Requirement

ezeVue is an independent software/hardware vendor specialising in digital signage content management and display. The company has developed the ezeVue suite of products for delivering digital signage solutions incorporating single and multiple screen solutions.

ezeVue had a requirement to build two custom display widgets which could be integrated into their presentation software:

  • Weather plugin to interface with the Google Weather API and display information in different units and languages.
  • Car plugin to download an RSS feed and display a list of cars for sale.

Solution

ezeVue plugins

Codebrain developed the two plugins using Adobe Flash and ActionScript. The flash SWF files are configured using external XML configuration files and can be run through the standalone flash player. The plugins can also be managed through the ezeVue display software.

The weather plugin features custom animated weather icons.

The car plugin implements a simple pre-loader for the main RSS feed and external images.

Outcome

Both plugins integrated into the ezeVue software without issue and functioned exactly as specified in the requirements. Codebrain has been re-engaged to implement code changes as the car RSS feed underwent improvements.

Technologies

Adobe Flash, ActionScript, Adobe Photoshop, RSS, XML.

Feedback

"We have involved Stuart/Codebrain in a number of small developments. Each one was completed on time, to a high degree of quality and on budget. I would have no hesitation recommending Stuart to anyone who needs web/Flash/software development done."
