Features

Intuitive User Interface

With a concise and clear design, CAYIN CMS server’s new user interface allows you to handle the system in an instant and manage a great quantity of SMP players all at once. Moreover, help files are accessible through the help button on every page, navigating you through the learning process.

Efficient Management of Multiple Digital Signage Players

CMS-SE can control up to 4000 SMP players simultaneously*. All SMP players connecting to the server can be monitored through the server’s web-based user interface in two view modes: icon and list view. Instead of configuring media players one by one, you can manage all of them at the same time. Administrators can also locate SMP players on Google Maps when SMP players activate the location/GPS function.

Five-Layer Group Management

Administrators can create a maximum of five-layer groups to manage all SMP players systematically in two major aspects: content updates and task scheduling. CMS server will centrally control the playlists of all media players and synchronize content automatically to all players in groups. You can set the priority for each schedule in different layers to accommodate your need.
Intuitive Scheduling Management

You can insert a one-time event or arrange periodic tasks based on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly timescales for all SMP players in groups. Location-based scheduling is also doable to largely increase the flexibility. SMP players will playback multimedia content automatically based on the schedule assigned by the CMS server. CMS provides two viewing modes, calendar and timetable, for you to facilitate schedule management.

Secured Decentralized Management

Administrators can create multiple user accounts and authorize each account to possess different access rights. Usernames and passwords are required to access the user interface and media folder.

Ready-to-use Digital Signage Server

CMS-SE, a dedicated content management server software for digital signage networks, is easy to install, and ready-to-use on your hardware*. Not only will you enjoy a seamless user experience, but you can also manage the device remotely from your web browser.

One-Time Investment

There are no extra fees or licenses for adding media players to work with the CMS server, no matter the number.

CMS-PRO

An Add-On Module For Advanced Management

CMS-PRO provides administrators with more efficient and advanced central management, especially when it comes to implementing digital signage projects of different scales. The software is an add-on module embedded in a CMS server and must be purchased separately.

Access Detailed Information of SMP Players Efficiently

Administrators can check the details of system information, log records, and content update status of multiple SMP players without logging in the user interface of each SMP player one by one.

Perform Time-Saving Batch Configuration

Configurations, such as multimedia playback, local schedule and system settings, can be synchronized between the benchmark player and all the other selected players simultaneously.

Monitor Live Status of Multimedia Playback

Administrators can check the screenshots of a maximum of 15 SMP players per page simultaneously, receiving instant updates of each SMP player.

Provide Instant Alert Mechanism

The system will indicate those abnormal devices whenever any disconnection between a SMP player and a CMS server is detected. Administrators can also receive an alert notification via Email.
