Digital Signage Addon Digital Signage: Prerequisites

In order to use the Digital Signage addon for your MIDAS booking system, you will need to be running at least MIDAS v4.03, and have either;
  • Display devices (TV/Monitors) installed in your venue. These screens should be connected to a computer with a network connection to the server where your MIDAS system resides. If you wish to have multiple screens displaying different content at the same time (in the case of a separate screen outside each room showing only that room's bookings), each screen would require a connection to a different computer (or separate graphics card output) which in turn has a network connection to the server where your MIDAS resides. or;
  • iPad/Tablet devices installed in your venue. These devices should have a modern web browser installed, an active Wi-Fi connection, and be able to connect to the server where your MIDAS (and Digital Signage addon) run. You also like to consider some form of enclosure for your mounted iPads/tablets to prevent unauthorized interaction with the devices.

Note: Display devices, tablets/computers, and any other associated hardware and infrastructure are not supplied by MIDAS.

A basic knowledge of HTML is also required to compose your screen templates.
