How to Use Playlister

When TVs need to be updated manually with USB sticks, many churches find that their signage gets stuck with the same content for weeks and weeks on end. Having to manually upload a memory stick and change the content can take longer than expected, and leave the members of your church bored, wondering if it was worth the investment.


Instead, downloading software that enables you to control your digital signage remotely, can remove the limitations of your creativity. With set scheduling available, so certain things can play at the same time every day, and options that work without any internet, software will make your life a whole lot easier.

Digital Signage with an Apple TV: Use Playlister

Playlister can help you to export your signage and curriculum across all church campuses so that volunteers can access it easily without the need for any USB sticks. All with an Apple TV.

Plus, you can store all of your church media in one place and schedule lessons to appear on screen at any time so that everything will be readily available when staff members enter the classroom.
