From February 6–9, 2018 on its own booth (Hall 8, C330) dimedis will be demonstrating how kompas can be used to play content concurrently without a play list and why it is important to integrate smartphones into all fields of application. For the first time, visitors to the ISE will be able to test the latest version of the award-winning software and, in particular, get to know the features that are relevant to the POS. The integration of professional HTML5 editors such as Tumult Hype and the new template manager facilitates the workflow between agencies, designers and digital-signage editors. A special feature of the new version of kompas is the template manager, which make the processes for the creation of content significantly easier. The trade fair appearance will be augmented by an interactive information column with digital wayfinding for shopping malls as well as with the award-winning Bosch Experience Zone. A special feature of kompas: kompas POS.pointer integrates digital signage into modern shopfitting. When a user selects a product by touching the column, it is illuminated in the adjacent shelf.
Première at ISE: Digital Signage Software kompas 9.0
With the latest version of kompas, dimedis is presenting a revolution in the digital signage market. The integration of professional HTML5 editors such as Tumult Hype and the new template manager facilitate the workflow between agencies, designers and digital-signage editors. A special feature of the new version of kompas is the template manager, which make the processes for the creation of content significantly easier. The editor creates the logical structure of the template in kompas itself using the new template manager. This allows the editor to define whether and which elements such as headers, texts or media appear in the template. A briefing document for graphic designers who build up the templates in HTML5 editors is thus created automatically. The templates import kompas, enabling the editor to use them. The entire process requires just a few clicks. The in-house or external graphic designer still uses his or her preferred HTML5 editor to create the actual content. The new interface thus saves a lot of time and briefings become clearer – and furthermore, service providers can be involved who may have little experience of digital signage but create HTML5 content for the customer’s website as a matter of routine. To date, the interface is one of a kind on the market.
Wayfinding on the dimedis booth
As yet another highlight, dimedis will be presenting kompas wayfinding on an interactive column like those used at the Abu Dhabi Mall or the NeuerMarkt shopping mall in Germany. On the dimedis booth, visitors to ISE will be able to try out the wayfinding solution for trade fairs and shopping malls for themselves. kompas wayfinding is an intuitive and intelligent wayfinding system. The interaction with kompas wayfinding takes place via a touchscreen. kompas wayfinding documents all the users' actions and search requests anonymously and thus serves as a permanent survey tool. The heart of this system is the intuitive LogoCloud:
