Helius has added to its array of satellite-delivered IP-video broadcast offerings with the launch of its new MediaSignage software package, a browser-based digital signage scheduling application tool.

The MediaSignage software package, which has onboard storage capabilities, does this by providing a "drag and drop" interface for the development of multimedia play-lists for playback at specific times on numerous displays. The tool allows content to be displayed in a one-, two- or three-panel format, with a main window, side information bar and ticker. Location and size of each panel is customizable to fit each business' needs.
