PRESS RELEASE: Digichief and Mvix partner on Media-RSS content for Digital Signage networks
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sterling, VA. June 11, 2014: DIGICHIEF, a provider of fully-licensed content feeds, and MVIX, an industry leader in high definition digital signage solutions, have partnered to distribute a series of highly targeted Media RSS (MRSS) video content channels.
MRSS is a technology platform for syndicating multimedia files such as audio, video, and images via RSS feeds as a new way to acquire content for signage networks. Users can add the media simply by pasting the dynamic web feed / URL into their media library and schedule it to their devices. As new, fresh content becomes available, the media player downloads this content onto its local storage and automatically transmits the current feed to the scheduled screens.
“This is an exciting partnership and we are proud to work with Digichief,” said A. Jay, Director of Business Relations at Mvix. “Partnering with Digichief provides our clients with access to a versatile repository of fresh and engaging content. It is a reflection of our continued commitment to enhance the quality of solutions available to our clients.”
Digichief’s MRSS content includes video news and entertainment updates, presenter-led weather forecasts, healthy living tips, health fun-facts, relaxation tips, famous failures, Spotting the Signs, Today’s Green Minute with Jim Parks, thought of the day, words of wisdom, and more.
“We continue to be impressed with the Mvix platform, its affordability, the intuitive design, and ease of use. Integrating our targeted Media RSS content with their platform is a win-win for everyone involved. Mvix clients can easily tap into to our video series and expect to have high-quality, engaging content across their signage network,” said Gene Hamm, Partner at Digichief.
As a distribution partner, Mvix clients will have a subscription-based video library of multimedia content choices to keep their network fresh and engaging. Live MRSS content can be included in zones and deployed along with advertorials, news tickers, weather, stocks information, or traffic data. As a key feature of Mvix signage systems, content can be configured for offline playback. Offline playback of MRSS feeds reduces bandwidth consumption and enhances viewer experience.
“Dynamic digital signage content continues to be the focus area of our industry. Our objective is to provide easy-to-use content and dynamic media to our users,” stated A. Jay. “For the past year, Mvix has invested strategically into building content widgets and leveraged partnerships to provide our clients with superior digital signage solutions.”
