ISE 2016 PREVIEW: NAVORI LABS
Navori Labs has created an HTML5 version of QL Manager, the intuitive content management systems at the core of the company’s digital signage software QL Professional. The HTML5 user interface delivers a template and media preview feature to improve insight into design quality, along with a more responsive user interface to simplify content creation and management. Additionally, the migration to HTML5 will support playlist and rules-based scheduling based on meta tags, enabling more effective targeting of content delivery across out-of-home networks.
The new user interface will also extend usability across more devices due to HTML5’s compatibility with all enterprise web and mobile browsers – enabling more flexibility for users of the Microsoft Silverlight-based, previous-generation user interface, which will continue to be an option for QL customers working on Windows-based architectures.
At ISE 2016, Navori Labs will demonstrate how its new QL Server SDK can serve as the backbone for an entire digital signage infrastructure across content management, distribution, playback and monitoring. The new QL Server SDK allows for management and control of QL Professional from custom third-party software, providing a seamless interface to ad booking, media planning and other systems and applications.
The open programmability of the QL Server SDK also ensures that systems integrators, resellers, network operators and end users can customise the QL user interface according to the customer’s requirements and profiles. The QL Server SDK is compatible with both the new HTML5 and Silverlight user interface.
The emphasis on improving the user experience aligns with Navori Labs CEO Jerome Moeri’s vision of continually evolving the QL digital signage engine portfolio based on emerging trends and customer requests.
“With nearly two decades of innovation and a presence in more than 100 countries, Navori Labs continues to build on its reputation for rock-solid, Swiss-quality technology and low total cost of ownership for digital signage,” said Moeri. “By focusing on improving the user experience foremost, we have built a foundation to further strengthen QL with new features and innovations for our base of more than 15,000 customers – many of which we will unveil as we move closer to ISE and Digital Signage Expo.”
