MediaZone Pro™ digital signage has lineage from our original product, MediaXtreme, which debuted in 2002 as one of the most advanced systems of its day. Today, MediaZone Pro continues the tradition of excellence by running on the reliable and secure Windows® 10. Our powerful digital signage software puts to work a robust DirectX API that easily manages and schedules dynamic media with ultra high-resolution (4K UHD) support of text, aggregated data, graphics, video, and animations. Drawing on over 15 years of feedback from thousands of customers using our previous generations of digital signage software, Keywest Technology has designed the newest MediaZone Pro system 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, H.264, 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!




Our premier digital signage software –MediaZone Pro– delivers the best results with high-performance and quality player hardware. MediaZone Pro is available either as a turnkey solution that includes an advanced media player or as software-only for DIY applications. We recommend our turnkey solution, which is factory tested and approved after rigorous testing on media-optimized hardware that is guaranteed to run smoothly and reliably as a system. Our player hardware options range from a small, thin, wall-mount media player (scroll down for player specs) to a robust rack-mount design for the most demanding applications.

Or, for the do-it-yourself community, you may purchase just our software and build your own system using computer suppliers of your choice. MediaZone Pro Player software is compatible for PCs using Windows 7, 8 or 10. Review Software and Player Specifications below for further details.
