Introducing the Embed App

An ‘embed’ is a code snippet provided by another web property, like an app or a web site. You’ll also often hear them referred to as ‘embed codes’, ‘widgets’ or ‘html widgets’. The purpose of an embed is to display ‘external’ information on a separate web site.

The Embed App is an integration available in the ScreenScape Media editor. The app adds a single layer to a media item. The layer (technically an iframe) shows the results of an embed code that’s added to the app settings. Usually that layer contains a mix of content – text, images, maybe even video – embedded by a third party web property.

Using a Smartphone to Activate your ScreenScape Connect Device

Setting up the ScreenScape Connect is quick and painless. With the proper equipment and a pre-mounted TV, you can be ready to go from start-to-finish in under 10 minutes.
