Hello,I am looking for a solution to play one video content at the same time on multiple screens located in remote areas.
If I have ten offices countywide and I want my clients in all waiting rooms to be watching the same video.

Please advise,
Thanks,

Depends on the quality you are hoping to achieve. With broadband connectivity, you can use a program like Adobe Connect to deliver good quality video across a shared content system. If you are looking for something more automated, then a digital signage system like Scala or Brightsign may be more appropriate.

If you just want to go in somewhere, plug in your PC, and have it magically stream, then you can get a H.264 streaming device connected to the Internet and setup a live stream from your PC which is being encoded in real time.

It's not really a straightforward process, but there are several solutions depending on what specifically you are trying to achieve.

Thanks for your quick response, it seems very professional for me, let me try to explain my case maybe you can assist with a specific solution.
A bank which has 12 branches countrywide and we want to play the same content at the same time on all screens in those branches, how can this be handled.

Thanks again for your kind assistance,

Once again, it is a question of 'What kind of content?'

This is typically a digital signage solution, such as Scala. I work for a company that regularly implements systems of this nature, and it would be a good start to talk to a qualified professional A/V company that knows how to implement a digital signage strategy of this nature.

If you have more 'real time' video that you want to deal with, then there are other solutions, but you keep responding with a single sentence instead of fully explaining your needs. At the end of the day, you will need to talk to an A/V company about installing and implementing a good solution if this is to be something that customers will see and you want the highest quality possible.

I would think a digital signage solution perhaps cross implemented with a secure video stream may make a lot of sense.

But, it still depends on the details of what you want, not just my guesses.

As an expectation though for a player at multiple locations, with designs which the end user (you) can update yourself, and a dozen location, I would expect the following:

12 TVs - $1,500 or so each
12 players (PCs) - About $2,000 each for high quality w/embedded video
Scale Starter Pack w/12 Users - About $6,000

Installation, configuration, additional materials, etc. will all be necessary. I would expect this to be about a $100,000 job for a very professional setup.

Thanks again for your response,
What we need is to play adverts for our products and be able at a certain moment to play news from local or international TV stations, or documentaries, but all this being controlled from our main office in the capital city.
Thanks for the costing, screens we already have them installed and working independently, PCs also we can avail them from our store with high specifications, so what we many need to invest in the "Scale Starter Pack" and installation do we absolutely have to get someone from a specialized company ?

Thanks for your response to this,

Stay well,
