Canva designs in Digital Signage

Canva

Canva is a user-friendly graphic design tool that allows users to create visual content with ease. If you're familiar with Canva, you'll be pleased to know that you can fully integrate Canva.

Please note, the Canva plugin is not yet working on Samsung Tizen, LG WebOS and BrightSign media players.

Using Canva for digital signage offers a practical and efficient way to design eye-catching displays. Canva’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface and extensive selection of templates make it easy for anyone, regardless of design experience, to create professional-quality visuals. With Canva, you can quickly update your digital signage to reflect sales, events, or new information, ensuring your content stays fresh and engaging.

To get started you need an account at Canva, but since you're here we assume you already have that.

When you create your Canva design it's important you start out with the correct resolution, so when you create a design choose Custom Size and input the resolution of your TV, and lock the aspect ratio. A standard HD TV is 1920x1080 and a standard 4K TV is 3840x2160.

When you've created your design, added your pages, and animations, and everything is ready, click SHARE, then MORE, then EMBED, and then copy the URL in Smart Embed Link.

This URL is what you're going to paste in CANVA URL in the plugin.
