People love watching sports in public spaces where they can share the joys (and pains) with their friends and strangers alike 🥳.
Statistically speaking, bars, pubs, and restaurants experience some of their highest footfalls during popular sporting events. That’s why our clients love to show football, rugby, tennis and other events on their screens ⚽️🏉🎾. However, we heard over and over again that if they show live TV, they can’t play promotional ads alongside them. This is a crying shame, as these promotions are most effective during such busy periods! 🤷🏻♀️
That’s why we built the Pixelart Video Streaming App for our digital signage software; it allows you to mix any external video TV/Satellite/Cable alongside your custom content and play them straight to your digital signage 🎊.
To get started, all you will need is an android media player that has HDMI-IN support. Our favourite HDMI-IN digital signage player is XMP-6400 by IAdea ❤️. Not only are these players reliable, cost effective, and powerful, they also natively integrate into Pixelart CMS. To read more on how to use IAdea players with our CMS, checkout our article here.
Hint: If you are struggling to find the App, you can always use the filter function to either search for it by name or select Apps from the drop down box
Hint: Don't worry if after you drag and drop the App you only see a placeholder, this will be replaced by the external video once the ad is running on a digital signage player

Some of our clients brand their playback by adding a logo of their company to the screen corner when they play live TV on their digital signage. Here, we will show how to overlay an image on top of the video stream with our Design Studio:
Your Video Stream Ad is ready to be published to your digital signage players 🎉.
