A few days ago, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of interface, integration, and system products, BTX Technologies, announced that, for digital signage networks, it has been chosen as the exclusive distributor of Stinova’s Digital Media Server 5 (DMS5) SMIL software.
Integrating all digital signage management functions into a simple-to-use server solution, DMS5 is a cost-effective solution that allows users to easily manage players in groups, create content, and schedule play-out, all via an intuitive Web interface. In addition, for PowerPoint(R) 2010, the software is the first to offer a fully integrated plug-in.
“When selecting a distributor for our DMS5 SMIL software, BTX was an easy choice for a number of reasons. It has a very wide dealer network that will be integral in increasing market exposure and sales for our solution,” said Steve Earle, VP of Business Development for North America at Stinova.
He added that with BTX they can be sure its customers will receive the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Through even the most complex digital signage installation, BTX’s knowledgeable staff will be there to guide them expertly. The company provides its customers with the convenience of a one-stop digital signage shop since it offers the entire Gefen (News - Alert) product line.
With a lifetime license and no recurring charges, Stinova’s DMS5 SMIL software is delivered as a convenient 1-click Windows(R) installer for PC servers or as a VMware container for scalable data-center installations.
It includes everything users need to start centrally managing multiple SMIL players — including drag-and-drop layout, design, and zone manipulation tools, playlist folders for organizing content, pixel-exact positioning for accurate playlist creation, and multi-language support.
The PowerPoint 2010 plug-in for DMS5 allows users to import dynamic XML data and encode video up to Full HD in the native codec of Gefen player while utilizing the familiar and powerful PowerPoint environment as a content authoring tool.
