As part of the company’s declared mission to make the rollout of digital signage networks affordable, reliable and environmentally accountable, SpinetiX has partnered with German software solutions provider Stinova to offer what the companies describe as “a new kind of entry point into content creation and management”.
Offered either as a SaaS (Software as a Service) package or on a One-Time License basis for those customers who want to run the software on their own server network, SpinetiX says that Stinova’s Digital Media Server (DMS) platform will provide customers using SpinetiX HMP100 media players with a straight-forward and flexible way of supplying content to large and/or remotely located digital signage networks, the companies said.
Because the Stinova DMS is Web browser-based, SpinetiX says that its customers can gain access to simplified central management of content, playlists, users, grouping and scheduling, without making a substantial major investment in PC hardware.
“The USP of our partnership with SpinetiX is that our web-based DMS provides easy and flexible central management of the HMP media player hardware via the Internet or intranet,” said Franz Hintermayr, managing director of Stinova. “Customers can begin with little or no initial investment and simply scale up as their networks grow in size and geographical diversity. Because the DMS is web-based, the management console can be accessed from any location, while our WYSIWIG composer makes playlist creation a breeze.”
“While we offer our own software solution for smaller systems, the Stinova DMS is the perfect way for managers of larger networks to remove the need for PC-based digital signage,” added Serge Konter (pictured), marketing manager at SpinetiX.
“The Stinova content-management solution is now in its fourth generation and is already powering over 25,000 digital-signage screens in more than 40 countries worldwide. By giving customers of our HMP100 complete compatibility with, and direct access to, the Stinova DMS, we have made the setting up, management and phased upgrading of a remote digital signage network easier and more efficient than ever before.”
