I was gobsmacked when I saw this. It’s a digital screen displaying a PDF file. Yep, you’ve read this correctly … a PDF file. I can’t believe businesses are still using a Windows 10 PC with PDF installed to display their marketing material. What year are we in now? Why not just use digital signage software?

FAIL FEATURES

  • Content is not displaying full screen
  • Displaying static content
  • Digital Signage player doesn’t seem to be  locked as taskbar is not minimized or hidden
  • “Boxing” word was spelt incorrectly. Was spelt as BOXIND

 

SUGGESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Use a digital signage software solution provided by a digital signage company
  • Convert the PDF to PNG and possibly display it in a slideshow with other marketing material
  • Lock down the system i.e possibly set it up in kiosk mode by using a browser to display the PNG image.
