1 Samsung Digital Signage Introducing MagicInfo Pro
2 Introduction to MagicInfo Pro What is Samsung MagicInfo Pro?Samsung MagicInfo Pro is a software and computer hardware system within specialized network compatible LCD monitors, allowing transmission of media and office files across a standard Ethernet local area networks, from a computer with installed MagicInfo Pro software.MagicInfo Pro consists of two parts:The MagicInfo Pro software built into the Samsung LCD displayMagicInfo Pro server software installed on a networked PCDisplay with MagicInfo ProComputer with MagicInfo Pro SoftwareMedia and Office Files

4 The MagicInfo Pro Network Samsung MagicInfo Pro relies on an Ethernet based Local Area Connection (LAN) network to transmit and receive data. The display can be connected in several ways, explained in the following slides:Display and Server PC connected to an existing network.Display and Server PC connected directly.Multiple displays connected to a network with a single server PC.Multiple displays, and multiple server PCs connected together.Multiple systems connected into a larger network via WAN.MagicInfo Pro Client 1MagicInfo Pro Client 2MagicInfo Pro Client 3MagicInfo Pro Client 4MagicInfo Pro Client 5MagicInfo Pro Server PCLAN
5 The MagicInfo Pro Network The display can be connected to an existing LAN, via Ethernet cables. This will typically involve plugging a cable that connects to a hub, switch, or router into the display’s network port, and another cable to the server PC’s network port, as illustrated below.Display with MagicInfo ProComputer with MagicInfo Pro SoftwareNetwork Switch/Hub/Router
6 The MagicInfo Pro Network The display can be connected directly to a server PC, using a specific kind of Ethernet cable, called a “crossover cable” this will allow the server PC to “talk” directly to the MagicInfo Pro display, without any other network equipment or computers in between.Note: A crossover cable is NOT a standard network cable. Using a standard cable will not connect the two devices. A crossover cable is built differently, internally wired specifically to let two networked devices “talk”. If you connect the display and server PC directly with a standard network cable, they will not think they are connected at all.Display with MagicInfo ProComputer with MagicInfo Pro Software“Crossover” Ethernet Cable
7 The MagicInfo Pro Network Up to 50 MagicInfo Pro equipped monitors can be connected to a single computer via a LAN, as we have previously discussed, and files can be transmitted to any monitor over the local area network.You connect the displays and server PC to the network as you would if you had only one display in the system, and the MagicInfo Pro software will identify and allow you to address multiple displays.MagicInfo Pro Client 1MagicInfo Pro Client 2MagicInfo Pro Client 3MagicInfo Pro Client 4MagicInfo Pro Client 5MagicInfo Pro Server PCLAN
8 The MagicInfo Pro Network You can also connect more than one server PC to your MagicInfo Pro system. The displays and server PCs connect to the network as previously discussed.When there is more than one “server” (source computer with MagicInfo Pro software on the network), the display can be directed to download it’s content from a specific server, and receive a schedule from that server PC.MagicInfo Pro Client 1MagicInfo Pro Client 2MagicInfo Pro Client 3MagicInfo Pro Client 4MagicInfo Pro Client 5MagicInfo Pro Server PC ALANMagicInfo Pro Server PC BMagicInfo Pro Client 6For example: In the diagram to the left, there are 6 MagicInfo Pro displays, and 2 server PCs. MagicInfo Pro Clients 1,3, and 5 are configured to connect to Server PC A, where Clients 2,4, and 6 are configured to communicate with Server B.
9 MagicInfo Pro ContentSamsung MagicInfo Pro is designed to allow the user to show files from the connected MagicInfo Pro server PC onto the MagicInfo Pro display.MagicInfo Pro allows the use of several types of files:Photos and Image filesMusic (audio) filesMovie (video) filesOffice/HTML filesAdobe Flash and PDF filesRSS feedsExternal inputsMagicInfo Pro also offers the user a web browser for Internet access when the display is connected to a network with an active Internet connection.
10 MagicInfo Pro Content Sources for MagicInfo Pro Content: Photo (image) FilesTypically, these files are photos taken from digital cameras, scanned materials, computer generated graphics, images saved from the Internet, etc.Music (audio) FilesMusic or sound files can be captured from a CD, recorded by a PC, or downloaded from online resources like Apple’s iTunes music store.Movie (video) FilesMovie or video files are usually video clips captured from DVD or TV sources, or video produced specifically for computer use.Office/HTML/Flash FilesMagicInfo Pro can view files produced from Microsoft’s Office suite of programs (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) as well as viewing saved HTML and Flash files from the Internet. MagicInfo Pro can also view documents created with Adobe’s Acrobat program.RSS FeedsRSS feeds are text news items from a website, updated automatically by an internet connection.
11 MagicInfo Pro Content MagicInfo Pro Samsung MagicInfo Pro supports many file formats:Movie (video):MagicInfo Pro supports MPEG-1 and 2 video file formats, and WMV video files.Photo (images):MagicInfo Pro supports both the JPEG and BMP image file formats, as long as the resolution does not exceed x2625. The digital camera EXIF file format is not supported, unless it is input from a Samsung digital camera.Music (audio):MagicInfo Pro supports only the MP3 file format.Office/HTML/Flash:MagicInfo Pro supports Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint formats, as well as HTML and Adobe Acrobat PDF and Flash files. A reader must be installed before using these features.MagicInfoPro
12 MagicInfo Pro Content MagicInfo Pro Additional codecs and readers may be required for certain video, audio, and office file types.These codecs and readers may be installed on the MagicInfo Pro display as needed, in the same manner as they would be installed on a PC.Examples:To play a DIVX based video file, the user would need to install the proper DIVX codec on the display prior to use.To view an Adobe Acrobat PDF document, the user would need to download and install the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.MagicInfoPro
13 MagicInfo Pro Server Software The MagicInfo Pro software must be installed on a PC connected to the same network as the MagicInfo Pro display, or connected directly to the MagicInfo Pro display, as previously discussed.The MagicInfo Pro software allows the user to “register” a library of files for use by the MagicInfo Pro display.The software also allows the user to schedule content to be viewed on the MagicInfo Pro display.Using the MagicInfo Pro software, a user can control the connected MagicInfo Pro display.MagicInfo Pro Server Software
14 MagicInfo Pro Server Software The MagicInfo Pro server software content system is based around the concept of templates or “screens”. Each piece of scheduled content, or combination of pieces, must be assembled into a template file. This file is what tells the display what content is displayed, and how it is laid out.
15 MagicInfo Pro Server Software MagicInfo Pro’s template creator allows you to create boxes for photos, videos, Flash files, websites, text scrolls, and external video sources.These boxes can have numerous special effects applied.Boxes can be assigned as slide shows or playlists for multiple content files of the same type.A single box can be assigned to play audio for that template, or a background audio can be added.More sophisticated templates can be created by layering content types.
16 MagicInfo Pro Server Software Once a template is created, it can be assigned to play on any display, or combinations of displays, available on the MagicInfo network. These can be set to run for durations as short as 1 minute, and as long as is desired, either as a single event, or on a user controlled repeat.Content will be “published” out to the network – It is sent to the display for playback. This sends the template and content to the display, for the duration of that template’s schedule.
17 MagicInfo Pro Server Software A template can be saved, and transferred to other MagicInfo servers. Templates and content can also be saved, and transferred manually to the display via USB, for local playback without network use.Design screen templateCreate content scheduleSave schedule to USBCopy to display or play directly from USB
18 MagicInfo Pro Server Software MagicInfo Pro, by default, stores content on the display’s built in storage to minimize network traffic. However, streaming also supported, on a file by file basis. This can be enabled in the template creation application inside the MagicInfo Pro Server software.MagicInfo Pro ServerFile Transmittedvia download or streaming
