Periodic Reporting for period 2 - AirPlatform (An open integration platform for professional displays)
Reporting period: 2019-05-01 to 2020-02-29
The aim of the AirPlatform is to bring a new platform which can enhance collaboration and communication within organisations. In order to achieve that, we're utilising the largely unused screen surfaces within the organisations, by showing useful, creative and informative content on their bigger screens. To create the best experience, we're developing an app ecosystem, where custom apps tailored for the large displays provide insights into how an organisation is performing and allows sharing of useful information though apps and integrations.
As part of this project, we've built and integrated several apps which show the way on how large screens could be useful for an organization, and throughout this process, we've learnt about what kind of expectations and requirements they have for a platform such as AirPlatform, and what are the technical requirements for APIs and SDKs in order for them to be useful for 3rd party developers to integrate their own solutions.
We've also extended the AirPlatform with some highly requested and very valuable features, such as better management of devices, ability to build playlists (rotate between multiple apps), have a better power save policy to make our device more environmental friendly as well as other features, such as the website login, which allows access to dashboards and content behind a login.
