Test & Rating

We have created a rating system based on the question you want to know most: How will this player hold up to my content needs? For each player, we tested it using our content-focused method and answered this question for you using a scale of 1-100.

On Find a player you find players we've tested and rated through time and on this page we give you insight on how we test and rate the player.

Calculating The Score You See.

Calculating the score for each player is based on how well it passes the tests above.  Players are rated 0 if the test was not passed or if the graphic stutter. In addition to their points for passing the tests, we also include points for IP rating, WIFI, Ethernet, and other parameters that define a digital signage player.
