Being able to very quickly put a page together for display on your noticeboard or signage screens is paramount for an easy to operate signage system and makes it simple to create fresh new content without it being a chore.
To this end the controller features a WYSIWYG page editor that allows you to quickly design a page by dragging items to place them where you want them. This is all done in your web browser so you don't need to install anything.
- WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) drag and drop editing.
- Different page formats such as Poster or Portrait
- Animation effects
- Font name and size selector
- Text colours and formatting including individual characters
- Text background colours
- Text background and image alpha channel (semi transparent text background or images)
- Curved Borders
- Page background colour
- Page background image. Add with a single click from a visual list.
- Z-Index control. Put items behind or in front of other items
- Turn items into links to build a mini website
- Send display pages to screens directly from the editor section
- Save pages as templates
The mini website builder is another very useful feature in the touch enabled world as it allows you to turn text or images into links to other pages.
By creating a number of pages with links in them you can send a mini website to the signage screens (or zones in a screen) that users can navigate to other pages via touchscreens.
While the system has different sections for scheduling pages and adding pages to playlists you can also do that from some basic functionality in the actual editor section so you don't need to keep swapping in and out of different sections.
The editor also maintains state, which means if you go into another section of the controller then go back to the editor the editor will be exactly as you left it. Most of the controller operates like this, so there is no annoying waiting for sections to reload.
