Cnario Suite is a complete digital signage playback, distribution and content management platform for informational, educational and commercial messaging. This software suite constitutes a full end-to-end digital signage solution, creating an industry first all-in-one digital signage content management platform.
Cnario enables creation, management, monitoring and control of digital signage networks through easy-to-follow workflows that provide low total cost of ownership.
Layouts are Cnario’s way of harnessing the power of multi-display authoring in a simple, flexible and convenient toolkit. Whether a single screen, video wall or collage, Cnario lets you focus on your content’s visual impact and not which displays receive what content.
With Cnario you get the powerful scheduling capabilities you need without sacrificing flexibility and ease of use. Organize and schedule your content in three easy ways.
This real-time component bundled with every Cnario player actively monitors the player application as well as key functions of the player PC. WatchDog can identify and automatically resolve performance and reliability issues with minimal visible impact. Should the need arise, WatchDog can even restart the player PC all while reporting application and PC health to the CMS in real-time.
Cnario’s intelligent distribution uses “push and store” logic, where each player holds all of the required playlists and media assets required for playback per its scheduling and is never dependent on connection to a CMS, a streaming server, etc. Cnario automatically keeps players up to date and plays the latest version of the content. Every file is identified using a 128Bit “hash” key referenced in the playlist (or other content items) which ensures content validity. The entire process is fully monitored by the CMS with to-the-byte progress and completion tracking on an asset-by-asset basis.
Cnario’s built-in permissions engine provides system administrators with the ability to create and manage collaborative workflows for users inside and outside the organization. These permissions can be role or department-based, integrated within the organization’s active directory, defined according to a multi-level approval workflow, and even restrict access and actions right down to the individual channel and content item.
Cnario’s intelligent distribution engine delivers on scalability, resiliency, and network efficiency. By placing dedicated gateways (and players doubling as gateways) at strategic locations, IT administrators can freely design a network with multiple “star” and “daisychain” topologies.
Ensure frame accuracy regardless of the type, size, and duration of your content. Create choreographed sequences, animations, and complex logic involving many visual items, and spread them across the entire canvas.
Cnario provides incredibly smooth playback with its powerful playback engine. This engine enables us to address every pixel in a canvas (even very large ones) by driving each display in its native resolution. For the extra-large canvases, Cnario uses multi-CPU frame synchronization that maintains perfect sync across the multiple computers that drive the canvas. This ensures that all displays in the canvas operate as one cohesive video wall. You never need to do anything to keep everything looking perfect, Cnario keeps it up and running… from the start.
For installs requiring maximum uptime, Cnario players can be configured to run redundant channels. During playback, the system continuously monitors every player and automatically reverts to a backup unit in case an error occurs minimizing disruption on playback.
Deliver powerful customer experiences built in today’s interactive platforms – HTML5, WebGL and more. Utilize the Cnario visualization engine to display responsive content in real time across multiple displays and the Cnario API to integrate with external data sources.
Harness Cnario’s device integration API for seamless interface and activation between content, external readers, sensors, automation systems, and connected peripherals.
