Technical Overview

The technology and solutions used to build the Wave 2.0 Professional CMS platform has created an exceptional resource to help manage and monitor thousands of digital signage devices simultaneously by small content management teams. Product implementation tests proved that, by using our automation features, a 3-person team is capable of constant monitoring and management of over 4,500 screens with daily content change requests.

The general architecture overview below presents the main functional modules and features.

Media management

It might be truly challenging to manage hundreds of files on thousands of screens, but the Wave 2.0 Professional has just the right tools for doing that:

  • ZApply rules based on date & time
  • ZNest playlists inside playlists
  • ZMedia can be tagged, grouped, filtered
  • ZSearch and locate files immediately
  • ZReplace existing media files

Whether you need to insert two or more media elements next to each other, or on the top of each other, this tool will do the job well.
  • ZFull screen editor
  • ZLayer management
  • ZPosition layers precisely
  • ZVisibility options

Extensions

Sometimes a static medium is not enough. If you are looking for dynamic content that can present various data and media acquired from an external sources wave CMS is perfect for you:

  • ZCustomised extension
  • ZCustom development
  • ZAPI connection
  • ZXML, PHP, JavaScript compatible
  • ZConnect to POS, ERP, BI, DWH

Synchronisation

Wave 2.0 Professional enables two methods of content synchronization – the first one is based on GMT and the second one uses multicast communication between screens on the local network. If your screens have the same media length and start at the same time, they will be synchronised automatically. You can use multicast communication to achieve more advanced custom results.

Other features

Playback Report

Ever wondered how many times your video had been played in your network or on a particular screen? Wave 2.0 Professional will create a report that includes data like playback time, number of playback cycles, loop duration and total media playback time.

Security

Communication between the user and server is based on the SSL/TLS standard. Every registered user will be granted access via a pair of UUID (device ID) and unique ‘SECRET’ (password) autogenerated individually. User authentication only grants read-only access to its assigned content and configuration stored on the server (with the exception of certain features like screenshot upload and playback logging where write access is required).

The user interface access is protected by SSL/TLS. Two-factor verification uses both an e-mail address and a password. Users gain permissions according to the role-based access control system.

Every action that could change the state of the system is stored in the internal audit log. Access to users and content is based on “Network” grouping (i.e. user has only access to specified “Networks” regardless of their system role, with the exception of the system main administrator).

The user’s session is automatically stopped after a certain (configurable) time of inactivity. The server components of the system are based on the Linux platform and use its native isolation features (Docker & Cgroups/UID/PID separation). All communication among internal components is authenticated and carried out through a secure network.

User Roles

Users’ access control is based on RBAC (role-based access control) which allows for easy and flexible user management. Create a user profile, apply a selected role and you’re set!

Monitoring Module

In many cases, you have to keep your digital signage network up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To properly support such operational requirements, you need to know the status of your screens network as a top priority.

The consistent, unified dashboard shows information on the current status of all screens in your digital signage network, including storage utilisation and media update progress as well as any problems.
You can filter the screens using criteria based on name, description, status, tags or location groups for easy viewing, monitoring and managing of your content.

Media Smart Converter

Imagine how many media files cannot be presented or displayed properly because of the technical parameters. If you are not sure how to set things up, Wave 2.0 Professional will help you and convert your files to the required format automatically.

Auto ECO Screen Mode

When you set the time restrictions for your media, and if nothing is going to be displayed on the screen, it will automatically switch off the monitor or LED screen. We do not want you to incur unnecessary energy consumption costs and we do care about the environment. You can also set the location schedule for further customisation of the screen power off options.
