ScreenBeam has released its latest firmware update (version 18.104.22.168) featuring a digital signage capability. This function will empower ScreenBeam 1100 users to better leverage their meeting room displays in communicating important employee and guest messaging, company branding and beyond.
While corporate lobbies have seen a large increase in digital signage installations, there is a growing desire to leverage meeting room displays to further create a unique user-experience as well as delivery better ROI within those spaces.
The digital signage support allows ScreenBeam to stream signage content when the display is not being utilised. The feature is disabled by default and can be enabled from the management interface. Signage can display in either Fullscreen or Framed mode and will start streaming per the idle time set by the administrator. Supported content formats include: HTML5, WebGL, Video Webm, Video H264 and Video MP4.
In addition to digital signage support, the firmware update includes an enhancement to its video playback support for iOS/macOS native mirroring. When mirroring video content from a YouTube app or Safari browser, ScreenBeam receiver will stream and playback the video directly instead of mirroring.
“We are always working on ways to better enhance the use of our ScreenBeam solutions for our customers,” said Mike Ehlenberger, vice president and general manager of ScreenBeam. “By adding this digital signage capability, they will be able to create more personalised, impactful meeting spaces for their employees and guests.”
