If you're new to Displaying TINT please view the first half of this Introductory Video:
To display your TINT you’ll need a display screen, and an internet connected device that is connected to your display screen. The most simple and effective setup is a laptop computer that is connected to the internet, which has a secondary screen connected via a HDMI cable.
TINT also supports Chromecast. You can cast your TINTs directly from the TINT Dashboard, or even the TINT mobile app! Click here for more information.
Another easy-to-manage solution we recommend is using Chromebit, a small device that runs the Chrome OS, connects to your wifi network, and plugs into display screens via an HDMI port. Click here for more information.
- A hard-wired internet connection will always be more stable than wifi. Whenever possible, use a hard-wired internet connection for the device you’ll be using to connect to your display screen.
- We recommend a minimum of 5Mb/s download speed on your internet connection.
- Make sure that you have at least 20 public posts on your TINT before displaying it. Having less content on your TINT when you display it will likely result in performance issues and blank space.
- Use a modern web browser to display TINT. TINT relies on modern HTML5 and CSS features in order to be displayed correctly. We develop with Chrome in mind, but updated versions of Safari, Firefox, IE11, and Edge, are all supported. Proprietary web browsers, like those that are built into Smart TVs, likely won’t render TINT well.
Displaying through the TINT Dashboard
Once you’ve created your TINT and added at least one content source, you can easily display through the TINT Dashboard (the first page you see after logging in at www.tintup.com):
In the next screen, select "TV or Projector":
Then, click "Trigger full-screen mode". If you are using our Multiple Personalization Feature, select which personalization you wish to display beforehand:
Your TINT will be displayed in a new browser tab. The URL you see is a static, public URL for your TINT, so feel free to save it for easy recall later. It will look something like this:
If you’re displaying to a secondary screen using an HDMI cord, simply drag the TINT to the other screen, and select "Click to enable full screen":
Displaying through the TINT Editor
You can also display directly through the TINT Editor by clicking "Display" on the bottom left-hand side of the page:
Follow the steps outlined above once you reach the next step.
If you’re using your own digital signage software, and can’t remove the Click to enable full screen button, you can remove the button by deleting the last URL parameter at the end of your TINT’s public URL (&fullscreen=true). Your TINT’s URL would then look something like this:
