For each digital sign, you will need one Screenly Player. The Screenly Player is a small, physical device that renders content to an external screen, and users can manage their Screenly Player(s) remotely from their Screenly cloud account. The Screenly Player has very low energy-usage, and with automatic security updates, the Screenly Player is highly secure.
The Screenly Player is available worldwide in three formats;
Player Option 1 - Screenly Box 0
Choose this option if you already have your display screens or if you want to purchase your display screens separately from your digital signage player(s). The Screenly Box 0 comes with a Screenly Player (tech specs below) that has our display software preinstalled, a high-quality international power supply cord (USA/UK/EU/AU), and an HDMI cable for a reliable and trouble-free installation. Order the Screenly Box 0 directly from the PiShop US store or, instead, from the Pi Supply UK store (multiple currency options are available).
