How does XOGO compare to other signage platforms?
XOGO was designed with simplicity and low cost in mind. We have two apps: one works like a remote control lets you upload content and create playlists - the other constantly loops whatever playlist you send to it. XOGO is complete free to download and use for one digital sign. To unlock advanced features or deploy more than one digital sign, you can upgrade to pro right inside the content manager app for only $20 per digital sign (media player) per month.
What is the difference between free and pro?
In the free version you can upload up to 15 library items, videos up to one minute long and manage only a single digital sign. In our pro version you can have an unlimited number of library items and playlists, plus access to new features like playlist scheduling (social media integrations coming soon!). The price is just $20 per digital sign per month.
What file types does XOGO support?
The media player application (XOGO Decision Signage) will display both static images and video files. We currently support PNG and JPEG still images, and MP4 / MOV files (H.264 codec) for video. Stay tuned as we add support for more file types and pulling in online content like social media feeds!
Does XOGO still work if my media player loses WiFi?
Absolutely. XOGO will cache your playlist on your media player PC so even if it loses Internetconnectivity, your content keeps playing. You only need connectivity for the media player (and the device running the management app) when you want to make changes to your media playlist, or when you want to use Realtime mode.
How do I get my content from the management app to the media player?
We made this super easy; in fact, it's probably the coolest thing about our platform. All you need to do is open the XOGO Content Manager app on your tablet or smart phone, and you'll see a screen like the one below. Just click New in order to upload content, create playlists, and add media players to play those playlists. If you need some help please check out our Getting Started page.
Can I set up more than one digital sign?
Of course! The first one is free, and after that you'll be prompted to upgrade to pro in the XOGO Content Manager app. The price is only $20 per digital sign per month - less than a dollar per day and you can change the content as often as you want. No more printing costs!
What type of displays do you recommend?
You can run any type of digital display (or projector!) with XOGO. Of course, your media player PC must have the correct connection -or adapter- for the display that you want to use. Our XOGO Mini has an HDMI connection on the back that is compatible with all modern TVs. Your PC might have the same thing, or a mini-DisplayPort or even VGA connection. Feel free to contact us if you need assistance prior to selecting your displays and we'll be happy to help.
How does Realtime mode work?
Realtime mode is a really unique feature of XOGO Decision Signage. It allows you to immediately override whatever is currently playing on your media player (digital sign) with other content -even hidden content- in your playlist. For instance you can have a normal playlist playing all day, then pull out your tablet or phone in order to interrupt the display and show off blueprints, tech specs, holiday photos... even give a presentation!
This is really cool, but I need help developing content.
Not every business has a graphic design department, and that's okay. XOGO and our agency partners offer creative services for business that need help developing beautiful graphics and videos for their signs. Please get in touch with us for a free estimate!
