Signagelive, global suppliers of cloud-based digital signage technology, will demonstrate a number of advanced Smart Signage software features developed to support embedded media player technology at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam in early February, the company announced.
The features include multizone layout designs, HDMI input for live TV, sophisticated scheduling, advanced device monitoring (including screen on/off, CPU and memory control) and drag-and-drop design facilities, the company said. In addition to its own booth, the company's technology will be displayed in the booths of several key vendor and distribution partners participating in the event.
Signagelive also will demonstrate its cross-platform support capabilities by using its cloud-based software to manage content displayed on Android media players (developed by Dension), Intel NUC PCs (distributed by TDMaverick, the AV division of Tech Data Group) and Samsung's Smart Signage Platform.
Signagelive said its system-on-chip software version replicates the functionality of its core-PC display software, giving digital signage technology users access to Windows-grade capabilities on a range of non-PC devices.
As with its core software, Signagelive's SoC software is written in HTML5. It provides full support for different content formats including static images, video, HDMI input, IPTV, Web pages and RSS feeds. It also integrates with QR code technology and all common social media widgets. Its cross-platform support capabilities make digital signage technology accessible for wide-scale commercial use by all market sectors.
No technical expertise is required, the company said, so users can quickly set up and display content relevant to different demographic groups and manage that content centrally, locally or remotely via a device of their choice.
"Smart Signage technology has the potential to transform digital signage because it removes the need for onsite media players, resulting in significantly lower hardware and installation costs," Signagelive CEO Jason Cremins said in the announcement. "Coupled with our device-agnostic software, digital signage applications are becoming more mainstream because AV and IT resellers are able to create all inclusive digital signage packages appropriate for different markets."
