What’s New

  • Locking Page in an AEM Screens Channel

    AEM Screens now supporting Locking a Page, as already implemented in AEM Sites. Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) allows you to lock a page, so that no one else can modify the contents. This is useful when you are making a lot of edits to one specific page or when you need to freeze a page for a short while.

  • Naming AEM Screens Player Device

    The AEM Screens players now include the capability of sending a device name to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM).
