Selecting Android Player
Our software can run on any Android 4.4+ devices, but there are hardware and quality differences between the devices (we have tested 100+ different types of devices):
Basic devices: these are entering levels of devices, mainly in the cheap (20-50 USD) price range. These devices can be perfect for simple use, but we do not recommend the for 24/7 usage. Our application can run on a 1GB RAM device, but we recommend to have 2GB. Here you can find many of these devices
Mid-range devices: they are produced by better known names like Rikomagic, Minix or Beelink. They are in the 50-150 USD range, their quality assurance is higher, and you can count with these producers for long term. Here you can find several Rikomagic, Minix or Beelink devices
Professional devices: these devices are for 24/7 use, include built in battery, and can be configured to automatically switch on and off. BrightSign is one of these producers.
All in One devices: If you don”t want to organize cables or install external boxes, you have the option to select an LG, Samsung or ELO digital signage device. In many cases the simplest solution is to use a Windows All-in-one PC (e.g. a HP) and run our Windows client on it.
We always recommend our partners to test the devices before they order a large quantity.
Rooting Android device is always recommended. Our application with root privileges can access system functions like syncing time, restarting device or updating application in silent mode.
