Different Tablet Screens Sizes & Orientations

Display5’s CMS can be used to design a screen layout for any tablet screen which can support a full function browser.

It works with any size tablet: 8″, 10″,  22″, or other sizes.

The tablets can be either landscape or portrait orientation.

We work on just about any manufacturer – AOPEN, Crestron, IAdea, iPads, Android tablets and more.

The Display5 Room info widgets can also be used on any size digital sign.  Use the widgets on the screen canvas in different ways:

  2. As a large dedicated room info screen
  3. Have the room info for multiple rooms all displayed on a single digital sign

How To? FAQs for Getting Started with Room Panels

Once you have tried Display5 and you are ready to get the content playing on your room panels, these FAQs can help you get started.

How do you get the Display5 Show to play on a room panel?

When you have built your Show and are ready to view it on a ROOM PANEL, all you need to do is PREVIEW the Show when you are logged into Display5.  When you are looking at your Show in the PREVIEW window, go to the ADDRESS BAR, in the top-left of the PREVIEW window and copy the URL.  That URL, is the URL for your Show. And when you put that URL in the browser of the ROOM PANEL, it will play your Show. 

How do I control all the Room panels?

You will need to register each one of your ROOM PANELS.  Registering a Room panel is only required ONCE, and takes about 5 minutes.  Once your Room panels is registered, you will be able to change the content playing on them instantly from where ever you can log in from a browser. To learn the 5-minute process of registering a Room panel, please go to this page, and see #1, Step 5.

How can I monitor my Room panels? Getting started digital signage

With your subscription, you will be able to monitor each of your registered Room panels from your Display5 dashboard once you log in.  You will be able to instantly see the status of each of your Room panels, restart them any time, switch the content playing on them.  To learn more about the dashboard, please go to this page.

How do I set up the browser on the Room panel?

When you first set up the Room panel’s browser, we recommend that you change some of the settings in the browser to make the playing of your content smooth and uninterrupted.  These include making sure the content plays on the full screen and making sure that if you use videos, the videos will automatically play (the default is for videos to NOT play automatically.  To learn the simple browser settings adjustmentsplease go to this page – Section #1, Step 4.

Note: Display5 runs on any full-function browser – Chrome, FireFax, Edge, Safari, etc. It also works on browsers that run on Linux, Android, or Smart TVs. Not all of these browsers have the full set of HTML feature support found in Chrome, Safari, Edge, Firefox, so they may not be able to use all the functionality in Display5.  A lower functionality browser may work for you if you are using simple functions in Display5.

Does Display5 have any online training?

We have over 30 training videos that you can access online anytime, and we are always adding more.  The videos are presented in a structured way to help you navigate to exactly where you need to go.  Please go here to access our video training portal.

Commercial devices vs Consumer tablets

Display5 works on both but we recommend Commercial. Why?

Significantly Enhanced Control

Commercial devices are made to be a part of a network of displays and provide enhanced programming and remote control capabilities such as: programmable colored display lights; remote re-boot of device; capability to remotely turn on / off; remotely change device settings, e.g. brightness; Access RS232 port, NFC

Ruggedized Operating Environment

Built for 24 hour, 7-days per week operation in a wide range of operating environments. Lower ongoing device management operations leads to a lower TCO.

Better Hardware

Commercial devices provide greater reliability, enhanced security, and more robust hardware features for the commercial environment.

No Fire Hazard

Consumer tablets, like iPads, are not meant to be plugged in 24 hours a day. When they are, they become a potential fire hazard.

Easier Installation

Commercial devices come with built in VESA mounts and POE making installation easier and less costly.

Customizable

Leverage APIs for device light control, NFC and more. Add hardware drivers or request special features.
