We have a TV to laptop setup in our lobby and need software to display function events, and customizable information with aesthetics in mind.  Does anyone know of any? Or even a media center type computer geared for this? It is not much information we will be displaying so it doesn't need to be super intricate editing software.

Thanks,

I have looked at this solution which would work great for a single display:

http://www.digitalsignage.com/

but I need a larger scale solution for my organization that would be the owner of the content onto none technical users so I went with this:

http://www.smartsign.se/en/english

Which would also work for you. With the Smartsign you can use an appliance directly connect to the TV but usb or if you have a new Samsung or NEC the player applet can be run native on the display and use the cloud solution to pull the content.

Basically all you need is a simple presentation tool like LibreOffice's Impress, with which you can make slideshow type presentations. Most TV can be connected directly to PC's and with impress you can select the TV's display as the output for your impress presentation:

Tim do you have a Southern United States reseller contact? Or any in the US? I couldn't find one.

Hi, in my former company we had a contract with Navori (http://www.navori.com/_newsite/en/), they have a really clean and reliable solution for these kind of things. I would absolutely recommend them as one of the best solutions for digital signage management. They pricing is flexible, so you can choose your preferred option.

You can also use Google Web Designer tool: http://www.google.com/webdesigner/ which is a handy tool that is being used in these cases. I also know someone who used Xibo and they were happy with that: http://xibo.org.uk/ , this supports a wide range of media.
