Frequently asked questions :
Q. Do I need any specialist software to control my WebMedia M4 from a PC?
A. No, the WebMedia M4 has all the software built in and accessible via a web browser interface which means that there is no extra management software that needs to be installed on local PC's.
Q. How do I set-up initial settings on a WebMedia M4 like network etc.?
A. There is an on-screen menu which allows you to set this – after it is set up, you can either control the unit by a web browser from a PC
Q. Can you do screen layouts with multiple areas doing different things easily?
A. Yes, with WebMedia scenes, you can layout the screen with the media you want using a simple click and drag interface all through the web browser.
Q. I want some people to be able to change some of the information on the screens, but not give them access to the whole system – is this possible?
A. WebMedia Scenes allows the creation of an overall screen design with the ability to "lock" areas to prevent them being changed, while making content in other areas adjustable by another user. This means information relevant to a certain department can be altered locally by that department, while corporate notices and branding are controlled centrally.
Q. We only use Apples - will WebMedia M4 work with Apple Macs?
A. Yes, as the interface is browser based, it is compatible with any platform, be it Apple, Linux or Windows. A number of design companies use Apples with WebMedia M4 every day.
Q. Is the WebMedia M4 available as a software only package?
A. No, the WebMedia M4 is an appliance and uses specific hardware to enable it to carry out its tasks.
Q. Can the WebMedia M4 drive more than one screen?
A. Yes, by using a VGA splitter (sender and receivers). The video feed is split and each screen displays the same content.
(NB. For each different set of content (channel) you have playing, you will need an additional WebMedia M4).
2 screens playing the same content in reception, a single screen in the Main waiting area and a single screen in the Sub waiting area.
You will need = 3 WebMedia M4 units with 4 screens, a VGA splitter and 2 receivers.
4 screens playing the same content all the time.
You will need 1 WebMedia M4 with 4 screens, a VGA splitter and 4 receivers.
Q. Can I see the content of the WebMedia M4 before I send the layouts to my screens?
A. Yes, you can get a good idea of the layout in your web browser, but will need to invest in an additional M4 unit (an authoring unit) to fully visualise the content and layout before sending to screens. This is really only required on larger networks.
Q. Are there any recommended web browsers to use?
A. WebMedia M4 is an advance feature rich solution. It will give you better access to features and design results if you use a later version of any web browser. Jayex recommends the use of Firefox and does not support WebMedia M4 use with I.E older versions such as I.E 6 or 7.
Q. Why shouldn't I just use a PC running PowerPoint or some other digital signage software?
A. One of the key things to note is that the M4 does not require the maintenance overhead of a standard PC, requires no software installation on your network or an Anti-Virus policy, but other key points include;
● Remote Access – Controlled by a web interface, updated over the network
● Timed Content – Automatically changes playing content at various times of the day
● Reliability – Solid state operating system provides maximum resilience (e.g. recovers from power failures and reduced risk of corruption)
● Security – Secure communication prevents unwanted changes
● Save Energy and Reduce Costs – A WebMedia M4 player draws 1/10 of the power used by an average desktop PC – about the same as an energy saving light bulb.
Q. If I have a number of WebMedia M4 units do can I control them all from the same place?
A. Yes, you simply nominate one WebMedia M4 to act as a supervisory (authoring) unit and create all your content on this. You can assign the different content to different groups and then you simply telly our other WebMedia M4 units which group they are in.
Q. Can I use a WebMedia M4 somewhere I don't have a network connection e.g. for an event?
A. Yes, the WebMedia M4 can create a media USB key, which when put into another WebMedia M4 will upload the content. This allows you to easily transfer play-lists to WebMedia M4s that don't have local network connections.
(Nb. It is also a quick way of transferring data where the connection is particularly slow)
Q. Is the WebMedia M4 able to be used interactively?
A. Yes, WebMedia M4 is the only digital signage player to work with Jayex applications such as: patient call, waiting room updates, way finding and exchange rate software.
Nb. It can even support certain types of touch screen usages (e.g. the 3M Micro-touch for certain applications).
Q. Will the WebMedia M4 run PowerPoint Presentations?
A. Not directly, but it will run a PowerPoint that has been saved out as jpeg slides as a slideshow, or you can use a piece of software such as Wondershare's PPT-to-Video package
