Introduction

 

Repeat Signage allows you to quickly produce professional quality digital signage presentations and play it on a variety of displays including LCD monitors, plasma screens and projectors. 

Traditional printed posters, that you see pinned to walls everyday, are made up of text, pictures and shapes.  Repeat Signage presentations can be thought of as digital posters.  Instead of printed text, you can have text that scrolls, or displays different text every few seconds, or even flashing on and off screen to catch the eye of passers by.  You can have same ability with pictures and shapes.  You can also add text or round clocks, play audio and video files, show webcam images, display news from Internet RSS feeds and display live Internet websites.

The Repeat Signage starting point is to create a presentation, which is effectively a digital poster.  You can then play that poster full screen to your audience. 



The picture above shows one of our sample presentations.

 

With the Standard and above editions, you can also create play lists to schedule your presentations to play at different times and dates.  The Corporate edition allows the display of information from databases in addition to the Standard features.
