Why LAVA Controls?

We created LAVA Controls to solve one fundamental problem in the signage industry which was the lack of true monitoring of every piece of hardware to ensure reliable and consistent delivery of content no matter the source, application, or destination.

Content delivery is nothing new but how do you know it was delivered and how do you know that it's still playing days later? We wanted to solve that core issue without someone standing in front of the screen with FaceTime or WhatsApp to see beyond a simple screenshot and we did with LAVA Controls and LiveView.

The other half of that is the concept of an intelligent media player. One that heals itself when a blank screen comes up or when content stops playing. The players will keep content running and fresh with our advanced algorithms. The system isn't going to alert you unless something is really wrong.

Global reach to your entire signage infrastructure. Call the engineers when something is really wrong, not just a screen turned off, content not playing correctly, or a player needs to be rebooted.
