Stack is an advanced modular framework, which has been developed to not only enable remote access to control shows and content, but also to access other Stack Modules including our Digital Signage and Closed Captioning solutions as well as dynamic content such as RSS or Twitter Feeds.
Stack allows for content management and dynamic content modules to be easily added to your core modules that are built in to every Delta Media Server configuration.
Dynamic content modules enable real-time content to be used within your media shows, whilst the content management modules enable full customisation of your displays.
The core modules for Delta Media Server provide functionality to remotely control the day-to-day operation of a typical Delta installation. An extensible API and SDK is also available for more advanced use by developers to create more complex interactive projects.
The Control module enables you to tap into any Delta Media Server on your network to:
- View the server status
- Load a show (from those available)
- Start/Stop/Monitor running sequences
- Monitor all timelines and control play state
- View markers and move the play head to markers
- Work with a flexible, simple, drag-and-drop user interface designer for tablets and touchscreens
- Benefit from a comprehensive scheduling system to trigger sequences of actions at pre-defined times, dates and intervals
- Have individual control of timelines, start/stop of sequences, navigation between markers and loading show files
- Monitor server status information including OS level statistics such as free disk space and network interfaces
- Implement user authentication to prevent unauthorised access
The Designer module offers a variety of drag-and-drop widgets, effects and simple text-based coding to allow you to create a bespoke user interface for remote show control from touchscreen devices.
Our flexible scheduling capability allows sequences to be scheduled and repeatedly run in accordance with show requirements.
- Fully documented HTTP API for discovering and interacting with Delta Media Servers over the local network
- A PHP SDK library to integrate control of Delta Media Server directly into PHP applications with hosting capabilities on the server
- Add-on framework for developing fully customisable web extensions including user interfaces and interactive web resources
