iDiD software displays scheduled content using the cache memory of the player device, which means that losing the connection to internet does not affect displaying locally stored image and video content. However, displaying html content that is updated from online sources will be discontinued if the player device loses connection to the internet. Furthermore, adding new content or edits to the existing ones cannot be updated on the displays if the internet connection is lost. This is why it may be beneficial, particularly in larger organizations, to monitor the online status of the players.
