Ideal for Digital Signage or Interactive Kiosks which are controlled and monitored from a central location. Typically used by more advanced customers, and content agencies.
Acquire Editor Premier is the same as the Acquire Editor Essentials, but with more advanced tools and features that running larger or more complex networks of Digital Signs or Interactive Kiosks require.
All of the plugins (Project Plugins, Page Plugins and Editor plugins) are included with the Acquire Editor Premier software to provide time-saving features in the editor (e.g. Automatic playlist creation based upon run time or Demographics, Grouping of pages and playlists, Flowchart designer to check and design the interactive flow, etc).
The Acquire Editor Premier also provides a large cost saving than buying the Essentials Editor and all of the plugins separately
Ideal for Digital Signage or Interactive Kiosks which are controlled and monitored from a central location.
A suite of programs which runs on a computer, typically at a head office location, and is used to develop Digital Signage or Interactive systems from multimedia (Graphics, Videos, Text and Flash) and from plugins. A Page Designer lets you position the multimedia and plugin elements on each page (screen) of content. Plugins allow interactive elements and hotspots to be built to navigate around the pages, or Playlists can be built which let the Player software move automatically through a pre-determined sequence of pages based upon the day, time and date. Triggers, such as GPS, Weather, Sensors, Facial Recognition, etc can be used to instantly jump to pages or playlists.
Once everything is ready and tested using the built-in Player, send the content to the Players installed on-site using a USB thumbdrive, Pushing the updates to the Players, or using the Scheduler and the PLUS! network cloud service to let the Players Pull the content updates.
If you use the PLUS! network, Heartbeat monitoring of the players is used to alert you in case of issues with any Player, and using the built in Site Manager tools, detailed information is available to help you identify and resolve the problem quickly or securely connect directly to the player to save a support visit. Reports of the Players’ activity are available at any time, including a ‘Proof of Playout’ to ensure any advertising or expected material was played when you expected it to.
Ideal for Digital Signage to be controlled from the same location. No further costs to pay.
Acquire Solo includes a copy of the Acquire Player software and a built-in web server so that you can browse to it to design and build your Digital Signage display using only a web browser on your computer with no need to connect to any internet based services or install any applications.
To control the Editor, use a web browser on your computer and browse to the Acquire Solo’s address. Using a very simple to use interface, you can use a template designer to position the multimedia elements (Videos, Graphics, Text, RSS, etc). Then upload the media to the Acquire Solo system and make pages using the multimedia in the positions you made in the templates.
Use the drag and drop Playlist designer to schedule the playback of the pages or to change the active playlist before pressing Deploy to make your changes live and begin playing on the screen connected to the Solo PC.
Signage2Go! is our Software-as-a-Service (sometimes called SaaS) version of Digital Signage. Rather like using a Webmail service (such as Gmail or Hotmail) rather than an application on your computer (like Outlook). Like and SaaS Digital Signage, this has both positive and negatives over using an application (see our comparison here), but for some customers this ability to have multiple logins from anywhere is preferable. Uniquely with Acquire, it is possible to use both an Application (either Acquire Premier Editor or Essentials Editor) and the Signage2Go! SaaS systems together to get all of the benefits and none of the negative aspects.
Software-as-a-Service also relates to the fact that Signage2Go! is paid for on a simple annual or monthly payment so you have no up-front costs.
