We are delighted to release a new and updated version of TrilbyTV! With refinements to the way things work behind the scenes and a refreshed look and feel, we’re excited to bring you this release including some key updates to our app.
Refreshing the interface
Our Content Catalogue, which is packed with great ready-to-go signage content, has received a refresh to bring the most used items up top. A new ‘featured’ area will highlight the latest and most relevant content, ideal for adding to your screens. We have great plans over the coming months to add more to the Content Catalogue. So keep your eyes peeled for new additions.
We’ve spent the last six months reviewing how TrilbyTV is used by watching how users interact and running through different use cases and scenarios. To improve the user experience when adding and editing content, we’ve made some changes to the location of the main action buttons. ‘Save’, ‘Delete’ and ‘View’ are now top right of the screen on the edit pages, while less-used actions have been moved to a ‘More’ menu.
Playlists have been updated with a new interface to help build and manage your own curated lists of content. Adding is easier than before with access to the same search and filter tools that feature in the main feed. Then it’s a simple drag and drop to reorder, or use the buttons to duplicate and remove playlist content as needed.
What is being refined?
As a cloud-based platform, we use many server-side technologies to keep things working smoothly. Behind the scenes, the team have been refining these processes and taking advantage of some new features in our hosting platform. This will bring speed improvements and ensure that content gets from our servers to your screens quicker than before.
These server-side improvements also pave the way for some of our 2023 development projects which include re-development of the TrilbyTV Player applications for Android and Apple TV. We’re investing in the team and product to continue our focus in building what education needs and wants in a digital signage platform.
Easier ways to navigate
We know that keeping the app simple and easy to use is a big reason for you to keep using us. While updating the back end, we’ve also refreshed much of the user interface. New icons, better layout and easier routes through the product mean you can rapidly update your content and get on with the rest of your day.
We’ve added tooltips throughout the interface to help you find your way around, along with a colour scheme refresh that brings better contrast to elements as they are clicked and used, improving accessibility throughout the app. As you get deeper into the app, a new navigation trail appears along the top of the screen, this helps you to navigate around the site quicker and more efficiently. Notifications also have a new home and have been moved to their own page found on the bottom left, along with the profile menu, so you’re always kept up-to-date.
Continuing to evolve
We hope you enjoy the new look-and-feel and the efficiency of the system-level changes. As always we would love to have your feedback to help us refresh and refine TrilbyTV further. There is a lot more on the 2023 development pipeline and we’re excited as always to be working with you to build the best digital signage platform for education.
