Signagelive, UK-based providers of a cloud-based digital signage platform as well as software-as-a-service technology, announces the addition of widgets to its technology offerings that will let its users interact with YouTube, Google and Microsoft.
The YouTube widget, available in the Signagelive Marketplace, will enable videos, playlists and YouTube live streams to be scheduled and published to Signagelive-supported system-on-a-chip (SoC) displays and players. Once added to a Signagelive network, the YouTube widget can be added to a playlist and configured to playback the video, playlist or live stream required. The widget can be displayed permanently on screen or within a playlist containing other media, and the videos and other YouTube content can be scheduled and displayed in either full-screen mode or in a multi-zone layout on a display.
“We have had multiple requests from our partners and customers who want to incorporate YouTube videos within their digital signage content strategy,” says Jason Cremins, CEO of Signagelive. “Our YouTube widget has been developed to support individual videos, YouTube playlists and YouTube Live streams. Our low-level integration with YouTube’s Player and extensive testing ensures optimal playback performance on the range of SoC Display and external players supported by Signagelive.”
The company has also launched new calendar widgets that offer integration with Google and Microsoft, primarily engineered for the corporate facility marketplace for use in meeting rooms.
The customizable calendar widgets enable people and room calendars to be displayed in fullscreen or in a zone on Signagelive-supported SoC displays and players.
