by Alex

Posted on 10/17 at 01:29 PM

UCView has been working closely with Samsung to bring the most cutting edge features of UCView’s software to a fourth-generation Smart Signage Platform (SSSP V4.0) powered by Tizen OS. Previous UCView for SSSP product is now modernized and developed to deliver a much better experience and more satisfaction to the customer. This means now you can stream IPTV directly from any RTP stream to your digital signage screen.

The newest generation of UCView’s smart digital solution adopted the principle of embedding the media player and software inside the digital signage display via SoC (system on chip). Samsung was a co-founder of digital signage solutions with its original Smart Signage series a few years ago, and now with a faster hardware, Tlzen cross-platform operating system and fourth-generation smart displays, the bar is being raised even higher. New SSSP4.0 platform delivers upgraded graphics engine, increase in animation performance by 3 times compared to previous SSSP solutions, making SoC media players fully match PC based ones.

The new UCView virtual player app delivers many features like seamless video playlist, transparent image layering, multi-zone layouts, automated remote firmware updates, automated remote application updates, playback of up to two full HD videos, support for UCView Widget Development Framework and UCView Web Triggers which allow content triggering through UCView API. With an SSSP4.0, customers will benefit from much quicker updates, and the improved support of HTML5 APIs.

SoC has basically become a mainstream. It is built into the majority of commercial displays, and it is just a matter of time when it will be considered a standard. SoC and Tlzen are here to stay, and just like that, SoC players are becoming a legitimate alternative to all the PC based players. Do not hesitate, go head to head with new possibilities.

UCView’s Global Alert –Digital Signage Safety CAP

by Guy Avital

Posted on 10/10 at 10:48 AM

UCView makes it super-easy to spread the word about possible dangers in big places. Take a look at a new app that could save many lives.

Most people have mobile phones, laptops, tablets, everyone is online, we are all connected to a network most of the day, but that doesn’t help that much when emergency situations happened. People in the past didn’t think about it that much, but today, when cards have changed and threats are behind every corner, we have started thinking about ways to overpass them. In this time of information, it is crucial to have the right ones at the right time. There are a lot of glitches that still occur when trouble comes, but they are about to disappear.
Meet a new app that uses digital signage to easily solve this problem. UCView Global Alerts is an application made for Android and iOS, which makes all this possible. Its capability of connecting to UCView servers or UCView Cloud SAAS allows for emergency information to be broadcasted on all of the displays, or just some groups of them, depending upon the importance of the information. This can be done in a matter of seconds, by a simple press of a button in the app. You can activate the warning or an alert, and the usual message on the displays will be replaced by a warning.
Global Alert is very simple to use and quick to respond, which puts it in the first line of defense when emergencies happen. This handy tool is especially useful in corporate building, campuses… all in all, places with a lot of people in a space where a lot of damage can be done.


So how does this work in real life? It’s pretty amazing, actually: imagine a situation in which a campus security guard spots a problematic situation. It would probably take at least a few minutes to get the word out to his immediate surroundings, and even more time to spread it to all the people that are at a possible risk. Now, with Global Alerts, he can inform the entire campus about a threat with just one press of a button in the app. All the displays can show that message and warn everybody.
Everything in the app is automatic and the network operators don’t have to be in their usual workplace, they can broadcast a mass emergency alert using a handheld device, API or remote computer. Global Alerts also allows for text, video, and sound to be implemented into alerts, so it can make them more effective or easier to spot.
This UCView app is a real problem solver. Making sure the word about danger gets to many people at once has never been so easy.  With a simple interface and a fast response time, it is a life saver that is a must under all circumstances.
