Digital Signage Book Aimed at Traditional Sign Businesses A just-published e-book by author Justin Ryan is aimed at helping traditional sign businesses tap into the rapidly expanding electronic digital signage market. Digital Signage Power is designed with the tradi- tional sign business owner specifically in mind. Ryan, together with industry leaders and vi- sionaries, produced a book that makes it easier for traditional sign businesses to become a part of the digital signage industry, which is ex- pected to expand to a $15 billion dollar global market by 2020. Unlike other books on digital signage, Digital Signage Power is a one-stop learning resource that quickly educates its read- ers on the hardware, software, and the business benefits of the technology. "My book addresses this issue so that the sign industry can quickly gain knowledge of and experience with digital signage," says Ryan.
