Major new release with spreadsheet control The new Spreadsheet control is available in all editions of Repeat Signage. There is a built-in spreadsheet editor so you can add spreadsheets within presentations, which means you can layout information in grids with ease. Spreadsheets can also be displayed from network drives so that you change the spreadsheet and Repeat Signage can then update the screen in real time.
We have added a spreadsheet creator/editor to the free tools menu on the main Repeat Signage screen, so you don't need a separate spreadsheet package installed . Spreadsheets are also available in the Repeat Pictures system where they are ideal for adding grids and even graphs to your picture files.
See our Spreadsheet control for more information. A number of new spreadsheet based templates are now available in the new presentation wizard and the new Repeat Picture wizard.
Repeat Signage is successfully in use at Harrisburg International airport.
18 June 2015
"Here at Harrisburg International Airport, we are using Repeat Signage software to display a service that tracks our shuttle buses.
The company DoubleMap provides a live feed via a website portal. Unfortunately, the map and information was very plain. Then we found Repeat Software Ltd. Their Repeat Signage software allows us to display the site within a presentation.
With touch screen support, our marketing department is looking for other ways we can use Repeat Signage software around our terminal.
Support has been excellent and I have never been disappointed. Quick response times along with personal service rates this company very high in my personal satisfaction. I have and will continue to recommend this company to others". Justin McNaughton, Harrisburg International Airport.

Repeat Signage 2015 released and free upgrade for existing customers
Repeat Signage 2015 has arrived and the good news is that there is a free upgrade for all existing customers.
Existing customers just need to download the new version and their existing serial numbers will continue to work.
The big new feature of Repeat Signage 2015 is database support in our new Corporate Edition and our Media Wall edition. Most Repeat Signage controls (where applicable) can now collect and display information from database. There is a new Data grid control.
The Animated gif control now supports SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files.
The Flash RSS control allows the display of text from databases (in the Corporate and Media Wall editions). There is also a manual option so that you can scroll text/news that you type in rather than using an RSS feed.
The Flash banner control allows the display of text from databases (in the Corporate and Media Wall editions). You can now remotely update the 'FADER 01' option from www.repeatserver.com as well.
The Web browser (and web widgets) control allows collection of HTML from databases (in the Corporate and Media Wall editions). This control has had a major update with the following features:
Zoom feature added so that you can set a zoom percentage if required. This is on the Page tab of the properties screen. 100% is the normal size. 50% zooms to make page half the size and 200% makes the page twice as big. You can use any value between 20% and 500%.
Part of page –
You can just display part of a website page. See the displaying just part of a website page help page.
Widget Wizard –
New 'Widget wizard' button which will help you display your widget/HTML easier by embedding it into a complete website page. This allows the top left position to the set and the optional setting a background colour rather than the default white one. You can preview the HTML/widget and set zoom options to increase or decrease the displayed size of the widget.
Login URL's –
You can now use login URLs to which allow you to login to certain sites and then display a protected page.
The Picture control, Text label control, Text block control all now support collection of information from databases.
There are now 1700+ Repeat icons for you to use in your presentations. These can be displayed by the Picture control and the Flash banner control. These are available in the main Repeat Signage designer and also in the Repeat Pictures system which can be used to create adverts/pictures.
The only change in the installation package is that we are now using Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0, rather than version 3.5SP1. All Windows computers that have their Windows Updates up-to-date will already have had this installed but if not then the Repeat Signage setup program will install it automatically.
There are several new features, as listed above. Just make sure you upgrade all of your computers to Repeat Signage 2015. For example, if you change your designer PC to Repeat Signage 2015 and use features like Repeat Icons , then these features will not play on previous versions of Repeat Signage.
