Integrating live TV into your signage is simple but may require specific hardware depending on your implementation. Revel Digital currently supports two methods for TV passthrough, HDMI input and IPTV.
HDMI passthrough requires hardware with an HDMI input. Various Android PC's support this feature, but compatibility with our software is not guaranteed. We can provide a list of supported hardware providers, or you may send us a sample of your hardware for us to test.
IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) is essentially video streaming. Most streaming protocols are compatible with our player app but your mileage may vary depending on connection bandwidth/quality as well the quality of the encoding.
Add TV to any template by adding a TV zone, then selecting the appropriate TV input type in the zone properties.
