About

With the growing need for brands to capture and sustain customer attention in retail environments, StoryStream TV is a digital signage solution that delivers engaging and authentic content to support buying decisions.

StoryStream TV is a powerful cloud hosted solution, which aims to rapidly increase the volume of content you publish, whilst also increasing the relevancy and quality of the message.

Tailor schedules of content for multiple screens at the click of a button, updating global screens in real time. With StoryStream’s asset manager, you can directly upload, publish and display a wide variety of content, including imagery, video content, UGC, web page content and existing StoryStream apps, from your computer to any screen worldwide.

Able to broadcast to both landscape and portrait screens, StoryStream TV rotates through your programmes, each with a specific duration, fading each programme into the next. This allows for a live, seamless delivery of content to the consumer’s experience, increasing audience engagement and resultant social interaction.

Implementation

To display StoryStream TV on your screen, you’ll also need a driver with a compatible web browser, and a reliable internet connection. While StoryStream TV is flexible enough to work at most screen sizes, we recommend a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. It should also be positioned portrait or landscape, depending on the orientation it’s configured to display from the app’s settings area.

To get StoryStream TV displaying correctly, all you’ll need to do is paste the link that’s generated in the App Store, or sent from your Account Manager into one of the compatible web browsers, and make sure it’s viewed in full screen mode (listed below).

The link will look something like this, http://apps.storystream.it/storystream-tv/html/example.html.

Suitable drivers:

Mac: MacMini, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. Minimum spec 8GB RAM.

PC: Minimum spec Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, integrated Intel G45/G43 Graphics, 64Mb dedicated video or shared 1.2GB.

Compatible web browsers (Full screen instructions):

  • Chrome 34+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Ctrl + F, Windows: F11)
  • Firefox 31+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Shift + F, Windows: F11)
  • Opera 26+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Shift + F, Windows: F11),
  • Internet Explorer 10+ (Windows: F11).

Ideal internet connection:

In order to bring new content into StoryStream TV, it requires a stable, ideally wired internet connection, with speeds of at least 4MB per second.

If connection to the internet lost, StoryStream won’t be able to load the next website on the carousel, but will still attempt to switch content at the intervals defined in the app’s settings area. Once internet connection is regained, and StoryStream moves onto the next website/media in the queue, it will play as expected.
