Effective Digital Signage is often as much about how content is displayed as it is about the content itself. If you don't grab the attention of a person walking by, your content may not matter. While most Digital Signage solutions can handle basic text or graphics it may not be enough to capture a passerby's attention. With VBrick Digital Signage, video clips and live video feeds deliver action and excitement so that employees and visitors take notice.
VBrick's solutions always provide organizational news, weather, and HR updates to employees and visitors, but that is just the beginning. VBrick's Digital Signage can be used to broadcast live meetings and events like CEO broadcasts or product launches. Schools and enterprises can easily broadcast morning announcements or training. If danger approaches the same infrastructure delivers alert notifications for weather emergencies, security alerts or safety issues. Notifications can be triggered in the System Admin screen, via email, or through an API.
In conjunction with VEM's M ystro™, VBrick's Digital Signage Content Manager supports the development and management of live broadcasts and replay of stored video content. This insures that high value video can be added to any digital sign without special licenses or tools.
VBrick's Digital Signage solution supports PowerPoint slides natively. This enables signage content to be developed using familiar PowerPoint tools and downloaded from the Content Manager while still retaining all of the transitions and animations during display.
VBrick's Digital Signage solution enables anyone with computer skills to easily generate and manage signage content. Color-coordinated style templates, called Theme Packs, are included to provide eye-catching Bulletin and Layout backgrounds, Layout templates, and Clock & Logo templates. This allows digital signs to include high-impact text, graphics, flash content, video clips, video streams and PowerPoint slides. Users can customize the smallest detail or turn to VBrick's Custom Creative & Integration Services to acquire turn-key solutions. Template driven content creation is especially important if users have other responsibilities and aren't working on Digital Signage on a regular basis.
Management of content creation and scheduling for a central site and remote offices is easily supported through the Content Manager and the Custom Roles feature. Users may be assigned capabilities ranging from full System Administration to only creating content using pre-approved templates on specific Signage Players. Content Approvers are able to review and approve any content before it is displayed. This enables corporate standards to be upheld even as workloads and content creation is distributed.
Standard templates are included to enable Bulletins and Layouts to be easily developed. Color-coordinated Theme Packs which provide additional high-impact Bulletin and Layout Backgrounds, Layout Templates and Clock &Logo Templates enable customization without development work. Optional Branded Theme Packs and Custom Content Creative & Interactive Services are also available to provide further customization to any VBrick Digital Signage solution.
With customer-provided PowerPoint downloaded on each VBrick Digital Signage Player, content may be created using the familiar PowerPoint tools. All of the animations, transitions, and high-fidelity PowerPoint graphics are supported on your Digital Signage displays.
Many organizations have geographically-dispersed employees who create and manage signage content for their VBrick Digital Signage solution. Custom Roles enable System Administrators to enable users to perform the functions required and no more. This insures that the signage content adheres to organization standards for branding and messaging.
While System Administrators have complete control of the system, Content Approvers can create, manage, schedule, and approve content. Content Creators can only create and schedule content while Template Users can only create content from pre-approved templates.
Custom Roles for content management and approval
In the VBrick Digital Signage solution, signage content is downloaded to each Signage Player on a scheduled basis over the organization’s network. If network connectivity is lost, the Signage Player continues to display the last set of Playlists and Tickers downloaded. Once network connectivity is restored, content downloads resume without IT intervention. This insures that users won’t encounter a blank signage screen
Mass Alert Notifications allow the VBrick Digital Signage System to send out emergency-specific text, sound, and alternating color notifications to each Signage Player. Employees are no longer presented with generic sound and flashing light alarms. Mass Alert signs are able to indicate the type of emergency and the steps that employees are to take.
Alerts may be triggered from the System Administrator page, via email, or by API commands.
