Repeat Signage Standalone Edition

This edition is designed to be used in reception areas, on exhibition stands and in individual shop windows.  You can design a presentation and then just play it on screen, or when Windows starts.  Changing presentation content is done manually.  The only control that allows remote updating is the Flash RSS feed control.  You can use a free www.repeatserver.com account to create RSS news feeds to display and update in the Standalone edition.  You can also use our free RSS Feed Manager which is on main Repeat Signage menu.

Some of the Standard Edition controls are not available.  Play lists and scheduling of individual controls is not available.

This edition supports single monitor systems.


Repeat Signage 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 from either a network drive or website, 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.

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.

You can create play lists to schedule presentations at the required times.

You can now use the Standard Edition with RepeatServer.com 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.

This edition supports single monitor systems.


Repeat Signage Corporate Edition

This has all the the features of the Standard edition plus database support and new database driven controls.  See Displaying database information in Repeat Signage.  It also allows the mailmerge of databases with customised templates with our Flash Banner control, which is available for both non-touch screen and touch screen use.


Repeat Signage Media Wall edition (formally the Professional edition)

This includes all the features of the Corporate Edition but supports up to 4 monitors.  This is designed to create media walls by allowing you to spread presentations across multiple screens.  We have internally tested this with 4 screens systems, but some of our clients display presentations across 6 monitors.


Windows XP users

Repeat Signage V4 continues to run on Windows XP SP3.  However, some of the new features, such as Repeat Icons and the display of SVG files are not available.  See our Windows XP support page.

Other industry specify versions of Repeat Signage

There is currently only one of these:

Repeat Signage V4 for UK Estate Agents - We worked closely with a UK estate agent IT reseller to customise Repeat Signage to play RightMove property feed files.  RightMove is the main property sales website in the UK.  This version has all the features of the Standard edition with an extra RightMove feed player control.

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.   We would be happy to set this up for any US realtors if you provide us with details of which US property websites you need to play feed files from.


Upgrading between editions

You can upgrade from one edition to another.  The price is set so that it doesn't work out any dearer to upgrade your version later.  For example to purchase the Standard edition, plus an update to the Corporate edition, this works out exactly the same price as if you had purchased the Corporate edition in the first place.  This allows you to purchase what you need now and upgrade later if your requirements change.
