How To Use HTML Capture – Noventri Suite™ Digital Signage Player Software

September 11, 2019 0 By Kailee Schamberger


In this walk through, we will look at the HTML capture feature of Noventri
Suite. This allows you to take a snap shot of a web page and have that
information appear on your digital signage. As an example of how this would
work, we will use a project for Parcel United. They use their digital signage
for internal communications so they display things such as safety
announcements, production line information, and the HR department uses it to
display employee of the month information, as well as a calendar of upcoming
company events. Now if we go to the company website, we can see that the
calendar has already been created on the web page. So we are going to pull
our calendar information from this page. In Noventri Suite we need to create
a new image region. We will make that roughly the size and location of where
we want the calendar to appear. In the properties panel, we will click on the
HTML check box. You will notice in our image region, a warning box appears.
This is just a reminder to make sure that you have legal permission to use
the content that you are going to display. So back in the properties panel we
can enter in the address of our web page and then click refresh now. You will
notice that it shows the entire web page. We do not need all of that
information so we are going to crop this down to just show the calendar. So click on the
crop radial button, and then the crop tab. You will notice
we have a preview here of our web page and we can just click and drag on the
borders to be able to crop that down. We can also use the image region
bounding box on our project page to be able to make some other adjustments.
So now that we have used the HTML capture feature, any time changes that are
made to that calendar on the company web site, those changes will show
automatically on the digital signage. To learn more, please visit us online
