Interactivity...

‘Interactive content’ is a term that can encompass everything from touch screens and lift + learn applications, to motion sensors and much more besides. However, this section will focus exclusively on touch screen applications (whatever they may be) and regardless of the application, things boil down to 3 key elements;

  • Hardware that supports touch interactivity.
  • Interactivity enabled content.
  • A CMS to manage and distribute your content.

Web Pages

Web Pages represent the most ‘Out of the box’ interactive option. Signagelive will support the URLs that you add to your library and publish to your players, and if there is interactivity on your webpage (scrolling, buttons, links or menus) then that will be supported. 

While publishing a web page might be the simplest option, there are some limitations. The player will need a stable internet connection in order to display the page, it will also need a web browser powerful enough to smoothly display your content - As well intentioned as your flashy graphics and links might be, you don’t want to be greeting your users with a loading page. For this reason, anything you intend to publish as an interactive web page is best off optimized for signage display,

Apps

Apps, or Widgets, are the more stable, ‘packaged HTML’ option. They can be created/configured to run offline which makes them less demanding on bandwidth, and can also provide a smoother experience for the user.

An example of a touch interactive app is the Room Booking App available in our Marketplace.

Signagelive have documented a Widget Development Framework to assist you with developing interactive Apps. You can find this here. If you have an idea about something you’d like to achieve then we’d love to talk!
.Exe files

.Exe is the file extension for an executable file format. These files can be used to run a program on supported PC Appliances. What this program does is completely up to you! You can see this type of content in action

A CMS to manage and distribute your content.

That’s where Signagelive comes in. Upload your interactive Web Pages, Apps and Exe files to your Signagelive library and use our Publish section to distribute the content across your network.

Whether you want the content to show as a default playlist, scheduled playlist/layout, or as the result of a trigger, you can find the relevant guides in our Help Centre
Lift and Learn...
‘Lift and Learn’ digital signage enables shoppers to pick up the products they are interested in and receive detailed product information on screen. Lift two products at the same time and they can view a comparison between both products to help them decide which one is best for their needs.
