We continue to improve both the capabilities and the ease-of-use of StrandVision Digital Signage. This month we're featuring some powerpoint digital signage capabilities that several customers have requested. They make it really easy to reuse existing PowerPoint slides and give you an easy way to create and display multiple photos and graphics.
We've offered the ability to convert PowerPoint (.PPT or .PPTX) presentations to .JPG format for use with your StrandVision Digital Signage for some time. Now we have three options that fit with the way that you use the conversion tool. It takes just a few easy steps:
You will then see the conversion page that offers three options:
You also have new options as to how you display your multiple graphics whether you upload PPTs for conversion or just want to show multiple .JPG graphics in a single page. There are two display options:
After you log in go to "Modify Pages" and select the "Page Type" dropdown.
There you will see "Random Photos / Images" and "Multiple Photos / Images"
If you select "Random" and add up to ten photos or graphics to the page, they will be displayed each time your StrandVision Digital Signage goes through the entire deck of pages. So, if you have seven photos to display, one will be displayed on each run through and it will take seven rotations through the deck to complete showing the full set.
The "Multiple" selection displays all of the photos/graphics each time the page comes up in the rotation. So, if you have seven photos/graphics they will all be displayed before your StrandVision Digital Signage moves on to the next page in the rotation. Every photo/graphic will be displayed on each run through of the rotation.
Both "Random" and "Multiple" work with any .JPG, .GIF or .PNG file that you add to the pages and also accommodate the PowerPoint conversion pages described in the earlier section.
