Airtame Launches Digital Signage Apps with Trello, Unsplash and Google Slides
Airtame, a Danish startup that produces a wireless HDMI solution for both business and education sectors, has launched a new arm of their strategy with their first four digital signage apps - available in beta for free with all pre-existing customers.
Airtame’s step into the world of digital signage aims to revolutionize the way businesses and schools communicate signage, and put an end to blank standby screens. Each new app is set to encourage more collaboration among employees in office spaces, and active participation between students and teachers in classrooms.
The apps are released in beta form now as part of Airtame’s Homescreen software product.
“The launch of our first four digital signage apps indicate an exciting new direction for the Airtame solution. We think people can use screens better at work and at school. We’re proud to release these beta apps for free to our active customer base, and hope it will help encourage thousands more to instal the Airtame solution at their workplace,” says Simon Hangaard Hansen, Product Manager of Airtame.
- Google Slides app - sick slides directly from your Google Drive, and present as a slideshow to your standby TV screens.
- Unsplash app - showcase beautiful photography on your workplace homescreens, filtered by a search term of your preference.
- Trello app - set Trello project boards and to-do lists as the homescreen on any Airtame-powered TV.
- World Clock app - set up to 3 clocks to stay in tune with the time in the timezones of your colleagues or customers.
The company started out as a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign in 2014 during which they raised a total of [$ 1.3M / € 1.1M]. Since then, Airtame has grown into a company with over 70 people from across the world and have shipped over 85,000 devices.
Last month, Airtame was awarded a [$ 1.4M / € 1.15M / 8,5 m DKK] grant by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, which the company will put towards further digital signage product developments.
