In home_page, Image, Media Solutions, Product News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

Navori Labs announces the immediate availability of StiX 3700, its second-generation, ultra-compact Android digital signage media player dongle.

As more and more organizations are finding the need to communicate remotely, streaming video has turned into an essential tool to stay connected with students, congregants, and employees. The good news is that streaming technology is user-friendly, and you may already have much of the equipment you need for a perfectly capable streaming system. If you don’t, our friends at Full Compass have put together a variety of streaming packages to meet the needs of venues of all sizes.
