Capital Networks Limited, a leading global provider of dynamic digital signage content creation and management software, has announced the release of the latest version of the Audience for Android digital signage solution – Audience for Android v2.

In June 2012, the Audience for Android v1 media player and software bundle was one of the first Android offerings brought to market providing a cost effective, but powerful alternative to traditional PC based digital signage deployments, going on to win a pair of new product industry awards over the course of the year.

“We were interested in releasing a product and establishing a ‘high-water mark’ of what customers should be able to expect from Android OS media players. We ensured that our Android OS media player had the advanced features that help customers reach the full potential of their digital signage deployments”, Jim Vair, Vice President of Business Development at Capital Networks explained. “We feel the upgrades featured in the new release are a continuation of that commitment, with many of the new additions based directly on customer feedback”.

Designed to co-exist with existing Audience digital signage deployments, Audience for Android is able to take advantage of the advanced Audience content management system. Some of the key features found within Audience for Android v2 include:

  • Up to 1080p resolution supported
  • Video in a zone supported
  • Landscape and Portrait orientation
  • Touch interactivity
  • HTML5 support
  • Real time scheduling
  • Support of single and multi-zone layouts
  • Support of live data feeds
  • As Run Logs for content verification
  • MP4, H264, JPG, BMP and MNG animation support

Also designed with scalability in mind, Audience for Android provides a user friendly, cost effective solution to network operators just entering into the digital signage market, as well as established network operators looking to expand existing installations.

“Over the course of the past year, we’ve found our Android solution provided clients the opportunity to think on a larger scale, when their original deployment plan may have been more limited, often due to cost”, said Vair. “While many of our clients running higher performance digital signage networks still require a Windows OS media player, we’ve found that the Audience for Android solution has provided new opportunities that may not have existed otherwise”.


“I can honestly say it has been a long time since I have been so impressed with a company. I can assure you, you now have my business for all future purchases and I will be more than happy to refer other businesses to you. Company service like that exhibited by your staff is exceptionally rare, and I commend you for the obvious company-wide attitude that your customers are a priority.”

- Shelia Hogue, Marketing Manager, Glasgow EPB

“Once again, I want to express my gratitude towards the friendly, patient and knowledgeable Capital Networks Technician Jim Osmond. He has been a big help to both myself and Chippewa Valley Schools. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Jim Osmond and the Capital Networks Tech Department are definitely one of the reasons Chippewa Valley Schools continues to use Audience.”
