The latest version 3.7.0 of our professional digital signage software FrontFace for Public Displays contains a completely redesigned Display Assistant application which comes with a brand-new icon set. In addition to that, the overall usability has also been improved further so that the Display Assistant offers you a truly intuitive user experience to manage and create your playlists, maintain your screens and schedules and to update player PCs or player PC groups with just a single click!
But also the FrontFace player application has been enhanced by this update: When loading Web pages, you can now make the player application display an optional progress indicator animation which is very helpful for slow-loading Web pages so that someone who looks at the screen gets to know that the page is currently loading.
The integrated Remote Control Service (RCS) which can be used with the optional Remote Control Plugin has also been improved. You can now use a REST-based API to integrate 3rd party applications in order to start or stop playlists and to set the values of text and image placeholders.
Finally, we added some new, modernized layouts for digital blackboards. Apart from the classic “pin board style” you can now also choose the modern “magnet board style”. The blackboard layouts have also been optimized to support any screen resolution and orientation.
The free trial version of FrontFace for Public Displays is available for download on our Web page. For existing customers that are eligible to obtain updates & support, the update is also – as always – available free of charge!
