11Giraffes puts the power of cost efficiency, remote management, and scalable deployment in the hands of end-users and IT managers through their new digital signage software application for Google’s Chrome OS.
Charlotte, July 29, 2015: Digital signage software company, 11Giraffes, now supports Google’s Chrome operating system with its digital content management platform. The company worked closely with Google to build an application for use with the Google for Work platform. A Google Android version of 11Giraffes digital signage media player has been available since 2012. A variant of this Android version of 11Giraffes Digital Signage player now runs on Chrome OS.
Using the 11Giraffes Digital Signage Chrome app, users may remotely manage the presentation of video and audio through the 11Girafffes web-based content management system. The 11Giraffes Digital Signage app allows users to upload and schedule media, create touchscreen interactive applications and video walls, monitor playback, and traffic content to individual or groups of displays worldwide.
As a Google for Work Partner application, the 11Giraffes Digital Signage app may be deployed and managed on Google Chromebox devices using Google’s Chrome Management Console. The web-based Chrome Management Console allows IT departments to easily configure and manage Chrome OS devices across enterprise networks in corporate, education and non-profit environments.
“Based on our success with Google Android digital signage, adding support for Google Chrome made good business sense”, said Jim Marascio, 11Giraffes Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Operations. “Chrome OS devices provide a powerful, yet low-cost, PC hardware platform for digital signage. And Google’s ARC project made migrating from Android to Chrome, then maintaining a single code base for both platforms, very efficient.”
11Giraffes Digital Signage media player app is immediately available with Chromebox devices sold through Seneca. The 11Giraffes Digital Signage app is also available through the Google Chrome Web Store to be deployed via Chrome Management Console. The app may also be run without Chrome Management Console and on Chrome OS devices sourced through other distribution channels.

The company’s software and hardware products are distributed through a large network of value added resellers who place its products in a wide range of industries including retail, hospitality, QSR/restaurant, automotive, financial, medical and dental offices, country clubs, and convenience stores. 11Giraffes is committed to creating products that extend brands, deliver messages, and speak to customers. www.11giraffes.com
