True to its ‘Simplify Your Signage’ vision statement, DVSignage has extended the content distribution options on its free DV-Studio digital signage software package to include support for DropBox.
In simple terms, digital signage is all about using the internet to distribute multi-media and video files from a host computer to networks of media players. In other words, sharing files between different computers – exactly what DropBox is designed for.
You simply create and schedule your playlists using DV-Signage’s free-to-download DV-Studio software. You then have the option to distribute them across your signage network by dropping them directly into a standard DropBox folder. DropBox works to ‘share’ the files with any DVSignage media players associated with it.
“DropBox is the web’s favorite file sharing technology and we realised that with just a few tweaks we could adapt it as a powerful distribution option for our DV-Studio and ViewStream Media Player platform,” states Richard Cobbold of DVSignage, “DVSignage is all about offering simple, reliable and cost effective signage solutions – adding DropBox support takes us another big leap in that direction.”
DVSignage have a range of compatible low cost solid state media players (the ViewStream 500 & 505), which are easily configurable to DropBox and which combine to deliver a simple, cost-effective and highly reliable end-to-end digital signage solution for retail, advertising and educational applications.
