    Digital Signage systems

    I know this has been asked before but it has never actually been answered very well, mainly just one word answers, so here goes...


    Has anyone seen any good windows or web based software for digital signage? It needs to be really easy to use; drag and drop or in the case of web based, something like you pop your pics and text in a folder and the webpage does the rest.

    Ive seen Infojection mentioned a load of times but their website is rather cyptic on what it actually does and how it works, do you have to pay for the main system or what?


    Any help :beer:

    BTW we already have the screens and pcs, we just need some software, as the 3M software we were mis-sold is a complete waste of space.

    If all else fails i might have to carry on with my webpage based system but im no web designer so figuring out how to make pics, video and text interchangable is abit of a challenge.

    we use a OneLAN box for our 2 screens. Pretty expensive for what it is really - a Fedora Core linux box with some bespoke software, but it does the job and the secretarys can use them with ease.

    The Navaho MediaCats are great - I have three. The software isn't sold separately though AFAIK - however, you may be surprised by how far your budget will stretch

    our school have onelan, it runs our three screen and we have many people logging in using differant names and passwords to input there own things... for example we have the kitchen doing the menu and the office staff doing messages. perfect for money and really easy to use

    onelan here as well.
    I did look into getting the software separately and the company were none too keen.
    The kit they supply is a cheap Via EPIA board and a disk, probably cost 150 tops - hence me asking.

    A suggestion I've seen on here (And which I'm intending to try is basically using Powerpoint together with (free) Showpoint (PresentationPoint | ShowPoint control remotely) and LiveWeb (LiveWeb - insert and update web pages real-time in PowerPoint)

    Onelan

    Hi I work for Onelan/Red Solutions if you like we can come in to your school and give you a quick demonstration. If you like the system we can then point you towards a reseller who can provide the system.
