Android-based hardware is a popular choice for digital signage due to its small form factor, energy efficiency, and low cost. Virtually any Android hardware with OS version 5.1 (Lollipop) or later will work with the Revel Digital platform. See our hardware page for more details on the Revel Digital Android hardware offerings. Once you have the hardware decided upon, you'll need to install the Revel Digital Player App from the Google Play Store. The Revel Digital Player App is capable of powering all but the most demanding signage scenarios with support for multiple zones, transparency, HD video, Adobe Flash, web pages, marquees, and much more.
