BrightSign – Install OnSign TV (Local Network Method)


  • Use a USB stick or an empty FAT32 or ExFAT SD Card. If the storage device is not empty, the installation process will not work!
  • Make sure the player's ethernet cable is connected so the player can obtain an IP address.
  • You will need a computer connected to the same network as the player to access the BrightSign player web interface remotely.
