Introducing MagicInfo Premium
• MagicInfo Premium is the most powerful
development in Samsung’s digital signage software
family
• Building on the foundations of earlier MagicInfo
software versions, Premium is a completely
redesigned software solution, built to deliver a true
enterprise class capability.
• MagicInfo Premium is intended to perform against
other mainstream digital signage software packages,
by offering a complete set of tools, including playback
reporting and database integration.
• The scale of MagicInfo Premium networks is no
longer limited.
• Premium is capable of addressing up to 500 displays,
on a single server, across a network spanning as many
sites as desired.

The MagicInfo Premium Process
• The user creates content, by either taking existing files, and uploading them to the server, or
building them into a dynamic layout using the MagicInfo Premium Author.
• The user then can utilize the web based interface provided by the server to manage the
uploaded content, and assign it to various basic layouts and schedules.
• Schedules are then assigned to MagicInfo Premium displays, and the server publishes them
over the network, or via the web, to the display’s local hard drive.
• The MagicInfo Premium Player software then begins playback of the scheduled content.

The MagicInfo Premium Server
• The MagicInfo Premium Server is a web-based software tool that manages and controls
content and devices, allowing the user to organize and publish content.
• The user accesses this software from a web browser, connecting to the user supplied server
PC over a network or the Internet.
• Because the system is designed to be web based, a user can connect to the server and
interact with it remotely.
• MagicInfo Premium Server supports up to 500 displays on a single server, across multiple
sites, with multiple users, and does so simultaneously.

The MagicInfo Premium Network
• The MagicInfo Premium system is designed to
be operated over a network. This is done on a
local network, or LAN, via TCP/IP.
• One or more MagicInfo Premium displays are
connected to the network, along with a user
supplied PC, that has the MagicInfo Premium
Server installed.
• This software is a web server utility, containing
all necessary components, and provides the
user interface via web page to users connected
to the network, from their own PCs using a web
browser.
• Displays receive commands, content, and
schedules from the server, over the LAN.
• All content and schedules are stored on the
server PC.
• Multiple users can access the server at the
same time.
• Multiple displays can be on the same network,
and each is independent.

The MagicInfo Premium Network
• MagicInfo Premium also offers the ability to control multiple MagicInfo systems from a
single point, and tie them together into one larger MagicInfo network across multiple sites.
• This requires the use of an internet connection at each site, with the internet connecting
the master MagicInfo Premium server to issue all control, scheduling, and content.
• Users at each site can connect to, and control, the server software user interface from their
local PCs.

MagicInfo Premium Content
• Additional codecs and readers may be required for certain video, audio, and office file types.

• These codecs and readers may be installed on the MagicInfo Premium display as needed, in
the same manner as they would be installed on a PC.
• Examples:

on the display prior to use.
• To view an Adobe Acrobat PDF document, the user would need to download and install
the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.

MagicInfo Premium USB Publishing
• There are some applications where a network to connect the Samsung LFD and a server PC
is not possible. In those instances, the user can make use of the USB publishing feature of
MagicInfo Premium.
• A template is created in MagicInfo Premium Author, and saved to the user’s PC.
• The Author tool comes with a scheduling utility, and a schedule can be created there, using
both the templates from Author, and other media files, and published to a local USB drive.
• Plugging that USB drive into a MagicInfo Premium display will cause the display to play back
the content according to the schedule on the drive.
