Hi Doug,

We're just dipping our (webbed) toes into digital signage and we have been looking at EVsign (using Mac Minis!) However, I'm am interested in learning more Billboard if you would send me some contact info.

Thanks!

Dennis

They call it Billboard, and it's basically open source (if you ask). I know the folks who developed it and can put anyone in touch with those people if there's interest. Dennis--just curious since I know you're a big Mac guy, are you using MacMinis for signage at Oregon?

We use them to display a webpage for digital signage.  It is nice to be able to schedule power on/off as well.  The best part of this is the simplicity of installation.  Just power and data to the location and you have digital signage.
