Media Player Standards

Korbyt Players

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.

Ongoing costs

Upon joining this system, each unit is responsible for replacing their hardware.

  • RMG suggests replacing the media players every 4 years.
  • UK ITS recommends changing the display every 4 years.  

Units should also factor in staff time required to:

  • Learn the software
  • Continue to update content on digital signs 
  • Provide technical support

A communications/content contact as well as a technical support contact should be designated from each unit to work with the UK Digital Signage team.
