Yodeck Recommendations

  • Recommended: These are the models we recommend for all new deployments. They support 4K screen resolution and 4K video decoding and are the most future-proof option.
  • Recommended(1): This model is recommended for all new deployments for full-screen content only. They support 4K screen resolution though they need tweaking for supporting 4K video decoding. In special cases, where complex Layouts are required (multiple Widgets and Playlists on-screen) or heavy Web Pages with data dashboards are displayed, we recommend using the 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB versions, depending on your needs. The 2GB version fully supports 4K video decoding, while the 4GB version will likely support anything you need.
  • Fully Supported: These models are fully supported, and we will continue to support them in the future. Keep in mind that these units do not support 4K at all. In special cases, where complex Layouts are required (multiple Widgets and Playlists on-screen) or heavy Web Pages with data dashboards are displayed, we recommend using the 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB recommended versions as shown above.
  • Single Playlist only: These models are slow but work fine. It would be best to use them only for a single full-screen Playlist, perhaps safely adding a single ticker. We recommend against these for new installations.
  • Not recommended: These 256MB units will work but will be sluggish and fail at some point. Use these only for testing and not for production deployments.
