New Features and Enhancements
Support for IAdea devices, ideal for room scheduling using our Room Schedule card.
The Appspace App is integrated on the IAdea device, and is only designed and tested for Room Schedule cards; thus we do not support advanced channels, live stream channels, videos, alerts, device tasks, or playout metrics. IAdea will use our generic Appspace for Android package and will report back to Appspace as ANDROID.
The following device has been tested and certified with Appspace:
- IAdea XDS-1078
Support for controlling LED lights for Crestron TSS devices running the Room Schedule card, that are attached to an LED accessory such as Crestron’s Room Availability Indicators. This allows users to quickly identify if a room is available or occupied through the LED light indicators that are mounted above meeting rooms.
You must update to the latest Room Schedule card (v1.4.0) to enable this feature. We currently support the following Crestron Room Availability Indicator devices:
- AE-5047 - The System.RebootEvents device property does not function correctly.
- AE-5206 - Playback issues on Appspace App for iOS.
- AE-5223 - Unable to register Appspace App on UWP devices on Appspace on-prem.
- AE-5244 - BrightSign XT1143 and XT1144 devices are unable to display content via the HDMI input video source.
- AE-5256 - The Appspace App launches automatically after rebooting a mobile device running Android and the App is set in user mode.
Technical Limitation & Workaround
BrightSign XT1144 devices running firmware 7.1.65 have the following limitations:
- Mouse cursor disappears when web content and cards are displayed in full screen.
- Unable to play a WMV file without audio.
- Unable to play multicast RTP streams.
BrightSign devices running firmware 8.0.48
- When the aspect ratio of the playlist is set to Uniform Fill (default), video content is zoomed in and cropped, unlike the behavior in BrightSign OS 7, where video content fills the screen while maintaining its aspect ratio.
The device may crash and reboot, after several playbacks of multiple cards in a channel playlist when in interactive mode.
Below is a list of LG webOS 4.0 issues that occur when Appspace App is in interactive mode:
A UI alignment issue when scrolling up or down; the channel group and channel name texts are not aligned at the bottom of the thumbnail image.
Flickering issues occur during the following instances:
- When loading video after an image playback.
- When channel playlist aspect ratio is set to Uniform.
Keyboard and mouse intermittently get disconnected or do not function when navigating channels.
Back button on the remote control does not function in the Device info page.
Universal Windows Platform (UWP)
Devices updated to Windows 10 version 1803 (OS build 17134.48) are unable to register Appspace App.
We recommend updating to the latest Windows 10 version 1803 (OS build 17134.122) or higher, to ensure UWP devices work seamlessly with Appspace App.
A cursor is displayed and does not disappear when a mouse is connected to the device, even when not in use. This is an OS limitation, where the UWP releases the cursor control back to the operation system, instead of the App, when there is switching between channel content, or web views.
We recommend disconnecting the mouse when not in use, until this is resolved.
