How Our Systems Work
Direct Digital is a managed solution, consisting of a hosted server, and a locally installed endpoint. The endpoint consists of a bespoke endpoint player and a flat-panel screen that connects to the network via ethernet cable.
The endpoint needs access to the internet to connect to our hosted server that facilitates two way communications between the installed system and its hosted server allowing it to obtain new content.
The endpoint uses the Microsoft Windows Operating System, with the following applications and functions —
Icons (Visual Basic, Bespoke Digital Signage Software)
LogMeIn (Remote Connectivity Software for System Maintenance and Support)
Adobe Flash Player 10
The Server hosting our bespoke digital signage software ICONS is located in our own data centre, in a dedicated DMZ behind Palo Alto firewalls. The ICONS content server connects to a separate SQL server. The servers are currently running Windows 2008 R2, with SQL 2008 R2 supporting our bespoke Visual Basic ICONS content management system.
