Whilst consumers are living with, and within, a multimedia world, from media scarcity, to digital media surplus, the question is whether technology is going to change the face of outdoor advertising. This is not necessarily the case, as outdoor formats follow demographics and reach relavant consumers in their environment. Digital formats, and campaigns that drive consumers to digital environments like mobi sites and Facebook, are becoming more prevalent, and are driven by the creative message on the outdoor advertising format.

Digital formats have begun replacing traditional outdoor advertising, and JCDecaux are embracing the digital revolution with formats in shopping malls, airports, the Gautrain, Roadside, in Medical Practices, and in bars and pubs.


JCDecaux has installed over 30 state-of-the-art digital roadside billboards in sub-Saharan Africa, packaged into numerous dynamic networks by country and day-part.  All screens, managed and flighted from the Digital Hub in Bryanston, South Africa, are in line with cutting edge international standards. The Daktronics screens, offering ‘eye-popping’ image quality (280 pixels tall x 560 pixels wide), are made with using the latest global digital technology.

The screens offer the widest colour palette (144 quadrillion colours) ensuring content creator's have the ability to digitally duplicate ad copy reproductions. Increased contrast with zero perceived tiling, minimized lines between blacker blacks, richer colours, and bolder images equal one great-looking display. This technology also encourages energy efficiency. A further enhancement is the addition of proof-of-play webcams which have been installed on each screen to provide advertisers real-time reassurance that their ad is being flighted.   

The networks offer advertisers tactical messaging, day-part message management and real-time updates. This allows for strategic, location-based multiple impacts throughout the consumer’s day, creating seamless conversations with consumers and fitting in with their lifestyle or life flow and can be sewn together to create a coherent story.
