2 min
Incorporating MediaManage functionality to the MediaSignage Server


  • Hughes MediaManage Server integration with the MediaSignage Server
  • MediaManage (service allowing for distributed content management) is now part of the MediaSignage Server.  No longer are they 2 separate system.
  • Video OnDemand
  • Video OnDemand is now part of the MediaSignage Server
  • Ability to create custom VOD groups and assign those groups to individual players for VOD playback
  • There is now the ability to customize which columns you want to see for each table.  This is user specific.
  • Favorite items
  • You can now favorite a Content, Playlist, Program, Player or Group.
  • When you favorite an item, it will show up on the new Dashboard (see below)
  • We added a dashboard
  • Once you login, you will see the new dashboard.   Favorited items will show on the dashboard for easy access to that item.
  • The dashboard also has notifications which will list the activity that has been happening in your account.
  • Reports
  • The same reports that were present in MediaManage are also available
  • We updated the reporting system to allow for new reports to be created in the future easily
  • Migration script from MediaManage
  • We can migrate all your content from MediaManage so you don’t have to re-enter them
  • Support for single sign on applications (SAML 2.0).  Okta has been tested and works great.
  • Ability to tell the LG SmartTV to use Internal Storage instead of USB drive


  • Small bug fixes to improve stability


  • MediaSignage Player v8.2 or later needed on each device for the screenshot capabilities to work
  • MediaSignage Player v8.3 or later needed on the LG SmartTV for the Internal Storage to work
