Turn Any TV or Monitor into Digital Signage with SignStick®
As its name implies, SignStick® is a small “stick” device that plugs directly into any modern TV or monitor to display digital signage.
The SignStick connects to your network via WiFi or via the included Ethernet adapter. You configure the SignStick with a server address and the code for a digital sign.
The SignStick then displays your signage, which you control from the server. The server may be a DEVOS or DVExpress system on your premises or in the Cloud. Or your server may be the inexpensive Arcus service.

Benefits of SignStick Digital Signage
Simple to Use
The Discover Video digital signage system is easy for anyone to use. Just log in to the DEVOS system web portal and use the digital signage wizard. You can have a complete system up and running within minutes. Each system can support multiple sign creators, each controlling specific signs.
Create digital signs using any combination of content sources, create custom displays, or use the included templates. Select your choice of server, player type, and display device. Anyone that can create a Google slide or PowerPoint can create a digital sign. Changes are reflected automatically. Mix your slides with live and on-demand video, images, and web pages in the system. Schedule content for specific times and locations.
Many digital signage solutions require several different vendors for hosting and hardware, which often cause compatibility issues. With one ecosystem, your service is trouble-free.
The DEVOS Signage System has a secure web portal for digital signage administrators. Sign creators must log in via password or Active Directory. An approval process can require that specific signs be approved before going live.
Unlike with other digital signage systems, there is no additional charge for Discover Video’s digital signage capability. When you purchase a DiscoverVideo DEVOS media management system, you get unlimited digital signage for free! We offer server and media player packages for all commercial price points.
On-Demand Messaging with Priority Alert
Use Priority Alert for emergencies and on-demand messaging. Push evacuation instructions or other important information that overrides the current content. Make one, some, or all your signs to change to display an emergency video, text, or web page. And it doesn’t have to be an emergency. Use Priority Alert to display breaking news or live video morning broadcasts, time-sensitive reminders, and announcements.
Not A Flash or Web Player
SignStick plays your digital signage content directly without depending on browsers for display of video or images.
SignStick automatically caches your video and images and intelligently manages storage. The first cycle through your playlist, the content is played via streaming from the server. All subsequent playouts are from cache, unless you change something. This arrangement means minimum bandwidth usage, and signs continue to play even without a network connection.
Most importantly, your employees are trained on the DEVOS system and cared for with white glove support via telephone and email.
Unlimited Unique Displays
Each SignStick displays the signage based on the code you entered. All SignSticks can have the same code, or they can all be different. The system places no limits on the number of variety of signs you may create. Show the lunch menu in the cafeteria while others are showing your welcome or news signs.
The layout of the display is set by selecting simple templates on the server.
- Full Screen video, images, web pages
- Side-by-Side video and images
- Video plus text and RSS feeds
- Google Slides & PowerPoint
Simply create a playlist of your content, select a template, and your signage is ready. Change your playlist and templates at any time and the SignSticks will automatically update to your new settings.
