How can we help?
Selecting the right player is crucial for carrying out a successful Digital Signage project. Wallboard cannot take any responsibility for performance if the player used is not adequate for the content that you are trying to run.
We recommend that our partners always test devices before they order a large quantity.
Rooted Android devices are always recommended. With root privileges, our application can access system functions such as time sync, remote device restart, and be able to update the application in silent mode.
For the requirements of our Android player please refer to
We can classify devices available on the market based on features, reliability, and price. Different Wallboard licenses will enable different complexity of content. Please refer to: https://wallboard.info/knowledge-base/how-does-licensing-work/
These devices can cost more than $200 USD but are designed and built for 24/7 use. Most of them can be configured to automatically switch on and off, have better RAM, and have metal housings. These commercial-grade devices can play most contents including content with 4k videos and heavy animations. We still recommend testing before major deployments.

- Giada DN74 – http://www.giadatech.com/index/product/detail/aid/692.html
These devices are priced in the $100 – $200 USD range. These devices offer more features and slightly better reliability but are not produced for 24/7 usage. Better-known producers include Rikomagic, Minix, and Beelink, but there are many different product lines and manufacturers available. Their performance should always be tested and matched to the content in question.

These are entry-level devices and are typically in the lower $20 – $100 USD price range. They are mostly intended for consumer or home use and we only recommend displaying pictures and simple videos. These devices may be best used with our Lite License only. We have no example because we do not recommend using any of these devices. Their performance should always be tested and matched to the content in question.
