Data Capture Engine (DCE)

ONELAN’s Data Collection Engine is a software solution for capturing, collating and re-purposing data held in external systems for display on a ONELAN Digital Signage System in graphical form.
 
The DCE is a software plus hardware solution that runs on a Windows operating system platform. The DCE hardware can be supplied by ONELAN or the customer may use their own platforms.
 
Example applications:

Corporate – Deliver business process critical information direct to employees.
Education – Deliver room booking summaries and availability to installed digital signage infrastructure
Retail – Extract live pricing information from POS systems.
 
Data Collection – from user defined sources including queries:
  • Relational databases – such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Oracle, Microsoft Exchange, PostgreSQL
  • Microsoft Office files – such as Excel
  • Other files – such as .CSV, .XML, .TXT
Data Processing – execution of application specific logic on the data. Sometimes a null operation for example:
  • Check values within a range, averaging etc.
  • Data look-up based on processed data

Data Re-formatting – conversion of processed data into ‘dynamic media’ in a textural or graphical form that can easily be displayed by an NTB – e.g. HTML.

Media Delivery – Depending on application requirements, the DCE will deliver media to the NTB (a ‘push’) or will provide an HTML service from which NTBs can ‘pull’ the media.
