Christmas is getting closer and closer and as we start prepping for gifts, decorations, what to put on the Christmas table and who we’re going to visit throughout the holidays, we wanted to finish up a couple of things and wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

This update brings new plugins that you can use to spice up your digital signs.

With the new Amazon FireTV stick, 4K is more affordable than ever. There is one catch to Android 4K devices, however — they’re optimized to play 4k video in a native video player where they have support for hardware decoding. When adding a 4K video to the canvas, our editor automatically sets the video to play using an Android native video player for a smoother playback experience.

This plugin brings interesting facts about what happened on this date. You can either display the most recent events from a few years back or have the plugin to randomly deliver events.

Today in history content for your digital signage

The data is loaded from Wikipedia’s day pages, such as this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_11
