About IDS Server
The IDS Server allows you to schedule content on individual screens or groups of screens, remotely managed from a single application. Remote management can be set up from a single or multiple point of management, each assigned with different administrator profiles.
With IDS Server you can manage your DISplayers in an easy and intuitive way. You can send pages, switch the displays on or off, perform updates etc. All actions can either be done manually or automatically via the built-in scheduler. Content can be modified and directly sent to the DISplayer for viewing.
Monitoring and reporting
The DISplayer provides full logging of all played content for billing purposes, logging of network communication between server and DISplayer for service reasons. The system detects when a file is outdated so that the IDS Server can automatically send new files to the DISplayer. The system gives feedback about the played objects and it regularly takes screenshots of what is playing. Every screen can be controlled from one server application and screens can be grouped or subgrouped. External content databases can also be linked and automatically updated.
