Trying to figure out if and how it might be possible to integrate our room booking software with Rise Vision.

We are currently in the process of switching to Ungerboeck Software (https://ungerboeck.com/) to manage room bookings and events for our facility.  They offer a Digital Signage module through which "information is delivered via a RESTful API returning a JSON object via the Internet connected API."  They say it works with most major digital signage systems, but have not worked with Rise Vision before.

I am out of my depth here, any thoughts, suggestions or experiences?  Might this work and if so, how?

Thanks!

Wilson Center, are you with the Wilson Center in WI? If so, hello from a fellow PAC here in Charlotte, NC (Blumenthal Performing Arts). Best of luck on your Ungerboeck deployment. It's quite a beast but its capabilities are almost limitless! 

You'll probably have the best luck having RV deploy something using USI's pre-built module. If you've got someone who wants to dig into it a bit more though I have an alternate solution. Ungerboeck is backed by a SQL database. We have a SQL query job on the database that publishes an XML feed of Function data we want to show on our digital signage. We then use a Google Spreadsheet to parse the XML. At that point, we can bring the data into an RV presentation rather easily using the Google Spreadsheet Widget. 

Here's an example of the finished product: http://preview.risevision.com/?type=presentation&id=2e2cd027-dfa8-4cca-b9da-8eb16151243f

Another option could be a website built using Wordpress or Joomla if Ungerboeck Software can be integrated using these CMS platforms. Then you can simply pull it to your RV display with the Website Widget.

Robert, Darius -  Huge apologies for the delay, I didn't see your responses until just now.

Yes, thank you, thank you for the excellent ideas.

Robert - We are actually a think tank based out of Washington, DC.  Great to meet another Ungerboeck user.
