What is WebView?
WebView is a data provider used in specific ScreenScape templates. It allows a user to enter a web URL (web address like https://www.screenscape.com) to display web page content on a ScreenScape display.
What can I do with WebView?
WebView is particularly useful when you have rich visual content on a website that is simple and easily legible from a great distance, uses large fonts or simple large-sized images. Even with those design constraints there’s a lot you can do with a WebView template.
- display dynamic data
- display HTML5 content that was designed for digital signage by a HTML5 content specialist
- display a dynamic chart from a website
- display graphics and charts generated by sites like Google docs
- display status info from a website
- display images generated by a high resolution webcam
When I search for WebView in ScreenManager, why don’t I find it?
The WebView template has some limitations and so it has not been released as a general purpose template. If you think you would benefit from a template using WebView, let our Customer Support Team know and they will contact you to discuss further options.
