Getting Started with XOGO
XOGO is an affordable, easy to use digital signage platform that allows you to turn any Windows 10 device into a digital sign. It's completely free to download and use for one digital sign; if you want to unlock pro features or deploy more than one sign you can upgrade to pro right in our app for $20 per sign per month. Here's how to get started with XOGO.
Visit our downloads page to get the XOGO Content Manager app for your Windows or Android device (iOS coming soon!) This app allows you to create a XOGO account, upload images and video content, and create one or more playlists.
Next we need to set up your media player device. If you have a XOGO Mini, simply connect it to a display via an HDMI cable. Push the power button and the device immediately boots into the XOGO Decision Signage app. Follow the instructions in the box to connect the device to WiFi or ethernet. You will then see a QR code and PIN code appear on the display, like the one below.
If you're using your own PC as a media player, download and launch the XOGO Decision Signage app on your PC. You will then see a QR code and PIN code appear on the display, like the one below.
Using the XOGO Content Manager app on your mobile device, tap New to upload still images or videos into the Library section. Then tap New and create one or more playlists of content. Finally, tap New in the Player section and scan the QR code (or enter the PIN) displayed on your media player's screen to associate the media player with your unique XOGO account. Assign the media player a playlist and it will sync with the cloud (requires Internet connectivity) and immediately begin looping your content. It's now a digital sign!
Whenever you wish to make changes to playlists or add more media players, simply log into the XOGO Content Manager app and make your edits. Changes are pushed to your media players via the cloud. Automagically.
Bonus: Realtime Mode
XOGO Content Manager is more than just a content uploading tool - it's a real time remote control! Just select RealTime mode in the control panel and (provided that your media player and controller device are both connected to the Internet) you can make any content on your media player PC play in real time. Right from your phone or tablet!
And because you can set items to be invisible within a playlist, you can have your normal media content playing and then interrupt it with something that has been invisible. This is a perfect scenario for retail, as an example - you can interrupt a looping "attract" video in order to pull up tech specs, pricing or information.
