(PresseBox) Schwentinental, 19.05.19
With the compact "Smart Player HD Cloud", the leading provider of digital signage systems for companies, IAdea Germany, presents a digital signage all-rounder. The highlight of the robust and high-performance media player: All digital signage content can be created, monitored and controlled at any time and from any location thanks to cloud technology. For this purpose, IAdeaDeutschland offers a free multi-year content management connection from the cloud.
Equipped with quad-core processors, the "Smart Player HD Cloud" is a robust appliance, both physically and in terms of hardware. For example, the normally wear-sensitive flash memories are optimized for 24/7 operation. The Android operating system used is also immune to failure and compromise through additional integrated security solutions.
The smart player HD Cloud plays content via cloud in high-definition quality. It can be installed effortlessly on site even by untrained personnel: Only the connection to the power grid, to the corresponding display screen and to the Internet need to be established, everything else is controlled from the cloud. This makes the new all-round player with cloud management from IAdea Germany. the perfect media player for companies, stationary retail, the hotel and hospitality industry, the education sector, for law firms or practices, and wherever simple installation with central management, fail-safety and brilliant display play a role.
The Smart-Player HD-Cloud is also suitable for digital signage with signboards or any type of HDMI display at all levels in the company via centralized cloud control of kiosk systems, as well as for multiple displays of information, services, advertising, menus, events, etc. in general.
In short, according to Björn Christiansen, Managing Director of IAdea Germany, "Our Smart Player HD Cloud and Smart Player 4K Cloud are specifically designed for year-round continuous 24/7 operation and also include a self-healing mechanism to remain active without staff intervention. This allows on-site staff to focus entirely on their actual tasks and not have to worry about the technology."
The new cloud platform from IAdea Germany
With "DS-Channel", IAdea Germany has its own native digital signage cloud communication platform. DS-Channel can be used to control, manage and monitor individual media players or signboards in IAdea Deutschland's new cloud generation, as well as to set up extensive digital signage networks centered on the cloud.
The DS-Channel digital signage communications platform, in conjunction with IAdea Germany's new DS-Channel media players and signboards, is free for the first three years, with the option to extend this for a further three years. The advantages of DS-Channel are manifold: All digital signage content is created centrally in the cloud via the content management system and played out from there to the corresponding media players and signboards via the playlists. This means that no technical staff are required on site and content can be created, controlled and monitored from any location and at any time.
Together with the new high-performance media players and signboards of the DS-Channel series from IAdea Germany DS-Channel can be used to set up a central digital signage platform for almost any application across all industries. The underlying content management system of DS-Channel is so intuitive that even non-digital signage specialists can "conjure up" sophisticated content on their digital advertising spaces. The robust media players support all common screen sizes and formats as well as kiosk systems and video walls.
In addition to the advantages of the cloud and its free connection as well as the intuitive content management system, DS-Channel offers numerous other benefits, including
- the suitability for both single systems, small networks up to highly scalable cloud-centric digital signage networks with thousands of sites and displays,
- the ability to play out campaigns with meta-data based scheduling and,
- intelligent, dynamic hot folders based on meta-data tagging for folders or content ,
- the creation of XML templates for importing data sources from other systems,
- support for beacons with distance and motion sensors to switch content,
- the creation of playout reports and overview of device availability,
- support for interactive kiosk applications,
- additional widgets for weather or integration of social network channels and
- a QR code generator to automatically display dynamic links as QR codes.
"The strengths of our media players and signboards come into their own with our next generation digital signage platform DS-Channel. Fail-safety, robustness and longevity of the hardware paired with the centralized and time as well as location-independent management from the cloud, massively reduces the effort for maintenance and care of a digital signage network and does not require specialized staff on site nor for the creation and distribution of the digital signage content," explains Kiel-based entrepreneur Dipl.-Kfm. Björn Christiansen, managing partner of IAdea Germany.
"This makes IAdea Germany's new DS channel digital signage solutions ideally suited for enhancing the brand experience and improving consistent brand communication in brick-and-mortar retail across all industries," Christiansen continues. The same applies equivalently for informing employees in larger corporate networks, for general information, for queue optimization or also generally for entertaining visitors in hotels, hospitals, restaurants or practices of any kind.
