High-technology televisions, the Internet, touch screens and such technologies are changing the media environment. Therefore, it changes the ways of communication. Nowadays, interactive digital displays are more commonly used for outdoor advertisements such as shop displays, billboards and on public transport. This research explores the impacts of interactive digital displays for outdoor advertising and how efficiently they engage with customers. Advertising media is evolving into a whole new level with upcoming developments. However, it still needs a full adaptation by customers.
