    Digital Signage Install

    A couple of pics of one of our digital signage screens we just had installed.

    The Sony commercial displays, Acer N260G's and mounting brackets were supplied by CP Ltd, thanks Simon.

    The displays were put up by Advantage Technologies who do all of my AV work.

    At the moment I'm just looping a powerpoint with a share on the nettop to edit it but they will be getting xiboed soon.

    If we had been in charge or even consulted about our digital signage in the dining hall or in the foyer, we would save on a couple members of staff and we would have saved a couple of grand. But unfortunately we weren't asked. We even have ImageFlyer software that is easy peasy to use and do xyz with, which is totally unnecessary...why not powerpoint?

    Thousands of pounds get wasted in our school and our time gets wasted trying to fix other peoples mistakes. I know there are other techies around that have the same issue here.
