TINT Player

TINT Player allows you to centrally, and remotely, control and manage what is displayed on multiple screens - all from one central location. This is ideal for managing displays in corporate offices, hotels, retail outlets, restaurants, and more. For more information on TINT Player, please click here.

How it works

1) Choose a Device (either a PC, Mac, Chromebox, or Chromebit) that can remain linked with your display screen

2) Follow the installation process outlined below (varies depending on your device)

3) After installation, assign a TINT or TINTmix to your Device

Once the setup is complete, you will see a "Devices" tab every time you log in to the TINT Dashboard. You can easily manage what is displayed on your devices from this central location at any time.

Devices will run in kiosk mode, a power management setting that ensures that your TINT or TINTmix is never turned off - even if your screens are turned off every night. After the initial installation you’ll never need to visit that location again!

Installation for Macs and PCs

1) Once you’ve purchased TINT Player, you’ll be given a URL where you can download the App. On the device you’ll be using for your screen, open Google Chrome and visit the URL. If you don’t have Chrome installed you can click here to download it.
