About Digital signage for cinema theaters

Barco's digital signage for cinema theaters solution consists of three fully integrated building blocks, offering content creation, distribution and visualization. The platform is fully scalable and can be used for small (<5 displays) as well as large (>1000 displays) installations.

Page Editor: content creation

The easy-to-handle Page Editor software provides you with all the necessary tools to create attractive and dynamic content for your display information system – from basic texts and images to videos and flash objects. What you see on your computer monitor is what you will get on your displays or LED billboards.

IDS Server: content distribution & scheduling

Once the content is created, it has to be mapped out to the displays. The IDS Server controls the players remotely, so content can be adjusted at any time and any place. In addition, your content can be shared among several users.

DISplayer: content visualization

The third building block of the Barco digital signage system is the DISplayer: a reliable platform for visualizing content on any type of display that can be used in a fixed or mobile application.


  • All-in-one solution: With Barco’s all-inclusive digital signage package, you can create, distribute and display your messages with one fully integrated system that is easy to use.

  • Scalable to your needs: Whether you own a small theater or a large multiplex, the scalable Barco signage system is a perfect fit for your needs – delivering reliable and guaranteed infotainment across your theaters.

  • Time-tested technology: The Barco signage solution is based on reliable, time-tested technology. Barco has nearly 20 years of experience and an installed base of more than 100,000 players in over 55 countries.

  • Full flexibility: Instead of spending time and money posting and updating individual posters, the Barco signage system enables you to display various static images, animations and trailers. This can easily be integrated with back-office applications like ticketing info or seat occupation.

  • Supporting all common file formats: Give your imagination free play. The Barco digital signage platform supports a wide variety of multimedia formats (automatic web feeds, flash, video, images, text, etc.) to create maximum impact with your audience.

  • Rock-solid reliability: The Barco system runs on its own independent platform, offering enhanced reliability and uptime. This significantly reduces the manpower needed to handle and maintain the system.
