Techie Question: Do you need to use a UPS for digital signage?

Coming from an IT background I know how important it is to ensure your system is shut down gracefully otherwise you’ll end up damaging your operating system and application. This is where a UPS may come in handy. UPS stands for Uninterruptible power supply and is used as an emergency power source. It is typically used to protect computers, or equipment in data centres or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption and/or data loss. Depending on the size of the UPS battery they generally provide about 5-10 minutes of power.

So my question to those techies out there is, do you need to use a UPS for digital signage? Are any companies out there using a UPS for their digital signage players or screens?
