Instagram Breaking Changes

Image
Instagram has implemented some changes to their API which affect our integration and will require updating any of your templates currently using the Instagram gadget. Going forward Instagram will not allow referencing content from any account other than your own. We have added an option to the Instagram gadget called 'My most recent posts' and deprecated all other options. It's also recommended to un-link your Instagram account from your RevelDigital account and then re-link following the instructions in your KB article here: http://support.reveldigital.com/kb/advanced-topics/instagram-howto

Sorry for the inconvenience and we will continue to work with Instagram on getting more of the content features re-implemented if at all possible.

Picture in Picture, Embedding External Video

Image
The ability to embed external video in digital signage is a powerful feature with a number of use cases. Waiting rooms or lobbies, for example, might have two separate displays for digital signage and live TV. In these cases it would be more cost effective to utilize a single display and embed the TV directly into the signage.


RevelDigital provides a simple means to achieve this functionality without breaking the bank. The only requirement is an Android based PC with HDMI input. Compatible devices are available through us, so just contact us for more information. Enabling live TV in your digital signage template is as easy as adding a TV zone and selecting HDMI as the input type. Most any HDMI source will work including output from DVD players, Cable/Satellite boxes, CCTV, etc.
