Where is my content saved?
Your content is uploaded on to the clod, and also cached on your device, which allows the screen to run without internet connection.
Does the software work on L.E.D Screens?
In most cases, yes, however it would depend on your hardware. Contact us for more information.
Can the screens run without internet connection?

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.

Is there a limit to the amount of files I can upload?
You can upload as many media assets as you wish, the sky is the limit.
Is there a limit to the size of files I can upload?
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.
What file formats are best to upload?
For images we recommend .JPG, .PNG and .GIF files. For video we recommend .MP4 and .MOV files.
What happens if I lose interent connection, or the screens get restarted?
Your content is automatically cached onto the media player, and will run as soon as you start up your screen again.
Why is content cached onto my media player?
Because we realise internet connection is never reliable, so cached content works as a back up.

Content Management

Can I manage screens in different locations from one place?
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.
Is it easy to upload content?
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Can I schedule content to play at different times of the day or week?
Yes. Once you create a playlist, you can set it to run constantly, or choose the times you want it to play.
Can I upload and manage content using a phone?
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.
Can I change the transitions of the content?

Yes, you can change the transitions of the content… just make sure to consult with a professional mime first.
