Announce content management software allows for regional or system-wide CAP-compliant alert notices.
ATLANTA, GA – August 14, 2012 – Visix, Inc. has released the latest update of its premier digital signage content management software, Announce version 1.4. The update includes a variety of new features, enhancements and bug fixes for a significantly improved user experience. The most notable item of the update is the addition of Visix’s popular Mass Alert Notification technology.
The Announce Alert Notification Module allows users to supplant scheduled content on the entire system or on selected media players in one of two ways:
1. Manually using an easy prompt in the software interface, or
2. Through third-party systems that automatically trigger alert notices.
The second option allows integrated third-party systems to post CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) messages to the content manager. These external systems can include mass notification and text messaging services, emergency notification systems, public address systems, and others. Visix technologies support CAP alerts from Rave Mobile, e2Campus and several other emergency notification providers.
The move comes as clients increasingly integrate digital signage into crisis communication plans to send visual alerts to displays in case of emergencies such as severe weather, work interruptions and threats of violence.
The Announce 1.4 update is available free of charge to current Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) clients. To request the update and read detailed release notes, visit http://www.visix.com/announce_updates.html.
