About a year ago we started to realise this wasn’t just about our community.
We’ve decided NowScreen’s future should be true to its roots. For us that’s much less about a digital signage solution (which, in many ways it is) and more as a tool for communities looking to solve that age old problem – engaging with their people.
We’re nearing the end of the project funded by Eastbourne Borough Council through a grant from central government to create a network of local screens.
We thought you might like to see where they are on a map:
Recently we’ve been asked to deploy NowScreen in larger numbers for individual clients.
These include a series of sports centres, a corporate setting and a college campus. Here’s a little about each.

Are you starting to get to grips with custom content for your corporate digital sign network?
Or perhaps you’re looking for some tips on how to schedule content. This podcast from Digital Signage Works is worth a listen. Click the play button above.

Another of Eastbourne’s biggest hotels has installed NowScreen to run in bedrooms. Learn how we do this and why it’s so powerful for hotel owners and so useful for guests.
What happens if a user sees an event on our screens and wants to take the info with them? We’ve been pondering this question for a while and here’s our first answer.
This 7lbs 4oz bundle of joy arrived at 4.15am this morning. Welcome Toby Price, son of Rob. Both he and his mum are doing very well.
We’ve pencilled Toby in to run a few user research sessions and maybe a spot of sprint planning.
Back in March we shared the first personalised version of the NowScreen case. Since then we’ve moved on to a laser engraved option after some help from a local firm.
We’ve just heard that Theo, one of our two developers and the boy wonder who came up with the NowScreen idea in the first place, has just scored big time on his ‘A’ levels.
