Public API, tags and Multi-Team Membership

Blogpost was published on August 26, 2020

We’re excited to launch yet another big release with some interesting functionality like our brand new Public API.


In our latest version, we’re introducing tags, which enable you to set up alternative scenarios involving some or all of your screens. Tags can be used to temporarily take over the screen content for a specified duration.

For example, you could create an emergency playlist that would instruct people to evacuate immediately. In case of an emergency, you can activate the tag with just a few clicks.

Public API

Are you looking for a solution where you can control the content on your screens using your own machine interface? This opens up new possibilities for integrating screens with security systems, RFID tags, facial recognition software, or even emergency systems to programmatically activate tags.

Multi-Team Membership

In some cases, you might need multiple teams to best manage your organization's screens and their content.

Larger organizations can especially benefit from using multi-team membership either because of the number of screens, locations, and venues, or because they require one team per country.
