Anyone who frequently takes the subway in major cities knows them: the large screens that tirelessly provide those waiting with information on politics, business, sport or the yellow press. Not only do they pass the time until the next train, they also provide brief and up-to-date information about what's going on in the world.
We have therefore teamed up with spot on news AG to enable our customers to offer this service as part of our digital signage software. spot on news is the digital news agency for entertainment and lifestyle for the German-speaking market.
Based on so-called Function the news feed is set up once by our developers. The user can then select the feed as a promotion item. This is as easy as inserting a picture or a video. They can also specify in the item settings which type of news should be broadcast. Available are:
- TV shows
- Yellow press
You can also choose whether the message is displayed with or without a picture, as static or scrolling text.
By default, our player checks once an hour whether there are any new messages. However, if the “Breaking News” button is activated, the latest news is displayed immediately.
Thanks to the Zone-Promotions already implemented, the RSS feed can now either be broadcast over the entire screen or within a defined zone - for example at the bottom of the screen like a "ticker".
News are eye-catchers that attract attention - and thanks to the integration of spot on news, this is now possible around the clock, 24/7.
See it all live?
