Samsung released a new version of the MagicINFO software. Today we will discuss the key improvements from version 8. Hopefully, this will help you decide if it is time for an upgrade for your business.
One of the most attractive features of MagicINFO is the Remote Management solution, which comes with MagicINFO Premium or can be bought as a separate license type, the Samsung Remote Management license. With the Remote Management functionalities, you have full remote hardware control from wherever you are and can completely monitor your set of smart signage displays.
With MagicINFO V9, Remote Management was made even more user-friendly. Now, it is easier to diagnose and address the issues/errors remotely. Users can scan and interact with multiple devices by using Multi Screen control to offer an improved diagnosis. In addition to this, with Screen Monitoring, you can control in real-time the connection and the status of each display, by device type.
Additional security settings have been introduced in V9 as well. A great example is that Remote Control can be disabled from the server, which means that it’s not possible to watch the displays remotely, for security reasons.
Connect S10 and Flip 4/Flip 4 Pro
One of the main benefits of choosing Samsung and MagicINFO is the in-depth hardware control. A range of hardware devices can be accommodated with MagicINFO: from stand-alone to videowall, from outdoor displays to LEDs. MagicINFO 9 now offers full support for the S10 player. In plus, MagicINFO V9 supports connecting to the newest displays, Samsung Flip 4 and Flip 4 Pro.With the introduction of the displays that feature the latest S10 players in combination with V9, more extensive features, and security options are introduced too. Additional security options have become available, such as Bluetooth lock.
Better SW firmware deployment
Another feature of MagicINFO V9 is the enhancement of how you can deploy SW firmware updates. MagicINFO V9 was enhanced to display, select, and distribute the devices compatible with the firmware files uploaded during deployment. Suppose you’ve ever experienced strange, unexplainable issues with how your content is displayed. In that case, it might be time for a checkup, to see if the displays in your MagicINFO account could benefit from a firmware update.

Increased security and user rights improvement
Nowadays, security is one of the biggest concerns regarding data. This brings us to other additional improvements brought by MagicINFO V9: increased security and better user rights. The first is possible because of the device's built-in Knox security and the extensive security settings the MagicINFO server provides (like Bluetooth and input source lock). Next to that users can be more restricted in user access and by setting your password policy you can ensure that people who don’t have access will stay out of your account.
New Web Author features
Another improvement is related to the Web Author. Now, with MagicINFO V9 you can have full customization of your content with a variety of embedded components, built-in templates and clip art, decorative stickers, and stamps, these can make your digital signage project more appealing to customers. Next to that, Samsung has now implemented user rights into the Web Author. This means you can restrict users’ level of access inside the Web Author. Users can now be restricted to only filling a template instead of creating a whole new design. Even the GUI of the Web Author is adjusted based on the level of access. That way you ensure that only authorized people can access and change the content shown by your display and that everything is in line with your brand/ corporate styling.
