The updated API lets ISVs add eye-catching transitions and effects to their video wall software. It also provides a high-performance HTML5 renderer that enables integration of social media, weather information, animations and other online data feeds into digital signage.
The offering enables content from baseband sources, streaming network sources, local media players and live HTML feeds will be captured, moved, scaled, switched, rotated, zoomed, faded, alpha blended and color keyed with stunning visual quality. Multiple transitions can be combined to create an endless variety of complex, striking effects.
