Intranet or public information extension

Post by snorhyvel » Wed Feb 02, 2011 6:16 pm

Hi all! I don't quite know myself what I need or what it's called. My mission is to build a flexible, easy to maintain public information system. The information is to be published on LCD screens on various places in public areas. So the thing is that no one is to surf in to a site to get the information, the information is to be shown on the screens automatically like sort of a Powerpoint presentation.
I need the following features:

* Be able to maintain and change content on the fly, without any one see it
* Be able to schedule different content on different times and days
* Be able to publish, text, sound, pictures and video
* Be able to edit content from different computers

So, I really am not even sure that building a website on a CMS is the right way to go? I'm very grateful for any ideas and tips about this.

Thank you!

So the word to search for is "digital signage"
I never tried the software but here is a free edition:

if you want features like scheduling u might need to subscribe to a commercial product. dont know if there is any good freeware out.

i doubt that joomla would be the right way, you need good templating to scale to the screen size and you are not able do display office docs right away.
