The Digifieds platform consists of four components: (1) a central server back-end for the data management, (2) a web-based display client for visualizing information and direct interaction, (3) a mobile phone client as an alternative interface for interaction with the display, and (4) a public web client. Additionally, a web-based administration interface for content and configuration management is being provided.
