Software Solutions for Existing Hardware
MediaTile makes it easy to transition from another system, taking advantage of your existing investment in displays and media players.
We want to move to MediaTile. Can we use our existing hardware? At times, we get approached by companies who are not happy with their current digital signage system and are looking to transition to a new digital signage system that is better able to meet their needs. There are many reasons why companies want to make the switch.
3 reasons for switchingWe’ve found that the top 3 reasons for switching are:
- Poor reliability
- Lack of functionality
- Ineffective and expensive support
Switching Digital SignsConnectivity to a screen is basically the same over all brands. The quality and longevity of the display can vary greatly but the ability to connect a media player to it remains the same.
Screen quality is an important issue. Compare the differences between commercial and consumer displays to understand why consumer grade screens are not appropriate for digital signage.
Switching Media PlayersThe vast majority of digital signage runs on Windows based media players and there are a lot of good reasons for this especially in the corporate and institutional environments. Windows PCs are by far the most used computer platform by businesses and institutions so they are very familiar with these devices. If your media players are Windows based then there should be no problem transitioning to MediaTile.
MediaTile offers a free certification service that will confirm that your Windows media players will be able to run the playback software.
Samsung System on Chip (SOC) DisplaysMediaTile partnered with Samsung to develop a full featured media player application for their SOC screens. If you are using any supported Samsung Smart screens, then the transition will be very easy. Learn more about Samsung Smart displays.
