Aptil 1, 2015 - SeQent announced the availability of the 3rd generation of Marquee Manager VideoSERVER - the Web Edition. This new solution will enable any HTML5 WebSocket compatible browser (Android 4.x+, IOS 7+, Google Chrome, Windows IE 10+, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) to display Marquee Manager ANDON data on smartphones, tablets and Cisco Edge digital media players (DMP) connected to LCD displays.
The VideoSERVER solution is a component of the Marquee Manager suite of products. The 2nd generation of the VideoSERVER was developed in partnership with Cisco to support their digital media players (DMP). In addition to the DMP product line, those smartphones running FLASH have also been involved in the testing and certification. The first generation, which includes the configuration editor tool and emulator, allows you to connect any LCD monitor, video projector or digital signage to a TCP/IP network.
“With this new web interface development, a true mobile ANDON solution is born that can piggy back on the LED & LCD displays on the shop floor. This, coupled with the use of Marquee Manager and numerous SeQent gateways provides the most reliable and robust ANDON solution in the marketplace. Key tactical and strategic information can be displayed from Life Safety, Maintenance, Production and Quality systems on multiple platforms and devices” says Scott Burns, SeQent’s Chief Technology Officer.

The VideoSERVER product is available as a hardware appliance that includes the emulator license or as a software only license. Pricing is per appliance and the emulator software license is per device or available as a site license.
