UCView is offering digital signage users a new way to choose their digital signage solution. Now, consumers will be able to download a demo version of UCView’s server software as well as use it on their own hardware and operating systems. After the trial period is over, end-users can continue using the software on their own servers with a monthly subscription plan.
Northridge, CA, May 14, 2015 –(PR.com)– UCView, a leading provider of digital signage solutions, announced free access to download and try its industry leading server software. The software will be available in multiple languages worldwide across Windows and Linux platforms. This innovative and resourceful solution will help boost the use of digital signage across multiple industries. Based on the needs of UCView’s end-users, the free digital signage server download option will help restructure how digital signage is targeted to consumers.
One of the greatest advantages of using the UCView platform is that the software is hardware independent. Users have the freedom to purchase digital signage hardware from UCView or simply run the downloaded software on their own players. This idea is keeping in line with the philosophy of giving customers the freedom to choose a solution which fits them best.
“We have a large number of users with varying levels of technical experience. Digital signage companies often forget that the main purpose of digital signage is communication. As a provider, we need to make sure that our consumers are getting just what they want without making the process difficult and unnecessarily expensive. Offering our end-users the opportunity to download a server for free will help mitigate the tedious task of setting up a digital signage network,” says Guy Avital, CEO of UCView.
The concept of a free demo server was created based on customer demands. The free trial software, available on Windows or Linux, will help achieve high quality of customer service. End-users will be able to choose whether to utilize a Windows or Linux server through the player client software (also available for download). The client will be able to support multiple operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, or ARM.
Consumers will have full enterprise-level content control and management while using the server demo. After the trial period is over, users can continue using the software on their own server and pay a monthly subscription just as they would for a SaaS subscription service. This licensing flexibility has never been tried before in the digital signage industry and is sure to change the way digital signage licensing is viewed.
