Design with a Familiar Interface
The PADS Designer interface is very similar to Microsoft Office and PowerPoint. The powerful design tool enables you to create dynamic presentations for your displays, easily and efficiently, with drag and drop functionality.
You can include any kind of content including Rich text, Scrolling Text, Videos, Images and Image Sliders, Html and Internet pages, PowerPoint, Flash, PDF, RSS, XML, Twitter, Facebook, live data, live TV and more. Simply drag-and-drop your content into PADS Designer or connect to external data and compose a dynamic display.
The PADS Designer’s advanced features will also allow you to create rules and triggers around your content giving you endless possibilities and make your content dynamically react to live conditions. This can ensure you get the right message across to the right audience.
Display Live Real Time Data!
PADS4 Digital Signage allows you to display live data from external sources directly into your presentations. With a native inbuilt wizard it has never been easier to include data from RSS, XML, Excel, Access, SQL, Social Media, Microsoft Exchange, ODBC, OLEDB and more. Automatically bring in data and the system will update whenever the external data alters. Live data for your displays!
PADS includes no less than 35 data providers, varying from a simple text file provider to generic database drivers, meaning that there is always a provider to link to your data.
