Player for Kiosks on Samsung SSP - Quick Start

    Overview

    This article will explain how to run IntuiFace Player for Kiosks on the Samsung SMART Signage Platform. Once Player is running, the user experience is identical to that of Player on all other supported platforms. If you are already familiar with how to use Player on those platforms then you can go from a published IntuiFace experience to running it on the SSSP in seconds. If you are new to IntuiFace, hang in there - it's easy!

    As the only multi-touch option for the Samsung SSP, IntuiFace is an innovation for a display platform that has only recently adopted touch capability. We have worked - and are working - hard with Samsung to not only refine our support but to improve the SSSP itself. We ask that you bring us into your evaluation process early so you can benefit from our knowledge and insight. We are here to help you get the most out of your investment in the SSP.

    Making experiences available for download

    The experiences listed in the IntuiFace Experiences panel are found by Player because they were either:

    1. published by someone using Composer under the same IntuiFace account used to run Player
      OR
    2. shared with the IntuiFace account used to run Player

    The former are listed on the My Experiences tab of Player's Experiences panel. The latter are listed on the Shared With Me tab of Player's Experiences panel.

    A third tab in the Experiences panel - named Samples - references a variety of sample experiences you can download to try out Player on the Samsung SSP.
