Hi all,

 

I'm looking at a Digital Signage option for an extra 50" professional panel at my workplace (we already have 6, this one is not managed by our head office).

 

They send out a zip of jpeg's every month for us to play on it.

 

 

 

Ideally a nice simple way of dumping all the jpegs in, assigning them to breakfast menu or day menu, and then just playing. I'm happy to setup a server for it, and would be easier if it could run on a wee media player that will auto boot into the player. Make it simple/idiot proof.

 

I've had a quick look around, but thought there might be some solutions that some of you guys can recommend.

 

 

 

Thanks :)





If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.

There are various digital panels built for that purpose, and a few of them have players built in that can be remotely managed/setup on timers etc.

 

Philips, LG, Samsung all do Digital Sign panels. Contact the Commercial arms of a couple of retailers (JB HiFi, Noels, Harvey Norman, PB Tech).

 

These panels cost a little more, but they are designed for 24x7 running in environments that TVs are not (like shop windows that get direct sun) and they have commercial warranties.

We already have a panel, like a professional panel, same one as our main digital menu board (not gonna name names but the bigger of the fast food burger chains) so not a problem.

 

The old owner someone managed to get an extra panel from them, but we're just wanting to drive it properly (used to just be windows background changing every 30seconds and couldn't schedule breakfast/main menu) and that computer was also the old cctv one that has now been replaced with a proper DVR.

The way I read it, you already have the panel, but just looking at options to drive it ?

 

Is it a Samsung panel ?





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government
