Let's get started with connecting your display to the Simpleway CX platform and some initial display configurations in the the user interface.
For your trial, you can use our Simpleway desktop media player SimpleVUE to see the designed content right on your computer screen.
However, designing content and showing it on the same computer in the SimpleVUE media player is limited. To get the best from our product, we offer you the ability to order our Simpleway display device controllers as illustrated below, delivering a 3rd generation high video performance for heavy-duty operations.
- Display device connected to the system
