Flypaper Studio Inc. today announced the release of Flypaper Connect, a family of bundled tools that can be used to create real-time, data-based content for digital signage programs. Flypaper Connect empowers users to easily maintain and update data-driven digital content using existing data sources, according to the company's announcement.
Flypaper Connect drives data to digital signage display screens while creating a two-way bridge between Flypaper software and cloud-based servers and databases. This allows additional opportunities for increased personalization, customization and interactivity for digital signage display screens and kiosks. Flypaper Connect delivers real time content from Web services and proprietary databases to digital display screens based on user preferences, interactions and more.
"Flypaper Connect instantly turns any data source into a potential driver for data-driven Flypaper content," said Don Pierson, founder and president of Flypaper, in the announcement. "With this technology, users can affordably customize data based on their unique situations."
Flypaper Connect, located in the Flybrary section of Flypaper software, includes:
- Flypaper Connect for Google Docs — send data directly from a Google Docs spreadsheet to a digital display;
- Flypaper Connect for Comma-Separated Values — connect to a CSV file to make data available to other components; and
- Flypaper Connect Advanced Data Grid — retrieve and display information in a simple grid.
