Network Maintenance

We will be upgrading our network throughout the next few days and you may experience periodic website downtime. This will not affect your player devices or disrupt your existing signage in any way. With this upgrade we hope to provide better service with greater bandwidth, faster website access, and faster player updates. Thanks for your patience!

Merge Tags!

Now available throughout the platform is a set of merge tags which provide a powerful method of customization for templates and playlists. Merge tags are simply special text tags which can be placed in your template module properties or even in playlists. These tags then get substituted for actual live data when the content gets deployed to your various player devices.

A simple example of how this feature can be utilized is with the template weather module. By inserting this tag: *|DEVICE.LOCATION.POSTALCODE|*  in the Location field of your weather module, you've essentially generalized the weather for all of your players across your network. This means each player will now use it's own specific postal code to determine the weather.
