    Re: Digital Signage Systems

    Hi, I'm the author of PlasmaNet which is a browser / web based digital signage system. You've got the options of either using our server (low cost) or installing on your own server. We've also got a diskless linux player (PlasmaNetix / free / open source) which will link into it. Let me know if you are interested in trying this out, I'm happy to work with you in getting your system up and running. News feeds, RSS, powerpoint, video and custom templates / html are supported. Live TV / video is also possible.
    regards
    mark

    Mark

    It would be interesting to know how you compare to another company I have had a demonstration today from a company called tripleplay TV. Triple Play Website

    It's healthy to rope in some competition I think.

    Re: Digital Signage Systems

    Do you guys know that there is a totally free digital signage software available that you can simply download off the internet?
    It's fully functional and yes ... F-R-E-E.
    It's PC based (not Linux). You're given full instructions regarding set-up & use.
    It can be used over a LAN or using your existing Internet connection.
    It supports: .swf .mov .jpg&bmp .avi.

    You'll need to Google search or Yahoo search

    I don't mean to be dramatic but I'll get whipped by the moderator if I give the website name.
    I've already been lambasted on a previous occasion.

    Does anything, Plays anything built in everything just run a Cat 5 up to it (if I find it can't use the wireless for all I need) managed across the LAN with VNC.

    Sorted...

    m25man - not quite. Wait till you need to update it, what are you going to use to do that? What software are you going to use? I suppose you could use Quartz composer to build yourself an RSS driven screensaver or something but you will come across the same problems as everyone else...

    So that members are aware, Michael has been asked not to advertise his product directly as although part of it is free there is a commercial interest to other parts.

    People who are interested are free to click on his profile or the links to his website (the 'www' button at the bottom of each of his posts) but in the interest of fair play to others who have paid to advertise he has been asked not to give direct links.

    Whilst this may be frustrating to Michael and a few members it means that we can continue to bring EduGeek to you all free of charge and pretty much software / hardware agnostic.

    We apologise for this break in your regular viewing and normal service will be resumed shortly.

    How about ... Apple TV.

    I am looking at how I can have a range of messages saved as an rss feed ... and the feed is on a playlist ... set to shuffle ... and it updates whenever I make a change.

    I had a play on Thursday and it seems to work ... now I just have to wait until the budget is finalised and I can get one for the school to really try it out.

    Sorry to bring the topic up again, but if anybody has got any working examples that they would like to share of their Powerpoints or screenshots, it would be nice to see them ....

    Thanks

    Re: Digital Signage Systems

    Me too.

    We are looking into doing a DS setup this summer and would like other examples etc.

    Someone is coming in to school in a few weeks to demo the one they use (using net-top-box).

    If anyone has the NTB setup, what sort of costs am I looking at?

    Ta muchly
