Repeat Signage digital signage software

Main screen - Presentations tab

The first step to using Repeat Signage, is to create a Repeat Signage Presentation.  Use this tab to create, edit and play presentations. 

Play from (Standard and above editions) is our free service to facilitate the remote updating of presentations and play lists (and content such as pictures, text, etc) so that you can control what is displayed on remote computers anywhere in the world via the Internet.

You must set up a free account before you can access this button to play presentation files hosted at

This option allows you to update presentations and other files to

Playing presentations from a website (Standard and above editions)

This allows you to put the URL of a presentation you have hosted on a website.  For example:

We have some of our sample presentations hosted on a free account.  Have a look at the following link for presentations that are hosted on

and our Sample presentations on websites which is a list of online presentations which you can use to test this button.

Please note that on some websites, the website will need a MIME type configuring otherwise you may get a 'Cannot download your chosen file' message.

With the Standard and above editions, you can play a presentation which has been uploaded to a website.  The reason you may want to do this is so that you can get a Repeat Signage player computer at a remote location to play a hosted presentation and then you can upload a new version to the website when you have made changes, and the remote player will automatically download and play this new version.

Trial version of Repeat Signage

You may evaluation Repeat Signage for as long as you like.  The trial version displays a ghosted 'Trial version' image when playing presentations.  This message appears after playing presentations for 10 minutes.  You may use the trial version to design and edit presentations, and just purchase a licence for each machine you intend to play Repeat Signage presentations on.  You may also use the free trial version in class rooms for the purpose of teaching digital signage concepts to students.

For presentations, in the trial version, you are limited to playing them for only 10 minutes.

The new PowerPoint scheduler control will only play and schedule full screen PowerPoint presentations for the first 10 minutes.
