Kitcast product overview

What is Kitcast?

Kitcast is a digital signage solution which allows businesses to design, deploy, and manage content across multiple screens and locations. With Kitcast, users are able to create and organize content for marketing, engagement, education, and other business purposes, and deploy this content across Android, Apple TV, and Amazon devices. Users simply have to connect their device to a screen, download the Kitcast app, and link the device to the Kitcast dashboard in order to start deploying digital signage.

Key benefits of using Kitcast

  • Create digital signage by combining photo, text, videos, documents, animations, and more, and customize the layout of the screen.

  • Utilize the pre-built templates within Kitcast and customize them to fit with business needs, or create templates from scratch with the custom template designer.

  • Connect the Kitcast platform to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for live social feeds, as well as TripAdvisor and Yelp to display customer reviews, and Google Calendar to display scheduled events.

  • Manage all screens from one platform simply by connecting screens and devices to the Kitcast app. Kitcast can be connected to Android devices, Apple TVs, and Amazon Fire TV Sticks for displaying content.

  • Create playlists of content to play automatically throughout the day, and schedule content or playlists to display at certain times, according to business hours.

    Pros
    We are an avid supporter of Kitcast! and recommend it to a lot of people with whom have the same needs as ours.
    I have enjoyed using the product and would recommend them to any SMB looking for an easy-to-use and visually impressive digital signage product.
    Overall I am very pleased with Kitcast and glad we made the decision to use/purchase it.
    Cons
    Powerpoint presentations as flattened losing all transitions and animations. Any video that is part of the presentations is also only displayed as an image.
    Inability to customize animations and connect to my existing calendars.
    Minor UI things (previews). Inability to test presentation on machine aside from kiosk sending it too.

    It’s about time somebody solved this problem for AppleTVs

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    The digital signage experience in our gym is great. Makes us look professional.

    Pros

    Simple, easy to use solution that works with AppleTV. Really nice graphics and nice, prepackaged templates.

    Cons

    The pricing model for a single location with a small number of AppleTV devices doesn’t make sense for a small business like we are. I would rather a single price for 1 to 5 devices within the same building. I want to be able to render a web page as one of the screens, for example our weekly class schedule which changes all the time. More dynamic content that could be fed from an API.

    Good for Entry Level

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Too rigid and limited to be useful.

    Pros

    Inexpensive. Easy to use. I liked that I got it up and running in the first 30 minutes.

    Cons

    Lacks some basic features (even within existing options). Weather was ALWAYS wrong. I didn't like the graphic design on the pre-made and it's impossible to edit basic color & layout changes. I could make my own template for the static slides but there's no way to upload animated slides. For example, I didn't like your clock, but there was no way to edit it so it's a feature that I never used. Also, the social media integrations lacked some basic functionality and they never worked. Yelp always showed the same two reviews, and there was no way to change or fix that. The Instagram integration was the best but that also lacked some basic settings so we could prioritize or block certain pics or types of pics. Plus, there's no Facebook integration at all.

    Exactly what we needed.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Our experience has been nothing but a pleasure! The Kitcast! experience is exactly as you would expect and want it to be. It is so simple to manage and pleasant​ to work in, that I didn't even bother to look at any other software company! We are an avid supporter of Kitcast! and recommend it to a lot of people with whom have the same needs as ours.

    Pros

    The simplicity of the back end of the software is amazing! For anyone who is trying to use digital signage and manage it remotely,​ this is the solution you're looking for. Design an image, upload it and have it live within minutes. We could not ask for anything more!

    Cons

    The biggest con that is not really that big of a deal for us, is the lack of a vertical version. We are told it is under construction and we eagerly await its arrival! For now, we just design our signage vertically and miss out on all of the cool features that Kitcast! gives you like ​social media integration and more!

    We use Kitcast at my place of employment to cast all types of media to our Apple TV's throughout the office. We have been able to eliminate the need for custom banners and backgrounds by utilizing the Product. Because of this, we have been able to cut down the time it takes to troubleshoot issues with our Apple Tv's

    Pros

    I like how seamlessly the product works with Apple TV and how simple it is to navigate. Very straightforward installation process and very user friendly.

    Cons

    I have not run into any issues as of yet with his product.
