    We are looking at OneLan boxes with a demo one due any time soon (this week hopefully).

    Can anyone provide me with some prices? PM?

    Many thanks

    Not that I would suggest you buy from them but it'll give you a idea - OneLan NTB510-SA (Stand Alone) + Essentials Pack

    Aaahh - I didn't realise RM sold them. I see several configuration there - do I go for the top one?

    Correct me if I'm wrong - but I need a Publisher box (I assume the TV card is a good option to show BBC News and Sky) and then a Subscriber box for use in our lobby.

    Seems simple enough.

    So long as you don't mention to anyone I linked to RM its ok

    Yep you will need a publisher to get the main content out - TV card works a treat as you said. If you want to send TV to the subscribers you will need the streaming add on though.
    The top box would be fine - the other model in the publisher series is just a bit faster by way of its processor.

    Although we don't have OneLAN at my current place at my last school I was involved in the install and its great - free lifetime software upgrades as well (justifys the high initial cost IMO).

    Just to clarify this - its only free lifetime software upgrades as long as they continue supporting that box... They stopped supporting the boxes we have at my middle school, and therefore there hasn't been a software update for it for a long while now.

    Don't quote me on this but we have onelan boxes all over the place and I'm fairly sure that you can use one box by itself as a standalone (as long as you can access it through the web console).

    You can indeed - but if you use the cheaper subscriber units they have to be hooked up to a publisher (more expensive) to work.

    It seems to me that once you have a box and the software then unless something major happens it will do what you want forever - regardless of whether they support it. Once it's yours can you then open it and see what hardware is inside?

    We had one delivered today and whilst I am aware that we could probably do most of it with other cheaper solutions (free in some cases) this did everything that we needed. It has a TV card and it was a doddle to setup and use. Within 20 mins we had our own template in place with areas updating. Very happy.

    Now to find the cheapest price - because it ain't cheap.

    Getting prices is almost impossible, most of the suppliers push for the whole install and setup package. I ended up going with <cough>RM<cough> as they were the easiest to deal with, no pushy salesmen trying to add their "fully managed package".

    I do believe that my local AV firm are a OneLan reseller, don't know what the pricing is like however as I have my own DIY signage (although am going to look at Navaho when I get time to breath!). Maybe drop him an email and see if he still is a onelan reseller - Audioworks - Audio and Audio Visual - PA Systems - Induction Loop Systems - Installation - Lancaster Martin is the man
