Just like the weather, displaying the calendar and date on digital signage might not be a “big deal”, but it is one of those critical aspects that will make your audience look at your screens, and they will, in turn, see your other messages.
The Date feature allows you to display today’s date or a specific date on your digital signage screen. It is great for pairing with Clock Media, Events, and Timers to help highlight specific dates of the year.
Although one of our most underappreciated features, displaying a calendar and date on your digital signage has a variety of uses. Display either the current date or a pre-selected date through one of our attractive themes. Keep your team informed by displaying the company’s calendar. By syncing to Google Calendar through Mvix CMS, you can exhibit your company’s events and meetings easily. When combined with our Clock or Weather feature, you can build the perfect dashboard to keep your employees up-to-date.
Here’s how it works:
- Update your calendar with descriptive notes on upcoming company events such as picnics or game nights.
- Link your Google Calendar with our calendar feature so all of your meeting and event information is in one place.
- Display the current time local time so that your employees and customers have an easy reference to confirm the time and date.
What You’ll Need:
- A compatible digital signage player e.g. Mvix, BrightSign, etc.
