That’s how SmilControl works


For the SmilControl-CMS as web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) you only need an up-to-date web browser.

To be able to play your content on a screen, you need a SMIL-compatible media player. Devices that fulfill this standard are available in different versions with very specific adaptations for digital signage.

Depending on the requirements of your campaign and the required playing surface, you choose the optimal device. There are media players that enable high resolution (UHD/4K), are designed for robust working environments or can be flexibly plugged together to form large screens.

Moreover, Garlic was released to add to this mix. Garlic  is an open-source player that runs on multiple operating systems – Windows, Linux, Android. To save expenses, you can use small, single-board computers or just use Garlic to run a SMIL player from your PC.

Digital Signage the easy way

To start off, you can register your player to SmilControl with your transfer code. Using this code, you will activate your device, and it will appear on the system where the administrator can easily operate on it.

You can create a new playlist using drag’n’drop and maneuver images and videos into that playlist.

You can choose to play time for the available templates and adjust them according to your requirements.

Or you can create your own templates, conveniently store your own data sources such as RSS feeds and generate your own channel.

Once done with the playlist, you can adjust its user access with a couple of clicks.

Digital signage does not have to be complicated.
