Flickr, Google Picasa, Photobucket Web 2.0 support added to signagelive

SAFFRON WALDEN, England — Signagelive, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) digital signage platform, has added full support for user generated content (UGC) enabling pictures and video uploaded and stored to Flickr, Google Picasa Web Albums, and Photobucket (plus any media RSS publishing platform) to be scheduled and played back on displays, desktops and as screensavers on any Internet-connected Windows-based PC.

Using the signagelive online layout creator, users can create pixel-accurate multi-zone templates to be designed in any combination of style and layout required, ready for user generated content to be shown.

Playlists of uploaded media (images, videos, flash), streamed media (IPTV, Web pages) and UGC content (Flickr, Google Picasa, Photobucket), can be created and scheduled for play back either in full screen or within the user-designed templates for any date and time required, allowing users to create their own multimedia experience.

Comprehensive live online monitoring and reporting tools provide total control of every connected signagelive player enabling 100 percent compliance. Standard online reports and dashboards detail when players receive the content sent and when the scheduled media has been played. 

“It is important to provide signagelive customers use of their existing online media libraries enabling convergence of the web, TV and digital signage content,” said Jason Cremins, chief executive of Remote Media Limited, the company behind signagelive. “By adding media RSS support to signagelive we have seamlessly opened up access to users Flickr, Google Picasa and Photobucket libraries along with any media publishing platforms supporting the media RSS standard.”
