About

Similar to the Live Screen app, StoryStream’s Live Mosaic tailors published content for screen displays, presenting moderated user-generated and relevant brand media for your digital signage. The result is increased audience engagement, awareness and resultant social interaction.

Visualised in a mosaic format, content moves into the individual tiles, displaying the imagery, text and author, giving your consumers a more authentic and visual brand experience.

Flexibility with the timings, amount of rows, multiple colours, and the option to have a background colour ensures the display fits perfectly with your brand, and the screen’s surroundings. While the Live Screen allows for custom images/text to be uploaded into each corner of the display, the Live Mosaic puts emphasis on your content.

Because the Live Mosaic is web-hosted, it can be broadcasted to screens anywhere there’s an internet connection.

The Live Mosaic delivers published content to retail, office or ad spaces, creating a more vibrant customer experience and boosting interaction with your brand at every touch point.

Using StoryStream’s intuitive curation suite, content is approved and published to the Live Mosaic in real-time, with no technical experience necessary. With the shortlist and schedule features, collaborative storytelling is quick, efficient and ensures your content is always fresh and relevant.

Implementation

To display StoryStream on your screen, you’ll also need a driver with a compatible web browser, and a reliable internet connection. While the Live Mosaic is flexible enough to work at most landscape screen sizes, we recommend a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9.

To get your Live Mosaic displaying correctly, all you’ll need to do is paste the link that’s generated in the App Store, or sent from your Account Manager into one of the compatible web browsers, and make sure it’s viewed in full screen mode (listed below).

The link will look something like this, example.ls.storystream.it/app/live-mosaic.

Suitable drivers:

Mac: MacMini, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. Minimum spec 8GB RAM.

PC: Minimum spec Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, integrated Intel G45/G43 Graphics, 64Mb dedicated video or shared 1.2GB.

Compatible web browsers (Full screen instructions):

  • Chrome 34+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Ctrl + F, Windows: F11)
  • Firefox 31+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Shift + F, Windows: F11)
  • Opera 26+ (Mac: Cmd ⌘ + Shift + F, Windows: F11),
  • Internet Explorer 10+ (Windows: F11).

Ideal internet connection:

In order to bring new published content into the Live Mosaic, it requires a stable, ideally wired internet connection, with speeds of at least 4MB per second.

If connection to the internet drops, the screen will stay live and content will continue to display, but won’t be able to receive any more published content since the connection stopped, or play videos from YouTube, Vimeo or Vine.
