NEW: FrontFace 4.1 – with Support for Interactive Kiosk Features

With FrontFace‘s latest release 4.1, the merger of our previous products “FrontFace for Public Displays” (Digital Signage Software) and “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” (Kiosk Software) has now been completed into a unified product.

With FrontFace, you get a universal standard software solution that enables you to realize classical, non-interactive digital signage applications such as advertising, information or reception screens, as well as interactive touch-screen applications such as employee information systems, self service kiosks or information terminals.

Even mixed forms from both applications are also possible with FrontFace: For example, you can implement an interactive touch screen menu and install a traditional, sequential playlist with multimedia content as a “screen saver” that plays when there is no interaction at the terminal.

Thanks to the new layout technology introduced with FrontFace 4, you can now freely design your interactive menu interfaces and use layouts for both playlists and touch menus.

Existing customers of FrontFace for Public Displays or FrontFace for Touch Kiosks can upgrade for free to the new FrontFace 4, if they are eligible for updates & support.

For prospects, there is a free, fully functional trial version available as well as quick-start tutorials, including one for the new, interactive functions!

NEW: FrontFace 4.0 – Digital Signage & Kiosk Software

The new version 4.0 of our Digital Signage & Kiosk software FrontFace is an entirely new development from ground up and brings countless improvements and innovations over our previous products “FrontFace for Public Displays” (digital signage software) and “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” (kiosk software).

However, the most significant change is that both the primarily non-interactive features of FrontFace for Public Displays and, soon, the interactive touch-menu capabilities of FrontFace for Touch Kiosks will be available in one single product: FrontFace 4.

Thus, both classic digital signage applications, and interactive kiosk systems, as well as mixed types of both, can be implemented with a single, powerful system!

In the first step, we implemented the functionality of FrontFace for Public Displays in the new FrontFace 4. In addition to that, we have significantly expanded and improved the entire product. In a second step (around late summer 2019), the touch functionality will be available in FrontFace 4 as well as part of an update.

By the way: FrontFace for Public Displays and FrontFace for Touch Kiosks will not be discontinued but will continue to be available to our existing customers. So you have the choice of whether you want to continue to work with the product you are used to, or whether you want to switch over to the new FrontFace 4. The upgrade is free of charge for all customers that are eligible for updates & support! For existing customers, we have also created a FAQ with all the questions and answers dealing with the new version!

Download the free trial version of FrontFace 4 and find out how easy and simple it is to get professional digital signage applications up and running. Create your own playlist with just a few clicks! But despite the simple and intuitive usage, also more demanding users get their money’s worth: With the new layout editor you can visually create without any programming knowledge, your own screen layouts very easily. In addition, the powerful scheduling provides everything you need to have your content displayed automatically.

Thanks to the integrated plugin interface, you can even extend FrontFace with your own, custom functionality if required!

And as always with FrontFace: No SaaS (software-as-a-service), no running costs or subscriptions and the installation of the complete software is done locally in your environment! You have full control!

Important Update for the Integrated Weather Module of FrontFace

FrontFace for Public Displays and FrontFace for Touch Kiosks include an integrated weather chart module that can show the current weather conditions and a 3-day forecast for any place on earth. The data source for this module is Weatherunderground.com (a company of “The Weather Channel”).

Weatherunderground.com has been recently acquired by IBM and the new owner has decided to shut down operations by 31-12-2018. Therefore, after this date, the weather module will not be able to show data anymore!

We have now migrated our service to a new weather data provider. Therefore it is required that you update your FrontFace installation to the latest version to allow you to continue using the weather module as before (Installation of the latest version of FrontFace on all PCs where FrontFace is being installed!).

Please notice: It is required that you once again set the location for the weather module after installing the update. Otherwise, the weather module will show information for “New York” or another major city in your region as default.

All customers that have a valid updates & support subscription get the update, as always, for free. If your updates & support subscription has expired, please consider a renewal if you want to continue using the weather module in the future. A renewal can be purchased in the online customer account section of our Website.
