This is an incredible software solution. It's easy to utilize, simple to integrate, and work through. The feature list is absolutely grand. It has everything you could possibly need to control signage, display, and more. You can even tie together RSS, Social Media, and other API solutions. Whether you want a simple display, or you want to have something scrolling with automated updates throughout a given time, you will find that this can assist with ease. I like the compatibility over the web, using a desktop worked great, laptop functions worked well too, and of course using a smartphone was interesting. Overall, this is a solid app, easy to use, and comprehensive in terms of compatibility and features.
Easy to use, integrate, and push forward. The automated updates, API functions, and audio compatibles were great too. Simple, no need to be a tech guru to figure this out.
None that I could find, honestly.
Easily promote your company's message while utilizing up to date features and technology!
This platform has worked its magic to promote our company message across the US within 8 facilities. The ability to add features such as RSS feed, animations and sending messages that really pop has increased employee morale while utilizing technology. We plan on using this platform for many years to come !!
If you have weak internet connection,there is a potential that the system can go down and will need a reboot of the software.

My overall experience with Mvix is supremely disappointing, because I had high hopes. The software, as I noted, boasts excellent potential - the problem is, it simply does not work as it should. The support process was maddening as well - I deployed 5 screens for my biggest and longest held client, and the end result is cost overrun due to never ending issues. I would not recommend this software to anyone - in fact, I would venture to say don't even waste your time with a trial presentation. The presentation will make you feel the platform is outstanding - it is anything but. Very disappointed in this software.
The platform has an excellent array of features - many types of media can be used, as well as the many built in widgets. Getting to know your way around the platform is easy, especially if you work in the tech world, were software can be a jungle. This platform has a very clean look and straightforward but very flexible methods of using it.
The software is horribly unreliable. The WYSIWIG for building templates is terrible, requiring unwieldy placement of zones in order to get the actual full screen to look clean and professional. Clocks randomly changing to incorrect times. Widgets simply stop working for no apparent reason - just an empty zone where your content should be. Entire screens just go black for any number of reasons - one of which is no discernible reason at all. Push out a content update? Boom, black screens. Customer support is terrible as well. Initial responses for issues is actually swift; however, the responses are inept and useless. Different techs contradicting others, and techs sending condescending and trite emails to simple questions - all the while never having found a solution to the 2 weeks of non-stop issues. Our initial point of contact with MVics simply stopped answering calls and replying to emails. I paid for 2 1 hour training sessions, and the trainer was well trained - but only when exactly on script. Questions about using various features were poorly demonstrated with no actual test data to show during the training. Save yourself a LOT of headache, and search for a better solution.

I spent time searching for the absolute best solution for our company and I found it in Mvix. We currently have one installed on our lobby TV and plan to buy more in the future for other locations. It's so easy to centrally manage them from anywhere!
There is no better value than a Mvix media player. They perform every bit as good, if not better than top dollar media players. This is the ONLY company I have found that offers their software for free after purchasing the device, everyone else charges high monthly fees to use their software in addition to having to purchase their much more expensive device. Mvix XhibitSignage is robust and has everything I wanted and more! It is extremely easy to use. I really enjoy working with it. Most importantly, their Customer Service is excellent. It's very hard these days to find companies that truly pride themselves on customer happiness after they've spent the money. Mvix is there for you when you have questions they are knowledgeable and friendly and have followed up with me multiple times to see how things were going and if we need some help.
My only regret is that I don't have more TVs to put more media players on! ;)

This all-in-one solution by Mvix includes the free XhibitSignage digital signage software AND a robust HD signage player. Starting at a one-time fee of $259, the Mvix solution (XhibitSignage + HD signage player) supports HTML5 media playback and includes -remote management -zoned screen layouts -playlist management -comprehensive scheduling options and a multi-role user management.
New York City’s Times Square is the epicenter of advertising, largely because of the large digital screens flanking many of the area’s tallest buildings. When it comes to influential advertising, digital signage is both noticeable and incredibly effective. But the technology that supports it can often be expensive, which is where Mvix’s XhibitSignage comes into play.
Mvix is aiming to make digital signage affordable. The company offers an all-in-one solution that provides organizations with its free cloud-based digital signage software, XhibitSignage, bundled with robust HD signage players. Rather than relying on expensive and outdated technology, advertisers that work with Mvix’s XhibitSignage get a robust solution that promises a healthy ROI. The cloud-based digital signage software communicates with advanced digital signage media players to display content on HD displays. Future changes or updates to the advertising display can be easily made in real time.
An entry-level digital signage system consists of a playback device (digital signage media player), a digital screen (typically LCD, LED, or plasma display), and a content management software (CMS). The Mvix digital signage media players are connected to large displays via HDMI cables, and to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cables. Once the player is online, it communicates with the XhibitSignage CMS to receive content and updates for playback.
XhibitSignage is used to manage the advertising content that displays on digital screens. The software includes a simple calendar-based scheduler for scheduling content for playback. It also allows for multi-user management, which is ideal for large digital signage networks with displays at different locations.
Designed for small and mid-size organizations, XhibitSignage makes digital signage affordable for businesses of all sizes. In fact, it is available for free with no subscriptions or contracts. The cross-functional solution is also not market or application specific. It is easily applied to different markets, for example retail stores, schools, hospitals, hotels etc. Users are able to store as many files as they like in XhibitSignage, while an advanced playlist manager makes it easy to create playlists of media.
XhibitSignage provides users with free content widgets that they can use for things like social media, PDF display, RSS feeds, MRSS feeds, Text Ticker Marquee, calendar, web-URL, YouTube, QR code, traffic, weather, clock, events listings, graphs and charts, HTML scripts, Google Docs, stock/financial data, and maps/POI. These widgets simplify the process of displaying the related content on a digital display.
With XhibitSignage, you’ll be able to customize the widgets you want to display, along with the theme settings and sizes of the individual widgets, as well as integrate them into your digital signage display for an added level of dynamism.
Within the playlist manager, XhibitSignage users are able to create playlists of media. These playlists can include a mix of content, such as a 15-second video followed by an image that displays for 10 seconds, followed by a webpage that displays for eight seconds. Users can also setup social media feeds, such as Twitter feeds or Instagram feeds, to display content at pre-determined intervals.
You can design your own custom playlist using XhibitSignage’s tools, making sure to choose the content you want and the length of time that each piece of content should display. The playlist you put together will continue to loop for as long as your digital signage is set to display.
XhibitSignage’s CMS includes a template manager, which was created to represent the layout of each user’s screen or display. It enables the end user to create multiple zones, with each of those zones carrying a different type of content or media.
When you use the template manager, you’re able to set up zones with unique forms of media in your display. For example, you can set up one zone to have scrolling text and another zone to have a playlist. You could even add a third zone with a video, and a fourth with a calendar that updates on the display in real-time.
Every XhibitSignage account can be set up to support multiple users, each with highly specialized permissions. Accounts can be designed so that users only have the ability to view and edit the content they are assigned to work on, and nothing more.
When you’re creating accounts or logins for all of the individuals who will have access to your company’s account, make sure to pay attention to the unique permissions settings. For example, you can allow certain employees to have access to the content assigned in one zone only, while other employees (such as upper-level management) have access to all content.
XhibitSignage offers a handful of free content widgets. These include widgets for social media, such as Vimeo, Flickr, Picassa, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. XhibitSignage also integrates with Google Docs, along with third-party stock, financial, and mapping applications.
XhibitSignage is available for a fraction of the cost of comparable full-featured solutions. Most of the company’s competitors charge a monthly fee for use of their software. This app charges a one-time fee for the digital signage media player that’s configured to work with the free software. Users get lifetime usage of the software. It also provides regular updates at no additional cost.
