Content Manager Desktop (CMD) 

Our Content Manager Desktop (CMD) allows you to build, deploy, and maintain your Visual Communications network in a rich desktop environment. With a drag-and-drop interface, built-in layout editor, and multiple deployment methods, CMD is an intuitive system that enables you to leverage your current content to quickly get your digital signs up and running. It seamlessly connects to the FWI Cloud to support large, multi-user networks—enabling a true enterprise solution.

CMD integrates advanced functionality into your digital signage network without the need for a designer or developer.

  • Multiple content channels make it easy to change sign scenarios
  • Versatile sign deployment: static signs, interactive signs, desktop players and browsers
  • Use over 50 transitions to switch between pieces of content or pages of data
  • Reports functionality back to Content Manager
  • Standalone applications for various situations—like network outages

Content Manager Web (CMW) 

Our Content Manager Web (CMW) provides the convenience of managing your Visual Communications network from any browser. CMW uses a similar drag-and-drop user interface as CMD so you can easily switch between both products. Preview content through your web browser or download an embedded Content Player for preview directly on your desktop. You can also monitor your entire Visual Communications network through CMW. Set variables and conditions, expand locations, and edit content playlists from any browser.

In addition to the content management features found in CMD, CMW also allows you to publish visual applications to mobile devices and tablets.

CMW works in most HTML5-compliant browsers and can be hosted in FWI Cloud or in your own cloud environment.
