Content Player

Once your signs are deployed, Content Player displays your finished design and manages the overall experience. It is a reliable, high-performance product that is the public facing piece of your Visual Communications system. While in operation, player issues and statistics are logged and reported back to Content Manager. Maintenance tasks such as purging unused content, scheduling reboots and powering displays can be all controlled remotely. Content Player will not over-tax your network—meaning you have the capacity to leverage your Visual Communications network throughout your facility on everything from small meeting room signs to large outdoor LED displays.

FWI offers a wide variety of Content Player options and the freedom to select the platform that works best for you. Our Content Players work for: Windows, iOS, Mac and Web. Our Windows, iOS, and Mac versions are native applications that do not require emulators or virtual machines. While using the FWI Web Player, Visual Communications applications can be displayed as HTML in any standard web browser.
