kompas smart.remote – more interactive Digital Signage!

Wilhelm Halling, founder and managing director of dimedis, had this to say about the latest version of kompas:

WilhelmHalling“kompas 6.0 sets new standards for the industry. It is one of the first Digital Signage solutions to fully support HTML5. dimedis has relied on web technologies from the very beginning; HTML is in our blood and that philosophy has turned out to be the right way. kompas runs in the browser without the need to install any software and it is the ideal tool to manage content across large, nationwide networks efficiently. By directly integrating Adobe Edge Animate with kompas, we have a powerful content and template authoring tool at our disposal. With Adobe Edge Animate, users can create visually appealing, dynamic Digital Signage content based entirely on HTML5. We are proud to offer our customers further improved stability and interactivity with the new version. Interactivity is an ever growing trend in the Digital Signage business and kompas 6.0 is at the forefront of that movement.”
