InfoComm - YCD Multimedia Releases Version 3.7.1 of C-nario Digital Signage Suite at InfoComm 2015

The latest update brings HTML5 enhancements and content deployment improvements on display at InfoComm 2015

New York, June 16, 2015 - YCD Multimedia, the leading global provider of advanced digital signage software solutions, announces version 3.7.1 of its popular C-nario Digital Signage Suite. The latest release brings key improvements in its support of HTML5 and other important bug fixes.


Originally introduced in version 3.7, the HTML5 item allowed users to display and run HTML5 content on the C-nario Digital Signage Suite Platform. The item supported both widgets and online URLs, with built-in authentication for secure content, and WebKit compliance for excellent compatibility.

Version 3.7.1 brings two important new features for HTML5 content:

1. Device control API - allowing HTML5 content to communicate with content and elements ("devices") in the C-nario system, opening up opportunities for localization of content, data links to / from connected devices, multi-player gaming, high resolution interactives and more.

2. HTML5 Failover & Recovery provides graceful handling of errors or issues resulting from intermittent internet connections. During playback, if an error in a user-provided URL is detected the system will automatically "fail over" to backup URL or stored content. Once the monitored URL no longer returns an error, the system can automatically "recover" to the original URL.

Additional enhancements include:

1. Faster content distribution - Thanks to a revamped process and data optimization, version 3.7.1 shortens deployment times for complex content by as much as 60% compared with 3.7. Furthermore, background processing ensures users can continue working within the system immediately after initiating a content transfer.

2. Improved Sequence (timeline) nesting makes it simpler to create complex synchronized sequences.

3. 4K Support - support for content playback and distribution to 4K capable displays.

C-nario Digital Signage Suite version 3.7.1 is now available in new or upgrade licenses. Those attending InfoComm 2015 can see the latest release in action at rp Visuals booth #3433 and LG Electronics USA booth #1529.
