Digital signage software company TrilbyTV has announced the launch of three fantastic new features. Following the launch of their “Word of the Day” feature in collaboration with Vocabulary Ninja last month, they have been working hard to bring the TrilbyTV community of schools even more ways to inspire staff and students alike.
The new features include;
Twitter 2.0 – This feature has been popular allowing users to showcase individual Twitter feeds, while filtering via hashtags. This new release means your Twitter feed on your screens never looked so good. The screen layout now supports multiple images so if you tweet more than one image the layout automatically updates, while supporting GIFs and Videos. Hashtag support has been improved and you can now include a feed on your digital signage based on a hashtag. This is great for conference or event days, or to follow a particular trending topic.
Slideshow 3.0 – Adding a folder of images or a PowerPoint to TrilbyTV is the quickest and easiest way to update your digital signage. Now with the new ‘Auto fill screen’ feature, your images will automatically be scaled to fill the screen. TV screens have a 16:9 aspect ratio while most digital cameras take 5:4 pictures leading to black borders at the top, bottom or sides of the screen. Auto fill screen fixes this and it’s automatic so you don’t have to tweak each image. New editing tools in Slideshow 3.0 let you manually change the framing of your image and zoom in if you want to see more detail.
Content Catalogue -We have a collection of great resources from respected educational providers and services in the Content Catalogue. Now they are joined by five new tools that we have made to keep your screens looking amazing and up-to-date.
• Social Slide
Show your visitors your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube usernames so they can easily follow you and stay connected anywhere.
• Birthday Slide
Everyone likes to see their name on the screen and with the Birthday slide, everyone gets that annual recognition of their birthday. It’s easy to update from your school’s MIS with our CSV import feature or you can add and edit individually.
• Inspirational Quotes
A set of beautifully presented motivational, and mindful quotes which you can add to with your own.
• Notice Cards
When you need to get a quick message out to everyone you can use a Notice card and set a time and date to start and stop showing the note. Great for out of hours messages or use in the staffroom as a bulletin board.
• Staff Board
A digital signage version of the staff photo board, which is so much easier to update with the click of a few buttons. Create one board for the whole school or separate boards for each department. Great for the reception screen to show the crucial Safeguarding leads information to visitors.
TrilbyTV created in 2015, is the number one digital signage platform made for education. Founders Ben Stanley & Neil Emery were Technology Trainers, who were fed up of walking into reception areas and seeing TV screens switched off. After investigating further and plugging in a cable or two, they’d usually find the Christmas play pictures from five years ago. When looking into why the screens were switched off initially, there seemed to be a pattern; the software was too hard to use and had to be constantly micromanaged by the IT department. This is why they created TrilbyTV, the easy to use digital signage software that gives users ownership and control of their own content.
The platform offers a full range of content options for digital signage including video, slideshows, Twitter feeds and web content. It also contains a content catalogue, full of education-focused ready to use content from well known and trusted organisations.
