Philips Public Signage leads the field in the public signage sector with the most wideranging interactive multi-user touch displays.

With the Multi-User Touch Series we are ready for the future.”
Interactive Retail Experience
In today’s digital signage market, ROI can no longer be based only on the cost of digital signs versus static printed signs. Digital signage must add value and drive additional return. So what exactly does that additional return look like? It comes from one major feature: interactivity. Interactive digital signage represents a great shift in the thought process that goes on behind the way consumers shop.
There is a big difference between watching and participating. Traditional media most often treated the consumer almost like an observer. But with the use of interactive displays the shopping experience is shifting from one-way communication to two-way communication, whereat the consumer feels more engaged. And this is one of the important criteria to meet while the expectations of the independent and well-informed consumer are growing.Philips 55” Multi-User Touch Display & Table BDT5530EM.
