22 Jan 2016

Digital signage software company MediaSignage says it has added more than 800 new templates to its free SignageStudio Lite v1.5 platform, along with several new components.

The new component include an updated Google Calendar component, Google spreadsheets, Instagram social and Digg social components and Twitter V3 support.

The company says it has also added better resource management, enhanced scenes with richer label rendering and features, better documentation for the offering and expanded resources available open source through GitHub.

MediaSignage says the new templates include restaurant digital menus and other real-time information alerts in a corporate setting, allowing users to pick a pre-arranged template, tweak or add new content and publish to digital display screens anywhere in the world.

Sean Levy, MediaSignage chief executive, says the template release ‘will be a great boon for both existing and new customers’.
