I know this is an old thread but was not able to find info on the web site regarding 4k playback.

I agree that 4k is not necessary but I have a client who uses their 4k TV to display high res photos in their store.
The display is driven by a high end windows PC and I would like to be able to utilize this system for a digital signage system.

1. Has there been an upgrade to the Windows player to support 4k ?

2. Is there a player / hardware combination that supports 4k ?

So the Windows Player will NOT support 4k is that true ?

I agree it might be overkill for DS but it so happens I a client who is installing 4k monitors because they want to display high res images.

ANOOP excellent summation and I "get it" ! Value Add is absolutely the key.

I found your model of revenue sharing to be very interesting. This generates lots of questions and sure would like to get your insight on vertical markets I am looking at addressing. If there is no overlap or conflict of interest maybe we can talk by phone.

In the meantime my thoughts are to place screens in a specific retail industry and then go after manufacturers for ad revenue to this niche market.
I had not considered revenue sharing with the retail because my approach would be to help them generate more sales of the product lines they carry.

Right now I am trying to come up to speed on MS's distribution platform and how to develop the content necessary to roll out a prototype system, so I have not tackled what objections I will run into at the retail locations with this model.

But, my pitch was that by putting in one of my systems they would also get local content not just generic products the carry from the manufacturers. For example if they are having a sale, offering classes or some other promotion they would get a basic monthly set of content changes included. If they want something more extensive that too would be available for a fee. So I see this as a combination of Hyper local (as you mentioned) and Network advertising for products they carry.

A couple of topics I would like to talk to you about offline would be ...


1. What is your workflow for content creation
2. What business models have you seen that work best, flat rate monthly fee, hourly content creation, etc ?
It seems to me that a model similar to what web developers / content creation companies use would be viable.

3. What metrics will you be using to demonstrate an ROI for your advertisers ?
Building and managing a corporate signage system for a financial industry has a very different set of metrics than a typical advertiser trying to sell Widgets. Fortuntely I have a background in marketing and sales so I understand many of the issues and questions they will have.

4. Players - You mentioned your client owns the end point equipment which is great. But what players are they using and is something they purchased or some thing you sold or recommended to them ?

ANOOP, the fact that you have been running a system for 6 years is encouraging. This gives me confidence that platform is capable of handling my needs in the future.

If you are interested in discussing this further and prefer to talk off line let me know. I can share my background and experience and I might be able to help you with ideas on the sales side.

Thanks

I searched the forum and didn't find any recent information and wanted to know if anyone can recommend a reliable MediaSignage supported 4K hardware player ?

Will the MediadroidX support simple transitions (dissolves) or does it require a GPU box ?

this is a great question and I would like to see a separate forum area dedicated to business issues.

For example I would really enjoy hearing what business models others have found successful.
I am focusing on building out a network to independent retailers and then marketing eyeballs to manufacturers.
Would appreciate any thoughts on what others are doing.

Also, how many of you are creating custom content or your clients ?

I called DS and the person I talked to was clueless on business aspects of the market.
