New Carousel software release adds Twitter, Facebook authentication alongside new visual enhancements tools to address evolving customer needs
ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, December 17, 2013 – Tightrope Media Systems announces a new software release for its tried-and-true Carousel digital signage platform, giving its customers new tools and enhancements that keep content fresh and enrich visual appeal.
Available today, the Carousel 6.4 software release supports direct Twitter and Facebook integration, simplifying how operators access and subsequently incorporate social media feeds into signage layouts. This native connection, achieved via a simple login process, also better organizes social media integration so that content remains timely.
“Social media is so natural to people today that it’s easy for most to focus in and consume that information on signage platforms,” said Eric Henry, Signage Solutions Lead for Tightrope Media Systems. “Our customers are increasingly seeking ways to ensure that their social media content is current, dynamic and well-aligned with their screen content. It creates a natural connection between consumers and the businesses or organizations that rely on digital signage as a communications platform.”
The new Carousel software release also includes visual and operational enhancements to keep screens lively and appealing. A new text character limit on Carousel bulletins eliminate screen crowding and wordy passages to retain viewers and strengthen messages. Similarly, a new web preview feature offers a quick glance at clock bulletins to ensure content is synchronized and easy to digest. Operationally, a new copy option allows for quick transfer of new bulletins to fresh templates, allowing users to create and customize layouts rich with up-to-date information.
“The new software release benefits our customers across all digital signage verticals we serve, including hospitality, transportation, sports and houses of worship,” said Henry. “These enhancements also reflect what our customers are requesting today.”
