PADS4 HTML5 Viewer supports IAdea Signboard players
EINDHOVEN, the Netherlands. July 30, 2014. Net Display Systems (NDS), developer of PADS digital signage software, has teamed up with IAdea, maker of cutting-edge commercial-grade digital signage players and integrated displays.
For digital signage solutions that require displays to be OS independent and browser-based NDS offers the PADS4 HTML5 Basic Viewer. With the PADS4 HTML5 Basic Viewer AV integrators can deploy signage projects with a low-end solution, but can also create a hybrid digital signage solution within one network.
The NDS PADS HTML5 Viewer has been successfully tested and certified by IAdea and is compatible with the entire catalog of IAdea Signboard players.
This partnership offers various cost effective digital signage solutions highly suitable for industries such as Corporate, Hospitality and Retail.
“Combine the NDS PADS HTML 5 Viewer with the Android based IAdea Signboard and you will have a low cost, yet smart digital signage solution for effective display communication”, claims Willie-Jan Bons, CEO at NDS. ”Think of dynamic door signs linked to your room reservation system, displaying scheduled meetings or use the displays for in-shelf communication and dynamically change your messages based on weather, time or even point of sales data”, he continues.
The NDS/IAdea solution can also be used as a Shelf Edge Interactive Catalog that provides detailed information about products and services.
“We are excited that NDS now offers comprehensive vertical solutions based on IAdea’s digital signage devices,” says Rex Chen, Executive VP of IAdea. “IAdea focuses on collaborating closely with software partners to bring success across our entire ecosystem. Just recently we announced a project win that deployed more than 15,000 displays with technologies developed by IAdea and its partners.”
IAdea makes a full line of digital signage media players and signboards that support the SMIL open standard and are optimized for HTML5 dynamic content. At the core is IAdea’s “hardened” version of Android built with enhanced reliability and performance to address digital signage-specific needs.
