Rise Vision has two different types of digital signage players to show content on your display: Rise Player and Rise Player Professional. This article will help you understand what each is and how they’re different, so you can make the most informed decision about what Subscription Plan is right for you.
Don’t let the name “Player” confuse you--these are not additional pieces of hardware that you have to connect: it’s software. Both players are installed onto the Media Player that is connected to the physical display that you will use to show your digital signage content.
The player is free to use on an unlimited number of Displays and includes the following features that make it easy for you to manage your digital signage:
Display Status: Verify if your Display is online or offline and when it last connected.
Reboot: Control when your Media Player reboots.
Display Screenshot: Verify what is showing on your Display.
System Information: Verify the local IP Address, MAC Address and Operating System of your Media Player.
Rise Player Professional
Rise Player Professional allows you to start and show content even when your Media Player is offline. Offline play is especially important if your display is located in an area with a slow or unreliable Internet connection. Nobody likes to see error messages on their screen, and our Rise Player Professional prevents that from happening. As long as your content has been loaded at least once, and the content doesn’t rely on real-time data feeds (such as weather or RSS news) your content will always be shown.
In addition to Offline Play Rise Player Professional is the foundation that new features will be added into in the future. Having your Display running on Rise Player Professional means there’s nothing more you need to do when any features are added.
