Meraki Display Licensing



Meraki Display does not currently support the new subscription licensing.


Meraki Display is an Apple TV app for live-streaming video walls from MV smart cameras. After the trial period ends, a software license is required to continue usage. 

  • Meraki Display is only supported by co-termination organizations
  • Meraki Display requires a software license, but a 30-day trial period is offered to all new installs
  • Add and renewal are done through Meraki dashboard on the Organization > License Info page

To learn more about Meraki Licensing, please visit these helpful links. The license SKU for Meraki Display is LIC-DISPLAY-xY (x = years).



Meraki Display will only supports co-termination organizations. If your organization is currently on per-device licensing (PDL), you will not be able to claim Meraki Display license; after the trial period ends, you will lose access to video walls on Meraki Display.

License limit

Meraki Display follows a concurrent license rule set. It allows a fixed number of app instances to be online at the same time. This model makes it very simple to install new devices and replace hardware.

  • The license pool is shared across the entire organization.
  • When a user launches Meraki Display and selects an organization, the system checks for available licenses. If none are available, the 30 days trial will be activated.
  • Once the trial period ends, access to video walls will be denied until a valid license is added.

For example, the Meraki Beachfront Cafe needs 2 Meraki Display apps in their store. Next to the cash register and right by the entrance. For this setup, the owner bought and claimed 2 licenses into their organization. Later, the owner wants to replace the entrance Apple TV with a newer model. Because the maximum number of online app instances remains 2, the owner simply has to download and launch Meraki Display from the new Apple TV. 

The Meraki Display app must be signed into using a full organization admin's credentials in order for licenses to apply correctly. Signing in with any other credentials (ie. network level admin or personal email) will instead begin a trial.

30 days trial

For new Meraki Display app installs, even without a valid license, we offer a free 30 days trial. During the trial period, A countdown watermark will be shown on the bottom right of video wall pages. After the trial period is over, you will be blocked from accessing video walls.

Enterprise Agreement (EA)

The following information is only relevant to organizations that are on an enterprise agreement with Cisco Meraki

EA consumption calculation

The Meraki Display licenses follow a concurrent license rule, where license consumption will only occur when an instance of the app is online. 

  • The calculation of EA consumption is carried out by examining the peak number of app instances that were online simultaneously during the past 365 days
  • For example, if in the last 365 days, no more than 50 app instances were simultaneously online across 100 devices, we would only account for the usage of 50 licenses. 

The license info page does not display the consumption number. The "Current device count" currently always shows "0".
