Getting Started with XOGO

 

XOGO Decision Signage is an affordable, easy to use digital signage application that runs on the ViewSonic model NMP620-p10 media player PC.  It works in conjunction with a free app called XOGO Content Manager, which runs on a separate Windows or Android device and allows you to send content to your screens. 

Step 1:

If you have a ViewSonic PC, simply connect it to your ViewSonic display with an HDMI cable. Connect a USB keyboard and mouse to the USB ports on the front, and plug the device into a power source. Push the power button on the front of the media player and you'll see the familiar Windows 10 interface. Connect the media player to a WiFi network or a wired ethernet network.

Step 2: 

Launch the XOGO Decision Signage app from the search bar or start menu in Windows 10. You'll see a QR code appear on your ViewSonic display.

Step 3:

Next, visit our downloads page to get the free XOGO Content Manager for Windows or Android devices (iOS coming soon!). This app allows you to upload content and playlists to your media player. 

Step 4: 

Launch the XOGO Content Manager app on your Windows or Android device and create your own XOGO account.

Step 5:

Using the XOGO Content Manager app, click +NEW to upload image and video files into the Library section. Then create one or more playlists from items in your library. Finally, add your media player by scanning the QR code or entering the PIN code on the ViewSonic display. Your media player will sync with the cloud (requires Internet connectivity on both devices) and your content will begin to play in just a few moments.

Step 6:

For the best experience, we recommend setting your media player PC to assigned access mode. This is a feature in Windows 10 that will automatically launch a particular application as soon as the media player boots. In this case, you can set your media player to automatically launch XOGO and play your content when it boots up. So even if there is a loss of power, when the PC turns back on it will automatically play your playlist again! 

 

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 the 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 hidden. This is a perfect scenario for retail, as one example - you can interrupt a looping "attract" video in order to pull up tech specs, pricing or other videos or still images.
