webOS Signage eliminates the need for an external media player and simplifies installation and maintenance. Without external media player, running contents such as menu board or advertisements by only using SoC and webOS function reduces TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Installation and maintenance become simple as well because only power and LAN connection are required.
