v11.2 : Screen profiles, hardware details and metadata

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,
  • Windows,
  • Android,
  • Linux.

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.

📖 For more information

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.

Playlist Status

At a glance, you can now view the broadcast status of your playlists directly from the general view.

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 🙏

V11.1 : Introducing Organizational Units

With this v11.1 we introduce the possibility of creating Organizational Units.

Organizational Units are created via our DS Integrator platform and are composed of DynamicScreen spaces.

Organizational Units allow you to share content between different DynamicScreen spaces. This new feature is particularly interesting for our key account customers.

They can create an Organizational Unit for their group and define a DynamicScreen space for each of their entities or business units.

An Organizational Unit is composed of areas that can be :

  • Manager,
  • Member.

A Manager space can play playlists on the screens of all the spaces of the Organizational Unit.

v11.0: the world is turned upside down, so are our version numbers

In this period of lockdown due to COVID-19 😷, the team is working hard, from several French cities, to bring you our latest news!

This new release is also the opportunity to present you our new DynamicScreen version numbering, we go to v11.0

From now on our version numbers will work like this vXX.YY.ZZ :

  • X incremented for one or more major feature(s),
  • Y incremented for one or more minor feature(s),
  • Z incremented every time a patch is deployed.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

We take a first step in the implementation of SSO on DynamicScreen with this release. Our customers using a Google account, including G Suite, can now use it to authenticate to the solution. To activate it, simply go to the solution settings. It is important to note that this authentication method can be defined as the only authentication method for your space. Other SSO integrations will follow.

Video subtitles

For our customers broadcasting the same video in several different countries, it is now possible to add subtitles. The subtitles will be played automatically when the video is played, in the language in which the screen is displayed. Find out how to set them up here.

Google Slides broadcast

It is already possible to display Google Slides, Docs and Sheets on your screens using DynamicScreen. In order to be able to continue broadcasting these contents despite the loss of Internet connection, these documents are converted into an image before being broadcast. Many of you have wanted to display your Google Slides while keeping the animations. You can now do so, using the share link of your document. Find out how to get it here. Please note that this method of distribution does not work offline.

Shared Drive

Finally, you can distribute your Google Slides Docs and Sheets present in your Shared Drive. To do so, you just have to search for your document, in the same way as a document in your personal Drive.
