dimedis: Monitoring digital signage over webcams11 February 2015
ISE 2015 is hosting the first public demonstration of kompas proof of play at the dimedis stand, a feature which allows the live monitoring of digital signage displays using a webcam.
kompas proof of play can detect playback-related problems that might not be immediately apparent to regular monitoring software, such as blacked-out displays in spite of a valid video signal from the player. Visitors will see kompas proof of play at ISE before its availability as a paid add-on feature in 2015.
The kompas and kompas wayfinding digital signage systems are also on show. Version 7.0 of kompas is now able to control videowalls. Content such as floor plans, Twitter walls, videos and news can be displayed on videowalls consisting of a large number of individual screens. kompas uses HTML5 technology to achieve this goal, turning a videowall into a browser window.
The company is also presenting a showcase of what it calls “the world’s largest free-standing videowall” installed at Messe Düsseldorf’s Entrance North.
