RENSSELAER, N.Y. - Oct. 8, 2015 - PRLog -- Innio, a startup with its roots in the digital signage system its founders developed while attending college, has released a subscription-
Innio's Concerto service uses a variety of small-form-factor computers running Linux to display public signage on televisions. Users may submit textual, graphical, RSS, video, and other web content for display on topical feeds. With its origins in a collegiate environment, Concerto avoids the more centralized and complex workflows of most commercially available signage software. Using its plugin architecture, Concerto integrates with existing data sources and infrastructure, such as calendaring and emergency management systems. Subscriptions to Concerto can be purchased at www.concertohq.com.
Concerto began as a student government project at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute targeted at spreading student-created postings across campus. It used a decentralized network of students and moderators to create and approve content, largely supplanting the highly centralized cable television-based network that preceded it. Concerto's web-based nature allowed each screen in its network to have a theme and content tailored to its location, and it proved popular with numerous colleges and businesses worldwide.
Innio is a hosted web software company founded by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute alumni who created the open-source Concerto signage software. Its founders are of the opinion that web software carefully crafted with simplicity in mind trumps complex, legacy technology with no clear price tag.
