Featuring live data-feed integration, Quividi biometric compatibility, cloud-based content upload and deployment, and a wizard-based Illumineye Creator, this new release is one of the most user-friendly, productive and feature-rich solutions available today. Hardware also sees enhancements to the line-up with the inclusion of a Windows 10 IoT, 4K ultra-high-definition media player and a bespoke server bundle for SMB users.
Illumineye’s new live data feed gives users the ability to pull real-time information from an Excel spreadsheet sitting on a local network drive (CIFS) or FTP for instant update on the screen. This is particularly useful for quick-service restaurants, for retail pricing and transportation timetables – where data is regularly updated without the need to resend fresh content each time.
Compatible with Quividi’s biometric attention analytics 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 a Microsoft OneDrive account, to simplify content upload and control.
Plug-and-play content deployment is also available with Illumineye 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, high-performance, Windows-based IQB-A media player with 4K dual display support. The new IQB-A model joins the existing entry-level IQ-L HD 720p and mid-range IQ-B full HD 1080p players to satisfy all digital signage resolution requirements. With no moving parts and compact designs, the players are easily mounted on the rear of most screens using a VESA bracket and come with a three-year warranty as standard, while most competitors only offer one.
Frank Noon, VP for worldwide sales, commented: “With this latest version release, Illumineye Digital Signage now provides more features than any of our competitors. 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, high-performance IQB-A media player satisfies the increasing customer demand for ultra-high-definition 4K content.”
Specifically tailored for the SMB sector, Illumineye’s new five media players and server bundle now means SMB users can have a fully integrated digital signage package, including a pre-configured server and players, that negates both the need to source a separate server and the requirement to manually set up the Illumineye Digital Signage Manager.
The complete package includes an Illumineye server (Win10 Pro PC), 5 IQ-L media players, an 8-port switch together with pre-installed Illumineye Digital Signage Manager and Illumineye Digital Signage Creator software licences. “We recognise that there’s a demand within the SMB sector for a cost-effective and simple-to-use digital signage solution,” commented Frank Noon. “Available for a one-off payment of $3,350 USD and with no monthly subscription to pay, our new Illumineye server bundle provides an ideal solution and excellent value for money for the small and medium business users,” he added.
The latest Illumineye Digital Signage software release is available to download now in English, French, German and Spanish language versions.
