InfoCaster Online™ is an ideal administrative tool for large digital signage networks where multiple users of varying skill levels can remotely update content to specific screens. It operates on a Web server that runs on the InfoCaster network, interfacing directly with the InfoCaster Manager™ network management component for managing content across multiple displays. Users can log onto the Web server through an authenticated browser to see only the players and groups of players assigned to them, and the regions in which they have permission to add, delete, edit and schedule stills and video content.
Educational facilities, casinos, amusement parks, banks, corporations and retail chains are among the many businesses where InfoCaster Online™ can serve as a valuable addition to their digital signage system.
A key component of Harris Digital Signage™ solutions, InfoCaster™ offers a complete suite of products for creating, scheduling, distributing, playing and reporting live video and graphics. Users can acquire or create digital content and manage it throughout the entire delivery chain — from a central site or multiple remote locations — on a TCP/IP network. InfoCaster Creator™ enables easy acquisition and content creation of graphics, live video and dynamic data content, while InfoCaster Manager™ and InfoCaster Player™ devices synchronize and deliver content from multiple sources to thousands of remote displays spread over a nationwide network, addressing individual messaging display requirements. Advanced management, scheduling and monitoring tools give users unprecedented control and flexibility over the enterprise network.
