Even in such a case, however, the contents can be used safely.
NEC live is available in two bundles:
NEC Live has a leading content creation application known as NEC Live Artist which has a user interface similar to the Adobe development tools. NEC Live Artist works with objects, such as videos, text, tickers and sound. The Content Creator drags and drops the objects into the Artist editor for further customisation utilising the objects settings such as position, transparency, shadow and gradients. With the preview facility within Artist, the creator can iteratively develop the movie until satisfied with the result and ready to distribute.
NEC live supports several different channels during playback. Each channel plays independently with the content from each channel shown on the same display. You can then either define the channel in a split screen format or layered to achieve other objectives such as news feeds, company logos or adding special effects such as snow falling.
It is recommended that Windows Media Video Format (MWV) and Quicktime are standardised upon due to the video quality and stability.
Sound during playback can be derived from different sources; Sound Object, Music Object, Video, Flash or even from a Web Page. Issues to consider when using sound in your Digital Signage content are:
If you have decided that you want the security of knowing that content will not be displayed without approval of say the Marketing/Commercial Manager, then NEC Live Enterprise can be configured to work with NEC Live Artist and Communicate to provide multiple levels of approval prior to distribution of the digital signage content.
NEC Live Update works in conjunction with NEC Live Player. At a specified interval NEC Live Update can log onto either an FTP Server or shared network directory and compares the content to the content currently being played by NEC Live Player. If NEC Live Update identifies that the content on the FTP Server or shared network directory has changed, it will download all changed or new files to a temporary directory. NEC Live Update can be configured to look at more than one site or destination directory, with each location having its own update interval. This flexibility allows different types of content to be treated based upon the unique characteristics. For example, when sourcing Call Centre data the frequency of update will be higher than for normal video type presentation content.
Yes NEC Live provides access to a range of database types allowing data to be read and output into a text file. The text file can then be retrieved at the point of display by NEC Live Update and included as either text, a ticker or a table object. The supported database servers are:
