MediaSignage: introducing RemoteTouch – it’s what you’ve been waiting for..

RemoteTouch is probably the most exciting feature we released to date. Imagine if you could extend your Digital Signage screens right onto your audience’s hand held devices, allowing them full control over which content to watch and to make selections; well imagine no more. RemoteTouch can do all that and a lot more.

With RemoteTouch your audience can use their smart phones (iPhone, Android, etc) to scan a QR code and remotely control the screen in front of them. When users tap on the menu displayed on their mobile phones, the corresponding content will be presented on the Digital Signage screens; it’s as simple as that.

RemoteTouch includes:

Timeline switching through events
Collection navigation through events
Dynamic QR code generation per screen
Client side support for HTML5 / JavaScript
Intelligent screen access mechanism
Remote API to send screen commands
Working samples and source code
