Your Networked VGA Grid can use UPnP and SAP to stream to set top boxes, digital signs, smart TVs and other digital media players.

The following table gives an overview of each option.

Using the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) networking protocol, your Networked VGA Grid can be discovered and can stream to software and hardware media players, set-top-boxes and Smart TVs with ease.


SAP (session announcement protocol) is a protocol for broadcasting multicast session information. Media players can see the announcement or can use the multicast SDP file (session description file) directly.

To stream video outside of your LAN, use a CDN or configure port forwarding on your router. Refer to your Network Administrator; network configuration is beyond the scope of this guide.
