EPICURE DIGITAL THE CURE FOR THE MENU BORED

EPICURE DIGITAL CENTRA SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATION WITH FOOD SERVICES SYSTEMS

This Epicure Digital Centra Menu System (”System”) uses our Centra Cloud Server (”Server”) to integrate with

back-of-house menu planning and nutrition management systems including Computrition Hospitality Suite®,

CBORD Foodservice Systems®, Aurora FoodPro® and others (collectively “BOH System”) to control, maintain and schedule menus and content on Samsung Smart Signage Platform (“SSSP”) LED LCDs. Its Online Menu module includes hyperlinks for posting your daily menus on your website for viewing on computers, smart phones and tablets. You control the System via a web browser (Chrome, Firefox or Safari, not Internet Explorer) on any computer, Windows® or Mac®, that has Internet access to our Server. The BOH System may be on-premise or cloud-based. It is your responsibility to purchase the appropriate interface (“API”) from your BOH System vendor.

 

Samsung SSSP LED LCDs include Ethernet and WiFi (WPA 2 Personal security only) network connections and the Samsung Smart Signage Platform software and hardware for making each LCD its own media player. Each SSSP LCD is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core system-on-chip with 2.5GB, LPDDR4 1.5GHz 64 Bit main interface memory and 8GB FDM. It provides a powerful streamlined solution for receiving and displaying its content, reducing the need for a separate media player and reducing the total cost of ownership in digital signage deployments through savings in hardware installation and operating costs. No other hardware is required. You may use existing LCDs and media players if you can configure the media player to launch the Google Chrome browser to open in kiosk mode and to resolve to our Server upon power up; and you assume all responsibility for the maintenance and management of the media players. Whenever one of these LCDs or its media player becomes defective, we would like the pair to be replaced with a single SSSP LCD.

 

At each meal period, our Centra Server will query your Computrition XChange Gateway server or CBORD Menu

Display Interface server (collectively ”API Server”), or a FoodPro SQL menu file that is uploaded approximately every 15 minutes to our server, for your current menu data. The API Server, which is typically installed on a virtual web server in a DMZ, never on the Production Server, will then query the Production Server for the data. Note that the API Server does not allow access to any private health information. Each SSSP LCD will then connect to our Server via the LCD's Ethernet or WiFi (WPA2 Personal only) connection to receive and display HTML5 pages with the menu data from the BOH System and all other content uploaded to our Server by you using its web-based content management system. The LCDs may also require access to news and weather service RSS feeds external to your firewall.
