|Who we are：
||The Digital Signage Special Interest Group (DS SIG) was officially established in 2008 with support from the Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, and is a private organization of manufacturers who voluntarily participate for a common development objective.|
||To assist businesses in the development of digital signage and boost their international competitiveness. |
||To encourage the active development of new products, new technologies and innovative application services through inter-industry collaboration and integration of panel, display and industrial computer makers, digital content providers, system integrators and advertising media, and assist businesses in understanding development trends in international standards and making the international market their ultimate sales target.|
Digital Signage (DS) has become an emerging marketing platform and a competing tool for media and the industrial & commercial corporations. With its rising operation efficiency and declining unit price, the compound annual growth rate for global digital signage market from 2011 to 2013 is projected to stand above 25%.
In terms of application, digital signage consists of two main categories: outdoor digital signage and indoor digital signage. Indoor digital signage, among the two categories, features broad application coverage, ranging from airport, exhibition hall, Mass Rapid Transit, warehouse stores, hotels, convenience stores and department stores. In light of its broad application coverage, indoor digital signage will see higher development potential in the upcoming years. With surging integrated system capacities, declining prices of large-scale LCD and PDP panels, as well as the growing number of innovation in operating and marketing modes by manufacturers, information and communication technology (ICT) vendors may anticipate digital signage as the next blockbuster product.
Under the tutelage of Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwanese ICT vendors formally established the Digital Signage Special Interest Group (DS SIG). DS SIG aims to develop new services of integrated application via trans-industrial integration and multi-disciplinary collaboration among LCD panel/monitor makers, industrial computer makers, digital content providers, system integrators and advertising media in Taiwan. Hence, Taiwan ICT players can explore another “blue ocean” market, which may contribute to a blossoming signage industry.
To fuel the advances in digital signage industry, DS SIG has been hosting the annual Digital Signage Forum from 2009 during the COMPUTEX Taipei exhibition, the veritably grandest digital signage-centered forum during the COMPUTEX Taipei exhibition. What’s more, this year DS SIG further scales up the forum and will stage the「Digital Signage Forum 2011」 powered by industrial representatives, research institutes and international organizations from both domestic and abroad. The forum is scheduled to take place at Room 102, Taipei International Convention Center on Friday morning, June 3, 2011. Miss no fantastic speeches, and anyone who is interested is welcome to participate.
