Together, Appspace and MediaStar deliver a state-of-the art content delivery solution that keeps in-office and hybrid employees engaged and informed.

Self-Certified Devices Disclaimer
  • As there are a significant number of devices running the operating systems we support and a range of manufacturing standards, we can only assure the compatibility of the OS and the firmware versions that are actively tested by our partner organizations, as listed on this page.
  • Reference models are device models that partner organizations have tested in their product engineering labs.
  • You may use devices that have similar specifications to the reference models listed, however, we recommend you work with a systems integrator or an Appspace reseller to ensure the target devices are suitable for your deployment type and specific use case. If you do not have such a partner, please contact us and we’ll be happy to make some introductions.

This article provides Administrators with guidance to configure and register self-certified MediaStar devices with the Appspace App.


  • An Account Owner or Location Admin user role with the Platform User license assigned.
  • Sufficient Device Licenses when registering the device, and Content Licenses if displaying premium content.
  • Ensure the device meets the manufacturer’s minimum hardware and technical specifications, as per our Appspace Compatible and Self-Certified Devices article
  • Ensure your network is configured to allow Appspace allowed URLs and network ports.
  • Ensure the device clock is set to automatically retrieve time from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, with the correct time zone for it to sync correctly with the Appspace server.
    • Appspace Cloud servers are configured to retrieve time from an NTP server by default. If an On-prem server is used, ensure the server is configured to retrieve time from an NTP server automatically.
    • Appspace timezone configuration includes time zones other than GMT. This enables users with daylight savings to adjust time accordingly.
