avistaGO Web Player

The avistaGO web player supports two primary functions:-

  • It provides a fully integrated rich media broadcasting platform for promoting and advertising.
  • The web player allows authors & approvers to preview broadcasts using a standard web browser from any location around the world.

The avistaGO web Player is fully integrated into the avistaGO administration system so that you can author your Full HD broadcast and Web broadcast at the same time. The avistaGO solution automatically transcodes content to suit each of your in-store players and web players. Playlist navigation is automatically created so that you do not need to be a flash developer or understand programming to create web broadcasts. Everything is easily configured and authored in our web based administration system.

On-demand publishing

Every image and video published on an avistago web player is published dynamically from the avistago digital asset management system. Meaning, you can have multiple playlists of varying dimensions all requesting the same avistago content, and each broadcast receives images tailored-to-fit for optimum image quality. All published content is pre-processed, and pre-approved server-side, for optimum speed, performance and quality.

By using a secure digital asset management system hosted on a remote server we make it easy to find and use your creative media; plus you can allow partners to upload content or re-use your content or broadcasts.

When you buy an avistago player it comes complete with an administration system that allows you to add sales & campaign metadata to all media, creating a playlist is a very simple drag & drop operation. Now all you need to do is approve the content and playlist and assign to you web player. Avistago does not require any scripting or flash knowledge to publish a rich media broadcast.

Next time you want to modify your broadcast all you need to do is sign into the avistago administration system, checkout the player or playlist and change the content using a drag & drop metaphor. When you approve these changes your web player is automatically updated. It’s that easy, no using FTP programs, no updating complex flash slideshow applications.
