Looking for an inexpensive way to create your first digital signage? Try our free digital signage software, ShowPoint.
ShowPoint is a simple, yet powerful tool that lets you turn PowerPoint presentations into automatically running digital signage on TVs or computer monitors. ShowPoint runs on any Windows computer and monitor so there is no need to purchase special digital signage hardware.
You can set ShowPoint to start automatically when the computer or compute stick controlling your digital signage starts so that your presentation or signage is active as soon as your computing device is running.
You can put your signage file on a network folder and it can be shown on any remote computer hooked to the internal network or via the Internet.
Scanning for Updates
ShowPoint automatically scans the computer or network folder you specify for updates to your presentation and shows ONLY the latest version. So even while the slide show is running, you can still add updates on the fly and know they will be active in a very short time.
ShowPoint copies your presentation on your network onto the local computer hard drive so that if you lose your Internet or network connection, your presentation is not affected and continues to run.
