SignCloud technology enables you to display a sequence of digital signage content on an unlimited number of devices. It gives you full remote control, using a web-based administration interface.

Our digital signage player is installed on thousands of Android devices around the world and we collectively displays over 3 billion videos and images every year.

SignCloud is a low-cost and lightweight platform, which provides advanced targeting, interactivity and reporting features.
