Introducing ScreenCloud OS

ScreenCloud is excited to announce the launch of the Station P1, our first digital signage media player, which is powered by our proprietary operating system ScreenCloud OS.

Setting up and getting started with digital signage can be challenging. Apart from obtaining the correct software and hardware, installing programs and optimizing configurations can be time-consuming and laborious.

ScreenCloud OS was created to change all of that.

Too often, enterprise operating systems are outfitted with high-quality devices and offer great performance, but they also have steep learning curves and difficult use cases.

They also don't address some of the issues that many users experience when looking to extend their digital signage fleet, such as deployment, finding the correct remote device management services, and making sure your device includes industry-standard capabilities like kiosk mode.

All of these obstacles can cause problems, and in many situations, these features must be outsourced to third-party services in order to complete one's digital signage system, which can result in considerable cost increases.

With ScreenCloud OS, we provide a product specifically tailored for digital signage that includes all of the necessary capabilities in a single package at an inexpensive price.

 

 

What is ScreenCloud OS?

ScreenCloud OS is a custom Linux-based platform designed to deliver the finest digital signage experience possible with ScreenCloud. Unlike other operating systems, when you turn on a device powered by ScreenCloud OS, it boots up and just runs ScreenCloud.

Many devices on the market have outstanding performance but are not purpose-built for digital signage, and oftentimes users spend a significant amount of time attempting to set up their devices and maintain content running consistently.

ScreenCloud OS fixes this pain point as there is no need for you to install anything on the device; just simply connect it to your network and it will work, it's that simple. ScreenCloud OS provides exactly what you need for digital signage usage, as well as full support from our support team if you have any questions throughout your digital signage journey. 

 

The biggest advantage of ScreenCloud OS-powered devices is how quickly and easily you can set up your digital signage:

  • From our testing, the ScreenCloud OS device is significantly faster than the typical setup process of other third-party devices we also recommend, and this becomes much more apparent when you want to set up numerous devices in the same location at the same time. This is because the ScreenCloud OS device was created to do one thing and one thing only: power your digital signage.

Deployment is also made easy via quick and secure methods:

  • ScreenCloud OS loads device configuration from a USB flash drive, allowing the deployment of large fleets of digital signage devices considerably easier and faster. On a regular basis, devices receive automated OTA software upgrades that provide new features and advancements.

There is no need to purchase 3rd-party services to complete your digital signage setup:

  • Because the only item installed on the device is the ScreenCloud player, the ScreenCloud OS device is designed to keep your device in kiosk mode. ScreenCloud will also provide remote device management features in the near future, allowing you to have control over all of your devices, making it that much easier to scale your business and digital signage needs that much easier.

 

The Station P1 Powered by ScreenCloud OS

Now let's take a look at our first device that will come with ScreenCloud OS.

The Station P1 is a powerful digital signage media player yet it comes in a compact form factor and combined with its aluminum, commercial-grade build, and fanless design, there's a lot of flexibility when it comes to on-site application and installation.

The Station P1 is powered by a system-on-chip that is equipped with a 6-Core 64-Bit CPU and a 4-Core GPU. It is robust and powerful enough to run demanding content with ease, and with its 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, you can display content running in multiple zones without any issues. Its onboard 32GB of eMMC flash storage is also there to make sure there is enough media cache for your content to continue playing, even when your internet connection becomes unstable.

Speaking of connectivity, the ScreenCloud OS device supports both wireless and wired network connections. At launch, the Station P1 will support 1 display at up to 4K resolution at a time, and you will have the choice of connecting your display either via an HDMI connection at the back of the device or a DisplayPort over USB-C connection port at the front of the device. You can also connect your peripherals to the ScreenCloud OS device using the 2 USB-A ports at the front of the device.

In Summary...

To recap, ScreenCloud OS is our own digital signage operating system that will make the process of getting started and using digital signage much easier for our customers. The Station P1 powered by ScreenCloud OS is our first device that will come with ScreenCloud OS. It is a sturdy and small media player designed exclusively for digital signage, powerful enough to handle even the most demanding content while remaining simple to set up and use.

We are also working to add a wide range of other features and improvements to the Station P1 and ScreenCloud OS, with features like remote device management coming soon. You can also expect security updates and improvements to be added regularly via automatic over-the-air updates.

So if this is what you are looking for, we are very confident that you will be as excited with the Station P1 powered by ScreenCloud OS as we are.
