#3: The differences Between MagicINFO S Player Types: S6 and S10
A different, yet equally important aspect to consider when purchasing a Samsung signage display is the built-in player. This is why a lot of people clicked on our blog discussing the differences between the S6 and S10 players. New displays often come with the S6 display player, which is a really popular option.

Nevertheless, if you'd like to have the possibility to create 4K content in Web Author directly, you should opt for a display that comes with the S10 player installed.
