New designing options thanks to the W-player

The MagicINFO WebAuthor empowers users with a lot of options when it comes to designing content and creating playlists. You can choose from all sorts of templates with different lay-outs, multiple backgrounds and fonts or you can even add those yourself. You can work with fancy stickers, shapes and use the colors of your choice. Last year Samsung extended the designing options by bringing in the W-player as a new player type to choose from.

New animations and effects
When you have the W-player activated and you open the Author multiple new animations are available. Using these will give an extra engaging experience and will really draw the eye. You have some new text styles to choose from, such as a neon text. It’s also possible to give an effect like a fade-in or Boomerang to the specific item on the page. We are sure that dynamic content almost always beats static content. It is one of the main reasons why digital signage is such a huge step forward over traditional signage. So with this, we think you can even create more amazing content. The W-player allows you to animate every single item on one page. However we often say “less is best” when it comes to content, having this as an option gives you full freedom in finding the right balance.  

CSS and Javascript
Next to new options in stickers, fades and animation widgets, it’s also possible to create your own animation by adding it as CSS code or Javascript. The ability to add code within the Author gives PowerPoint the knockout. Because you can simply create just anything. Aren’t you familiar with this code language? Just Google “css animations” and you will get a lot of results. Like a slide transition effect, an image animation effect, or an animated character for example, you will find all kinds of designs.
