Media players are hardware devices designed specifically for displaying content on digital signage in commercial environments. They differ from a PC or Mac in the way they are designed and managed, and deliver reliability in critical environments.
When deciding which media player to buy, it is important to have a digital content strategy in place. Start with a clear idea of the type of content you want your audience to see, how you want to manage it, and think about any features you may require at a later stage. Media Players are usually paired with software that allows you to manage and deploy your content via your computer.
