Product updates and improvements are important to us at Newline Interactive. We listen to and understand the needs of our customers. With our unique business model, we can gather feedback and act on product updates faster than our competition. Recently, we rolled out some new updates to the NT Series. Users can now enjoy easier navigation and a more customized home screen experience. Read on for an overview of the highlights and most exciting advancements.
Home Screen & Menu Updates
The homepage menu has been updated to meet the requests from our customers! Users can now turn off the auto menu pop-up on the home screen (found in Home settings). This comes as an addition to the source autodetection setting which allows a complete bypass of the home screen to the OPS computer or connected device. And another highly requested feature, home screen wallpapers can finally be customized!
Sleep mode settings received a nice upgrade as well. There is now an Auto-Schedule On and Off option in the display settings. Sleep mode can be customized to simply put the display in hibernation mode or a complete power down. This is a great feature for organizations wanting to regulate power consumption, but still take advantage of the 24/7 rated commercial display.
We understand that the previous NT Series remote was a bit hard to navigate some of the essential functions on your NT Series, so we’ve created an upgrade! The new, sleek remote has two pieces and is double-sided with a keyboard. The second piece is the RF tech-supported Wifi dongle that connects the remote keyboard to your NT display.
When unpacking the NT accessories for the first time, the Wifi dongle will be nestled under the battery slot on the right side of the remote keyboard side.
You’ll love the new integrated air mouse on the remote that works via the Wifi dongle on the Android and Windows settings and apps. That includes pre-installed apps such as Newline Cast and Broadcast and all your favorite PC apps on the OPS computer or connected laptop. New remotes have mouse mode, right-click, and left-click buttons. Just like a Bluetooth-connected keyboard and mouse, your included NT Series remote will help you seamlessly navigate the display.
Pro Tip: Plug the remote Wifi dongle into the USB port on the bottom right of your NT display for uninterrupted use and connectivity. This will leave all your left-side ports available for other connections.
Each NT Series display comes with a fully modular Wifi adapter. For flexible installation options, it does not come pre-installed. The included Wifi module has three antennas, providing a strong connection for all your NT displays.
