Integrated digital signage system now displays e2Campus alerts automatically
From the Digital Signage Expo (DSE), Omnilert® LLC today announced that MagicBox has become the latest e2Campus Certified Endpoint Provider (CEP). MagicBox’s Aavelin digital signage systems are now easily configurable to automatically receive and display e2Campus alerts.
The integration allows clients to send e2Campus alerts automatically and simultaneously to the school's digital signage system without the need for accessing MagicBox separately. This speeds the delivery and accuracy of critical messages to the client’s entire digital signage network because no human intervention or oversight is required after initial setup. This also means students and others who haven't enrolled in e2Campus may still get the alerts from the school’s LCD displays run by MagicBox. An alert issued in e2Campus will automatically override current MagicBox display content within one minute.
“We’re very excited to be a CEP,” says Tom Searcy, President of MagicBox, Inc. “Now when you post a notification or emergency message using e2Campus, that message can also be displayed almost instantly on your Aavelin. Finally, you can reach those people who are walking the corridors or working out at the gym or taking a break in the cafeteria and who may not be checking their text messages or emails.”
e2Campus clients who have MagicBox’s products installed can quickly and easily connect e2Campus to MagicBox by adding the Emergency Notification Widget from MagicBox priced at $375 USD. There are no additional fees from e2Campus for the connection. e2Campus clients interested in MagicBox should contact their e2Campus account manager for details.
