Cologne, Germany-based software house dimedis has released the latest version of its digital signage solution kompas. The new kompas 6.0 comes with full support for HTML5 and markedly improved interactivity thanks to new touchscreen features and easier integration of external content such as interactive kiosk pages, the company said.
Another prominent new feature is kompas smart.remote, which allows users to interact with the digital signage system through their smartphone, dimedis said. With kompas 6.0, dimedis also has introduced a new design for its software.
"HTML is in our blood and that philosophy has turned out to be the right way," Wilhelm Halling, founder and managing director of dimedis, said in the announcement. "[K]ompas runs in the browser without the need to install any software, and it is the ideal tool to manage content across large, nationwide networks efficiently. By directly integrating Adobe Edge Animate with kompas, we have a powerful content and template authoring tool at our disposal. With Adobe Edge Animate, users can create visually appealing, dynamic digital signage content based entirely on HTML5."
