Cloud based software from Signagelive allows ICT vendors to cost effectively add pre-bundled digital signage applications to their product portfolio

Signagelive, a global supplier of cloud-based digital signage technology, is demonstrating its full support for Samsung’s Smart Signage platform (SSP) by presenting a System on Chip (SoC) version of its proven technology at IFA Berlin, 5-10 September. Signagelive can be found on the Samsung booth 101 in CityCube Hall B.

Signagelive will be displaying its extensive portfolio of plug-and-play digital signage applications, including its innovative “Food Service Manager”, a smart digital menu board that allows fast food companies to streamline their menu board management processes. “Food Service Manager” gives fast food restaurant owners and associated franchisees the ability to instantly amend pricing and create special meal deals at the push of a button. It also allows them to display nutritional facts, so they are compliant with current standards or guidelines set by the authorities on nutrition labelling.

Over the last 18 months Signagelive has made its digital signage technology widely accessible to different market sectors by enhancing its support capabilities for a range of non-PC devices and developing a SoC version of its core software. It is one of the few software companies that is not dependant on onsite media players to run smart signage applications because its offering is cloud-based, requiring simply an Internet connection.

Signagelive was also one of the first companies to develop a commercial offering to support Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform. As such, all Samsung displays, irrespective of size, are fully compatible with Signagelive software, which is available on a license-per-display basis.

Signagelive’s SoC software version replicates the functionality of its core PC display software, giving digital signage technology users access to Windows-grade capabilities on non-PC devices. It supports multiple content formats including static images, streaming video, IPTV, web pages and RSS feeds and integrates seamlessly with QR code technology and social media widgets. Digital signage content can be managed by a range of devices, including Smartphones and Tablets.

By eliminating the need for external media players, Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform, powered by Signagelive, reduces the cost of a digital signage installation by a minimum of $500 while offering savings of up to 50% on the on-going running costs for power and maintenance.

Says Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive;

“Smart Signage technology has the potential to revolutionise digital signage because onsite media players are no longer needed, resulting in huge savings for end users. So long as they have power and an Internet connection they can use our cloud-based software and monitoring tools to run dynamic digital signage applications at the push of a button and increase overall revenue as a result.”
