08 January 2016 - Repeat Signage V4 released
 

Repeat Signage V4 has arrived.   The biggest change is that we now support Microsoft PowerPoint files (pptx and ppt) within all the picture based controls.  The way this works is that PowerPoint slides are automatically converted to pictures and displayed.  See Using Microsoft PowerPoint presentations in Repeat Signage for a walk through.   With the addition in Page Range option November 2015:

 

 

this means you can chose exactly which slides from a PowerPoint you would like to display.  The Flash banner control and Picture control both support play lists so you can display all or some of the slides from PowerPoint files.

We have added two new major options to our Flash banner control.   The options are:

PAGE FLIPPER 01 - This allows you to select PDF files (or Pictures, Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and displays them like a book with turning  pages

 



ROTATOR 01 - This allows pictures to be scrolled across the screen like they were on a conveyor belt.  There are numerous sizing and display options and you can mix portrait and landscape oriented pictures:

 

 

Again, since this control now supports PowerPoint files, you could display all the slides in a file automatically this way as well.


Our touch screen presentation system has had a major update so that you can use our Flash banner control

 

 

 

- Flash Banner pictures can now be individually rotated or colour effects applied.

- The Standalone Edition now has the RTF control, all Flash Clock and Flash RSS designs.   This makes our entry point signage even better value.

- We will be continuing to develop the touch screen system through out 2016 in Repeat Signage V4.

- We have made dozens of under the hood changes in both the designer and player.  This has reduced the load time of both the player and the designer by around 25%.

 

- We have improved the way Repeat Signage designer works with documents including PDF files, Word documents and Excel files, so that the designer is more responsive.


There is a paid upgrade from Repeat Signage 2010-2015 versions to Repeat Signage V4.  Please visit the Buy page for pricing.


22 November 2015 - Repeat Signage 2015 V3.4.31

The big new feature of Repeat Signage 2015 is database support in our new Corporate Edition and our Media Wall edition.   Most Repeat Signage controls (where applicable) can now collect and display information from database.  There is a new Data grid control.

The Animated gif control now supports SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files.

The Flash RSS control allows the display of text from databases (in the Corporate and Media Wall editions).  There is also a manual option so that you can scroll text/news that you type in rather than using an RSS feed.

Zoom Zoom feature added so that you can set a zoom percentage if required.  This is on the Page tab of the properties screen.  100% is the normal size.  50% zooms to make page half the size and 200% makes the page twice as big.  You can use any value between 20% and 500%.
Part of page You can just display part of a website page.  See the displaying just part of a website page help page.
Widget wizard New 'Widget wizard' button which will help you display your widget/HTML easier by embedding it into a complete website page.  This allows the top left position to the set and the optional setting a background colour rather than the default white one.  You can preview the HTML/widget and set zoom options to increase or decrease the displayed size of the widget.
Login URL's You can now use login URLs to which allow you to login to certain sites and then display a protected page.

The Picture control, Text label control, Text block control all now support collection of information from databases.

Existing customers and upgrading to Repeat Signage 2015

There are several new features, as listed above.  Just make sure you upgrade all of your computers to Repeat Signage 2015.  For example, if you change your designer PC to Repeat Signage 2015 and use features like Repeat Icons , then these features will not play on previous versions of Repeat Signage.

May 2013 - Repeat Signage V2.4.7 released

 

Repeat Signage is used in doctor and dental surgeries to display information to patients.  It can also act as a front end to patient call / visitor call systems.  The way this works is that Repeat Signage can display either a plain text or rich text (RTF) file with the details of the next patient.  This is shown on screen.  When the file containing the patient information is either updated manually, or by patient/visitor call software, then Repeat Signage will display the new details immediately.  We also have the facility to also play a sound fine when this happens, such as a beep, to alert patients/visitors to look at the digital signage screen.  We now have added text-to-speech support which allows Repeat Signage to 'read' the text file information aloud.  See our help file page for step-by--step information on how to set this up:  http://www.repeatsoftware.com/help/TextToSpeech.htm
