In this article we’ll show you how you can use SlideDog to easily create a digital signage solution with only a laptop and a PC/TV screen.
With SlideDog, you can easily create a digital signage solution with only a laptop and a PC/TV screen. The cool thing is that SlideDog does not only let you automate slides; You can put together all kinds of media, such as Prezis, web pages and YouTube clips into a looping presentation. To get started, connect your laptop to the screen you would like to show your looping presentation on and then follow the three steps below:
Start SlideDog and select “Preferences” from the menu. You can adjust the timing of the automatic slide/file changes by setting the “Advance every X seconds” option.
Add the media you would like to use to the SlideDog playlist. You can use any combination of media in your digital signage presentation. Some file types behave a bit differently when looping mode is activated:
SlideDog will now go though your material slide-by-slide. After a file has finished playing, SlideDog will automatically switch to the next file in your playlist. When the last file in your playlist has finished playing, SlideDog will jump back to the first file.
That’s it! We think that SlideDog can be a neat and low cost digital signage solution for trade shows, waiting rooms, conferences etc. We would love to hear more about how you use SlideDog as a digital signage solution in the comments below.
