Signagelive announced this week support for Chrome OS, including Google Chromebox, a low cost, powerful media and web device, further expanding its portfolio of supported Smart Signage devices and associated applications.
These included devices from ASUS, Acer, HP and Dell, and all of which are compatible with Signagelive for Chrome.
Over the last two years Signagelive has worked in conjunction with major digital signage vendors to develop flexible System on Chip (SoC) software that delivers the same advanced capabilities as its core-PC display software. Signagelive for Chrome, written in HTML5, provides full support for different content formats including static images, HD video, web pages, IPTV, multi-zoning for different media types, image layering, RSS feeds, portrait support and screen on and off control. It also offers proof of play and proactive monitoring capabilities complementing the features available from Google Chrome device management software.
Google Chromebox powered by Signagelive for Chrome eliminates the need for expensive media players to run and manage digital signage campaigns, resulting in significantly reduced installation, operational and energy costs. Using Signagelive’s intuitive content management and scheduling tools, digital signage technology users can quickly create and display engaging content for different digital signage applications.
Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive told us “Providing support for Google Chrome OS is a milestone for Signagelive because of the development opportunities it offers device manufacturers and HTML5 developers globally. Signagelive-powered Chrome OS devices provide management capabilities on a par with conventional PCs but at a fraction of the cost, enabling digital signage resellers and HTML5 developers to create compelling digital signage and interactive propositions for their end users.”
Signagelive’s HTML5-based software is used in a wide range of applications across all vertical markets including; retail, internal communications and education. Signagelive provides all the features required to create, schedule and publish eye catching and engaging content and applications for a single Chromebox to a global network of many thousands.
Signagelive for Chrome, one and three year licences are available bundled with a Chromebox and Google Chrome device management licences through major distributors and resellers worldwide.
