As a team, we reviewed our development plans to determine if there was anything we could do to provide a solution that would assist our partners and customers to communicate key messages to their teams in this time of crisis.
After internal discussions, we agreed to develop a new Signagelive Player that would enable organisations to create and curate digital messages and broadcast them to the laptops, tablets and mobile phones of their colleagues keeping everyone informed.
The resulting Signagelive Broadcast Player is now available for free to anyone, anywhere to use until the 31st December 2020.
The Signagelive Broadcast Player allows for full-screen playlists or multi-zone layouts to be created and published to a weblink. The weblink can then be shared with your team for them to view on their devices. Any updates to the content will automatically be updated and displayed to the viewers you have shared the weblink with.
To help get started, we have added COVID-19 content feeds from our partner Seenspire, which update automatically as new information and updates from the WHO and offer official sources are made available.
WHAT IS A BROADCAST PLAYER LICENCE?
It combines the capabilities of our Browser Player and features of Web Content Licence with added support for images (not video). The Broadcast Player can be viewed from a unique URL without the need for activation and licences on each device, it can also be embedded in a web page for those that wish to.
WHERE CAN IT BE USED?
The Broadcast Player will be available for free until the end of September to existing and new customers and partners, to provide them with the tools needed to keep their colleagues informed and updated at this unprecedented time.
