Display the latest news on signage screens

Display the latest news along with your own content on your signage screens with the ‘Newsboard’. You can mix the news with your own messages or advertising on the same screen and the constantly updating news will keep people checking the screen and your content at the same time.

Signage screen showing 8 RSS news feeds

The images above and below show a newsboard configured to display 8 and 10 different BBC RSS news feeds. The number in the lower right of each zone is the number of news items it will display (you can switch that off).

You can configure a screen so the news fills the whole screen or show the news in any of the display zones that a screen can be split up into.

Signage Player Screen Configuration

Our system is able to take the news from the feed (BBC feeds at the moment) and insert it into a page template created in our editor that is then displayed on your signage screens. The template allows you to setup how the news display looks.

Showing RSS News Feeds on signage

Once the system is configured, the screens will fetch the latest news automatically so require no user intervention.

The system allows you to set a template against a feed, so different feeds can use different templates for a different look to the others.

You can configure the screen to only show news feeds, or show a combination of feeds along with other content created in the editor, or from our Active Templates messaging system.

A section in the controller allows you to configure the system.

This is an ideal product for use in places such as waiting rooms as you can show your latest messages or offers alongside ever changing news.
