CAYIN Technology Co. Ltd. has unveiled its new entry-level content management server, the CMS-20, aimed at providing a complete line of digital signage servers for small to large self-hosted digital signage networks.
The CMS-20 is intended to manage projects involving fewer than 20 media players and not only helps administrators perform effective central management but also broadcasts live streaming video to provide real-time entertainment for digital signage networks, the company said.
CAYIN CMS content management servers, bundled with hardware and software, are full-featured digital signage servers for efficient player management, content updating, central scheduling and live video streaming. With the embedded Web-based user interface, users can manage the device directly from a Web browser without installing any software in their computers.
CAYIN's digital signage solution is developed based on client-server architecture. Administrators can use a CMS-20 server to create a maximum of two layer groups and manage all SMP digital signage players systematically. Playlists can be edited and scheduled on a weekly basis or as a one-time event. SMP players will play back synchronized content automatically based on the schedule assigned by the CMS server.
CMS-20 can also manage a maximum of two video signals per server and up to 64 inputs for the whole system. It can transmit streaming data to CAYIN's digital signage players by means of LAN broadcasting, multicasting or unicasting, and broadcast live streaming videos, such as live shows, sport games and TV news, over the digital signage network.
Sending emergency messages instantly to all screens is possible as well with the server, CAYIN said. Administrators can activate the alert mechanism and broadcast emergency messages to a particular group or to all groups. Emergency messages can be presented in various formats, such as texts, images, video, HTML, etc.
