Uploading and Organizing Media

MediaHD Introduction

MediaHD allows you to organize and manage images, videos, and HTML for use in your CommandCenterHD templates and campaigns.

Adding Images and Videos to MediaHD

We have a long list of supported file types, the most popular ones used by our customers are PNG, JPEG, MOV, and MPEG.

CommandCenter will convert your uploaded video files to the appropriate format to play on your device. The CommandCenterHD system automatically converts your video file into two formats: The first is a low-resolution preview that can be viewed in your browser through the CommandCenterHD interface; the second is a device-friendly MPEG that is distributed to the player.
