It has created a bit of a buzz to say the least! Just this morning an older gentleman who has been following the progress of the screen asked how it all worked. I was able to sit with him at one of the PC's and help him create a simple image using the graphic design element built in to the signage software. We're using digitalsignage.net by Dynamax which provides a very simple, user friendly dashboard, accessible on any computer as it is internet based. The gentleman was amazed that he could create the image, press a button and within seconds it appeared on the large 55" screen on the wall behind him! Not only that the screen has a twitter feed so we were able to tweet a couple of messages too.
Finally after a number of techie headaches (namely the twitter feed refusing to update!) we have a genuinely interactive tool in our day centre. This has got our minds whirring! Why stop there? A screen can be used for a ton of different reasons. Clients seem to really like seeing photos of themselves on the screen. So next week we're planning to have a digital photo morning, with the results instantly uploaded to the screen. Watch this space...!
