Keep content fresh

We know how busy our customers can be, it’s exactly why we created our easy to use digital signage solution. Keeping on top of content can sometimes be difficult but our new Instagram feature makes sure that your screens stay fresh, with little effort. Once connected your Instagram posts will show on your TrilbyTV screens with no further action required – you just need to make sure that you keep your Instagram feed up to date!

Instagram Specific Options

There are some feature specific options that you can set while adding your Instagram content. You can select how many posts to show, the default is three. How long posts and image/videos will be shown for, and whether to show videos in full.

Instagram feeds will appear as content in your TrilbyTV Content feed to be added to playlists, categories and embedded players as well as set to show on any screen.

Update players now for Instagram support

You will need to be using TrilbyTV Player v4.6 or later in order to view your Instagram posts. Mostly TrilbyTV Players will update themselves either overnight or after a couple of days. You can check your Player version number on your Player Dashboard and of course the team is here to help if you need assistance with updating.

Embrace Video

You need to stand out from the rest and gain your audience’s attention, adding rich engaging content will certainly do this for you. As technology and social media evolves, so does the way that we communicate. Creating video content is becoming the norm and is the perfect way to interact with your community. It’s good to remember that this content will be on signage screens, so make it short and snappy so that students passing a screen in the corridor can glance, become engaged and more importantly get the message that you are trying to get across. If you are using audio remember to add subtitles so your content works well on screens with the sound off.

It’s all about consistency and looking good – no blurry photos, dodgy angles and pointless posts. It’s always good to have a solid plan around adding quality rich content to your social media.
