This tutorial introduces typical settings when the site is used for corporations.

Use in public places

The following are setting examples that allow BRAVIA Professional Display to be used securely in digital signage applications at commercial facilities and in public places such as company reception areas and showrooms that are open to the general public.

1) Disable accessing of the setup menu    

Normally, the display can be operated by a remote control if available. So, in some cases, it is possible that settings may be changed to settings that you would not prefer. In cases like this, display of the setup screen can be disabled by operating in the Pro mode to prevent unwanted settings from being set.

Pro mode setting method

A PIN for restoring the Pro mode to the Pro Setting mode can be set. By setting a PIN, changing of modes by those who know how to can be prevented.

Note: The following settings can be made in the Pro mode.

  • Sync Menu

2) Restriction of remote control use

Use of buttons on the remote control and display unit can be restricted, and turning the power ON/OFF and changing the image quality mode and volume by the remote control can be restricted.

Turn the power ON at a fixed time and display specific content

When used in a company, hospital receptions, or conference rooms, the display is sometimes operated to turn ON at fixed times and display specific content. The following introduces handy settings during that operation.

1) Set the time

The time function is not available for the display unit of BRAVIA BZ/BU series. This is why NTP server settings are made. This enables time-based operations to be set.
