Repeat Signage Standard Edition

 

Repeat Signage V4

   

Introduction

 

There are many digital signage software products on the market but we found that most required the use of restrictive templates.  These templates were either non-widescreen or widescreen and then stretched videos and pictures depending on the screen they were being displayed on.  Repeat Signage is different.  You design the presentation for the resolution of your screen.  For example, you may want to display information in a reception area on a plasma screen which has 1365x768 pixels.  Repeat Signage allows you to design on this screen in full screen mode allowing you to place pictures, videos, PDF files, website pages, etc, exactly where you want them, pixel for pixel.  Having said that, Repeat Signage will automatically scale presentations to your screens as well.

 

Standard Edition


This edition is designed to be used in organisations such as schools, retails outlets and businesses, where you would like to be able to update playing content from either your local network or the Internet.  When Repeat Signage Standard plays a presentation (or a play list of presentations), from either a network drive or website, and it will monitor that presentation and load a new version automatically when it detects that it has been changed.  You can create a free www.repeatserver.com account to help you update files over the Internet, which has now been fully integrated into Repeat Signage.
 
Within a presentation, you can schedule each control separately on either an hourly, daily or weekly basis, which allows you to display different content at different times from your presentation.

 

This version includes a scheduler for controlling when presentations are played and is designed for larger organisations that need to update schedules and presentations remotely. Presentations, play lists and content files (such as pictures, videos, etc) can be downloaded from either a free www.repeatserver.com account or an organisation's website.

For example, a large retail change of confectioners may have shops all over the country, or even internationally.  At head office, new play lists and presentations may be created daily with daily (or timed) special offers on.  These are uploaded to the company's website (in a hidden folder).  Each player computer attached to a plasma screen (or LCD monitor or projector) reads it's play list from this website and then downloads play lists, presentations and content files (such as pictures, videos, etc) and plays them. As long as the player computers in the individual shops are connected to the Internet, then this process happens automatically.  All the managers in the shops have to do is to turn on the player computer.

You can schedule presentations on either a continuous, looping, hourly, daily, weekly, or on a dates basis.
 
The Standard edition can be used with a free RepeatServer.com account to facilitate the remote updating of presentations, play lists and content files. RepeatServer.com is a free service to customers and evaluators of Repeat Signage which allows the creation of RSS feeds and well as allowing the hosting of Repeat Signage presentations and files centrally.  Please visit RepeatServer.com for more information.

There is also access to the Webcam and PowerPoint presentation scheduler, Text block, Video and Webcam controls.  There are 10 Flash clock designs and 2 Flash RSS designs.

Touch screen presentation support is also included

 

Repeat Signage Standard opens and plays .rsl (for the Standalone edition), .rst (Repeat Signage Touchscreen) and .rsp (Repeat Signage Presentation) files.

Trial version

The updating of content files (videos, pictures, etc) is also difficult in other digital signage applications. Repeat Signage allows you to collect content from Internet websites and network drives. This means that if you have offices in London and want to change the content being displayed on screen in Edinburgh, New York and Paris, you can upload new presentations, files and play lists to a website and the remote players (when connected to the Internet) can download and display the new information. 

 

Repeat Signage allows the use of up to 4 monitors on one computer.  Many new graphics cards in computers have connections for two monitors.  Repeat Signage allows you to display information across multiple screens, or play different presentations on each screen.    support@repeatsoftware.com if you would be interested in helping us with this in exchange for some free licences of the finished product.

Customising Repeat Signage to your requirements

Repeat Software is happy to customise our software to fit customer requirements (within reason) and to work with resellers to bring Repeat Signage to new markets.  Please contact us and we are happy to discuss mutually beneficial projects and partnerships. For example, we are currently working with a reseller in Sweden to allow Repeat Signage to display a datagrid showing events on screen which will be collected from an XML endpoint.
