Kommentare: Currently use this system to administer the digital signage across a single site, multi-room nightclub venue. Since installing, it has allowed us to reduce our physically printed promotional costs while increasing session awareness. It has also allowed us to introduce dynamic promotions and allow third parties to advertise within the venue which has opened a new revenue stream for us. All of this has been achieved with very minimal cost using existing low end PC hardware as well as low cost Android boxes.
A great system that has really helped improve our business.

Vorteile: Great centralised management solution for digital signage.
Setup of the server using Docker was very straight forward with a concise step by step guide in the manual.
User management controls allow easy allocation of assets and screens to the relevant people responsible for updates.
While the many options available within layout scheduling does take a bit of time to get your head around, once it has all clicked, it provides a very powerful set of tools to assign assets to screens.

Nachteile: The interface can be slightly confusing to a new user.
Some concepts don't operate as you would initially think and sometimes require a bit of thought to get your head around.

Xibo is a powerful and dependable digital signage platform with many affordable deployment options.

Kommentare: Xibo has allowed us to offer a digital signage solution to our customers that has transformed their marketing initiatives and has provided measurable returns on digital signage campaigns. Their customer service is fantastic, and the Xibo team is also available for full customization of custom features. Xibo is highly underrated in the world of big, digital signage companies and software options.

Vorteile: Xibo has a very simple pricing structure with options for all budgets. It includes many powerful widgets for free and offers HTML coding for full customization. In addition, the Windows version is open source and free. The Xibo software is very stable, and we find we have minimal issues that are usually fixed with a simple reboot. From digital menu boards, to custom layouts, video walls and dynamic content delivery, Xibo has tools to facilitate all of your digital signage deployment needs.

Nachteile: No touchscreen options yet. However, this function is coming soon.

Kommentare: We decided to implement a digital signage system and were unsure of how it would go over, so we wanted a pilot program. Initially we anticipated Xibo to be only a temporary stand in until we were ready to commit to a more expensive product. As we learned the system and developed content for Xibo, we decided to stick with it, as it is remarkabley customizable and capable if you're willing to put in the effort to develop content. We received many complements on our digital signage and some were amazed the quality and type of content we were able to use with such a low cost solution.

Vorteile: Aside from the cost, this is a fully featured digital signage system. This includes the players and browser based content management system. The CMS is pretty straight forward to use and has pretty good granularity when it comes to assigning user roles and permissions.

Nachteile: The biggest downside has been the slow development and update cycle.

Affordable cloud based signage

Vorteile: It’s value for money. This is its most attractive feature. The ability to also white label and resell is a major feature why we have chosen to distribute this product in our business.

Nachteile: Features and the interface needs some improvement. Upcoming features such as playlists and touch screen ability should fix this.
