Learn what is working under the hood of Valotalive. The modern and real time digital signage software that provides you a scalable and robust platform for the future.

17.6.2021 WebSocket roll out to Valotalive customers will begin in June 2021.

Valotalive enables real time communication with WebSocket

What is WebSocket? 

WebSocket is a communication protocol that provides a full-duplex bi-directional communication channel between a client and a server over TCP. Like users use HTTP and HTTPS to get web pages, servers use WebSocket to talk with clients (like browsers). And vice versa.

In plain language in our context this means that the Valotalive displays are always online and get real time data.

What are the benefits of WebSocket technology

Keep teams informed in real time 

Efficient and productive businesses prioritize data-driven communication. Machines and Teams rely on integrated, real time data. 

Cloud based tools such as modern digital signage services instantly connect people and teams with live data and information. The communication between Valotalive cloud and displays is real-time enabled by WebSocket technology.

Enjoy better user experience

The commands and interaction with Valotalive are real time. Some examples are:

  • Pairing a display
  • Reload commands
  • Assigning an App or Flow to a display
  • Changes to the display settings, such as titles or statusbar
  • Activating an emergency message
  • And much more…

All of these commands are handled instantly, making the use of the service a pleasant experience.

Foundation for further development

WebSocket based web services, like Valotalive, are the perfect foundation for future development of real time and trigger based applications for data-driven communication and visualizations. 

WebSockets-driven approach in Valotalive will provide delightful services for the users for the days to come.

Content Delivery Network for Scale

What is a Content Delivery Network (CDN)?

A Content Delivery Network is a group of servers that are geographically distributed to provide fast delivery of content. A CDN allows a quick transfer of content, such as images, videos or JavaScript files.

Valotalive provides services with a consistent uptime track record. We make sure it will be like so, in the future as well, even with a constantly growing amount of displays connected to our service.
