Vivi supports Active Directory (LDAP and SAML), allowing you to connect directly to your pre-existing user database. Users can sign in with their existing credentials and will inherit appropriate roles depending on the groups they are assigned to in your organization’s Active Directory.
This simplifies ongoing user management because you do not need to maintain a separate user management system for Vivi. If you aren’t using Active Directory, you can assign roles and manage users directly in Vivi Central.
It’s easy with Vivi to allow temporary presenters to use the Vivi system at your school. Guest Codes can be created from the App by a teacher and from Vivi Central by an Admin. Codes created in the App are tied to the room that the teacher is in when the Guest Code is generated and can be allocated for between 1-24 hours. Guest Codes created in Vivi Central are valid until any set time and are valid for all rooms in the organization.
In Vivi Central, you can build unlimited number of location hierarchies for your Vivi-enabled rooms. You can choose how you want to name, order and group the rooms, allowing flexibility for campuses, buildings, grade levels, etc. Next, you can set-up room names based on whatever naming convention you prefer. Then assign those rooms to a specific location.
You can set up default access modes for each of your rooms. For instance, if you have Vivis in a shared area like a library, open access controls might be enabled, compared to a classroom, where the teacher is in control of the display access. Rooms are also used to set-up functionality like multi-screen sharing.
From the room view, admins can see a history of user interactions and device events, useful for diagnosing issues and occasionally identifying misuse.
It’s important you know a Vivi Box has gone offline before your teachers walk into the classroom. Our Box sends a heartbeat every 60-seconds into Vivi Central. Green means it’s good to go, red means it needs attention. Email notifications can be enabled for a health check report to be sent every morning.
Each Vivi Box has a unique identification number, which allows you to assign the Box to specific locations and rooms.
You can centrally change settings on the Boxes, such as updating admin passwords, changing proxy settings or restarting devices remotely.
You can centrally update the firmware for your devices, meaning you don’t need to physically go to each Box or room to update individually.
Splash screens allow you to create a custom image that will be displayed on all Vivi-enabled screens when they aren’t being used for screen mirroring. It’s a great way to show your school logo, communicate how to connect to Vivi or even school-wide news. Splash screens can be customized per location.
Our Metrics dashboard measures how often teachers and students are presenting to the screen, who are the most active users among both groups, how often individual Vivi features are being used and which classrooms can boast the most Vivi activity.
Vivi’s emergency broadcast feature enables a teacher to instantly activate a customer emergency message to every Vivi-enabled screen and device. In Vivi Central, you can created unlimited emergency types, and set custom Emergency Alert images that will be displayed when a teacher triggers the Emergency Broadcast feature. You can also assign “emergency wardens” who will receive an email alert.
Our Digital Signage feature uses your existing Vivi-network so that any Vivi-enabled screen can form a cost-effective digital signage network – no additional technology or software required. You can upload static images, videos, audio or display a live website to create a collection of media to be used to form a playlist. Signage groups can be created for a targeted broadcast by grouping your Vivi-enabled rooms. You can opt for a playlist to be broadcast to a signage group once or repeated every day or every week, at any particular time.
