Reflect Xperience enables brands to maintain centralized control of their digital signage content programs, while allowing individual users to easily and quickly schedule content specific to their location, easing the burden on content creation teams, improving local appeal of content programs and ensures consistency across locations. .
Reflect Xperience’s new mobile user interface makes scheduling faster, easier and even more intuitive by allowing any authorized user to update and schedule content directly from their mobile device.
Android media player support
ReflectView has long been the leading digital signage solution for Windows and BrightSign media players, and the company has now extended its reach to support Android media players. In addition to the vast majority of client applications using BrightSign and the range of specific applications for Windows media players, Android player support now allows customers to take advantage of system-on-chip solutions offered by major manufacturers. such as ELO and NEC. .
Customers can now deploy any combination of these three hardware platforms using ReflectView, benefiting from the industry’s most feature-rich, scalable and flexible digital signage platform.

The company continues to enhance its industry-leading network monitoring functionality with the addition of new device information APIs. These new API enhancements support calls to endpoints to periodically retrieve device state information, such as disconnected screens and various communication data from media players, including online state /offline, expired content and content read errors.
This approach dramatically reduces the amount of data needed to discern network status and identify endpoints that need attention. Additionally, these APIs allow IT managers to easily add performance insights from their digital signage network to existing monitoring tools, such as Power BI, further simplifying and optimizing network management.
