Custom Digital Signage
We have made it very easy to create unlimited custom Digital Signage displays.
While other systems require you to learn new proprietary signage authoring tools, we have created a simple DiscoverVideo Add-in for PowerPoint.
Seems that just about everyone knows how to use PowerPoint. Whether you are an expert with animations and transisions or just getting started, PowerPoint is used everywhere. Even Google Slides seems familiar because it looks and acts like PowerPoint, and you can even export Google Slides as a PowerPoint file.
PowerPoint has a ton of built-in templates and it’s easy to create your own. There are hundreds of fonts, colors and a huge library of royalty-free clipart. Animations are built-in. Transitions between slides is built-in and easy to use. And you can insert full motion HD video clips in your PowerPoint. You can record narrations, include audio, and you can record your own display time for each slide when you run a show.
Update and Replace
Imagine you create a PowerPoint for daily news and announements. Maybe the first slide is “Welcome”, followed by today’s schedule, news and updates, lunch menu, and the tip of the day. You spend a lot of time making it perfect: cool animations and slide transitions give it that professional “pop” to get the attention of your audience.
Tomorrow you open the same PowerPoint and just edit a few things. Maybe a new lunch menu. Maybe a new tip of the day. The edit only takes you a few minutes.
You publish it and the SignStick Digital Signage displays all change to your update. No logging in to the system. No adjustment of playlists. No drama. One click update.
