Carousel Cloud now offers Express Players. Unlike media players, Express players are licensed in bulk so they can deliver your content to entire school districts, college student bodies, multinational corporations etc. using devices that you already have. Express players give you the ability to reach your Carousel Cloud audience regardless of their physical location on a variety of commonly used devices such as Tablets, Screen Savers, and embedded on your Website. An Express Player configuration can be viewed on tablets, used as macOS Screen Savers, or Embedded on your website. Express players support most Carousel Cloud features with the following exceptions:
Uploaded Video is not supported and will be skipped
Video Block Content is not supported and will be skipped
Live Streaming Bulletins are not supported and will be skipped
Interactive bulletins are not supported and will be skipped
Web bulletins will display as snapshots as opposed to a live site.
Please note that Express players are an add on feature that may not be included with your subscription. Please contact your Customer Success Manager for more information.

Configure > Players > Express Players. From there you will select the option to

What constitutes a “Unique Endpoint”?
You can view the number of configured express players, the monthly count of unique endpoints, and a breakdown of the types of express players in use within the Carousel Player Dashboard.
*Should you forcibly clear your devices local storage, the token will need to be regenerated and will count as a new endpoint. If using multiple different web browsers on the same device, each will count as one endpoint.
