TiC Narrow Casting, the technique
The technical features of TiC Narrow Casting.
The TiC Narrow Casting Manager is the heart of our software. This software application can run both within your network environment (TiC Narrow Casting Local) or be hosted externally (TiC Narrow Casting Online). from the Manager, you plan all content for the connected players at the screens. When the players have received new content, they will run this from then on from their stored memory. Because of this, the load on the network is kept to a minimum and the screens will continue to show content even if the network becomes interrupted. The manager environment can also be expanded in a modular way and can be completely managed regarding rights structure for users and allocated (sub) groups of screens.
Manager player-01 For this, the software is installed on a stable industrial mini PC (the player). In reality, these players are the receivers to which you distribute the information from the Manager. They are usually placed close to or immediately behind the screen. As a rule, there will be one per screen, but it is possible to have multiple screens with the same content connected to one player.
For a complete solution, you will need our software licenses and TiC players (hardware). Would you like more technical information about our software and/or advice about the local (on-site) or online (off-site) solution? Then contact us.
