The DisplayEngine Eventhandler is an optionally licensed module for either the DisplayEngine H6 or W5, allowing the DisplayEngine to receive externally sent messages (Event), togther the the optional server-side module “PRESTIGEenterprise Cross-Merchanding” it enables the DisplayEngine products to actively react on these messages with changing screen content on basis of the sent message, like an UPC or EAN code. The DisplayEngine EventHandler is also used by the interactive features of WPITCOM Display Box Software to offer a wide range of possible message sources, like temperature or approach sensors, GPS or other external sources.
Active advertising is based on user or device input in order to change the content displayed, maybe based on a purchase on a scale, the scanning of a barcode, the reading an RFID tag, or specified temperature values, iniating a change of the content on screen, either to get the customer attention, or display additional information.
The DisplayEngine Eventhandler is used to allow the media player ( DisplayEngine product ), which is responsable for displaying the desired content on screen, to receive a signal and to select the associated content ( normally a playlist assigned to the content of the message ).
As playlists can contain different media types, like videos, images, animations or other webparts, the creativity is nearly not limited to design interesting active advertising with the DiaplayEngine Eventhandler.
