Kiwi Digital Signage Player: The Most Affordable and Simple Option on the Market

If you want to bring digital signage to your business, but the complicated and expensive options on the market aren’t appealing, consider Kiwi Digital Signage Player. This player from New Zealand-based Kiwi Displays is affordable, simple to set up, and can be displayed on just about any screen in your store or office. It can even be used with TVs and projectors inside cars for on-the-go advertising! Here’s how it works.

How we got here Digital Signage Player

Last fall, I was at a small market in New York. A friend of mine had told me about an interesting product called Kiwi that he’d bought for his son. It’s a digital signage player that plugs into any HDMI port on any TV or monitor and starts displaying right away. There’s no software to install, it doesn’t come with any apps (you’ll use your own or buy new ones) and you can easily change out content every couple of minutes so your display is always relevant. We realized we needed to check it out, so my boss flew up from Los Angeles, met up with my friends in New York City, and went over to their apartment to see how they were using it for their six-year-old son who had just started kindergarten.

Who’s using Kiwisign Digital Signage Player

Fergus Hunt, owner of Fueled Coffee Company in Melbourne, FL, was looking for a new display solution for his new café. We want to find a player that would give us more versatility than just one screen. He found Kiwi Digital Signage Platform when doing an online search for digital signage players. Fergus likes that the product is so easy to use, not over-complicated or expensive. Within 30 minutes of unboxing his Kiwi player, he had it running on WiFi at the café – right where customers can see it while they enjoy a cup of coffee with friends or family.

What do I get when I buy a Kiwisign?

Kiwi comes with everything you need to get started, including a WiFi dongle, HDMI extender cable, speaker for audio (it’s digital signage; no one expects you to have Dolby sound), remote control (for those who are detail-oriented), and a power adapter. You just need to plug in a monitor or TV via HDMI, and connect Kiwi to power via a standard plug (we recommend at least 13 amps of electricity if your TV draws more than 60 watts—or 10 amps if it draws more than 30 watts) and join Kiwi’s wireless network. Then log into your account and that’s it! You’ll be good to go with all of Kiwi’s features.

We made everything as simple as possible

Kiwi is really easy to use. All you need to do is plug it into any TV or monitor with an HDMI port, power it up with a regular outlet, and connect your device to its WiFi signal. This will allow you to wirelessly stream content from a computer (PC or Mac), mobile device (phone or tablet), media server, cloud-based service (Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.), or the streaming box (Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV). Next, you’ll be able to play videos in high definition on any display of your choice through our simple dashboard interface.

A short product tour

Kiwi’s digital signage player is designed to plug into any HDMI port on any TV or monitor. To display your content, simply connect to a WiFi network using an Ethernet cable (or WiFi dongle) and you’re ready to go. Because it runs its own operating system, you never have to worry about incompatibility issues between hardware components like with other players. It even runs a different version of Linux for playback than for its control panel—which means better compatibility with other software options. All that means you can spend more time focusing on your content and less time figuring out how to get it displayed in front of your audience.

What can I do with it?

You can use Kiwisign to play videos, run marketing campaigns. Show live or near-live feeds, provide streaming video, display stats or scores, and even do multi-screen installations. If you already have a TV or monitor in place that you’re not using for anything else (like displaying cable), then you’re good to go—you just need power! Otherwise, all it takes is an HDMI cable to connect your TV/monitor and plug it into any outlet. It’s really that simple.
