Cloud-Based Digital Signage FAQs

Digital signage is a big investment for a lot of businesses, schools, and hospital systems. We know that researching the right solution is important, so that’s why we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about cloud-based digital signage software: 


  • How does the software licensing system work?

Most cloud-based signage companies price their software on a  license-per-media player structure. This allows customers to have unique content on each digital signage display. If the same content is to be displayed on multiple displays, only one license and one player is required. Some digital signage companies offer bulk licenses, however these offerings are normally accompanied by software with limited features.
  • How many users are usually allowed per account?

Digital signage software companies provide user accounts per tier of your subscription. These tiers are usually based on a professional or enterprise subscription. At, you can have unlimited users per account. This comes in handy for segmenting your marketing, administration, and IT staff’s usage of the platform.
  • Can different users have access to different things?
