WireSpring upgrades FireCast digital signage and kiosk software

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Deployed by companies like Wal-Mart, P&G and BP, WireSpring’s FireCast software powers thousands of self-service kiosks and digital signage screens worldwide. The company has announced a major upgrade to its Linux-based software platform, while improving upon the software’s ease-of-use, reliability and tight integration.
“We’ve been listening to customer feedback and studying the market for over seven years,” said WireSpring chief executive Bill Gerba. “The new version of FireCast helps customers create even more striking displays, while reducing the time and cost of operating their networks.”
New features in the FireCast OS playback software include:
  • Multichannel video output allows customers to drive up to four separate screens from a single player, with a multizone layout on each screen.
  • Dynamic templates make it easy to combine content and information on-the-fly.
  • Multiple tickers on the screen at once, layered playback zones, duration detection for all content types, live TV on rotated screens, and smoother playback of Windows Media files.
New features in the FireCast ClientCenter content management software include:
  • A more efficient playlist editor that lets customers drag-and-drop files, choose which files will appear full-screen, and specify the start/end date, start/end time, and days of the week for each ad.
  • An expanded file manager that provides centralized access to content, playlists, and reports.
  • The ability to display AccuWeather content by choosing it from the playlist editor.
