New WebDT Content Manager 6.0 Pro Improves User Experience and Adds New Streamlined Features

New WebDT Content Manager 6.0 Pro Improves User Experience and Adds New Streamlined Features

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.

The WebDT Content Manager 6.0 Pro software is available directly through approved resellers and partners. For more information, visit DT Research in Booth 5343 at InfoComm in Orlando on June 12-14, or go to http://signage.dtri.com.

TV One Introduces Breakthrough CORIOmaster mini The industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor

ERLANGER, KY, June 3, 2013— TV One (www.tvone.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge video and multimedia processing equipment introduces the CORIOmaster mini, the industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor.

The new CORIOmaster mini fits up to 12 High Density Universal DVI or HDBaseT ports within a breakthrough 1 RU frame. This allows users to design full-scale 3×3 video walls while eliminating a rack’s worth of discrete video components. The efficient CORIOmaster mini saves up to 10X the power required to drive complex video walls.

 

The industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor

“The radical CORIOmaster mini design allows a 1RU system to perform the full range of demanding videowall processing tasks,” said Sean Burke, President, Nortek Technology Solutions Group. “Like its big brother, the mini achieves stunning performance through the patented TV One Parallel Processing architecture.”

CORIO Parallel Video Processing Architecture tightly joins patented CORIO® video engines with up to 10 independent video processors. This radical design supports up to 26 Billion video matrix calculations per second. To ensure optimal parallel bandwidth, video transfers between the CORIO video layer(s) and video I/O processors occur at an industry-leading 4 Gigabits per second per I/O channel.

This design allows a single all-in-one system to perform the range of video tasks simultaneously, including: real-time video rotations, multi projector edge blending, image warping, transitions, still image store and logo keying. This combination plus the mini’s software upgradeability ensures that customers maximize the long-term value of their video wall investment.

The CORIOmaster mini delivers Real Time Video Quality with a less than two frame signal delay from input to output regardless of video resolution and frame rates. Only CORIO technology can massively parallelize video tasks to deliver the highest quality video possible at ultra-low latency.

Complementing the processing skills of the mini is an unparalleled I/O versatility. Universal DVI I/O modules support the full range of analog and digital formats as well as universal conversion to virtually any HD or PC resolution. The CORIOmaster mini design further supports HDBaseT, 3G/HD/SD-SDI and future Cross-Fade and 4K output modules. This versatility gives users unmatched flexibility to configure the mini to meet every video wall need.

The CORIOmaster mini base unit has a Manufacturer’s suggested Retail Price of $10,995. Come see the NEW CORIOmaster mini on demonstration and display at the TV One booth # 3931.

Technomad Advanced Audio Solution Brings New Energy to Texas School District Athletic Programs

Covenant Communications relies on Technomad’s all-inclusive, outdoor audio solution for batting cages; installation follows several previous sports audio upgrades

BOSTON, May 28, 2013 — Houston-area systems design and integration firm Covenant Communications has gradually transformed sports audio for the Alvin Independent School District in southern Texas in recent years, installing Technomad advanced audio loudspeakers across baseball and softball fields, a large football stadium and other athletic venues to improve quality and coverage.

Covenant Communications extended those audio benefits to the new batting cages at Manvel High School this spring, injecting fresh energy into the arduous drill of batting practice. The Technomad solution here covers all the bases, bringing together two full-range loudspeakers, an outdoor amplifier and a flexible audio control system. All components are completely weatherproof for protection against the heat, humidity and moisture of the harsh coastal-area climate.

“Technomad is the only choice for us in the weatherproof loudspeaker category, but we weren’t sure how to power a system in this situation,” said Shawn Mullins, President, Covenant Communications. “The batting cages are typically designed as a metal structure with a roof, open sides, a chain link fence and nets to catch the balls. We knew whatever we put out there would be exposed to moisture, severe thunderstorms and occasional hurricane-force winds and rains. We wanted to find something we could bolt down, plug in and leave alone.”

Mullins quickly discovered the Technomad PowerChiton, a series of compact, weatherproof amplifier modules that contractors can install outdoors and close to loudspeakers. The series also now includes the PowerChiton BreakoutBox, a similarly designed module offering accessible microphone and media player connections, audio control and device storage. The solution removes the need for a separate equipment rack and power source, with a single cable providing direct connection to the amplifier module.

“The PowerChiton was the only option we found outside the conventional mindset,” said Mullins. “It blends in well with other electrical equipment boxes; most people don’t even realize it’s there. It also completely eliminated the need for a portable PA system. We didn’t want to force coaches to roll in an equipment rack every time students wanted music.”

And the students are certainly getting music. Two Technomad Noho loudspeakers are positioned to the left and right sides, splitting the distance to the center of the cages. The broad dispersion provides even coverage throughout, immersing batters in the auditory experience.

Mullins used Technomad outdoor yoke mounts to hang the Nohos, citing ease of angling as a major benefit. “The yokes allow us to tilt the loudspeakers to whatever point we need, and it also saves us the time of custom fabricating mounting equipment,” he said. “It’s a simple point-blank hang, reinforced with a safety cable.”

Ultimately, the many Technomad installations across the Alvin School District are representative of an organization that takes pride in its sporting programs. Alvin Memorial Stadium is the showcase of these installations, featuring five Technomad Berlin outdoor loudspeakers – the largest in the company’s portfolio – spreading even coverage of intelligible voice and full-range music across the large venue.

“Sporting programs are very prominent in Texas, and this school district has been aggressive with integrating technology into their venues,” said Mullins. “And the Technomads have performed very well. We have had some of their loudspeakers outside in a hostile weather environment for seven or eight years, and we’ve never had any performance issues.”

ABOUT TECHNOMAD
Technomad LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security/military technology industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range weatherproof loudspeaker and now offers nine models ranging in power from 60-watt loudspeakers to 1250-watt subwoofers — most available in Turnkey PA System packages featuring amplifiers, mixers and other signal processing equipment in pre-wired racks.

Technomad Expands PowerChiton Series for InfoComm 2013

Compact outdoor amplifier and “breakout box” series adds new model, more features

BOSTON, May 20, 2013
Technomad comes to InfoComm 2013 with new upgrades to its PowerChiton series of outdoor, weatherproof amplifier modules and breakout box accessories, giving end users and systems integrators more audio options for stadiums, resorts and other outdoor venues and facilities.

The compact and low profile of PowerChiton amplifier modules — available in four power levels up to 1600 watts — enables sound contractors to install the modules on light poles and other surfaces at any height for co-location with loudspeakers. A new balanced input provides customers with a choice of balanced and unbalanced connections, and three new integrated crossover filter options (350Hz high-pass, 85Hz high-pass, and 85Hz low-pass) allow installers to optimize amplifier performance for the assigned speakers. Filter options are selected or changed by moving the pre-amp-to-amplifier cable from one pre-amp output to another.

Technomad last year introduced the PowerChiton BreakoutBox, a companion product that enables local audio control at user-friendly locations in the same NEMA-style protective enclosure. Contractors wire the PowerChiton amplifier modules direct to the BreakoutBox, typically installed at eye level so end users can adjust volume and connect devices on the fly.

This year, Technomad introduces BreakoutBox XL, a deeper enclosure offering three expansion bays for use with up to three Technomad wireless microphones and/or custom Technomad Schedulon master audio playout systems. The BreakoutBox XL offers extra storage space so end users can lock and leave devices following an event, and adds a mic/balanced line input channel that combines into a single jack.

“The expansion slots allow customers to truly have a complete PA system for permanent outdoor installation while adding several integrated source options,” said Rodger von Kries, vice president, Technomad. “For applications such as athletic fields and resorts, audio systems can now be installed anywhere with power.”

Technomad will also demonstrate PowerChiton-integrated Apple AirPlay capability for iOS devices. This allows commercial and residential customers to wirelessly stream iTunes audio files and playlists to any iOS device in range within a PowerChiton amplifier or breakout box, reducing costs and infrastructure associated with traditional wiring and cabling.

Technomad will also show the latest design upgrades to its advanced audio loudspeakers, notably redesigned ports to its popular Noho model to enhance bass response. The new design reduces port compression and turbulence at higher SPL levels, and provides low-frequency output of +3dB at 85Hz.

Noho loudspeakers are available standalone or as part of complete Technomad Turnkey PA System with a powered amplifier, six-channel mixer, microphones, cables and more in a 6RU protective equipment rack. Mounting options include outdoor yoke mounts to simplify hanging, and Technomad’s recently-introduced stainless steel mount. Both are specifically built to survive long-term outdoor conditions, with the stainless steel mount able to tightly lock in Technomad loudspeakers from multiple fly points.

Technomad will exhibit this year at Booth 513. InfoComm 2013 takes place June 12-14 at the Orange County Exhibition Center in Orlando.

Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool Creates New Sales Opportunities for Dealers

iPad-based resource allows Energy Squad dealers to easily specify, source and create proposals for LED lighting projects

BETHESDA, Md. – May 16, 2013 – Energy Squad, the consumer electronics industry’s first full service green tech distributor, introduces the Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool, a mobile resource that allows dealers to easily specify, source and create proposals for LED lighting projects. This unique software program reduces the time it takes dealers to create energy efficiency proposals nearly in half.

“The Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool is a dealer resource unlike any other,” said Jonathan Stovall, president of Energy Squad. “No other tool, resource or app has the functionality to serve as a one-stop, full-support solution for specifying and sourcing the industry’s best high performance LED bulbs and fixtures. Now dealers have access to Energy Squad’s complete LED product catalog and the capability of producing client proposals with detailed energy saving value propositions—right on the job site.”

At the heart of the Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool—created in conjunction with ecoInsight Inc.—is an easy-to-use iPad® app that intuitively organizes specific information relative to each specific proposal. With the ability to enter all aspects of the energy saving equation in one program, dealers can now efficiently collect project data in real time.

Once information about the lighting needs for a project have been collected, a dealer can instantly access Energy Squad’s entire catalog of LED lighting brands and products to specify the appropriate solutions for the setting. Energy Squad dealers also have the added benefit of turning to Energy Squad’s team of experts via the Energy Squad Support Hotline for immediate assistance in selecting the right product for every application.

Within a very short time, the dealer can create an in-depth proposal for the client, illustrating the project cost and payback period, as well as a comprehensive analysis of long-term cost savings based on the client’s conversion to the specified LED lighting products.

Once the proposal has been accepted, the dealer can again turn to Energy Squad to supply all the products for the project, and rely upon the full-service distributor to assist with technical support, even after the sale.

Energy Squad will also host a series of short informative training videos that walk its dealers through each step of the ecoInsight proposal generating process. The first live ecoInsight webinar will be held Tuesday, May 21 at 11 a.m. EST.
