How to prepare Samsung Tizen LFDs for Databeat OMNIplay installation.

This article describes how to prepare a new Samsung Tizen (SSSP4, SSSP5, SSSP6) Large Format Display (LFD) for installing Databeat OMNIplay. There are some important small steps that will ensure that the system is running smoothly and stable.

NB! Before you begin :

Transportation damages are rare, but an expensive mistake to overlook, so please, before you start, check the physical shipment (cartoon/box) for any possible physical damages (dents, holes, tears, etc.). Take a picture with your smartphone for any suspicious damages. Also, check inside the box before taking the LFD out.

An essential part of the preparation is to install new firmware. Have ready a USB stick where you place the correct firmware on the root directory of the USB stick.

Current SSP Firmware versions

  • Samsung Tizen 2.4 (SSP4)       T-HKMLAKUC-2080.4
  • Samsung Tizen 3.0 (SSP5)       T-KTMLAKUC-2050.4
  • Samsung Tizen 4.0 (SSP6)     T-KTM2ELAKUC-1140.5

The new DatabeatOMNI setup (available early August 2019) will automate the firmware check and process over the air, but we recommend to have the USB prepared, it saves time.

Prepare LFD

A new, factory reset or newly repaired Samsung LFD will open with a Menu.
This is the starting point of this tutorial. 

1. Menu Language

  • Select Welcome! (English)

2. Display Orientation

  • Select Landscape

OMNIplay will rotate automatically based on the selected Channel. If you want the Samsung Menu to be in Portrait, choose Portrait. You can change rotation later in Menu/On-Screen Display.

3. Auto Power Off

  • Off (Recommended)

DatabeatOMNI and OMNIplay will control Power ON/OFF.

4. Network Settings

  • Select Cable or Wireless Network.
  • Change and confirm the network settings as your network requires.

We recommend a wired connection for stability. 

The OMNIplay app requires a network connection to DatabeatOMNI servers to operate (receive media plan, files, instructions, to report back to the server and generally be operable).

5. Clock Set

  • Set current Date & Time

Correct Date and Time is required to access the internet and download the OMNIplay app.

6. Play via

  • Select URL Launcher
  • Enter the full URL address: https://www.databeatomni.net/tizen (Lower case)

If the app does not download, please check that the first letter is in lower case, the network connection is working and that Date & Time settings are correct.

7. Device Name

  • Select Skip

If required, use the DatabeatOMNI License Key.

 

8. Verify Samsung settings 

Got to Menu/System/Eco Mode confirm all settings are set to OFF.

Go to Menu/System/Power Control and set:

  • Auto Power ON: ON
  • Network Standby: ON

 

    That's all, now select URL Launcher to start the LFD. It will connect to the DatabeatOMNI server, download the latest Databeat OMNIplay software, and begin the setup process.

    Configure Databeat OMNIplay for Tizen

    Following will be removed after Aug 2019 :
