    This is a great thread as I am currently looking at digital signage. I am currently using PADS by Anders and Kern which is good, but is an old version. The new version is brilliant but not sure I can afford it now.

    I would avoid commercial screens purely because of the cost. My first screen cost less than £400 and is a basic Toshiba 32" bought about 4 years ago and is on 24/7 and I keep forgetting to switch it off during holidays. Commercial screens are a lot more money so I would just replace it if it goes wrong with another cheap one. The only reason I would consider a commercial screen would be for outdoor use.

    We only have consumer TVs fitted at the moment and these are fine for our needs.

    Have a look at this: Enterprise Digital Signage Software that?s FREE | Rise Vision - I've been using it here for a couple of months and it's good and free (replaced Xibo).

    @fiza definitely a good find. Must admit to not looking at the link but is a good price and worth considering. Also not really sure what makes it so different to a consumer TV.

    @bclarke - The education price is actually lower than that quoted on the link

    I had this discussion on a previous thread about Commercial TVs and decided at that price it was worth going for

    Thanks to BSF we were able to afford a planet estream system in our school for all media storage and it now comes with digital signage built in for free.
    Its great and their support is brilliant Its not cheap for their system but when you take into account for what it does its not bad for the price.

    We ran Xibo on a tv with a Revo3610 and it was pretty much rock solid, you can do all your schedules and special events without any problems but come September we get Planet estream under BSF too, cant wait.

    We also use estream, having suffered with onelan for a number of years, it's a pleasure to find something that works well and is easy to use. Try a demo.

    2p Worth .. XIBO FTW.. just updated to 1.4.x here and it's great, even more straight forward that it was previously, you can have many schedules displays around site, schedule in special days, just through up a PowerPoint that someone has prepped for you (you do need PowerPoint installed on the machine to do this), add videos, images, webpages, text, RSS Feeds, Twitter Feeds, etc, etc, etc.. And .. it's free ..

    Plus, I love the feature with the latest client where you can (without the need for reverse engineering or compiling from code) add your own splash screen on there.

    @net man we have been looking at rise Vision for a month or so now. Any idea how to remove the eye that appears in the top left of the screen as it covers a large area of the screen when it re appears every so often

    Using onelan here too, we have 1 main publisher and then a subscriber to all our single LCD's and then a separate subscriber to our TV wall, and I created 2 channels so we can screen different content to each subscriber and then different content to the TV wall.

    It is the first and only digital signage we've used here and I have design a really nice pro looking theme and got all the areas looking fantastic, it was a paint to get used to then I just jumped in, had a play and think it's fantastic. Given some training on this and the response is good. If your near Blackpool your more then welcome to come have a look at them and the software.
