New York, February 3, 2014 – YCD Multimedia, a leading global provider of smart digital signage solutions, today announced that it will launch a new player aimed at in-store marketing at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), to be held February 4-6, 2014 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. YCD|LivePlayer allows retailers to deploy in-store digital signage by leveraging the latest Android-based players and tablets and smart displays.
YCD|LivePlayer 1.0 will be available in two editions – an Android application available on the Google Play store, and as a downloadable player for Samsung Displays with SMART Signage Platform (SSP), the latter operating on the display’s built-in SSP engine without the need for any player hardware.
Both editions are managed by YCD|RAMP – YCD’s browser-based Retail Advertising and Merchandising Platform – which uses smart templates to create effective call-for-action content with unsurpassed simplicity, and in a rapid time-to-market. With Point of Sale (POS) integration, retailers can have their displays (such as menu boards) reflect real-time inventory changes and display complementary items during checkout to help cashiers upsell high-margin products.
YCD|LivePlayer channels managed by YCD|RAMP offer many features normally associated with higher-cost products, such as real-time status and player health monitoring, remote control, real-time remote screen snapshots, playback information, and more.
“YCD|LivePlayer plays an extremely important role for YCD, reflecting our focus on retail verticals. It allows our customers to promote products and provide shoppers with targeted information, assisting retail processes such as traffic, wayfinding and igniting the purchase process, buying decision assistance, seller assistance, and strengthening brand loyalty,” said Eran Sharon, VP of Product Management, YCD Multimedia. “With Samsung’s excellent SSP, which offers player-less digital signage, and the ever-increasing availability of commercial grade Android devices, users can choose from a variety of devices for a true BYOD (“Bring Your Own Device”) approach. This release is just the beginning of what will surely be a game changer for us, our partners, and their users.”
