I'm looking for non-subscription-based digital signage software and/or software that may not be made for it, but would do the trick
I've been tasked with upgrading the display screen in the lobby of the company I work for. Currently, it's an old CRT monitor in a kiosk connected to some kind of super old title-generating hardware box. We just use it to welcome visitors (by name) to the company. Our IT department suggested running the new system off of an Intel NUC. Intel has a page dedicated to using the NUC for this purpose with links to various software packages which all seem like they'd do what we want and more, but they all seem to be subscription-based. I've done lots of googling and have only found stuff that's subscription-based.
So, I'm wondering if anyone knows of any non-subscription software for digital signage, or if anyone can suggest a way to "home-brew" something. It would need to be simple to use for various people who work at our front desk, allow me to setup templates so they could just plug in information, and ideally not require them to do anything other than save the file when they're done (or export into a specific location).
I don't think we need to show videos or animations, but that could be a bonus.
