Noventri has announced the recent release of Noventri Suite Digital Signage Software. The software update, Version 2.2, brings to users major new features that will simplify the user experience when creating content for information displays.
Features of the new version of Noventri Suite include:
- Faster content downloads
- New resolutions and updates that work on a wider range of monitors
- Power-saving ‘sleep’ mode for a wider range of monitors
- Dynamic pages that allow for simplified project creation
- Playback that starts while still updating – publishing is faster
- Noventri Server runs as a service in the background
- Run multiple servers on the same computer
- Undo/Redo function
- More powerful layer arrangement options
- RS-232 Control
Noventri Suite can be installed on any windows-based computer and is the companion software to the Noventri Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player. Users can create content in full HD, add multiple region types, and overlap other regions with full transparencies while using industry standard image formats such as .jpg, .png, and .bmp.
Noventri Suite functions as a stand-alone simple digital signage player; although some features, such as scheduling, transitions, and database features are functions that are performed when combined with the Eco-Series line of Noventri players. Noventri Suite is a no-cost digital signage software; there are no licenses, no subscriptions, and no hidden costs of any kind.

Noventri recently came across this particular entry at QSRWeb.com titled, “Where are the traditional menu board companies?”’
We must say, “Kudos, Scott Sharon.” He is right on when he presents several thought-provoking questions in the second paragraph. His statement, “ …most of the digital menu boards are sold by companies outside the menu board industry” is an interesting observation.
We agree wholeheartedly that IT and AV companies are popping up everywhere with the idea that they can jump on the digital menu board bandwagon and mount some video screens using standard digital signage mentality and call them digital menu boards. But they don’t always work.
Scott’s article confirmed what we have always known…just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. There is more to digital menu boards than just screens, software and hardware and this is where IT and AV companies drop the ball many times.
Likewise, for menu board companies to begin offering digital menu boards there would be a stupendous learning curve to overcome. They are far removed from the technology know-how needed to launch digital menu boards and would soon find themselves needing to partner with companies that understand the technology, ergo, IT and AV.
Ideally the solution would be to develop a symbiotic relationship with both…someone who knows the technology as well as the needs of QSRs and menu board usage. After all, traditional menu boards work, it’s just that they are cumbersome to update and compliance is sporadic throughout franchises. Digital menu boards must provide a solution to the aforementioned, but also understand the design elements of a menu and bring to the table a stable, low-cost, easy-to-use technology.
Having worked closely with QSR’s for years, we, by all means do not know everything there is to know about the menu board industry, but we have developed essential relationships and gained inside knowledge along the way. As a company, we can confidently say, there is definitely more to digital menu boards then meets the eye.
Thanks again, Mr. Sharon and QSRWeb.com for sharing this fundamental insight
Faster and Simpler – Noventri Announces Version 2.0.754 Release of Noventri Suite and Noventri Server Digital Signage Software!
Noventri Suite and Noventri Server digital signage software brings more speed and greater simplicity with the release of Version 2.0.754!
Smithsburg, Maryland, February 1, 2011: Noventri has just released Version 2.0.754 of their digital signage software…Noventri Suite and Noventri Server. The release provides changes and updates that offer faster publishing, faster content upload, multiple bug fixes, and increased stability and simplicity.
Noventri optimized the process in which content is published to the Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage player further simplifying the content creation and publishing process. Previously when sending or publishing content the software would send the entire project with all of its pages to the affected players. The latest version sends only the updated pages providing greater speed when publishing.
“For example,” says Tim Rollins, Sr. Project Manager for Noventri, “say you have a project with pages “A, B, C, and D”. If you decide to modify page “B” and publish, the previous version of software would require that all pages “A, B, C, and D” be sent to the player. With the new version only the modified page, “B”, will be sent. This saves a great deal of time on publishes because we are eliminating unnecessary traffic and content generation.”
Noventri Suite and Server is a powerful, no-cost digital signage software… no licenses, no subscriptions, no hidden costs of any kind. It is easy-to-use, feature-rich and is available for immediate download. The only thing that Noventri asks is that users provide feedback, suggestions and ideas for improvement of the software on the Noventri Digital Signage Forum.

Smithsburg, MD, January 18, 2011: Leading technology rollout company, Concert Technologies, recently deployed Noventri digital signage technology and software as a solution for their corporate communications throughout their facility.
Concert Technologies, which is based in Dulles, Virginia, chose Noventri Eco-Series SF-100e digital signage technology and Noventri Suite and Noventri Server software to create corporate messages internally. The signage provides content for training, accountability messages and to create some friendly competition within the call center.
“We were pleased with the functionality and pricing,” says Nathaniel Scott, Process and Systems Manager for Concert Technologies. “[We] set it up in a remote office. From [that] office we control what content is displayed. The quality of the image is unmatched and it has served its purpose as the call center has stepped up the quality of their work. We hope to pursue other uses [for it].”
The Eco-Series SF-100e is a ‘green’, non-PC-based digital signage player manufactured by Noventri. Noventri Suite and Noventri Server digital signage software is included with the player. Since the player uses less than four watts of power per screen, it keeps energy consumption minimal. Also, it is a non-PC technology, which requires no maintenance. It is easy to install and eliminates excessive wires, unsightly boxes and ventilation worries.
