Samsung SSSP Displays

The following instructions outline the configuration process for Samsung SSSP 5 & 6 (Tizen 5) displays.

The models supported are limited to:

QM – Series

QB – Series

DBJ – Series

If you have not yet added players to the Players section of your Network, please follow these instructions on Adding Players as Engage Channel ID’s will be needed as a part of the setup process.

Once you have unpacked and mounted the screen, connect it to the network via an Ethernet Cable (Hardwired connection is recommended). When you are ready, switch the screen on and follow the on-screen setup guide as detailed below using the remote control that is supplied with the screen:

1) Choose the required Menu Language, and press the ‘Enter’ button on the IR remote control.
2) Choose whether this display will be installed ‘Landscape (horizontally)’ or ‘Portrait (vertically)’ and press the ‘Enter’ button on the IR remote control.
3) Your display will now attempt to detect your network (Internet Connection). If your LAN (Local Area Network) is set up for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol aka Automatic) then the display will detect this and will verify that the display is connected to the Internet. If you need to assign a static IP address or attach the display to a Wi-Fi network you will be able to select the required access point and enter in the required credentials. Note: If no network cable is connected at this stage, you won’t be able to select Wired, but you will be able to configure for Wi-Fi.
4) ‘Configure your TV’, MAKE SURE YOU SELECT ‘I Don’t Receive a TV Signal’ unless you have a coax cable that carry’s TV programming connected to the display and want to wrap digital signage content.

Press the right Arrow on the IR remote control to continue. **On certain older firmware versions the “h” in http will automatically be capitalized.
