Full Network Menu

 

Players – This is where you add Player records, perform updates and check network status. This also where you can add player Groups, which allow you to build custom Groups and then perform a Player Action for that Group so that all players within that Group can be updated based on the Player Action performed at once.

You will also find the Map from the Players menu. This section allows you to view where you’re players are located on a map. The Map can be set up from the ‘Network’ icon on the Home page.

Encoders – We have launched our own IPTV encoding hardware and provided a device configuration interface within our EngagePHD™ web application. We remain encoder agnostic providing we can see a UDP/RTP stream across the LAN.

Assets – This is where all of your Assets are stored and uploaded. This includes images, videos and fonts.

Applications– This is where you can build touchscreen or other interactive applications based around designs you create in Photoshop or another design software.

Events – This is used where displays are being used for Room Signage or Wayfinding where you want to summarize events that are going on in specific rooms or areas. An Event can be created with a Start Date/Time and an End Date/Time, details of the Event and custom images/logos attached to the Event.
