Using Digital Signage in Places of Worship

by Casey Valiant on October 7, 2014

We’re seeing digital signage used in new and unexpected places these days — fast food restaurants, highway billboards, restaurant bathrooms, and even houses of worship. Whether you’re in a church, mosque, or synagogue, you may see some new digital signage going up to help with worship.

A post by Signarama franchise owner Jerry Pappalardo and his staff at Signarama Murrieta reminded us how different houses of worship can use digital signage.

Digital SignageThere’s the prayer room, the overflow room or nursing mothers’ room which have a flat-screen TV or LCD TV connected to the live video feed of the worship service, so people in that room can still watch the service. We’ve also seen live theaters and symphony halls do this for late comers as well. It’s a great way to keep late patrons from interrupting a performance, but still let them see it.

It’s frequently used on the main stage. We’ve seen large-screen TVs or projectors and screens during the message or sermon, prayers, pre-service announcements, and to display the words to the worship music. It’s also a way to display announcements before and after a service, or to put up verses and quotes during the message.

Digital signage is also appropriate for outdoor use. If you’ve ever seen a digital billboard along the highway, you can get an idea of the quality and level of technology available. It’s more than a collection of single-color blinking lights, like stadium scoreboards from the 1970s. We’re able to use LED screens that have higher resolution to create a color TV-like image that looks clear from a distance. An outdoor digital signage system even has weather-tight enclosures to keep it safe from the elements and extreme temperatures.

Digital signage is commonly seen in, and in front of, restaurants, banks, malls, and other businesses, and now churches, synagogues, and mosques. For more information, please visit the Signarama website. You can also find the Signarama store nearest you with our online store locator.
