NTI-Z Series Systems Work ?
We make it simple for you. All you have to do is create
your media 'content' and set up your
environment on the Z-Series Digital Signage Server
(DSS). Display spreadsheets, menus, pictures, a website, or a full looping
advertisements to your customers or company.
What Do You Mean by
'Media Content' ?
The term 'content' represents the information that you are displaying on your
digital signs. It could be simple text, a schedule, a picture or a video. Media content is created
easily with the MS PowerPoint software included with the system, or
you may use any other PC based program to create your content.
How Do I Create my Content ?
Z-Series systems come with easy to use Microsoft Office 2010
with PowerPoint for setting up
and configuring your media for your digital sign displays.
Once you have created your content right click and SEND TO desired
display. It is that simple:
How Do I Update the
Content on the Displays ?
Simple. Let's say you need to make a change on
digital sign #5. Just open the software (PowerPoint for example),
make your modifications, and save. Content will automatically
refresh on display #5 on the next loop of the media, and the best
part is, you can make the changes live!
DS-Z Series Systems
Apart From All Other DS Systems?
We have designed a cutting edge system
for Digital Signage based on the most current technologies allowing up to 11 digital signs to be controlled
with a single PC based system. Something that has never been done before,
until now. Typical digital signage systems require
multiple, very expensive decoder boxes at
each LCD display location as well as additional complex equipment and
An NTI Z-Series digital signage system
is simple to use, manage and there are NO recurring fees. Once you buy the
equipment you own it.
How Far Away Can My
Content Displays be From the DS Server?
There are a number of ways to extend video out to
your content displays depending on the distance. Distance is
completely determined by the type of connections you are
using. Discuss this with your sales rep when you call, we can steer
you in the right direction.
For example, you
can extent content up
to 600' away if you are connecting with VGA connections. One transmit/receive pair of modules would be needed
for each display extended through standard CAT5 network cable (customer
provided). See Wireless video extension over CAT5. Again, talk to your sales rep
to discuss this if you are using VGA.
How Do DS-Z Systems
Compare to Others?
See for yourself below in this example, there really is NO comparison.
Our systems are one of a kind, we have designed them to be easy to use and maintain. A huge advantage over older
technologies in digital signage.
