Featuring live data-feed integration, Quividi audience measurement and cloud-based content upload and deployment, this new release is one of the most user-friendly and feature-rich solutions available today. Hardware also sees enhancements to the line-up with the inclusion of the new, ultra-compact, IQL-2 media player with 4K display support.
Illumineye’s live data feed gives users the ability to pull real-time information from an SQL database or Excel spreadsheet within the local network drive, using CIFS or FTP. This is particularly useful for quick-service restaurant menus and transportation timetables, where data is regularly updated without the need to resend fresh content each time.
Compatible with Quividi’s audience measurement software for a smarter digital signage experience that measures audience views and engagement, Illumineye Digital Signage also incorporates a convenient cloud-content upload solution, via Microsoft OneDrive or Amazon S3, to simplify content upload and control.
Plug-and-play content deployment is also available with Illumineye Digital Signage by simply creating content offline onto a USB stick and then plugging into the media player to play. This is useful for environments where there is no or limited Internet connectivity.
While these new software features are designed to improve the digital signage experience, software ease-of-use has also been further improved with a new, wizard-based Illumineye Creator and Content Scheduler that provides a more intuitive approach for even easier scheduling and management of digital signage campaigns.
Complementing these advances made on the software side, Illumineye’s hardware also benefits from the addition of the new IQL-2 media player with dual core processor and 4K dual display support. With no moving parts, an ultra-compact and lightweight design, the IQL-2 player comes with a VESA bracket and an industry-leading 3-year warranty as standard.
Frank Noon, VP of worldwide sales, commented: “With this latest version release, Illumineye Digital Signage is now very much at the forefront of digital signage technology. The new wizard-based Illumineye Creator and Content Scheduler is a key part in our strategy to deliver a digital signage solution that can be used by everyone, not just those with professional IT skills, while our new, highly durable media players support the very latest 4K resolution.”
Also making its debut at RetailEXPO 2019 is Illumineye’s new Android support app. Compatible with the latest Android televisions, tablets and smartphones, the new app allows users to play content directly without the need for a separate media player, while Illumineye’s Manager software provides central management of these Android devices.
The latest Illumineye Digital Signage software release is available to evaluate now in English, French, German and Spanish language versions.
