Hydravision is an all in one digital signage solution like you would see in you local dentist or doctors etc. It can play jpeg, swf etc.
The unique thing about this product is how easy it is to set up you set zones up on the main screen and sizes them by clicking on the line and moving it. Once you have decided where you want the zones to go then you can start adding media this is done by double clicking on the zone and choosing it from the list on the C drive in your media folder. There is a small preview window which allows you to see what the media is prior to allocating it. There are many transition style available so if you have a lot of jpegs you can use this to make it a little more interesting for the viewer instead of watching picture after picture just appear in the zone. There is a function to set the time up in seconds for each piece of media so that you have complete control.
One you have decided on you media then you can go back to the set up and add borders in you own corporate colours as the RGB set up is there you decide on the width, bevel, and the also you can have a primary colour and secondary colour so the border can have a stripy effect.
Once this is done now is time to set up your schedule this is done over 7 days and each day can have as many templates as you want as it is all done on a 24 hours clock. There is a repeat day function so if you want the same template two days in a row you don't have to keep setting them up.
The media can be taken from a USB stick or straight from the server you just highlight your media and import it.
Most of the set up is pulled straight through from windows so there's a lot of the system the user will already know.
This is the easiest digital signage system I have used and great for small business's and large corporate firms alike.
You can buy it many resellers who are all trained by the manufacturer.
Summary: Great all round product
