This allows the device to continue playing back its cached data, minimizing interruptions for your audience.

Built in Watchdog

The purpose of a digital signage watchdog is to monitor the entire OS and application and take corrective action if it becomes unresponsive or fails to perform as expected. It works by running in the background and periodically checking if the system or application is still running properly. If the watchdog detects a problem, such as an unresponsive program or a system crash, it can automatically take corrective action, such as restarting the presentation or rebooting the system. It ensures that your digital signage system remains operational, even in the event of unexpected errors or failures.

Best of all you will receive the entire health of your devices in the SignStudio so you can have full remote control on each one of your mediaDROID+ deployed in the field. The Watchdog will make sure that there is zero interruption for your captive audience thus delivering a reliable and solid experience.
