ATLANTA, GA – June 5, 2012– Visix, Inc. has added its popular Mass Alert Notification technology to the latest update of its premier digital signage content management software, Announce version 1.4. The move comes as clients increasingly integrate digital signage into crisis communication plans to send visual alerts to displays in case of emergencies such as severe weather, work interruptions and threats of violence.
The Announce Alert Notification Module allows users to supplant scheduled content on the entire system or on selected media players in one of two ways:
1. Manually using an easy prompt in the software interface, or
2. Through third-party systems that automatically trigger alert notices.
The second option allows integrated third-party systems to post CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) messages to the content manager. These external systems can include mass notification and text messaging services, emergency notification systems, public address systems, and others. Visix technologies support CAP alerts from Rave Mobile, e2Campus and several other emergency notification providers.
“Alert capabilities are becoming a standard requested feature for digital signage,” says Sean Matthews, President of Visix. “The Alert Module for our AxisTV software has been very positively received and we’re leveraging our experience and research with that product to meet the needs of our Announce customers, especially those in higher education who see alert functionality as a must have.”
Announce has consistently gained market traction since its introduction last June. The software’s user interface runs in a web browser and uses inductive navigation to make workflows clear and understandable, allowing users with a wide range of technical and design skills to deliver stylish visual messages quickly and easily. Some of the application’s main features are:
- Animated layouts and backgrounds
- Fill-in and auto-generated templates
- Advanced scripting engine
- 3-D animated tickers
- Support for interactive hot spots
- Fully localizable for international use
- Intuitive asset management
- Robust media playback engine
