If you are seeing an issue with your digital sign, what do you do? Well the first thing to do is to try to locate the source of the problem. Is it a local issue? Have I changed my network configuration? Or maybe it’s not a local issue. Is ScreenScape down?
If you find yourself unable to access the ScreenScape service and you suspect the service may be down then head over to status.screenscape.com. The ScreenScape Status page provides incident reports, upcoming scheduled maintenance windows, application error rates and the historical uptime of the ScreenScape service. With a quick glance, you can see if there have been any ScreenScape service incidents over a 90 day period.
Yesterday we introduced our first ‘Apps’. You’ll find them in your Media editor under a new ‘Cloud’ button, along with some new app-powered templates.
We’re very excited to introduce you to a new and very cool set of formatting features we call Layer Styles!
Watch the video and read this blog post to learn more. (more…)
Layer styles are the latest formatting feature for Media.
These styles allow designers to add advanced styles to layers, like Opacity, Text Shadow or Border Radius.
Please note, Layer Styles are an advanced feature. You don’t have to use them to create great looking media. BUT – for those looking to add something special to their designs – layer styles are a great addition to the toolset.
Layer Styles are especially useful for integration apps and other dynamic media, where formatting is required but the text and images change over time. In these cases, a style applied to the entire layer (vs a static image or text) is necessary.
One of our regular UX (user experience) observation tasks is to look at areas of frustration our users might be having when using our digital signage software. Once we identify one, we attempt to reduce or remove it. It’s a healthy way of reviewing past design decisions, revisiting assumptions and adjusting as necessary.
We’re always working to improve ScreenScape so there are changes happening all the time. We trouble shoot our system constantly so we can deliver the best software on the market.
Today’s update is a simple one: Asset Delete.
