Dynamax and Exterity inject more ‘live’ into digitalsignage.NET3 min read
New live video feature supported by the partnership
Dynamax Technologies are pleased to announce the latest feature addition to digitalsignage.NET, its cloud- based digital signage software. The company has partnered with leading IPTV solutions provider, Exterity to allow digitalsignage.NET users to add live video feeds to their playlist and display an unlimited number of channels simultaneously (such as CCTV, TV or IPTV channels) without having to create separate video networks. These feeds can be streamed from a supported Hauppauge TV tuner (HVR-900H), DVD or video camera via composite or S-Video.
The company’s digitalsignage.NET is also capable of playing IP streams provided by an Exterity IPTV system.
As creating fresh content on a regular basis can be a difficult task for certain companies, Dynamax wanted to help its users overcome this limitation. ‘’We’ve always tried to make our users understand that digital signage isn’t all about PowerPoint presentations, pictures and text. There is a lot of dynamic, real-time content available out there that they can use with very little or no effort from their side. Our collaboration with Exterity is meant to help them leverage this content, while keeping their hardware and operational expenditure low’’ explained Howard Smith, founding director of Dynamax.
The new feature will enable Dynamax users to distribute broadcast- quality digital TV and video over existing building and campus IP networks to a virtually unlimited number of displays without any compromise in image quality. digitalsignage.NET works in conjunction with Exterity’s AvediaStream e3635 encoder to deliver HD or SD, MPEG-2 or H.264 streams from a range of video inputs (such as Blu-Ray/ DVD Players, set top boxes, digital cameras or PC’s).
Exterity CEO Colin Farquhar commented on the partnership: ‘’We are delighted to be working with Dynamax on this initiative to bring live video content into their solution. Integrating IPTV into digitalsignage.NET provides a scalable, enhanced service to users and a visually exciting experience for viewers.”
A step by step guide on how to add Live Video feeds to a playlist in digitalsignage.NET is now available on Dynamax’s Support portal.
