Appspace App for Devices
The Appspace App for Devices supports a multitude of industry-leading device platforms and operating systems such as Android, Windows, etc, that meet different business requirements including playback performance, physical dimensions, hardware features, content delivery modes (streaming or caching), and general workplace experiences.
Designed primarily for the workspace experience, the Appspace App for Devices is ideal for the following solutions:
- Digital signage on single or multiple display screens, video walls, and media players.
- Room scheduling on tablets, desk pucks, or interactive display panels.
- Interactive touch-screen kiosks for visitor invitations, wayfinding, and employee directories.
- Enterprise TVs for displaying channels and live streams on system-on-chip (SOC) TVs.
Most of these industry-leading devices come with internal storage, allowing content from Appspace to be cached.
Partner Self-Certified devices are the latest addition to the certification program that falls between Appspace Certified and Appspace Compatible devices. These devices are developed by hardware partners and demonstrate compatibility with the Appspace App.
In this certification level, the hardware partner takes the responsibility of certifying devices for one or more specific use cases by completing a series of test scenarios defined by Appspace. Partner Self-Certified devices adhere to the same standards of quality and performance as internally certified devices. However, it may lack certain integrated functionalities specific to partners, such as unique identification within the Appspace console, LED control, occupancy, or other sensor support.
Additionally, as part of a mutual support agreement, the hardware partner has been qualified to provide application-level support for Appspace on their devices. Hardware partners assume the primary responsibility for supporting customers and addressing any issues that may arise, as Appspace support teams will not have these self-certified devices on hand for troubleshooting.
Philips Professional Display Solutions (Philips PDS)
Appspace Compatible devices represent the initial certification level for hardware partners aiming to introduce their hardware solutions to the market. These devices fulfill the minimum requirements for running Appspace App on approved operating systems.
While compatible devices have not undergone extensive testing, they offer a fundamental level of functionality.
