Xibo supports a wide variety of Media which can be categorised into 2 different types:

  1. Library Media
  2. Layout Media

Library Media

Library Media is file-based Media that is uploaded and stored in the CMS Library for use on one or multiple Layouts.

From v3.1.0 integration with Pixaby allows for Images and Videos to be selected when adding content to Layouts using Library Searches. Selections will be automatically added to the Library!

Examples of Library Media are:

  • Images
  • Videos
  • Fonts

Library Media is administered from Media under the Library section of the Menu.

DataSets and Menu Boards are a special type of Library Media which are used to represent tabular data.

Layout Media

Layout Media is created and stored directly on a Layout. This Media cannot be reused and exists on only 1 Playlist specific to a particular Layout.

Examples of Layout Media are:

  • Text
  • Ticker
  • Embedded Content

Please be aware: Xibo takes no measures to control what content is put on your Displays. It is your responsibility to ensure that your content is appropriate material for your desired audience. Content must be appropriately attributed if you do not own the rights to it.
