Once set up, you can now trigger messages from InformaCast to designated Manager devices.

Manager Advanced web page broadcasting enhancement

Last month we released the new Broadcast Web Page feature, and this month we’ve made broadcasting YouTube video pages even easier! Instead of needing to manually edit a YouTube URL for it to broadcast in full screen and auto-play, now you can simply copy and paste a URL (such as this one) into the web page URL field.

As a result, your chosen YouTube video will display in full screen and auto-play!
