Exterity delivers numerous enhancements to ArtioSign, ArtioGuest and AvediaServer

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of numerous enhancements to ArtioSign, ArtioGuest and the AvediaServer. 

New Features in ArtioSign:

ArtioSign Meeting Room

Meeting Room Summary Element

Building on Exterity ArtioSign’s digital signage Meeting Room functionality that displays room availability, this latest enhancement now enables organisations to show more information at a glance, including: the ability to show individual or multiple meeting room availability on displays outside conference rooms; display the complete daily meeting room schedule for a set of meeting rooms; and include simple wayfinding information – all on a single signage display.

The Meeting Room functionality in ArtioSign integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Exchange, Amadeus Delphi and Hyatt Envision Events Management System, and screens are automatically updated when meetings are scheduled, rooms are booked, and the meeting is underway.

In parallel, Exterity has also announced support for Samsung SSSP6 QB13R small 13” displays, making it the perfect solution to display the day’s schedule on a compact display outside a meeting room.

ArtioSign Integration with Oracle Simphony Point of Sale

Display eye-catching, dynamic menu boards in digital signage, which are updated automatically when prices or availability change, ensuring the information displayed is always up to date for an optimised customer experience.

Key Benefits of ArtioSign and Oracle Simphony Integration

  • Save time with automatic updates, rather than having to change individual screens
  • Make sure the information displayed is always up to date and avoid customer disappointment
  • Use dynamic pricing to promote select food or beverages
  • Reduce costs of printing and shipping of static menu board inserts

Advanced User Permissions in ArtioSign

ArtioSign’s new approval process enables managers to accept, reject or amend ArtioSign content before it gets published, ensuring that only approved content is used and communications are always on-brand and accurate.

Key Benefits of Advanced Approvals

  • Ensure content is up to date, on brand and impactful
  • Eliminate the risk of having signage published publicly before it's approved
  • Approve or edit the changes in seconds and save time

Application High Availability

Our High Availability app, available for the AvediaServer and ArtioSign & ArtioGuest applications, now supports our Transcoder and Origin Server platforms, making it easier for users to configure High Availability and guarantee a reliable experience.

Enjoy an uninterrupted ArtioSign and ArtioGuest experience by setting up a secondary server which will automatically take over if the primary server becomes unavailable. This High Availability scenario means you’ll always be able to design, manage and display signage screens or guest portals without any interruption.

Key Benefits of High Availability

  • Ensure an uninterrupted signage experience when creating, publishing and managing content
  • Benefit from peace of mind, knowing your IP video system is ultra-reliable
  • Provide a continuous service for viewers with no risk of downtime

ArtioFlow Triggers

Our last release introduced ArtioFlow, which enables organisations to easily create workflows in ArtioSign and ArtioGuest, by simply dragging actions such as power on or channel change into a sequence. These workflows can now be triggered when specific events occur; for instance, to mute all TVs and display important information, quickly and effectively communicating a message that requires immediate attention. 

It is also possible to assign priorities to these triggers, ensuring that a lower priority message doesn't override something that requires immediate attention

Key Benefits of Workflow Triggers

  • Display communications tailored to specific events or times
  • Save time by setting up automatic triggers in advance
  • Communicate the right message to the right audience at the right time

Stream to Facebook Live

Our AvediaStream Transcoder and Origin Server platforms now support RTMPS, enabling organisations to stream live events, such as sports competitions, to Facebook live and reach a broad audience.
