Summer is coming, and so is the 11.2 version ☀️ In this particular time, we sincerely hope you and your beloved are safe.
Hardware Status Updates (players, screens)
First of all, we worked to help you get status updates from the hardware you run to push your content on DynamicScreen.
As a reminder, DynamicScreen is compatible with the following platforms:
- Chrome OS,
- Samsung SSSP,
For each of these platforms, there is a DynamicScreen application to push your content.
From your dashboard, you can now view the data specific to the hardware you are running:
These updates are automatic. You can also refresh them manually.
Capture your screen remotely
In addition to the status updates, you can now take screenshots during the broadcast from the dashboard:
Screen profiles: simplify the management of your fleet
The 11.2 version introduces a new concept in DynamicScreen: Screen Profiles.
For those of you who manage dozens to hundreds of screens, or touch displays, on DynamicScreen, it was sometimes hard to set different parameters: stand-by, rotation, interactive mode.
Introducing Screen Profiles, you can now define your settings once and duplicate it to a set of screens instantly:
Metadata: set up your devices
New in this 11.2 version: Metadata. It allows you to define settings for your screens. These parameters can apply in specific contexts. For example, if you're managing kiosks on DynamicScreen, metadata help you set up devices, like payment terminals or printers.
Soon metadata will be available in the Designer, and you will be able to set them as variables. This way, you can use the same template to display different content on two different screens.
For example: "Welcome to our store of Store Name." The name will automatically adapt to the screen.
While this feature is still under development, you can follow its progress on our public roadmap.
At a glance, you can now view the broadcast status of your playlists directly from the general view.
… Or in the details of the playlist:
DS Integrator: Screen View
This 11.2 version also brings a lot of new features for integrators.
You can now access a screen from the Global Search, and access all its settings:
A new simpler view, with all the data of the screen and its player, is available:
You can now associate or dissociate a connected player or screen (Android or SSSP) in one click. Managing your fleet has never been so easy!
That's it for this early summer release! We're now working hard to build the next features. Stay safe 🙏
