The DC Media Digital Signage Enterprise CMS appliance is a plug-and-play server that provides all the power and flexibility you need to run a successful Digital Signage network.

Multi-user environment

Authorized users can upload content, build playlists and manage players using any web browser. Actions within the CMS can be restricted by assigning rights such as content management, playlist approval and network management to user groups.

Scalable Network Management

The CMS is built to support any size network from 1 player to tens of thousands of players.

Specifications and Requirements

The CMS appliance is a powerful 1U rackmount server that is easy to install and configure. The CMS supports Windows based players, LG webOS, Samsung SSSP and Android players.

We're all very excited about launching tomorrow night with the DC Media solution.
