The Taiwanese digital signage manufacturer Cayin Technology brings an entry-level content management server, CMS-20, to the market. It provides a complete line of digital signage servers for small to large self-hosted digital signage networks.
CMS-20 is designed to manage projects involving less than 20 media players. It is said to help administrators perform effective central management, but also broadcast live streaming video to provide real-time entertainment for digital signage networks.
With the embedded web-based user interface, users can manage the device directly from a web browser without installing any software on their computers.
The digital signage solution is developed based on client-server architecture. Administrators can use a CMS-20 server to create a maximum of two-layer groups and manage all SMP digital signage players systematically. Playlists can be edited and scheduled on a weekly basis or as a one-time event. SMP players will playback synchronized content automatically based on the schedule assigned by the CMS server.
CMS-20 can also manage a maximum of 2 video signals per server and up to 64 inputs for the whole system. It can transmit streaming data to CAYIN’s digital signage players by means of LAN broadcasting, multi-casting, or uni-casting, and broadcast live streaming videos, such as live shows, sport games, and TV news, over the digital signage network.
Sending emergency messages instantly to all screens is possible as well. Administrators can activate the alert mechanism and broadcast emergency messages to a particular group or to all groups. Emergency messages can be presented in many formats, such as texts, images, video, HTML.
