What are the differences between MagicInfo Lite and Premium?

Are you interested in MagicINFO but still not sure which solution suits you best? In this blog, we’ll explain to you what the differences are between Lite and Premium solutions. Since there’s a significant price difference between these two solutions


MagicINFO Lite

MagicINFO Lite allows you to use the software in a simple way. With Lite you will have the exact same dashboard and overview as Premium. Lite is perfect for quickly uploading pre-built content  to the displays. For example, if you prefer to design content yourself in Photoshop, PowerPoint or create video’s, you can easily upload this content to your displays with Lite. You can very simply upload content, put the content in a playlist and schedule this playlist.

With Lite, you can also add multiple users to your account, and you can determine who gets access to what. Next to that, the overview of the Device Management is a bit more limited. Lite does not allow the user to remotely control the hardware settings of the displays. But if you don’t need this function, then Lite is perfectly fine for you!

MagicINFO Premium

Premium allows you to use MagicINFO to its full extend. With Premium you get all the possibilities you have with Lite, plus a few more! Premium allows you to make use of the WebAuthor, which is a great tool for editing content, creating widgets and making use of web elements. For example, if you would like to implement an RSS feed, show a webpage or display multiple pictures and/or videos at once. This is all possible in the WebAuthor. Also, this is where the connection is made with external data sources for real-time data management.

Alongside the WebAuthor, Premium comes with the golden feature of Remote Control. This allows you to control the hardware settings of your devices simply from your computer. With this feature, you can change hardware settings for your devices without having to physically stand next to the display.  

MagicINFO Premium has all kinds of  "out of the box" features that you can use to create smart playlists. That's something that you can really benefit from! It all depends on what you want to achieve, because Premium probably has the features that can make it happen.
