WPITCOM Signage Suite 3 – Browser as Content Source
With WPITCOM Signage Suite 3, each of the screens can be configured so that an internal or external Internet address (URL) is automatically displayed by the system.
As an internal URL, we refer to the possibility of installing complete applications locally on the hardware player and then calling them up directly from the local memory – of course, self-installed add-ons such as PHP or databases are not unreasonable.
Apart from that, it is of course also possible to specify a “normal” Internet URL at any time.
With these two options, many individual application examples can be implemented using the advantages of the WPITCOM Signage Suite 3 – from interactive applications, to monitoring applications, status displays, timetable displays or specific IoT or price checker applications and much more… .
Some common use cases
Web-based interactive applications
Product Data Display
Sensor – Monitoring / Temperature Monitoring
The additional module “WPITCOM ComBridge” is used for communication between a website / HTML5 application and the operating system and, for example, allows measured temperatures to be displayed on a website in conjunction with a content plugin. The temperature plugin allows to monitor up to 16 DS18B20 sensors at the same time.
This additional module also offers the option of reporting the determined temperature values to an infrastructure monitoring system, so that further application options can be easily implemented.
