Installing the Appspace App on MediaVue SureVue

This article provides instructions to configure and register MediaVue SureVue devices with Appspace App.


Prerequisites

  • The device must meet the manufacturer’s minimum hardware and technical specifications, as well as the Appspace App’s minimum requirements. Please refer to Appspace App requirements.

    Important

    Currently, the Appspace client software for MediaVue SureVue comes preinstalled on the device.

  • An active Appspace account, with sufficient Device IDs to register the device.

  • An active Internet connection.

  • A USB keyboard for activation.

  • It is recommended that the device clock is set to automatically retrieve time from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, with the correct time zone, in order for it to sync correctly with the Appspace server.

    Note

    Appspace cloud servers by default retrieve time from a NTP server. If an Appspace on-premises server is used, ensure the server time is automatically retrieved by a NTP server.

  • Ensure your network/firewall/anti-virus software on your computer is configured to allow access to the following:

    • Google Chrome web browser
    • Network port 80 (HTTP)
    • Network port 443 (HTTPS)

  • On your proxy server, whitelist the hostnames listed in the ‘How to set up networks with SSL content filters’ section in the following article: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/3504942#sslinspection.


Configuring MediaVue SureVue

  1. Click the Appspace tab on the MediaVue SureVue console, and enter in the credentials and the URL for your Appspace server.



    The Server URL can be obtained as follows:

    • Appspace Cloud: Login to your Appspace cloud account, go to System > Downloads via the Appspace menu, and copy the device registration link displayed there.

      Example: https://wxyz.app1.cloud.appspace.com


    • Appspace On-Premises: Use the Appspace on-premises server URL.

      Example: http://appspace-server-URL or https://appspace-server-URL (if using SSL).
