What are DSDevices?
Digital signs rely on a variety of hardware to deliver the content. The components of a typical digital sign installation include one or more display screens, one or more client players, and a content management server. Typically there is a display screen, a client player, and a content management server that is connected to the client player over a network. One content management server may support multiple client players and one client player may support multiple screens. 


DSDevices offer two configurations of the product namely the server (content management system) and the client (player).  
The basic specifications meet the requirements of the 'Xibo' open source software but DSDevices are fully customisable to meet individual requirements for Windows or Android .

- The background images used on this page are not royalty-free. Please use images from your own collection.  
- The page SAMPLE is a "hidden" page that contains sets of elements grouped into "sections": Title + photo, Icons + text, text + icons + video, etc...  
Select the section that best fits the design desired and copy/paste it onto your page (to “paste” in a specific location, right-click and choose Paste). Be sure to take the entirety of the section by selecting its external container (the one containing the background image or color). 
- Important: each "section" must have one, and only one, inner container (element group) for the section content. The outer margins of this sub-container set minimum distances from section boundaries.
- The "Horizontal" button in the "Selection" menu controls the automatic centering of an element. 

- To change the order of elements - i.e. place an element below another in a "relative" positioned container (like most of the content in the sections), use the Element Explorer on the left: green "arrow buttons" will appear when it is possible to change the order. Icons under an element and above the element group allow to put elements onto the same "line" and modify alignment.
- The entire header menu can be modified in its dedicated Layer (e.g. "Base_MenuRetractable"; simply change the page’s Layer to use a different menu). Use this to modify menu links (by copy/pasting existing links), change the colors etc. Note that these elements are pre-programmed to work with one another, so try to avoid “dragging” new ones on that could disrupt the general responsive behavior of the menu (favor using copy & paste).

What our customers say... 

"We purchased 21 x DSDevices client players to replace an old solution. So far, the DSDevices have been extremely easy to utilize. We have found the main benefits of using the solution are ease of use, minimal set up and works out of the box".  
Kartr Higgins 
Section Manager – IS 
TS Tech Alabama, LLC – Alabama, USA 

"We were a start up business looking for a digital signage solution; other options considered were too expensive for our budget. DSDevices gives a good solution for flexible display of menus and POS material in our coffee shop and reception areas. The main benefit for us was the ability to quickly change displays, to drive sales via special offers etc. DSDevices works well, was simple to deploy and even a non techie like me can use it! We are pleased with the DSDevices solution and will use it again at future sites". 
Cliff Nicholls 
Managing Director 
Jump Extreme Ltd – Chester, UK 

"The installation of 15 DSDevices client players was so simple to set up and begin using. We have found the main benefits of buying from DSDevices were direct access to the company for ordering and support. We would definitely recommend DSDevices to anyone considering purchasing, they work like a charm!".
