System Requirements

Recommendations for Using Airtame

Display:

  • Full-HD 1080p Display
  • HDMI Input

👆 Please note that for a professional use case it is always better to opt for a commercial TV, rather than a consumer one. Commercial TVs generally have better warranties,  and are better designed to be in use for extended periods of time, such as when displaying digital signage.  

Computer:

  • Windows 10 - OS 10.11 - Linux 15.04
  • CPU: Intel i series or AMD FX/Phenom 2GHz
  • RAM: 4GB
  • WiFi: 802.11 a/n/ac

Network:

  • 5GHz 802.11/n
  • RSSI -40dBm to -60dBm
  • Ping times stable and below 20ms from the streaming devices

How to test your network

We recommend using an Ethernet connection whenever possible to ensure the best streaming performance: Why use an Ethernet adapter

Network checklist:

Since both the performance and stability of Airtame rely on the network connection we can't guarantee proper performance if these recommendations are not followed:

  • WiFi AP/Router supporting 5GHz 802.11n/ac placed without any major blocking obstacles between it and Airtame location
  • A wired network connection using an Ethernet adapter or PoE adapter. 

If Airtame is about to be installed in locations with low WiFi signal strength connecting directly to the Airtame WiFi network can resolve this issue. Please note that this might cause a potential security breach or block access to internal services, so please reach out to the IT administrator for advice.
