Content, Command and Control

An LED screen is just a portion of the complete digital display system. In order to have your LED screen display the content you want, when you want it, you need a video source (typically a player computer), LED control system, and content management system (CMS) software.  As system integrators, Ad Art has searched high and low to find a “perfect combination” of appropriate 3rd party products that exceed the needs of most use cases. In addition, Ad Art has developed proprietary computer system images that provide stable, reliable playback of content and allow for secure remote support. See below diagram of a typical outdoor LED sign system complete with control equipment and CMS software:

As system integrators, Ad Art is able to specify, test, and validate any product from any vendor in order to custom design an LED control system. However, Ad Art has chosen particular companies as standard, approved vendors because of the value their products provide. This allows Ad Art to streamline a cost effective solution for most use cases. Some supported vendors are:

Meeting the challenge of constantly changing technology

It is not an easy undertaking to maintain computer systems that keep up with the latest display technologies. Keeping up with operating system updates, hardware driver versions, security patches and application releases is a sustained effort. Compatibility issues, security threats, and software bugs are constantly undermining mission critical performance, stability and reliability. Fortunately, Ad Art has on staff computer electronics experts that continually meet these challenges with a systematic and effective process. This ensures that computer systems provided by Ad Art are trusted to deliver your content, and only your content, as expected.

Computer Image Features:

  • Computers are designed to operate as “embedded devices” instead of PCs operated by human end users
  • Rigorous configuring and testing is performed for each image to ensure compatibility with all system components
  • Operating systems and BIOS are “hardened” for security reasons, so only necessary services are activated
  • All content and remote support network traffic is encrypted
  • Remote monitoring and support tools are included to program, configure, and maintain LED displays
