We are happy to announce the release of Display Control. A new feature available with Rise Player Professional that helps you conserve electrical usage, and extend the life of your digital signage hardware, by turning your screen on and off according to the Schedule your Display is assigned to.
This first release of Display Control leverages CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) for controlling the power to your screen. A subsequent release will support the ability to control the power of your screen using RS232. For more information check out the Display Control Overview Article in the Help Center.
In addition to Display Control, we're launching beta versions to both Rise Player and Rise Vision Apps. Using either beta version is completely optional, but is a great way for you or anyone in your organization to provide feedback on changes before they are released to the general public.
How do I configure Display Control?
You can configure Display Control from your Display Settings Page. For more information check out the Display Control Overview Article in the Help Center.
