New York, August 22, 2013 - YCD Multimedia, a leading global provider of smart digital signage solutions, today announced Version 5.0 of its cloud-based content management system - YCD|CMS SaaS. The new version greatly improves core features while adding new tools, including all new built-in editors, new and enhanced content management with authorizations and remote control, and a host of user interface enhancements.


With the new built-in HTML 5-based editors users can now create and edit layouts, playlists, and schedules right from the CMS for a more efficient workflow and quicker turnaround from authoring to display.

YCD|CMS's already powerful content management capabilities have been bolstered with a host of remote station control and monitoring features such as real-time playback status, zone, layout, playlist and videowall details, and remote control capabilities such as player restart, weekly/monthly automatic sync and automatic alerts and notifications. Enhanced content management pages now allow users to delete playlists, schedules, and layouts with or without associated media to preserve and optimize player media storage.

Lastly, user interface enhancements of YCD|CMS SaaS solution include keyword search columns in playlist, schedule, layout and package management pages, plus a quick search widget for quickly finding stations and an indication icon for RAMP (YCD's Retail Advertising and Merchandising Platform).
