Watch: How VMcast Works

VMcast | waiting room tv

Take control of your waiting room TV

The VMcast service reinvents the waiting room TV. Create your own ad-free television broadcasts using ViewMedica videos, custom informational slides and your own videos. Even add local weather reports, news, live messages and more. Our management system lets you build your broadcast loop quickly, and edit it at a moment’s notice.

Promote Your Services

Show your patients what you do, spotlight staff, or display important information with visual promos. Think of promos as commercials that you create to run in specific areas of your TV screen. INTRODUCTORY BONUS: Need help creating promos? We will produce your first three image promos for you for $90.

Stream Management

Control your VMcast streams from anywhere. Log into your administration area on any computer or smart device and manage the playing streams for your TVs. Great for managing multiple TVs from a remote location.

A Bandwidth Friendly Option

We optimize the delivery of loops to decrease your bandwidth use and improve stability. Your VMcast automatically saves all ViewMedica loop content to your device. That frees up your internet for other uses and allows VMcast to keep playing even if your Wifi connection drops.

Auto Starts and Auto Updates

Set a default VMcast loop, and whenever you launch VMcast, your default loop automatically plays. And updating a playing loop is easy. Change the content of a loop on the fly and your broadcast automatically refreshes with the new content the next time it loops back to the beginning. Or, instantly update your loop by refreshing the loop right from your computer.

Simple to set up

Don’t replace your TVs or buy expensive hardware. VMcast needs only common, off-the-shelf devices to run. Our free app on Amazon’s $40 Fire TV Stick is easy to use and affordable. Or connect your TV to a computer or PC stick device and use our free VMcast application. Our customer support team is ready to help you get up and running.

Weather Reports

If you want to add live weather information to your TV, we have you covered. The VMcast Fire TV app lets you show the current weather data and forecast for your specific location. The current conditions, weather alerts, hourly and 5-day forecasts are smartly displayed next to your video content.

Live Messages

Display messages to your patients on your waiting room TV. Live Messages adds a scrolling line of text above your VMcast broadcast. You type in the messages on any computer, and it immediately appears on the TV.

News Ticker

Keep your waiting room informed by adding a news feed to your VMcast. You choose your own source to get the most relevant and local information possible.
