Cologne, July 18, 2017 - kompas version 8.5 has revolutionized digital signage and has come onto the market with functions that no other software solution offers to this extent. The digital-signage software solution from dimedis integrates the smartphone into all areas, for example to administer content or monitor the players. In addition, numerous functions for the retail trade are being presented such as improved control of sales campaigns at the POS via smartphone. The new interface for the integration of queuing management systems in kompas is exciting for public authorities and offices. Thus, the integration of the MOM-3800 system produced by our partner MEM-O-MATIC has been achieved. The calls are shown next to an ongoing digital-signage program, including an optical and acoustic signal. Another highlight is the integration of livestreams:. This allows all common livestream formats to be integrated. The current playlist is interrupted and a live signal transmitted. A one-of-a-kind innovation on the market is the synchronisation of content on several screens without needing a common playlist: Content is played concurrently in a loop even on several screens at the same time – without having to play an identical playlist on every player.
