Singlewire Announces the Cisco Digital Media Manager Plugin for InformaCast

The new Singlewire Digital Media Manager (DMM) plugin for InformaCast allows users to send notification to Cisco Digital Media Players when a broadcast has been sent.

Singlewire Software (http://www.singlewire.com), developer of innovative voice applications centered around secure, fast, and reliable mass notification, today announced the release of the new Singlewire Digital Media Manager (DMM) plugin for InformaCast.
As a way of further expanding the number of people reached with InformaCast broadcasts, the DMM plugin allows you to send InformaCast broadcasts containing text to Cisco Digital Media Players (DMPs). With a correctly configured, active DMM server, you can configure InformaCast to treat Digital Media Player groups as a new device type that can be assigned to a recipient group just as you would a phone or speaker.

“A growing number of customers are using the Cisco Digital Media Manager and Players for displaying important, day-to-day information in their buildings,” states Ken Bywaters, executive vice president of product development at Singlewire Software. “This plugin enables users to easily reach these Cisco monitor displays with a message in the event of an emergency and clear the message when the emergency passes.”

The Digital Media Manager plugin requires installation of InformaCast 8.0 or later and a fully configured Cisco DMM server and Cisco Digital Media Player(s). For additional information on supported models and firmware, visit http://www.singlewire.com/dmm.

The DMM plugin is an inexpensive addition for any user of InformaCast 8.0 with a valid Singlewire maintenance contract. Additional plugins will be released from Singlewire on an ongoing basis.

Singlewire InformaCast is a full-featured, network-based mass notification, emergency communication, and overhead paging system that allows users to simultaneously send an audio and/or text message to a variety of endpoints including IP speakers, Cisco IP phones, overhead paging systems, computer desktops, digital signage, SMS text, social media sites, and more.

The InformaCast platform for mass notification and emergency communication was developed in the weeks following the 9/11 attacks to evacuate federal buildings within 15 minutes. Over 3,000 organizations in 45 countries have implemented InformaCast as their notification and overhead paging system. It can be purchased through registered partners of Singlewire.
