Screens and media players

To display information on a screen, there are two different options. Either you have a screen with an internal media player that enables our PLAYin software to be installed directly on the screen. Alternatively, if you do not have a screen that supports PLAYin, you can plug in an external media player (PLAYport HD) into the screen. The external media player can be connected to any screen or monitor that has an HDMI input and full HD resolution (1920x1080px).

Installing PLAYin or PLAYport

Regardless if you choose to use PLAYin or PLAYport HD, it needs to be installed.

The PLAYin software must be installed on the screen while the PLAYport HD always is pre-installed. Both options require a network connection – either wireless or wired.


If you have not purchased a screen pre-installed with the PLAYipp software, you will need to install it yourself. The installation process differs between different screen models. Find your screen model in the list and then follow the installation guide for your specific screen.

If you have a screen that is not supported by PLAYin then you need to use our external media player – PLAYport HD. This is a small external media player that connects to the screen via HDMI. PLAYport HD requires a power source and network connection.
