Our digital signage system is controlled via a web browser for ease of use and access. The control system has everything you need to create display pages and send them to your screens.
Different sections allow you to create pages, schedule pages, create playlists, create scrolling ticker messages, create notes for users of the controller and an admin section.
The system operates either as a cloud service or can be operated on premise via our custom digital signage web server. On premise requires no external Internet connection.
Our web server can be installed on any Windows machine including the one that's connected to your noticeboard screen so provides a self contained system that takes the pain out of configuring something like IIS or Apache.
The HTML5 based control system has been designed to be as easy to use as a conventional desktop application and includes a WYSIWYG page editor that allows you to drag, drop and resize page elements to create stunning attention grabbing displays in no time.
A tabbed interface allows you to quickly swap between different sections of the signage controller, and as each section remains in memory when not in view there is no waiting for reloads as you switch between tabs
This means that a page half completed in the editor will remain in the editor if you switch to a different section and back again.
The images below show the editor operating in landscape and portrait modes for differently orientated signage screens.
The same page as above in the editor in digital poster or portrait mode.
And how it might look on the signage screens
The system also supports a number of additional page sizes for multizone screens. More info is here.
While the system displays HTML pages, you don't need to know anything at all about how web pages work as what you see in the editor will be what you see on the display screens.
Pages scale to fit the zone size
The following image shows the same same page being shown in two different size zones on the same screen. The system simply scales the page up or down to fit (this isn't an exact science, text may wrap to another row if you crop the text container too tightly).
To keep the system fast and easy to operate you can send pages directly from the editor to your display screens without having to leave the editor section, although there are dedicated sections of the signage controller for doing this
