TOPIC: WHEN WILL ADENGIN WORK AGAIN ?!
« on: March 12, 2014, 04:01:24 PM »
We have purchased two servers and multiple players/ licences with the hope of eventually utilisting the Ad Engine / MediaAdNet functions you advertise on your site. After speaking with support to try and find further documentation on setup i am told this function is not available and had been turned off about a year ago!!!!

1) why are you still advertising what is a key part to your software on your site if it is not available
2) why wasnt i informed that this service wasnt available!

i feel cheated and if i would have known i would have purchased a solution from another Digital Signage company... Angry and disappointed is an understatement!

Others be aware

Yes, there have been many, many MANY people complaining about this, to no avail.... I don't blame you for being upset.

Hi. This is a very interesting post. Is there anything else I should know before I become a reseller? I'm not a big one for "surprises"? Choice of white-label supplier is a big decision for us, and we cant afford a mistake. Any further info much appreciated ...

The basic Ad engine works on the enterprise white label version

Hello Anoop

Could you be more specific ?
I use the Enterprise white label version (cloud), but there is no way to have Ad Engin work as it used to work before V4...

This is a great loss, and it goes against all the arguments of MS about "we Enterprise users should grow a business not on pure reselling of MS software, but more on value added services".
Selling ads is THE value added service we, Enterprise users, could actually build our business models on.

With Studio V4, it just disapeared, and we become, de facto, pure resellers, in direct competition with MS !

MS has been lying to us (sorry but I can't find any other word to describe this situation) since about 18 months, making us believe Adengin will be back soon.

So I am asking the question again : when will Adengin work again ?! (I will make a specific post for that issue)

Best Regards

First let me say that MediaSignage is a genuine, honest company. Our goal is always to offer free service so everyone can enjoy.
We propagate our business practices to all employees and believe in free open source and transparent approach in our business practices.

With respect to mediaADNET, we kept it on our site as the product has been released, however we retracted it from the product (and web site) as we did not get enough traction from the feature and decided to refactor it as per user suggestions and feedbacks.

Our current road map includes in that order of:
- Current: Account migration, major enhancements to copy / paste and inter account data sharing, better and more shared resources, shared scenes and more... (releasing in 1-2 weeks)
- 2015 – High end GPU powered Kiosk system with many new enhancements
- 2015 – refactored mediaADNET

I wish I could be more specific with dates, but history teaches us it's best to wait until we are sure on release dates.

Let me add that while we took out the Ad engine, we kept portions of it, notably the Proof of play.
Also, we did include a brand new API for POP as well as the entire pepper SDK so customers can develop their own custom ad management tools and services.

I hope this helps with better transparency on past and current efforts,

Regards,

Sean.

Doohit;
I meant the Proof of play as the ad engine that is remaining.

Sean:
Would await to see how the kiosk system will work. I am creating one using the present set up using events which is  very complicated as the nested scenes are not working properly.

Thank you for your answer Sean,

I would like to understand a bit more about your pepper SDK stuff : do you think it would be possible to have a conf call about it ? Or simply email Questions/Answers ? Other than through Forum.

Thanks
Eric
