Displaying the latest, up-to-date information is critical when it comes to schedules, timetables, room allocation plans or course plans for schools, high schools, universities, educational institutions or general information for company employees – the possibilities of a digital billboard or notice board are infinite! A screen catches much more attention than traditional, paper-based bulletin boards, it looks more professional and it can easily be updated remotely!
But the most critical factor for a successful digital billboard is powerful but easy-to-use software which reliably controls your screen(s). With "FrontFace for Public Displays" you can even display entire HTML-based Web pages. The software also allows you to split the screen according to your requirements and the unique Print2Screen feature allows you to create content for the billboard with any Windows application that is able to print – this includes vertical applications such as timetable and room allocation management programs! By using Print2Screen you do not have to implement complex and unreliable interface bridges between different applications – instead simply print what you want to see on the billboard. But of course you can also integrate any existing PDF documents (also multi-page documents) into your playlists with a single click!
The perfect software to turn any PC with a flat screen into a digital billboard or information screen:
Display Media of any Format!
FrontFace for Public Displays can display any kind of media format, no matter whether you want to display text, pictures, photos, PDFs, videos, news tickers, live TV, Flash or Silverlight or even entire Web pages (HTML). A free weather widget for displaying the current weather conditions plus a 3-day forecast is also included. But really the best feature is that you can use ANY Windows application that is capable of printing for producing high quality HD content for your display. Use applications like PowerPoint, Word, Excel, or your timetable management software to create content for your playlists. Stick to the tools you are used to without having to invest in learning how to use a new, complex design application!
Convenient Content Management
Controlling display content is super-easy with FrontFace for Public Displays. The software comes with a special application called Display Assistant which you can install on any Windows PC. It allows for composing and controlling content and playlists for your display(s). You can use schedules for running time-controlled playlists or display ad hoc content! Working with the intuitive Display Assistant is so easy that even untrained users can work with it hassle-free. Screens can be updated instantly while the software is running either using a local network connection (online) or a USB flash drive (offline update).
Interactive Features? No Problem!
Do you want to add interactive features to your digital billboard? E.g. you can allow a user to request certain information or content directly by interacting with the screen. It is possible to use touch screens or any type of external (ruggedized) input devices such as keyboard, key pads, special hardware buttons or even RFID readers. With RFID (radio frequency identification) you can make personalized information available to employees by identifying them with their personal transponder key fob or ID card. When there is no interaction with the screen a predefined playlist can be shown.
