Preferred video formats

Format Video Codec Audio CODEC max Bitrate Max FPS* Max Resolution
MP4 h.264 AAC 40 Mbps 60 (1080p), 24 (4K) 4K
MOV h.264 AAC 40 Mbps 60 (1080p), 24 (4K) 4K
WMV WMV 7-9 WMA 40 Mbps 60 (1080p), 24 (4K) 4K

* FPS = Frames per second

You can upload many of the image formats available, we do however recommend using one of the most common ones.

  • JPG
  • PNG

When it comes to the sizes there is not really any limitations either. But having larger size images means there is more to store and to transfer.

When it comes to presentations they are never as easy as saying "Microsoft Powerpoint". There are a number of applications, two of them being Apple Keynote and Google Presentation (part of Google Docs). Considering they all come in different versions and revisions things start to get really complicated.

Bottom line, what we all want is for the presentation to come out in the Media Station exactly the same way it looked on your computer screen. Including fonts, animations and slide transfers. That is why you need to export your presentation as a movie file before you upload it into our Media Station.

By using our web application, you can easily add to web sites in your signage flow. You can also set the in-zoom you will use, etc.

Stream various media. Includes ready-made apps for streaming YouTube® and Vimeo®. The streams include up to and including 1080p full-hd.

Soon it is time for the next release of Nodeark Media Station ™. Version 2016.5

How to work with the Nodeark Media Station™

One of the most brilliant aspects of the Nodeark Ecosystem and Media Player setup is that anybody connected to the Internet and the Ecosystem can manage the devices and the playlists. Regardless if you are in the corporate offices during the event or onsite the event venue.

So if you are at the event and need to update an playlist, just connect to the Ecosystem web service via ecosystem.nodeark.com, using your computer, tablet or phone and make your changes.

Also this way of working secures that your colleagues in the corporate offices can upload large videos into the Ecosystem on your behalf and then you can edit the playlists to add the new content without the extra hassle of uploading larger files via an maybe slow event venue wifi connection.
