Mvix Unveils Digital Signage App for Amazon Fire TV
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sterling, VA. August 18, 2016: Mvix, a leading provider of cloud-based digital signage solutions, today announced the launch of a feature-rich digital signage app, the Mvix Andros App. Available on the Amazon AppStore, the Andros App turns the Amazon Fire TV® into a digital signage player to power a display network.
The Andros App, a natural extension of Mvix’s digital signage platform, simplifies digital signage significantly. With the app, the hardware requirements for digital signage are simplified to a $39.99 Amazon Fire TV Stick which turns any TV into an HD digital signage screen.
Powered by the cloud-based software, SignageCreator, the app enables users to manage their digital signage screens remotely. SignageCreator offers hundreds of professionally designed digital signage templates accessible via a standard web-based browser. The software enables users to fully customize the templates and update them in real time via an easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor. The robust web-based signage editor breathes life into signage content with effects such as image and text animations, image slideshows, template playlists, layer transparency, and more.
“Today’s environment is one where technology, application, and price have converged to create new opportunities for communication. The Andros App is a product of this environment,” said A. Jay, the Mvix Senior Director of Business Relations. “The beauty of the Andros App is how dramatically it simplifies the process of doing digital signage. Marrying this competitively-priced enterprise app with the technology of the Amazon Fire TV Stick makes for very compelling value.”
The Mvix Andros App plays into the emergence of the popular BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) culture, allowing businesses to meet communication goals more efficiently. Not too long ago, we went to the library to conduct research, to the mailbox to send or receive a letter, to the living room couch to watch television. In other words, we went to the device or the area from which the exchange of information occurred.
Today, advancements in technology have morphed the historical ways information was exchanged into the wireless mobile age. These advancements have given us more control over where and how we communicate and consume information. The Mvix Andros App follows in this direction by giving users complete control over the device and software that drives their digital signage screens. Users are no longer tied to a digital signage vendor and are instead opened up to a more versatile device and technology partner.

- Manage unlimited number of displays from one account.
