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 a TV or PC monitor.

You need a signage player that drives the screen. Typically a player is a small Windows 10 PC but it could also be an Android TV box or Raspberry Pi4.

You could also use an Android tablet if you want a smaller display for use on counter tops, shelves or a home workers desk.

The signage player is a web application that runs in a browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox, so in it’s simplest form you can run a web browser in full screen Kiosk mode.

We have a Windows desktop software that you can use on your PC to avoid any messing about with browsers.

We can supply you with a ready configured signage player that you just need to put on your network.

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

If you use a Windows PC as a player it will work fine with Windows Vista, 7 and 10. Try and use a device that has an SSD rather than an old style hard disk. An SSD is a lot faster so windows updates will be installed in a fraction of the time.

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

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

We have a number of Training Videos that take you through using the system.
