Shiny New Template Designer

Image
We've just rolled out a new template designer and would love to hear your feedback. You'll find it right next to the existing designer so make sure you give it a try. We'll be phasing out the existing designer in a few weeks.

Some of the new features -

WYSIWYG! More accurate representation of live contentEditing is now available in preview modeLarger design surfaceSimplified interface100% Javascript. Flash no longer requiredIntegrated RevelScript editorSupport for any resolution, orientation, and multiple displays

New Component Gallery

Free components to enhance your templates

Tired of the same old template components? What a coincidence, so are we! That's why we've created the Component Gallery with an ever expanding list of dynamic components designed to maximize the effectiveness of your digital signage.

We currently offer a number of enhanced weather components, an RSS feed component with support for images, and of course a Twitter component. Stay tuned as more and more components become available.

Supercharge Your Templates

Our template engine provides for limitless design possibilities by allowing any template zone or module to be blended and masked into another. All this can be done with our simple online template editor! Need a hand? We are always available to help design or re-design your templates for maximum impact.

Role Based Permissions

Image
New security options for your signage users

A new permissions administration module has been added to the user management section. This allows for fine grained control over visibility and access to the various sections of the website.
An example application of this feature would be to limit the access of an advertiser to only viewing the media and reports, restricting access to the more sensitive information such as player devices and account information.
Permissions are defined on a per role basis, and each user is assigned a role when created. Roles and role permission levels can be changed at any time.
We hope this provides for a clean and simple method of administrating your signage network.

Version 230 of our player software has been released

This is an automatic update and will be installed within the next few days.

A few of the features available to this version include: New alert system for distributing network wide alert messagesAutomatic display adjustment (resolution & orientation) based on template selectionPerformance enhancements to television, marquee, and slideshow modulesExpanded access to internal player functionality from scripting engine
There are also additional features added to our website as well. A new 'Tools' section has been added to the 'Account' menu with access to the alert feature (more tools to come!). The template designer has also recently been modified to give us more room for growth. This means additional template modules and options are in the near future. Stay tuned!
