Selecting Android Player
Selecting the right player is crucial for carrying out a successful Digital Signage project. PeakSignage 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 our android client page.
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.

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. 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. They are mostly intended for consumer or home use and we only recommend displaying pictures and simple videos. 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.
