Omniscreen Pilot™ is an enterprise TV and digital signage application server. The software component of the platform is provided either as an appliance or as a SaaS offering deployed in the Cloud. The hardware components of a system include digital TV and radio gateways, computer servers, set-top boxes, smart TV displays and other devices as applicable.
The design is based on Internet Protocol and web services. Structured data cabling (or managed wireless Ethernet) are typically used for connectivity, but legacy infrastructure can also be catered for. This is a reliable system proven in commercial deployments under 24/7 operating conditions.
Pilot is a versatile entertainment, information and digital signage solution, which can be customised to most enterprise requirements. Ultimately, one of the most successful implementations today is the aged care resident engagement and video information system for Southern Cross Care (Victoria).
This is a purpose-built solution, which facilitates the delivery of many important services in an aged care facility.
1. Resident and visitor information
This services package consists of modular applications, which can be picked and customised for a given operator as required. For example, it may include Announcements, Activities , Weather, Dining Menu, Location, etc. Thanks to our metadata-driven web services concept, most system applications can be location- and audience- specific. Dining menu can be managed/uploaded by a chef using an iPad; no IT training is necessary.
2. Resident Entertainment
This may include Live TV, Radio (including all new digital radio stations), in-house video channels (e.g. chapel camera feed), Video On-Demand and TV/video recording.
3. Social and family media sharing
Every user of the system has an account with securely managed set of entitlements. This enables families, administrators and aged care specialists alike to share photos and videos from their databases and mobile devices.
4. Media aids for treatment programs
This is a subset of our media management functionality customized to the specialists’ requirements (e.g. dementia)
5. Compliance reporting
This includes the ability to export data from the system database and generate various reports.
