MediaBridge Overview

MediaBridge Description

The MediaBridge is the foundation and intelligence behind your digital signage, security and distribution. It also provides you with the flexibility to adapt your network to any operating system, application, or content source.

MediaBridge Requirements

  • Outbound network communication to the Industry Weapon data centers:
    Data Center IP Addresses: 209.166.158.64/27 | 209.143.67.192/27
    Required Ports: Please reference the relevant topology for your media player(s)
  • Account ID, Account Pin, and Zone ID are required during the first time setup of your MediaBridge.

Accessing Your MediaBridge

Your MediaBridge has a web interface which is used to edit its account and/or networking configurations, as well as view logs, and send power/restart commands. This interface can be accessed by opening a web browser on a computer that is on the same network as your MediaBridge. In the web browser, navigate to the IP address of your MediaBridge and login using Username: admin Password: default to access its web interface.

MediaBridge Dashboard

The Dashboard is the first page you will see after logging into your MediaBridge. This is the main hub for the MediaBridge, as well as where you can see a quick overview of its currently assigned networking and account information.

This page will also run a self-test of your MediaBridge’s outbound connection to our data centers. You will either receive a green or a red message showing the results of the connection test.
