Enterprise edition, branding and reselling / Business Model
« on: February 25, 2014, 01:44:52 PM »
I don't really see an advantage to hiding the fact that the software is free.  I think the best way to go to market with media signage is to simply set them up with there own free account that includes their first initial phase of content and go from there.  Like for example:  Mr. Customer, I'll set you up with your own account that includes the software and your initial  content for x$.  Business owners do not have the time to learn how to use this software, create content and manage it to keep it fresh.  The digital signage entrepreneur has to generate the income from the content creation and content management side of the business.  Just my 2 cents.   

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Media Box 300 Price
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:48:49 AM »
I'm receiving a lot of emails informing me that Microsoft is lowing their price of windows so they can be more competitive against tablets etc......  Probably junk email but if not, Just curious if this could possibly bring down the cost of the Media Box 300.  I really wish we had a windows player for around $400..  The droid is not trustworthy enough and $600 or $700 is a tough sell to a small business owner like a coffee shop or auto repair shop. Plus I have to put at least 10% on top to make it worth a sales call.   After screen, installation, content and media player, we're looking at $1500 plus.
$400 could close more deals.  Heck, my laptop runs windows 8 and I purchased this for $500 dollars and it runs swf's, hd video and stll's flawlessly.  Plus I have a million other programs on top.  I've read some comments about members building their own but I'd like to support the cause.   

I have resources that I'd like to apply to other Business accounts.  Is there a way to retrieve a resource from one account and simply apply to the timeline of another account without going through the uploading process all over again?  Thanks!

SignageStudio / Transitions between Timelines
« on: January 21, 2014, 06:48:01 AM »
I'm running 3 channels on a timeline and when transitioning to the next time line all three channels come on at various times.  I'd like a smooth transition.  I'm simply using JPG's in 2 channels and a simple embedded RSS in the 3rd channel.  Running on windows XP and another station is using droid 150.  Is this a processor issue or does anyone have any other ideas.  Thanks!

Enterprise edition, branding and reselling / Upgrade to Enterprise
« on: December 25, 2013, 04:30:47 PM »
Trying to create a enterprise reseller account.  I'm being directed to a page that says:  Click inside the Signage Studio to upgrade, and an arrow is pointing to a upgrade icon located to the left of the twitter icon at the top of the studio page.  However, there is no upgrade icon in my studio page.  I downloaded the signage studio just recently so I should have the most recent version.  Any ideas? 

SignagePlayer / desktop player in windows 8 and resource size inside scenes
« on: December 23, 2013, 06:39:51 AM »
My resource is 1920x1080 inside a scene that is 1920x1080.  It does not appear this way when running the desktop signage player. skewing.
I had this issue when running the same scene on the droid 100 and i read that I should size the resource to 1280x720 while keeping the scene 1920x1080 and that fixed the issue on the droid.
I was hoping the same fix would apply to the desktop signage player running on my hp laptop running windows 8 but this is not the case.  Any ideas?

SignageStudio / Applying Boarder to Resource inside scene
« on: December 23, 2013, 03:42:11 AM »
I'm able to apply the boarder to a resource inside a scene however when I save and upload it does not appear on the screen.  It does show in the studio but not the screen.  Using media droid 100.  Anybody? Bueller? Thanks!

To undo back a couple of commands would be great!

mediaPLAYERS, Hardware and accessories / Mediadroid 100
« on: April 26, 2013, 08:12:32 PM »
I find the droid 100 player to be very weak. I'd recommend it for a simple slide show with jpg images but I'm using flash, HD video etc.... I spend more time looking at dark channels then my actual content.  Really wish I would have purchased the M300.  But now I'm even having concerns about the M300. I don't want any limitions on what graphic content I plan to display.  I'd hate to now pay 800 to find out that I need to spend another 1200 for a custom solution.  Any people out there using the 300?  Is it flawless?  Also, anybody making custom players with more beef?  I'd rather pay more now than double later. Thanks!
