Common Alert Protocol (CAP) - A frequently supported feature by many digital signage solutions allowing an alert message to be quickly pushed to digital signs, ‘overriding’ the existing layout content.
It is common to run into requests for this relatively frequently, especially from Universities, Health Care, or Government organizations requiring the solution to be tied into some sort of unified alerting system, (but increasingly from private companies as well). The lack of this functionality tends to make Xibo less attractive to customers looking for this built-in functionality in their RFPs, and digital signs are the obvious destination where alerting systems would want to push these emergency messages. CAP seems like the most universally established standard for this functionality.
