  • For me these API needs seem normal cinema functions and Tapos should be able to handle these. But is there something that you want to comment or would like to have more information about?
  • For display you have full API option, and also a simple xml feed that includes performance data etc which is probably quicker to implement.  And there is also the native digital signage.
