WallSign for PADS4
WallSign provides an application that connects the content stored on the cloud with PADS4 player through the data provider object.
WallSign allows the user to store any media content like video and images on the cloud, inside a specific area named “channel”.
This application, named WallSign for PADS, that you can get here, downloads the content of each channel assigned to the PADS4 player in a local folder.
Each folder located on the PADS player, will contain the content of each channel, like images, video, and so on, and will be automatically updated when the user makes some changes on the WallSign platform.
