About Screenly

Screenly allows users to display their favorite content on digital signs. To launch a digital sign with Screenly, first add images, videos, or live website links to a Screenly Account. Next, connect a Screenly Player to a TV or monitor via HDMI. That’s it - now users have a digital sign with Screenly. With Screenly, users can manage their digital signs from anywhere. Users can see digital signs on a central dashboard and see which screens are running smoothly and which screens need attention.

It is just simple to use.

Pros

Easy of access, dependability and updating

Cons

It would be nice to auto update playlists by adding a folder so that anything in the content folder is automatically added to the playlist, but that may not apply to all people.

Reasons for choosing Screenly

We chose screenly for its easy of use and the teamwork environment.

Screenly

Excellent

Pros

Really easy to use very functional. The fact that you can time and queue the digital elements is fantastic. The turnaround time from when the media is sent to when it actually plays is very impressive. We are very happy with our partnership with Screenly. The customer service is excellent with a "can do" attitude to solving any operational issues.

Cons

There is nothing that I dislike and at the cost it is better than anything other platform we have used on the market.

Beautiful screens, not-so-beautiful features

Pros

The screens and resolution were beautiful on this product. Additionally, we were able to deploy hundreds of custom assets and playlists in a matter of hours.

Cons

We were siloed in to only using raspberry pi units and there were no transitions between graphics. When we changed the infrastructure of our wifi systems, the support documentation was zero help. We instead had to flash each of our 20+ units manually and reconfigure each on the new wifi. There should be an option built in to the ScreenlyOS image on the raspberry pi to modify wifi configs.

Screenly is simply impressive

Screenly is a software that i love cos it schedules my videos for a really long period of time and I can share my content to multiple screens and in multiple places that has helped solve a lot of my problems. But if the free and the commercial were more similar it will go a long way.

Pros

The fact that I can schedule content weeks in advance is a mazing. Also i can check the status of my screens, and get in control of your signage is simply impressive.

Cons

The only thing I did not like is the fact that you cannot use the free version to know the functionality of the commercial version. If this could be a little more similar it really would go a long way.

Screenly quality is excellant with affordable pricing

We wanted to be able to digitally promote our programs and group fitness schedule throughout the fitness center and locker rooms. Using Screenly has improved our communication with members and has helped us market new programming and training events to our members more effectively.

Pros

I think the features of the Screenly software are helpful in being able to manage videos and graphics so you can promote what you want when you want. It's very customizable.

Cons

When there is a communication issue with one of the screens oftentimes we have to reboot the whole player. Unfortunately, our screens are hung up very high so this is not convenient. I have tried the reboot within the software but rarely works.

Reasons for choosing Screenly

Pricing was the main factor. Screenly was affordable and also appeared to be easier to use than others I was looking at.
