MediaZone Pro Digital Signage 2017-05-10T16:01:14+00:00

MediaZone Pro™ digital signage is our original system that runs on the reliable and secure Windows®Embedded platform. Our software puts to work a robust DirectX API that easily manages and schedules dynamic media for high-resolution (1080P HD) play back of text, aggregated data, graphics, video and animations. Drawing on over 14 years of feedback from thousands of customers using our previous generations of digital signage software, Keywest Technology has designed MediaZone Pro to deliver the ultimate in playlist composing, scheduling and management while making it as easy to use and familiar as Windows itself.

Our composing software, MediaZone Pro Editor, is compatible with Windows® 7, 8 or 10. It uses an attractive Windows-styled user interface for drag-and-drop screen control that makes managing digital signage content a snap.

Using our built-in template builder, you can quickly design and populate up to five separate on-screen zones with various media like MPEG, QuickTime™ or Windows Media movies, Adobe® Flash® Technology, graphic content, Internet web pages, RSS data feeds and crawls, and then save and send as a completed playlist. MediaZone Pro delivers to your digital sign viewers much more than what comes in the box—it delivers results!




MediaZone Pro is available either as a turnkey solution that includes a media player or as software-only for DIY applications. As a turnkey solution from Keywest Technology, the MediaZone Pro Player software is optimized for and bundled with Windows Embedded Standard 7™. Our hardware options range from a small, thin, wall-mount media player (as pictured) to a robust rack-mount design for the most demanding applications. For the do-it-yourself community, MediaZone Pro Player software is also compatible for PCs using Windows 7 OS or newer.

Our premier digital signage software –MediaZone Pro– works best with high-performance and quality player hardware. You may purchase just our software and build your own system using computer suppliers of your choice, or you may purchase our carefully tested hardware that is preloaded with software and is guaranteed to run smoothly and reliably as a system.
