Media Player Standards
Korbyt-powered media players are specialized PCs running the Windows 10 IoT operating system with the Korbyt media player software installed. In order to add a media player to the digital signage network, it must meet the criteria set forth by UK IT and be a Korbyt-supported device. For more information about RMG media player specs, visit www.rmgnetworks.com/media-players.
Before adding a media player to the system, the prerequisites below must be met:
- A network drop has been installed in the location where the media player is to reside and is active.
- A sufficient power source has been installed in the location where the media player is to reside and function.
- Proper video distribution is in player to carry the video signal from the media player to the desired output display or displays.
- If you don’t have all of the above, reach out to the digital signage team and they will point you in the right direction.
