4 min read

It is no secret that technology keeps evolving at an unprecedented rate, impacting and changing the world around us. For instance, how businesses and institutions handle communication has changed dramatically over the past few years. Why, you might wonder? Well, for starters, displays are replacing the traditional pinboards. This makes sharing information much easier as you no longer have to deal with the hassle of printed paper advertising. With the right signage solution, handling content becomes much easier. 


When starting a digital signage project, you might bump into challenges about implementing the project, such as getting buy-in from your colleagues. Today's blog will equip you with the right answers, debunking the most common 5 myths related to digital signage and MagicINFO.   


Keep reading to debunk the following myths: 


Myth no. 1: Digital Signage Requires an Expensive Investment 


Think digital signage and you might visualize enormous billboards with eye-popping LED graphics. Yes, acquiring those can be a hefty investment. But to realize your digital signage project, you don't always need to break the bank; it's as easy as figuring out your business needs. From simple, cost-effective solutions to elaborate displays, there's a signage solution tailor-made for every budget and goal. 


If you're seeking affordability, consider purchasing our affordable MagicINFO Lite Cloud subscription, which can be paid monthly or annually. With its robust features and budget-friendly plans, the Lite version of the MagicINFO Cloud is a testament to the fact that digital signage can be both high-quality and cost-effective. 

Myth no. 2: Digital Signage is Difficult to Manage and Time-consuming


This could not be further away from the truth! Upon choosing a Premium MagicINFO license or cloud subscription, you can make full use of the Samsung Remote Management solution, enabling you to control your digital signage installation from anywhere in the world. In time, this will save you costs because there is no need for having someone physically manage the displays, even in the case of a strange error. Also, you can be more sustainable since you won't be incurring any costs from the trip back and forth to the displays' location. 


Another powerful argument to get your team invested in your digital signage project idea and debunk this myth is that you can always receive training based on your needs.

Myth no. 3: Digital Signage is Not Properly Secured

Further fortifying this security fortress, MagicINFO offers the possibility to limit users' access, only allowing them to work with the features that are needed.

For instance, you could restrict the marketing department to only have access to creating and publishing content, and your IT engineers to only have access to server and device settings.
