The new version 3.6.5 of our professional digital signage software “FrontFace for Public Displays” is now available. This version again brings a lot of new features and improvements that we would like to share with you!
These are the most important changes of version 3.6.5:
- Availability of custom color values across the entire project
If you define any custom color values in the Display Assistant (e.g. for texts, news ticker or backgrounds) these are now available persistently in the entire project and can easily be reused. This is very useful if you have custom colors defined for your corporate identity and need to access them frequently.
- Custom screen resolutions for the preview feature
Custom screen resolutions for the preview feature can now also be saved persistently within the project for quick access and more convenience.
- Improved onscreen warning messages in case of errors and problems on the player PC
In case of any problems or errors, the FrontFace player application can now (optionally) display a small notification popup that helps you to easily diagnose any problems on the screen.
- Web pages may now also have a transparent background
Web pages can now also be integrated with a transparent background color. In combination with the “Overlay” page layouts, this new feature opens up a huge range of new, creative design possibilities to you!
- Placeholders can now be used also in the news ticker
The placeholder feature that is already known from text elements in playlists, can now also be used with the news ticker bar. You can e.g. use the news ticker for a personalized welcome message for visitors while the rest of the screen can still be used for your regular content.
- Plaintext files are now supported as data source for the news ticker
The news ticker can be fed with custom text that is entered in the Display Assistant or by integrating a RSS news feed. Now, also plain text files (TXT) can be integrated as an alternative to RSS feeds which allows you to easily update the ticker content without having to re-publish your project using the Display Assistant.
- Integration of AV sources (Web cams, video grabbers) is now possible without a separate plugin
AV sources such as Web cams or video grabber cards can now also be integrated without using an extra plugin. Only when you plan to integrate live TV channels, you still require the extra Live TV plugin.
- Improved user interface for the Calendar event source plugin
The user interface of the Calendar event source plugin has been improved for even more convenience. Please make sure that you update your existing projects with the latest version of this plugin using the Display Assistant to take advantage of the new features!
- Enhanced and reworked user manual
The user manual has been improved and some new sections with valuable tips and tricks have been added.
