    • 2-TVs that run 1080 resolution and minimum 39"
    • 2-TV wall mounts
    • A computer with 2-Channel HDMI output (or at least two outputs that can be converted to HDMI)
    • 2-HDMI Cables
    • Keyboard and Mouse
    • Keyboard mount

Can I use my laptop or Ipad as a Kiosk?

  1. Due to the limited size of these devices, Wodify does not recommend using an Ipad or laptop as the main Kiosk, but rather as a secondary Kiosk during peak hours. 

Can I use a VGA to HDMI Converter on my PC setup?

  1. We do NOT recommend using a VGA to HDMI converter for your kiosk setup.
  2. VGA to HDMI converter provides for an extremely clunky setup, and its performance has not been tested by the Wodify team. 
  3. When looking at PC or laptop options to use for your Wodify Kiosk setup, we have one requirement:
    • The PC or laptop must have dual output if you are using a 2 TV screen kiosk
    • If you are only using 1 TV screen you will only need one output
    • We recommend either dual HDMI or HDMI and DVI

 

Technology Troubleshooting

  2. Go to Google.com
  3. Search for Internet Speed Test
  4. Tap or Click Run Speed Testtechfaq_3.png

How do I keep my Chromebox from falling asleep?

  1. Make sure the sleep setting or screen saver is turned OFF.
  2. To turn this sleep setting off, download the Google plugin 'Keep Awake' and keep the Sun icon ON

 

Hardware Installation

How do I install my Mac Mini?

  1. You may set your Mac mini on a desk or box at your kiosk setup, or you may purchase mounts to attach your Mac mini to the wall behind or between your two TV screens. We recommend the H-Squared Mini mount.
