It is tricky trying to figure out which are the best features of a piece of software because it mostly depends on what you want to use it for. For example, you may like your phone because it is great for WhatsApp, or because you have apps that ping when your day trades hit the right price, or perhaps because the free drawing app allows you to sketch while in the bathroom. There are a lot of reasons why people may like their digital signage software because there are lots of ways to use digital signs. From interactive menus to 3D displays on the side of buildings. Since there are so many reasons to love digital signage software, here are a few of the most popular features of Kitcast tv.
Scheduling Your Content On Digital Signs
When you think about scheduling content, you probably think about companies like Buffer and Hootsuite that will schedule your Tweets to run out at various times of the day. This is sort of how digital sign software works, but you have far more control. For example, you could have six different videos that you loop over and over again, or you could have some videos showing in the morning, some in the evening and some at night. You could even schedule your videos and content to run on different days to see if one video improves sales more than another.
A Template System
You can create every bit of content and structure yourself, but these days, it is easier and often better looking if you use templates. This allows you to add content from a variety of sources and display it in a very consistent way. Modern templates may also include transitions so that you can move from one piece of content to another without it looking choppy or poorly edited.
A Power Editor
Going on from the previous point, you can create all of your own content, but sometimes it is easier, quicker and more convenient to create the content within your digital sign software. That way, you don’t have to worry too much about screen sizes, frame rates and other niggling adjustments that you have to make when moving content/files from one platform to another. Also, not having to worry about third-party editing apps and being able to do all the editing and posting with one tool is very convenient.
Create – Engage – Manage
Going from the previous points, consider how much easier your life would be if you could create, engage and manage your content from a single platform. A good digital sign program should allow you to do all three. It should make the process as easy and convenient as possible.
Third-Party App Integration
There has to be a level of flexibility and adaptability when it comes to this sort of software. It cannot be like Apple with its (just us, nobody else) attitude. Modern digital sign software has to be able to work with other pieces of software, such as paying processing software, and other pieces of hardware, such as payment taking hardware.
Stock Images & Animated Backgrounds
Having these sorts of things isn’t essential to most users, but to some, they are highly desirable. This is especially true if the user wishes to use live or recent content. For example, if you are highlighting your most popular customer tweets on your digital signs, then giving them a nice frame and an animated background makes them look more professional. Even things like stock images are good because they can add something to your displays to liven up the more clinical or sterile parts of your displays (like the parts where you show numbers, stats or charts).
