Visix Releases Remote Control API and SDK for Third Party Control of its Digital Signage Software2 min read
Visix is pleased to announce the release of its first remote control application programming interface (API). The API and associated software development kit (SDK) are available for download to interested parties. The SDK will be distributed at no charge to registered clients and partners, while the API is licensed to individual servers for a fee. Initial recipients include Omnilert (e2campus), Coastal Carolina University, University of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University.
Visix believes there is long-term value in a content management SDK allowing any number of parties to develop applications or interfaces capable of controlling specific facets of the Visix line of visual communications applications. The first component of this far-reaching SDK is an AxisTV-controllable API for sale and use by organizations wanting to manipulate or trigger AxisTV from an external interface to interrupt playback of regularly scheduled content and replace it with alternate communications.“The most obvious use of this API is for alert notifications,” stated Sean Matthews, President of Visix. “When an incident requiring mass notification evolves, there must be a multi-level response – sirens, lights, emails, text messages, desktop notifications and digital signage messages. The AxisTV solution is one component of a multi-tiered system designed to effectively deliver important instructions, guidance and calls to action.”
Visix, Inc. designs, develops and supports a suite of software applications that allow users to create, import and manage their visual communications from anywhere and to deliver those messages to virtually any endpoint.
The company offers digital signage software, room and event scheduling solutions, and applications for targeted messaging to desktops and portable devices. Each of the products works independently or can be integrated into scalable deployments from a single display to large networks. This comprehensive approach to on-time communications – from concept to delivery – provides systems including software, hardware and distribution accessories, as well as multi-tier service and support options to manage and maintain dynamic visual communications.
