It's very simple. All you need is a media player and any HDTV and access to the Display Theory platform. Once you create an account on the platform, you can synchronize your Display Theory Media Player to the dashboard. All you have to do then, is to upload your content on the dashboard, and it will automatically synchronize onto your device.

Display Theory allows you to display images and videos (which can also include sound) on your screens.

No. Even your granny can get it set up.

Content Management

This is essentially what our digital signage platform allows you to do. You can add screens, manage content, create playlists and schedule screens from anywhere in the world, as long as you have access to the internet.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Yes. Once you create a playlist, you can set it to run constantly, or choose the times you want it to play.

You can use our dashboard through a mobile browser. We don't have a native app yet, simply because there is really no need for one.

Not at the moment, but there are plans to choose different types of transitions.

Your content is uploaded on to the clod, and also cached on your device, which allows the screen to run without internet connection.

In most cases, yes, however it would depend on your hardware. Contact us for more information.

You'll need internet connection to upload content onto your media player. As soon as your content is uploaded to the device (you can test this by viewing the content on your TV), you can run the screens without connection to the internet. You will however need internet connection again should you wish to update the content on the screens.

You can upload as many media assets as you wish, the sky is the limit.

There are no limits to the file sizes you can upload, however compressing and optimising the files sizes will run better and smoother on your devices. Remember this isn't your dad's hard drive, upload content you only want to play on your screens... oh, and you wont be able to stream a friggin' movie on it.

For images we recommend up to 4mb. For videos we recommend up to 25mb.

For images we recommend .JPG, .PNG and .GIF files. For video we recommend .MP4 and .MOV files.

Your content is automatically cached onto the media player, and will run as soon as you start up your screen again.

Because we realise internet connection is never reliable, so cached content works as a back up.
