Onelan has released major updates ahead of ISE to its digital signage content management software which include a powerful new shared playlist feature to make managing content in multiple playlists or channels more efficient, a reduction in local storage requirements for System-on-Chip (SoC), and extra security protocols.
Designed for use by large corporations or universities with multiple sites or departments, the new shared playlist feature provides network administrators with a single interface to update content across the network in multiple layouts or channels. In addition, wherever the shared playlist is added, users have more flexibility over enabling or disabling playback. Content creation teams can make content available in bulk, and local departments can choose what to include for playback on their own digital signage.
“We’re delighted to release these updates ahead of ISE which are part of Onelan’s global strategy to invest significantly in the ongoing development of our CMS, ensuring it remains at the forefront of digital signage software technology,” says Hugh Coghill-Smith, Onelan chief commercial officer. “This sophisticated solution makes network and content management even simpler and quicker, while delivering an engaging, dynamic experience for users – all key drivers for our continued investment.”
The new CMS also introduces a selective channel download feature to reduce local storage requirements and network bandwidth usage when publishing. It also includes support for LG webOS 4.0 plus additional enhancements to SoC functionality. This includes streamlining the software update mechanism so updates can be rolled out on mass to multiple players, making management of large networks more efficient. Safeguards are inbuilt to ensure users only apply updates where appropriate and to minimize the impact on network bandwidth by staggering end-point updates.
With enhanced security, the system is now fully hardened to a broader range of vulnerabilities such as brute force password attempts with the introduction of additional security protocols. Network administrators are also able to set a range of password policies to mitigate the risk of user’s credentials being compromised.
