a computer is the most cost effective way to make a digital sign. It also makes it very easy to manage your own media advertising. The Windows based system makes it simple to create your signs and above all, there are no recurring fees as you may find with other digital sign solutions.


How It Works

  1. Simply connect your new or existing TVs or monitors to the multiple video ports on the DS-Z system.
  2. Then, create your media content to be displayed using Microsoft PowerPoint (included) or your own software. The content can be anything from simple text and still images to a fully animated presentation.
  3. Monitor 1 is designated as your ‘Control Monitor’. This is where you will create and control your content.
  4. Then, from the Control Monitor, SEND your content OUT to the desired display(s) with the click of a mouse

Video Connections

DS-Z series systems support, VGA, DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort. So the available connections on your TVs or monitors tells us which of video cards we use in your system. Full details available on the individual system pages.

Extending Video

Extend video and audio up to 300 ft away from the system with optional extenders. See the example below using HDMI extenders. The distance you will get is determined by the type of connections that you have on your content TV’s or monitors.

Extend Video over CAT 5

An example of our HDMI Video Extension Modules is shown here. This allows you to transmit video as well as audio up to 300‘ over CAT 6 network cabling. One or two CAT 6 lines may be required depending on your situation.

A small VEM Transmitter module connects to the video source of the DS system on one side of the module then on the other side the output is CAT 6.

The matching VEM Receiver module located at the content display on the other end receives the CAT6 input, then outputs to the video source on the content display, in this case HDMI.
