Zoom Rooms Digital Signage Follow

Overview

Digital Signage allows you to share images, videos and URLs on your Zoom Rooms screen when the room is not in a Zoom meeting and you can create Digital Signage only rooms, for displaying your signage without deploying a full Zoom Room. If you add multiple images or URL to display, it will rotate through them and you can designate how long each displays. You can also set how long before and after scheduled meetings the content displays. Room Name, time, and sharing key can be displayed along with the content. Content can be set at a room, floor, location, or account level. 

For uploaded images, we recommend JPG/JPEG or 24-bit PNG, 1920px by 1080px. The minimum width is 960px and cannot exceed 1920px. The minimum height is 540px and the maximum height is 1920px. The maximum image size is 5 MB.

You can also share videos, either by uploading a video or entering the URL of an uploaded video.  Uploaded videos can be in .mov,.mp4,.avi,.wmv or H.264 format and 1GB or less. You can upload 10 videos at a time. We recommend videos have a resolution of 720p or 1080p. The audio is played automatically, unless you choose to mute the content sound for the room.

For Airplay support on digital signages, we support music streaming (such as music from iOS, Pandora, etc.) and video streaming (such as video on iOS but not from youtube due to iOS digital rights management over Airplay).
