Software solutions for distributed networks with several hundred or a thousand screen locations require two essential features: Remote diagnostics and maintenance, and especially for advertising marketers: playback statistics. Of course, we are capable of both. And moreover: in freedom that is unique on the market.
Professional advertising displays offer numerous functions for every application. To operate a display, you need a powerful digital signage player.
Because we value freedom and transparency, the choice is yours:
Use field-proven hardware players from one of our hardware partners like IAdea, AiO-Player, digitalsignage.de, smil-player.com and others.
Use your hardware with our free player software, Garlic-Player.
The Garlic player plays numerous media formats such as images, videos, websites and executes so-called widgets. It does not matter whether it is running on Windows, Linux, Android, or macOS. It offers the possibility to transfer the content over the internet as well as with a USB stick.
You can also brand the player to your label for resale.
Device - and Content-Management
Our SmilControl CMS as the core of a networked digital signage solution fulfills enterprise requirements of an asset, control, and content management system.
Remote maintenance functions allow you to conveniently administer even large networks of digital advertising displays.
Logs and reports help you to create accurate playback statistics for yourself or your customers. There is the option to have individual statistics generated for each location regularly.
In addition, players can also be grouped into statistics groups to create regional or national playback statistics and display them as a pie chart. By the way: A device may be in several groups at the same time.
Openness and transparency are the common thread running through our software concepts. As for playback statistics, this means that you can download all data in raw format as a so-called CSV and import it into your in-house database as standard.

Proxy Software against download Hiccups
In a department store, discount store or supermarket, several dozen advertising displays may share an Internet connection. This can be a veritable bottleneck as soon as new content is due for download. If the screens display partially identical playlists, they redundantly load content and cause data congestion.
We recognized the problem in 2018 and developed a so-called Reverse Proxy especially for digital signage networks. It intelligently protects the Internet connection. The proxy recognizes identical content and downloads only the necessary content.
The solution is tailor-made for narrowband Internet connections in urban areas, via mobile communications or in developing countries.
