The mediaSERVER


The mediaSERVER is a private Digital Signage solution that is capable of running a network with thousands of SignagePlayers over the LAN, VPN, WAN and across the WEB.

The mediaSERVER is an affordable, self-hosted Digital Signage server for medium to large size organizations. The mediaSERVER is available as both plug and play appliance or as a software installation kit. With the latter you provide your own dedicated Windows 2008 64 server and use our mediaKEY USB licensing dongle to build a customized server solution.


MediaCLOUD is a cloud based Digital Signage (also known as SaaS or software as a service). It is a FREE service that allows you to get UNLIMITED licenses (SignagePlayers) at no cost.

Each SignagePlayer can be connected to one or more screens. All of your media files (videos, animations etc) are stored on our servers (the mediaCLOUD servers) and stream down to each remote Player. The media files are locally cached on the remote SignagePlayer so they do not depend on a constant internet connection. The mediaCLOUD Enterprise edition is only $99.00 a month (flat NOT PER SCREEN) and gets you access to the more advanced features like the Advertising Engine, branding, mediaSTORE components and more.

MediaSERVER is a privately hosted server solution. The server software and hardware are purchased and owned by you. All the licenses for the players are also owned and managed by you. With the mediaSERVER you do NOT pay a subscription fee (as you may pay with the mediaCLOUD Enterprise edition); however there is an optional updates and support annual fee. The mediaSERVER is designed to deliver the same features as the mediaCLOUD Enterprise edition, but in a privately hosted server. The mediaSERVER can be installed on any PC running Microsoft Windows 2008 64 bit English version Server.


The mediaSERVER is designed to deliver uninterrupted service to thousands of concurrently connected Digital Signage and Kiosk screens. Managing a privately hosted mediaSERVER, delivers a security level, and independence from MediaSignage that many large companies often require. And while the SaaS model is more affordable, when it comes to true ownership and management over your network, nothing beats a privately hosted mediaSERVER solution.
