The latest release includes smart application and integration tools for Dropbox, Tumblr, 500px, Etsy, Mashape, Yelp, Pinterest, Good Drive v2, Flickr and Twitter v2. The latest releases allow digital sign network operators more control and options over the types of content their users can view and interact with on-screen. The new components also provide more relevant targeting and interactivity for end-users, allowing business owners to be more selective in honing in on the types of content most relevant to their company’s demographic.

What follows is a description of each of the latest smart components, newly integrated into the company’s flagship platform, the SignageStudio:

Pinterest – Users can browse and pin their favorite content from the web. And now they can integrate their entire Pinterest content right onto their digital signage presentation. It’s easy to setup and will keep audiences engaged in quality content.

Tumblr – It lets users effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos from a browser, phone, desktop, and email. Users can customize everything, from colors to a theme’s HTML. And best of all, content can be also be pushed right into a signage presentation.

Flickr – Upload photos and share them on public displays. Popular photo-sharing site Flickr is a also a photo hosting service with advanced and powerful features. It supports an active and engaged community where people share and explore each other’s photos.

Dropbox – Dropbox integration was one of the most requested features and it’s finally here. Dropbox is a home for all photos, docs, videos, and files. Anything a user can add to Dropbox will automatically show up on all their computers and of course, also inside their digital signage presentation.

500px – It is a photo community for discovering, sharing, buying and selling inspiring photography powered by creative people worldwide. And with our component, users can load their favorite 500px images directly into their presentation.

Etsy – Its a peer-to-peer e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items. Now users can have their favorite store as part of their digital presentation.

Yelp – People use Yelp to search for everything from the city’s tastiest burger to the most renowned cardiologist. With the Yelp component users can display their favorite Yelp business information and even show live updates on the latest Yelp review, Yelp score and even star posts.

Mashape – It’s a great way to get relevant live data such as current Bitcoin rates, currency exchange rates or even cool movie quotes straight to a digital signage screen.

Google Drive v2 – In version 2 of Google Drive we added support for folders. So users can now pick any specific folder and drill down to deep content. We also completely refactored the caching system for offline playback, so it works flawlessly.

Twitter v3 – In version 2 we added support for Twitter images, additional fields and also completely refactored the caching system for offline playback, so it works flawlessly.

“We’re extremely excited about what the new components mean for both network operators and end-users,” says Nate Nead, company president. “We’re at a growth inflection point as a company and as an industry. We’re just providing the tools that allow our customers to succeed mightily.”

MediaSignage screens are currently installed in bus stations, restaurants, movie theaters, retail establishments, schools, government facilities and corporate offices.

Wyndstorm Corporation Rolls Out Virtual 3-D Party Scene for Beta Tests: 3-D Worlds, Avatars Become Backdrop for Kisses, Flirts, Audio-Visual Chats in New Lifestyle Entertainment Platform from Social Media Marketing Company Wyndstorm Corporation

WASHINGTON (PRWEB) March 17, 2008

    “RipLounge illustrates the value of Wyndstorm’s end-to-end solution,” said Marian Sabety, President and CEO of Wyndstorm. “When Stable Media approached us in September 2007 to build an entertainment platform, we offered them program design development, hosting and content management, as well as our online marketing expertise in order to build out their cool online destination where friends can hang-out and have fun together. RipLounge represents a new breed of networks, taking social media solutions to a new level,” Sabety continued.

Unlike other 3-D virtual worlds, RipLounge doesn’t require users to download any software. It provides a target market of 25- to 40-year-old social media users much more than a static profile. Instead, users get a sleek, interactive online experience of free virtual worlds, such as a swanky nightclub, beaches, and yachts, where they can meet, dance, flirt, kiss, hold-hands, and audio-visual chat. Via personalized 3-D animated avatars, users can invite friends to join the interactive social environment. RipLounge will showcase independent music artists, some of whose tracks will be available for download and play back. Advertisers will benefit from the targeted in-scene advertising, as well as the flexible profile-based data, available throughout RipLounge. Over the upcoming months, RipLounge will be expanded with new scenes and additional features for enriched member experiences.

“We are pleased to see the RipLounge project move to production,” said Andrew Stern, co-founder of Stable Media. “This has been a strong collaborative effort. Wyndstorm provided disciplined project development and deep technical expertise to drive this program to success, and we applaud the Wyndstorm team in reaching this key launch moment,” said Stern.

“RipLounge was designed to take social networking to the next level,” said David Abelson, co-founder of Stable Media. “Advertisers can choose how they want to be seen within the community. We’re trying to break away from the typical ad placements that users are not engaging in. We want to follow the lead of television and film in their ability to effectively advertise through product placement and content integration which enhances brand exposure while maintaining the integrity of the user experience,” Abelson added.

RipLounge is scheduled to open its doors April 1 and will debut to digital world at the Ad:Tech San Francisco trade show April 15 to 17.
