IMG_20171123_102401

The Samsung SH37F 37″ Stretch Display with integrated System on Chip player can be updated and managed by Signagelive with a mobile or fixed Internet connection. It features a 16:4.5 widescreen with a slim, narrow bezel design (1920×540 resolution). It eliminates the requirement for an external player; which removes cost, makes installation simple and increases reliability.

Full screen and multizone content are supported including images, video, HTML5 content and the display can be monitored and scheduled to turn on/off from the Signagelive platform. All content runs offline for uninterrupted playback should Internet connectivity be lost.

Stretch displays draw attention by being unique and different to 16:9 standard displays, whether mounted in landscape or portrait. Due to its size it is perfect for installation when there is a limited space e.g. amongst products on or in shelves within retail, or above counter areas in QSRs.

To see our stretch display in action take a look at our video below:

Signagelive launches free Calendar Widgets with Google and Microsoft integration, optimised for Meeting Room digital signage

New free customisable Calendar Widgets available in the Signagelive Marketplace enable people and room calendars to be displayed in fullscreen or in a zone on Signagelive supported SoC Displays and Players.

Cambridge, United Kingdom, 15th May, 2017 — Signagelive, global provider of cloud-based digital signage platform launches Calendar Widgets in the Signagelive Marketplace. The new Calendar Widgets enable simple connection to Google and Microsoft Office 365 Calendars with a range of customisable HTML5 templates for both full-screen and multi-zone display.

“Displaying calendar information on displays is now a mandatory requirement for corporate, government and education digital signage applications, especially where room calendars need to be visible in reception areas and outside meeting rooms.” said Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive. “Our free Calendar Widgets bridge the gap between; displaying a Google or Microsoft web calendar on a display and the premium paid-for room booking solutions. In addition, our HTML5-based Calendar Widgets are easily customisable allowing our Value Added Resellers and customers to modify the visual design and layout of the Widgets to match their branding and content requirements.”

Signagelive network administrators can easily connect their Office 365 and Google GSuite accounts to the Signagelive Calendar Integration App and allocate a person or room calendar to one of a selection of Calendar Widget templates available, before publishing to a Signagelive supported display or player. A Calendar Widget can be displayed permanently on screen or within a playlist containing other media either full-screen or in a zone within a Signagelive multi-zone layout.

In addition to displaying calendar information, intelligence integrated into the Signagelive Calendar Widgets automatically updates the style of each Widget. An example is the background of a Calendar Widget dynamically changing from green (room available) to red (room in use) based on the event in the calendar and the time of day. Where a device, such as the IAdea XDS-1078, incorporates programmable indicator lights, the Signagelive Calendar Widget can be configured to change the lights from green to red when the room status changes from ‘available’ to ‘in use’.

Further information and videos showing the Signagelive Calendar App and Widgets can be found here.
