Low-cost Digital Signage Player Hardware

PowerSignage uses PC sticks to display digital signage on your TV. A PC stick–also called an Intel compute stick–is a pocket-sized Windows device that plugs into your TV’s HDMI input port. Due to their compact size and very low cost, PC/compute sticks provide an ideal hardware solution for digital signage display.

PC Sticks & PC Stick in TV

Simply install our PowerPlayer™ digital signage software on your stick. PowerPlayer transforms your PC or compute stick into a digital signage player capable of displaying PowerPoint signage presentations on any standard TV. A PC/compute stick is the only digital signage player hardware required for PowerSignage. It is purchased separately.
