5Introducing MagicInfo Premium MagicInfo Premium is the most powerful development in Samsung’s digital signage software familyBuilding on the foundations of earlier MagicInfo software versions, Premium is a completely redesigned software solution, built to deliver a true enterprise class capability.MagicInfo Premium is intended to perform against other mainstream digital signage software packages, by offering a complete set of tools, including playback reporting and database integration.The scale of MagicInfo Premium networks is no longer limited.Premium is capable of addressing up to 500 displays, on a single server, across a network spanning as many sites as desired.
6The MagicInfo Premium Process The user creates content, by either taking existing files, and uploading them to the server, or building them into a dynamic layout using the MagicInfo Premium Author.The user then can utilize the web based interface provided by the server to manage the uploaded content, and assign it to various basic layouts and schedules.Schedules are then assigned to MagicInfo Premium displays, and the server publishes them over the network, or via the web, to the display’s local hard drive.The MagicInfo Premium Player software then begins playback of the scheduled content.
7The MagicInfo Premium Server The MagicInfo Premium Server is a web-based software tool that manages and controls content and devices, allowing the user to organize and publish content.The user accesses this software from a web browser, connecting to the user supplied server PC over a network or the Internet.Because the system is designed to be web based, a user can connect to the server and interact with it remotely.MagicInfo Premium Server supports up to 500 displays on a single server, across multiple sites, with multiple users, and does so simultaneously.
8The MagicInfo Premium Author The user can control the basic functions of MagicInfo Premium from the web interface.The MagicInfo Premium Author is a tool that goes beyond the basic functions, installed locally on the users PC, that provides the ability to create dynamic multi-zone templates and complex layouts.
9The MagicInfo Premium Player The MagicInfo Premium Player is the client application that communicates with the server and plays published content assigned by the server.The MagicInfo Premium Player is installed on the Samsung LFD PC module.
10The MagicInfo Premium Network The MagicInfo Premium system is designed to be operated over a network. This is done on a local network, or LAN, via TCP/IP.One or more MagicInfo Premium displays are connected to the network, along with a user supplied PC, that has the MagicInfo Premium Server installed.This software is a web server utility, containing all necessary components, and provides the user interface via web page to users connected to the network, from their own PCs using a web browser.Displays receive commands, content, and schedules from the server, over the LAN.All content and schedules are stored on the server PC.Multiple users can access the server at the same time.Multiple displays can be on the same network, and each is independent.MagicInfoLFD 5MagicInfo Server PCLANLFD 4LFD 1LFD 2LFD 3
11The MagicInfo Premium Network MagicInfo Premium also offers the ability to control multiple MagicInfo systems from a single point, and tie them together into one larger MagicInfo network across multiple sites.This requires the use of an internet connection at each site, with the internet connecting the master MagicInfo Premium server to issue all control, scheduling, and content.Users at each site can connect to, and control, the server software user interface from their local PCs.Site 1Site 2Site 3Manage ContentManage ScheduleControl DisplaysMagicInfo Premium Server
12MagicInfo Premium Content Samsung MagicInfo Premium is designed to allow the user to show files from the networked MagicInfo Premium server PC onto the MagicInfo Premium LFD, as well as using them in the creation of templates using the Author tool.MagicInfo Premium allows the use of several types of files:Photos and Image filesMusic (audio) filesMovie (video) filesOffice/HTML filesAdobe Flash and PDF filesLive and saved web pages in HTMLRSS feedsExternal inputs
14MagicInfo Premium Content Additional codecs and readers may be required for certain video, audio, and office file types.These codecs and viewers are usually available for free online.These codecs and readers may be installed on the MagicInfo Premium 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.To view a Microsoft PowerPoint file, the user would need to download and install the PowerPoint 2007 viewer software.
15MagicInfo Premium USB Publishing There are some applications where a network to connect the Samsung LFD and a server PC is not possible. In those instances, the user can make use of the USB publishing feature of MagicInfo Premium.A template is created in MagicInfo Premium Author, and saved to the user’s PC.The Author tool comes with a scheduling utility, and a schedule can be created there, using both the templates from Author, and other media files, and published to a local USB drive.Plugging that USB drive into a MagicInfo Premium display will cause the display to play back the content according to the schedule on the drive.Copy to display or play directly from USBCreate content scheduleSave schedule to USBDesign screen template
