The Home Commercial is an image-based advertisement that displays on the Home screen of a kiosk when it is in Self-Service mode and not in use. It is functionally similar to a screensaver for kiosks, allowing you to advertise various features and products when the device is waiting for the next customer to use it.
Operators can use this ADM feature to create new commercials in advance, schedule the dates and times when those commercials run, and control whether the commercials will be removed automatically.
Create A JPG or PNG for Your Home Commercial
Home Commercials can use any .jpg or .png file you would like to display.
The image sizes for Home Commercials are:
- V5: 1024 pixels wide by 520 pixels tall
- PicoPlatform: 720 pixels wide by 1280 pixels tall
Save the desired image on your computer as a .jpg or .png file of the correct size before continuing to the next steps.
