Enplug intros public app store in latest digital signage software release
Enplug, creators of an operating system for digital signage displays in businesses, today announced the latest version of its software, DisplayOS 4.0. The update introduces a host of new features, the company said, including a Public App Market it's billing as an industry first, a redesigned Web dashboard, a new on-screen notification system and various new options for users to customize their displays.
The announcement of DisplayOS 4.0 is meant to reinforce the company's mission of being the universal platform for powering displays in businesses, according to the announcement. Enplug's App Market brings the "App Store" paradigm of mobile computing to digital signage. Anyone can personalize their displays with custom content in seconds by simply browsing the Enplug App Market and selecting from a variety of apps for different use cases.
"Enplug's App Market is a major step in democratizing digital signage," Enplug co-founder Navdeep Reddy said in the announcement. "Until now the ability to curate truly custom content for digital displays was the exclusive domain of a handful of companies. Enplug and DisplayOS 4.0 allows anybody to develop custom applications via our SDK and offer them for public consumption on the Enplug App Market.
"Powering a network of displays with custom content is now no more complex than using your phone," he said.
DisplayOS 4.0 also includes an improved Web dashboard, which provides users a more streamlined and configurable app and display management experience. The new dashboard integrates with the Enplug App Market, and new features such as user-selectable transition animations allow users to further customize their displays.
DisplayOS 4.0's upgraded on-screen interface features a new notification system specially engineered to increase viewer engagement and provide users with feedback.
"We've learned an incredible amount from our customers around the world. We're constantly evaluating and questioning how we can make our product better for them," said Zach Spitulski, co-founder and chief product officer at Enplug. "With this free update, we're making our product even more intuitive, engaging and frictionless."
DisplayOS 4.0 is set to be released this fall, with the Enplug App Market already publically available at enplug.com/apps.
