Mvix Launches Device-Agnostic Platform that Includes Support for Chrome OS Devices
Sterling, VA. November 1, 2017 -- Mvix, a leading provider of content-rich digital signage solutions, announced the launch of Mvix Flex, a digital signage platform designed to enable the use of XhibitSignage, their content-rich digital signage software, with Chrome OS devices.
"We're very excited to announce the launch of Mvix Flex for Chrome" said A. Jay, the Mvix Senior Director of Business Relations."Chrome devices bring a great new dimension to our platform and it shifts the focus to the choice of CMS, support and business model, rather than player."
With this launch, customers can now display content on digital signs connected to a Chromebox. Mvix Flex supports the full Mvix platform and is available through the Chrome Web Store. Essentially, Mvix Flex turns a Chromebox into a full-fledged digital signage player, delivering a powerful, reliable and secure platform for the signage market. It makes digital signage an option for organizations that couldn't consider it before.
Mvix provides a robust platform for managing large amounts of dynamic content and displaying it on digital signs, video walls, and interactive kiosks. Today, the platform powers over 50,000 active screens - for clients including Virginia Tech, NASA, Sodexo, Discovery Channel, TravelCenters of America, and University of Washington - in use cases that include employee communication, wayfinding, emergency messaging, and customer communications.
Mvix Flex for Chrome is just the first of the company's next-generation digital signage software platform. Instead of developing software that's unique to individual hardware devices, Mvix has developed a new platform that can be packaged to work with devices on several operating systems, delivering the same features and functionality on multiple platforms.
"Mvix Flex also allows us to expand the Mvix ecosystem to international markets," added A. Jay. "Chrome devices are readily available in Europe and Asia Pacific - eliminating the need for shipping and customs - and getting up and running is as easy as downloading the Mvix Flex app and signing in with existing Mvix user credentials."
Mvix Flex supports the latest software release of XhibitSignage and features an advanced HTML5 engine for:
- Support for all Google fonts
- Live Data integration via XML, JSON
- Fully-functional HTML5, CSS3, JS editor
- Role-based user management
- Live template zones
- Feature expiration tracking
- Smart playlist for automated playlist management
- Clean UI and management dashboard
Chrome devices provide a mix of performance, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and security that has not been available with traditional digital signage players. They can be centrally deployed and managed using Chrome Device Management, something critical to ANY network with devices deployed in more than one location.
Chrome also brings with it security, with features such as built-in hardware encryption and verified firmware boot. This makes it popular in education, government and health services sectors. These facilities are also already using Chrome Device Management to roll out Chromebooks and Devices for Meetings, so it'll be natural for them to leverage the same tools to manage and deploy Chromeboxes for digital signage.
Mvix is offering an introductory 90-day free trial of Mvix Flex for Chrome.
