Ditto digital signage overview

Welcome to Ditto digital signage. Ditto allows you to put beautiful digital signage on display for the world to see.

This article provides a quick overview of the various Ditto digital signage components.

Items and lists

Items are the signage assets that you create or upload in the Ditto account portal. Lists are where these items live. Your signage items must belong to a list. Create multiple lists to display signage at different times and locations.

When you select “New Item” inside of a list, you’ll notice that you have the option to select a layout. Layouts are pre-designed templates that allow you to create visually appealing and engaging digital signage. You can customize these layouts. Upload your own image assets and edit the existing copy to make any layout meet your needs.

Upload media

When adding a new item, you’ll also see the “Media” option. This option simply lets you upload your own assets to use as a signage item.
