The drag’n’drop option allows you to add these files to your playlist easily.

SmilControl’s software also allows you to send external content such as live streams and display web pages.

There are all sorts of organizational tools for your playlists that allow you to embed playlists in other playlists efficiently. This connects media between playlists without having to take on extra space.

Multiple zones


Example multiple zones

One of the best things about SMIL players is screen division to play multiple playlists independently at the same time.

You can play around with multiple playlists on the same screen with adjustable sizes or placements.

All you need to do is define space and specifications for those playlists in the playlist management area and assign playlists to each zone.

Dynamic content


SmilControl helps you keep your information up-to-date.

You can link dynamic content from news feed, etc. to your template and it will change dynamically and stay up-to-date.

SmilControl will automatically make channels from this content and can independently update this content multiple times in a day.

Localized content


SYou can work on localized content like a weather forecast. Just add a location in the CMS, and it will adjust the regional content accordingly. So, using different players in multiple locations, you can control the local weather.

Example: local weather forecast

Templates


Editing templates
You can either use standard templates that are available for you or customize your template which makes you stand out.

With SmilControl you can store and manage those templates and use them for dynamic content on your own. Our players allow you to build and display templates based on SVG, HTML5, and even dynamic websites using Javascript.

This allows flexibility and personalization of your content.

Monitoring & reporting


You can monitor your playlists to keep track of who played what and when they played it on your player to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

SmilControl checks and shows if your devices are online. Playback protocols are available for download and display in CVS format or even to import them for later monitoring purposes onto your database.

Moreover, you can monitor your device through system and inventory reports.

Rights management


In case you want to manage your employees’ access to your device, we have a built-in rights system to help out with that. You can specify processing rights and user access for each employee.

For instance, you can separately manage access rights for employees who will display and maintain your content from the users who serve their players.

You can even go another step ahead and appoint administrators to assign rights to other employees, grant permissions to templates, sources, playlists, etc. as needed.
