WCM New Content Manager Software

Dynamic Content Management Simplified


Efficient Management of Digital Signage Networks from Any Location

InfoComm, Orlando, FL & San Jose, CA – June 12, 2013 – DT Research™, Inc., an industry leader in the development of information appliances for vertical markets, today announced the release of WebDT Content Manager version 6.0 Pro, a key tool for managing a digital signage network. WebDT Content Manager (WCM) software provides inclusive tools to schedule content files and create layout designs for media displayed on digital signs. With WCM, a network manager can manage how and when content files are played on a digital signage network from any location. The new WCM 6.0 Pro streamlines operations, enhances security, and offers scalability and rich feature sets.

The newest WebDT Content Manager release, WCM 6.0 Pro, offers an improved user experience with an even more user-friendly and intuitive interface, making the process of managing digital signage content more efficient. A digital signage content manager can now edit a content playlist with single or multiple scenes using Playlist Editor, a 3-step process to publish content in a few minutes. The new calendar interface enables convenient management of playlist schedules, with drag-and-drop operation and a mini-menu to edit schedules. WCM 6.0 Pro supports a wide variety of multimedia formats, as well as built-in Widgets, real-time video-in, executable applications and remote URLs, and files can be edited and previewed in the Media Library.
The Widget Editor allows content managers to quickly create or edit content for playlists, and apply common widgets such as clock, date, time and weather to playlists directly.

The new Player tools allows a content manager to create and monitor player groups, and check the settings, download and playback status, take snapshots, and execute on/off commands for a grouped set of media players. The updated Urgent Cast feature now has three pre-set buttons to assign different Urgent Cast content to multiple player groups, and the Urgent Cast can now be in the form of a playlist or widget. When there is an urgent situation that requires immediate broadcast, clicking the preset Urgent Cast button will publish the content as defined to all target players. Another new tool with WCM 6.0 Pro is an open canvas multi-screen layout designer, with pre-loaded attributes for popular commercial display models for quick content publishing with multiple display groupings.

Beyond content management, WCM 6.0 Pro can also monitor the status of each player, track all activity, and generate reports for network reviews and advertising proof-of-play billing. Additionally, administrators can remotely update patch, restart and shut down the player appliances.

For users who work with Microsoft Active Directory, rather than creating new usernames and passwords for WCM, the data can be directly imported to WCM, including already assigned account roles and access privileges.

WebDT Content Manager software is included with purchase of WebDT digital signage single-head and multi-head hardware appliances, greatly expanding the value and deployment efficiency. Also available is the WebDT Software Development Kit (SDK) for customization and integration with third party applications.

The WCM 6.0 Pro release improves the process for a creative, timely digital signage network deployment, and adds enhanced tools for users to deliver the most dynamic and customized communications.
