ScreenCloud August 2017 Update

At ScreenCloud, we believe in running an open business. Each month, we send out an investor update — these blog posts are an extract from those updates.

ScreenCloud Post

Our new editor for building custom layouts, a foray into YouTube and top app picks for August. Here are all of the latest goings-on at ScreenCloud this month.

Improvements to layouts and zones are here!

When we first launched our digital signage platform we were torn whether or not to include zoned displays.

Historically, well, they never looked great. There was too much going on and no one really knew how or why to use different zones. Then you guys came along and told us why you needed them. So we added the ability to zone screens into four key layouts.

Now, after listening to feedback, we’ve launched even more features to allow you to have 100% control over your digital displays.

Custom layout editor

Build your own zones in whichever size or layout you like using our custom layout editor. This can be found under Screens > Screen Settings > Change Layout > Edit Custom Layout.

Assign playlists and schedules to zones

In addition to adding a specific app to a specific zone, you can now assign a playlist or schedule to a zone. This means you can have a different playlist playing in each zone, or you can pick and mix between the two.

Try it for yourself at ScreenCloud Signage.

ScreenCloud does YouTube

We’re committed to helping you look like an absolute rockstar when setting up your digital signage displays. So along with the 100+ articles already on the ScreenCloud blog we’re now going to be adding video “how to” guides to our repertoire. You can find the first, showing how to get news apps to play on your digital screens, below.
