Live Display is a great way to inform attendees and boost engagement. Each screen you'd like to use for Live Display must be connected to a device with a stable internet connection and a web browser.

This article discusses the device and network requirements, and gives instructions on getting Live Display up and running on your venue's displays. 📺

Device requirements

  • 2GB or more of RAM

  • Recommended Browsers: Chrome, Safari, Firefox

  • Plug in AC power

  • Make sure the device isn't running other unnecessary software/programs

  • Disable screen saver, energy saver, and automatic sleep settings on the device to make sure it doesn't automatically turn off or go to sleep

Internet connection

We recommend a hardwired or LAN connection directly into the computer/device connected to the display to ensure a stable and uninterrupted connection. The Wi-Fi connection at the venue will likely be sufficient, but we recommend a mobile hotspot or smartphone with hotspot capability as a backup option if any computers lose connection.

Configure Live Display

You have to activate, enable, and configure Live Display before you can start showing it around your event. It's easy to do! Follow these instructions if you haven't configured your Live Display yet.

Show Live Display on a device

Copy the Shareable Link

First, you need to locate the Shareable Link for your Live Display. This can be found on the Socio Platform in your Live Display event under the Manage tab. Click the Get Shareable Link button. In the modal that appears, click the Copy button.

If you can't click the Get Shareable Link button, this means you have unsaved edits. Simply click Publish Changes to access the shareable link.

Launch Live Display

When you're ready to start showing Live Display on a screen, open a web browser on each device connected to a screen to be used for Live Display, paste or type the Shareable Link into the address bar, and press the Enter/Return key.

Now, set each device to project to the connected screen(s), and put the browser window where Live Display is open into full screen mode.

Your attendees will now see Live Display as they move through your event venue! If you need to make adjustments to what's shown on the Live Display, you can do so at any time. Simply make sure you click Publish Changes any time you update something, and the changes will go live on every display instantly.

Now, take a look at setting up the Wall feature so attendees can get to work filling up that Live Display!
