DSF Community at InfoComm 2024Digital Signage Federation Launches First-Ever Digiscape to the Ecosystem and End-User Buyer communities

Warrington, VA, June 6, 2024 – The Digital Signage Federation (DSF), the only independent, non-profit voice of the digital signage industry, is proud to announce the release of its first-ever DigiScape, which will be available for members to access on the DSF Member Portal (https://www.digitalsignagefederation.org/digiscape/ ).

A Comprehensive View of the Digital Signage Ecosystem

The Digiscape provides a one-stop shop for buyers and sellers navigating the digital signage landscape. It offers a searchable directory of all DSF member companies categorized by their role in the ecosystem, including content, hardware, software, installation services, and more – to represent and reflect all aspects of a digital-signage based connected deployment

“The Digiscape is essentially a roadmap of the entire digital signage industry,” said Ryan Cahoy, DSF Chairman and V.P. of Business Development for AUO Display Plus. “Whether you’re starting a new project or looking to upgrade an existing deployment, the DSF Digiscape can connect you with the perfect providers and services to meet your needs. It also includes new more trend-forward products and solutions sets like sensor technology and programmatic platforms required for DOOH and Retail Media Networks.

Organized for Easy Access

The Digiscape is an interactive chart that categorizes companies in the digital signage industry into four user-friendly sections: Hardware, Software, Services, and Other. With the help of Jim Nista of DSF member company Nista Digital Content, the DSF created this visual representation of its membership in each category to provide viewers with a simple, at-a-glance view of the industry’s landscape. This clear categorization allows users to quickly find the specific solutions they require. “The industry is constantly evolving and growing, so it’s important to see a higher view of everything at once,” added Nista.  Many of our ecosystem companies perform or deliver more than one product or service so it allows viewers to understand where cross over exists in experience and solution set.

Member-Reviewed and Benefit-Driven

Following a rigorous pre-production refresh, the Digiscape was reviewed by member companies for accuracy. “The Digiscape is a key benefit of DSF membership,” said Frank Pisano, DSF Treasurer/Membership Committee Chair and CEO of Bluefin International Inc. “It provides a visually compelling way to showcase our membership and the vast capabilities of the digital signage industry.”

Pisano further emphasized the importance of Digiscape participation: “If you play any role in the digital signage ecosystem – from experiential to Out-of-Home to QSR to Retail – you need to be on the Digiscape We forecast it being of greatest value to our end-user buyer community who look to the DSF for guidance and direction so they can make the most informed decisions on who to engage for their projects, adds Pisano

Continuous Growth and Access

The DSF Digiscape is built with JavaScript and HTML5, designed to be responsive for web, mobile and interactive touch screens. Residing on the DSF Member Portal it will be updated quarterly to reflect new members, renewals, and membership upgrades.
