Repeat Icons V1 - Repeat Icons in Repeat Signage

 
We have included 1,700+ icons for use with the Picture control and Flash banner control to enhance your digital signage presentations.   There were originally 4 collections.  You can specify any solid colours for the icons and background.  The icons are collections from the same designer so icons of the same name have various designs.  For example, 'Dog' is available in all 4 collections:

 

These icons will scale to full screen size without loss of quality, even on True HD screens.

 

Repeat Icons V2 - Major update in October 2015

 

We have upgraded the icons system and added two new collections of icons, giving thousands of new icons to choose from including:

 

 

This gives a total of over 4,000 icons.  There are also the following new options:

 

- Specify the colour of individual parts of some of the icons:

 

 

- Added support for icon rotation to any degree:

 

 

 

- Added support for sizing and positioning within the background:

 

 

- Added the ability to add other icons and text onto of the original icon.  This allows you to build up elaborate designs:

 

 

which can be displayed as slides/pictures with our Flash banner control and Picture control play lists of images.  This could also be used to just display some text with these picture based controls.  There is a category called 'Blank' which as a blank icon.  This doesn't display an icon and you can just add text in the same way as above.   

 

IMPORTANT NOTE - If you create presentations with the new features or new icons, you need to make sure you update your player computers to the latest version of Repeat Signage before playing them.

Need an icon not in our collections?
 

We have access to thousands of other icons, but the more we add to Repeat Signage, then larger the installation program.  If you need something specific for your presentation, then please email us at support@repeatsoftware.com and we will see if we can find what you are looking for and add it.
