Why waste time with other noticeboards when you could have the real thing? Whether you're running a professional office, a prim factory, or a tourist trap shop, the InfoCenter Display Kit can really make your presence known, and get your message out.

The InfoCenter Display Kit includes four different models. Each model has standard and Duo variants - Duo variants typically quadruple text capacity.

InfoCenter Personal - 16 x 1 (2 LI) or 32 x 2 (5 LI) characters. Ideal for general commercial use, and includes a variety of animated graphics for stores.
InfoCenter Notice - 16 x 7 (8 LI) or 32 x 14 (29 LI) characters. The highest-capacity model, ideal for news & information. Also includes graphics for commercial & industrial purposes.
InfoCenter Highway - 16 x 3 (4 LI) or 32 x 6 (13 LI) characters. Best suited for overhead gantry installations on roads, but can be used for walkway or general commercial applications.
InfoCenter Matrix - 4 x 2 (1 LI) or 8 x 5 (3 LI) characters. A road sign display with many graphics for lane control, variable speed limits, hazard warning, detours, turn restrictions, and more.

All models, excluding the Highway, have a toggleable mounting bracket. All are resizable and modifiable (scripts excluded), and can be linked to other objects (as long as multiple signs are not linked together).

InfoCenter models run on our grid-renowned InfoCenter Manager software, allowing you to program them from anywhere - not just in the same region. Our intuitive web interface guides you through setting your message, which can include multiple individual "slides" for any message you like. Plus, you can group signs together and save message templates, making it super simple to network. The included HTTP API lets you set your sign (or anyone else's, with their permission) from an LSL script anywhere in-world, or (for advanced programmers) from any web server anywhere in the real world.

Great for a massive space station to keep my peeps from getting lost. Or me, for that matter.

I'm sure it'll be great once I can figure out how to get more letters on the screen! XD Admittedly a bit pricey, but will be worth it once I can figure it out fully!

Great Display For Dynamic Data

Posted November 01, 2019 by Natasha Petrichor 4 stars

These are a wonderfully unique concept, and they're *everywhere* in SL for a reason: They're the best way to display ever-changing text/data, and a great-looking alternative to the usual texture text displays that tend to hit the uncanny valley between static signs and dynamic displays. These are dynamic displays that *look* dynamic, and they're very good at what they do!

The web configuration interface is also a very user-friendly way to manage them, and a lot better for that purpose than any in-world solution, but it does pose challenges for scripted interaction: While the API makes these a very powerful way to display data from LSL scripts, they're also very slow to update, which required a major rewrite of the project I originally bought them for. So, if you want to display dynamic data on them using the API, be aware that even the small signs will take upwards of a minute to process the API call, update the signs, and be ready for another API call. And don't plan on using large groups of these for any sort of time-sensitive or live data, because when an API call is made to a group, every sign in that group is updated consecutively, not concurrently, so a dozen signs can take several minutes to update, and they won't all have the same data at the same time.

The limitations of the API are an edge case that won't affect every user, and if you're not using scripts to update your signs (or if you didn't understand the previous paragraph), consider this a 5-star review, because are beautifully well-made signs with a user-friendly interface that will work very well if you just want to type into a box and have it display on the signs. And the scripts that drive these signs are remarkably robust, which I suspect is where the API slowness comes from; they may not be the fastest-updating signs, but they will almost never fail or display anything incorrectly, and that's a rare gem in the world of LSL scripting.
