STRATACACHE has announced the development of an iPhone app for its ActiVia for Media digital signage software.

The ActiVia iPhone App allows mobile users to manage digital signage networks from the palm of their hand, the company said. With access to the ActiVia Constellation Manager admin console, the ActiVia iPhone App provides a system overview dashboard for the entire signage network, in addition to vital device management, monitoring, and media channel functionalities.

According to the company, the ActiVia iPhone App is ideal for environments such as QSR, hospitality and retail where a local user, who may not have ongoing access to a PC, can manage their signage network while performing duties on the go.

A “search” feature makes edge devices within a large network easy to find, the company said. The app provides several ways to organize the devices such as host name, IP address and location. With the ActiVia iPhone App, performing operations on specific devices or device groups is simple and convenient.

“The ActiVia iPhone App is another step in our development roadmap to lower the overall cost of operating a digital signage system,” said Louie Hollmeyer, VP of marketing for Dayton, Ohio-based STRATACACHE.

Screen shots of the media playing on each device within the network can be viewed on the iPhone and content updates can be executed, the company said. Location maps also can be displayed for each media player.

The “commands” status feature allows users to view all commands (past, present, and scheduled) issued by the currently logged on user, as well as commands of subordinate users. Each command is associated with a command status. Role-based access control (RBAC) also is supported.

An increasing number of major retailers are leveraging digital signage to communicate with their customers at the point of sale, but often experience serious constraints when delivering rich media to highly distributed edge locations. Installing 10 to 20 in-store displays compared to thousands of displays will dramatically change network and software requirements. Riegel addressed these issues, covering the planning and conception, approaches, expenses, and the major technical challenges and requirements of a large-scale digital media network implementation.
