The ability to use video and animation is one of the best perks of owning an LED sign. Moving ads grab customers’ attention in a way that static, traditional signage cannot. See how this form of digital signage content can maximize your EMC’s effectiveness.

Why Use Video and Animation?

  • Video and animation offers support to on-screen text.
  • Effective combination of motion vs. text gives a “broadcast-quality” look and feel.
  • Full-motion video allows marketers to include realistic visuals that tap into human emotions and drive the message home.

When it comes to the viewers, video and animation:

  • Attracts their attention
  • Captures a longer dwell time
  • Satisfies their expectations for dynamic content

Tips for Using LED Sign Video and Animation

  • Don’t feel the need to animate every corner of the screen or every single ad.
  • Be wary of moving text: It can be difficult to read, not to mention that more than one moving element will distract from your actual message.
  • Call attention to your headline or alert by setting it to blink a few times, then remain static so it can be read.
  • Grab visual interest with a slow pan over a static image, or steady shot of something slightly moving.
  • Keep individual animations and videos around 15 seconds long.
  • Choose videos without too much detail, but with a smooth gradation of color to ensure clear display.
  • Set message hold times to four or five seconds so they don’t move too quickly or too slowly.
