What do I need for a basic signage system?

Getting started is very easy and needs very little equipment.

Orangevalley Cloud Signage Overview

You will need something to use as the display screen such as an LCD TV or PC monitor.

You need a signage player which can be a Windows or Linux PC or something like a Raspberry Pi or Android TV Box that you connect to the screen with an HDMI or VGA cable.

You can use a web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox or Microsofts Edge as the signage player. Connect it to our cloud service and run the browser in full screen kiosk mode, usually entered by hitting the F11 key.

Finally you need a PC or laptop with which to control the system from. This is done through a web browser so you don’t need to install any software.

We can supply you with a pre configured signage player, but you can use your own equipment. If you use a Windows PC it will work fine with Vista, 7 and 10. If you’re using Linux use a version that supports hardware acceleration. It will need an Internet connection, wired rather than wireless is normally more reliable.

If you want to add more screens you just need to add additional players and activate them in the control panel.

That’s it, no complicated configurations to do, no software to install and you will be up and running in no time.

Check our YouTube Channel for training videos to see how to operate the system.
