On March 11th an OnSign TV Platform update is scheduled for implementing additional user management and permission options. The changes will provide more granular and better control for configuring permissions to non-admin users.

The migration to the new permission system will be automatic and there will be no platform downtime, so no action will be required on your side. The platform will automatically match your account's existing permissions.

Improved Player Permissions

Up to now, player permissions were cumulative and displayed as a sliding bar.

This model is great but limited. As an example, it is not possible to give a user “Inspect  Permission", without also giving "Publishing" rights.

The new Player permission options will provide better control to what action each user can perform on a player or player group.

New Player Permissions will look like this:

As player permission options will be individually configured, it is important to understand the behavior of each permission:

  • Publish – Will enable a user only to publish and unpublish content to a player or player group.

  • Inspect – Will enable the user to view player/player group status, view events, list campaigns published, list player groups the current player belongs. This is read-only permission, so it is quite useful for users responsible for monitoring the network.

  • Settings – Will allow the user to access the player or player group settings menu.

  • Remove – Will enable the user to delete a player or player group.

In addition to the more granular control, it will also be possible to perform bulk permission changes.

Improved Player Permissions

Also, on this update, a new user permission will be available for allowing non-admin users to create reports. The new feature will show as follows on user creation

Once this permission is checked, the user will be able to create reports for all players that he has inspect permissions.

This month's featured app

We have just launched two Birthday Apps for you to display the current week's or month's birthdays.

  2. Link the spreadsheet to the App.
  3. Get ready for the party!

Check out the full tutorial: 
How to create the Birthday App

New resource usage graphs

The Resouce usage page is the go-to place when your players are not performing as expected. Now when using OnSign TV Android Player 9.7.17 and above, you will find three new graphs with additional player info: 


Track the player's temperature history. Too high temperatures are not good and can be the reason for hardware crashes.


Get to know the player's connectivity history. This is a great tool for tracking how good or bad is the player's connection.
  • The green graph shows the percentage of time your player was connected during the period.
  • The blue bar is the number of successful server requests the player has performed.
  • The red bar is the number of failed requests. 


Whenever applicable, you can also monitor the player's battery level. 
  • Make sure you have the latest version of OnSign TV Android App installed  (9.7.17) so you can track temperature, connectivity and battery level.
  • Specific resource info may not be available, as not all hardware manufacturers provide access to all data.

Multi-screen synchronized playback

Already available for Windows and LG webOS, now, more screens can take advantage of multi-screen content playback as we have just added support to Samsung SSSP, Chrome OS and BrightSign players!
Note: We recommend using the same OS device in synchronized groups to obtain the best performance.

With another year almost behind, it is a great moment for a quick recap to ensure none of the features launched goes under the radar.

2019 Highlights

User Experience - UX

New File Browser UI: We have unified different pages into a single content folder structure and also created some additional ways of interacting with the platform, like right-click and drag-and-drop.
Enhanced Search Tools: Finding content once you have several thousand files can be a tricky task. That's why we have added search filters such as type of content, modification date, folder, etc. 


Playlist enhancements: Now you can adjust default duration for apps and images added to a playlist. You can also get playlist duration while taking into account playback time and tag restrictions. Read tutorial
Default player group for new players: Now you can set a default player group, so any new player added to the network will automatically join the group. Read tutorial
Health Check: Quickly scan the network for small errors on the platform and get suggestions on how to fix it. Read tutorial
Folder permissions to restricted users: OnSign TV folder permissions follow a hierarchical architecture. Set the permissions of a folder and all files and subfolders under it will inherit the same permissions. This is an easy way to share all assets with restricted users. Read tutorial

New criteria for playlist duration estimate

While building your playlist, you may want to check its duration. To do this, simply click on the blue button "Estimate Playlist Duration".

Since each playlist item can have unique playback restrictions, you can simulate the duration considering:

The OnSign TV team is extremely happy to soon deploy a major platform update which will dramatically improve your content organization, user management and streamline your operations.
With many major customers adopting OnSign TV, we have been working on both UI and structural improvements so you can be more effective managing your signage network.

On March 18th you are going to get the largest OnSign TV update ever!

The OnSign TV Platform update will cover three main topics:

  • New Unique Folder Structure Across All OnSign TV Assets

  • New Enhanced User Permission System

  • New User Interface

New Folder Structure

Although folders are not a new thing to OnSign TV, now you will be able to manage all supported elements, campaigns, playlists, images, videos, HTML, apps, compositions, and audio, within the same folder structure.
Old Folder Structure
  • Isolated campaign folder structure
  • Isolated content folder structure
  • No folder support for Playlists
New Folder Structure
Campaigns, Playlists and Content can be organized within the same file structure

New Permission System

The new folder structure goes beyond just moving things around. Inspired by Google Drive, Dropbox and other popular cloud storage solutions, now you can set user permissions to each folder. Better yet, the permissions are hierarchical, meaning they also affect all files and subfolders.

New User Interface

To support the new feature, we have also implemented a new sleek UI. 
Take a look at this video to learn more about our new features!

Are you looking for an even better design? Or maybe optimizing your content schedule? It doesn't matter your goal, we bring important new features to address all needs: 

  • App - Two beautiful and exciting new weather forecast Apps
  • Playback duration - Get accurate playback duration for playlists and all content published to your players!
  • App restart - This is a new and easy way to restart the OnSign TV player app without actually rebooting the whole system. It is a handy trick to force the player to start fresh and check the content you have just published.

It is Hot in Here!

OnSign TV launched two new weather forecast layouts, so you have more options when setting up your displays:
The "Single Day Graph Weather" and "Multi Day Scrolling Weather" are:
  • Daily temperature chart forecast
  • Wind, rain, visibility and humidity
  • Portrait, landscape and footer format
  • Beautiful animated transitions

Get Playback Duration

Optimize player schedule by keeping strict control over playback duration. Get accurate duration for a single playlist or to all content published to your players!

Playlist duration

Campaign > Playlist
Playlists are great for whoever looks for simplicity and flexibility. It lets you easily add, remove content and set restrictions to each playlist item. Avoiding too much back and forth, all is done in a single place.
While the playlist is a powerful tool, things may get tricky once you build large and nested playlists, making it harder to determine the total playlist duration.
Now you have a dedicated button to easily get playlist duration!
Read full tutorial here

Get the duration for all campaigns in a player

Player > Select player > Playback loop
Likewise, you can get an estimate for the current playback loop duration within the player “Campaign Playback Loop” menu. Now it considers playlist duration when campaign cycling is enabled!
Important Note: Each time this page is loaded a different set of medias will be selected to represent playlists with cycling, this may also result in different total loop length.

Restarting the OnSign TV App

Although a new content published is downloaded almost instantly, the actual playback of the new medias will only start when the current campaign being presented is finished. This is a designed behavior to avoid content being interrupted on live screens as this would not be a good experience for your audience.
Still, there are times you may want to start the new published playback right-away. A simple way to do it, is by restart the OnSign TV App!

The Application Restart will quickly close and open the OnSign TV player without actually rebooting the whole operating system. This is a handy tool for those who want to force the playback of a new just synced content from start!

Just go:  Player > Select player > Settings (and click the button)
Stay tuned! We have more great news every month!
