External swf VS Flash SDK VS Flex Module???
« on: February 13, 2011, 08:56:23 PM »
Hi there,

These days we are looking for a signage solution that can apply rich interactivity and meanwhile can provide a cms that enables end user to manage content easily. It seems to me that MediaSignage is a good choice after I access your company's website. 

So far I watched all the signage tutorial videos. And I saw that there were two main approach to get our target. One is to use External SWF in component or upload regular SWF and let them to access external media files by URL. The other one is to use Flash SDK or Flex Module.

In the tutorial videos, I saw some samples(such as directory and flying images) that with attractive animation and user can change the content with pretty little effort but without interactivity. And a menu sample for kiosk but without panel for changing the image.

Is it possible that to combine the features of the two samples? I am eager to know.  Thanks.

Developed in Flex SDK 3.5 (builder version makes no difference)

How about my 1st question--to add much interactivity and make it easy to change the content for end user just like directory sample, which method do you recommend?  Flash SDK?

I asked for some times about that, and hope you can give a clear answer. Thanks so much.
