Hardware Construction

Hardware Overview

Required Hardware for Lobby TV:

  • 1 Player - Since the same content will be run on three monitors at the same time, only one Digital Signage player is needed. For example, one viewneo 4K SignageBox. The 4K SignageBox can be purchased here in the shop.
  • 3 TV Monitors (or professional Digital Signage monitors))
  • HDMI Extender - The image signal is distributed through HDMI via CAT cable (network cable) from one player to three monitors simultaneously. Depending on the distance between the player and the monitor, an HDMI extender and distributor might be needed. There are a wide variety of options available to meet every price point.

Required Hardware for Elevator TV:

Interior Elevator TV

  • 2 x viewneo VS-Touch - The viewneo VS-Touch is a complete system, in a small package. The advantage is that it doesn’t require any additional external player, so it is ideal for this project. By connecting them via WiFi, they also provide a connection with a WiFi repeater, located on the first floor near the elevator. By using this setup a permanent connection is not needed. In order for the content to update, all that is needed is that the elevator occasionally stops on the first floor.
