The piSignage Server offers services for the user to upload various
types of content, arrange them as playlists, arrange players in groups,
schedule playlists for a group, deploy the content to the players and other
related services needed for a signage service.
The player software is downloaded to Raspberry Pi hardware or to the
Chrome platform or to Chromecast (and in future piSignage will support more
platforms such as Apple TV). The player software will display the downloaded
playlist and content on the connected display as per playlist parameters.
Player also controls display functions such as powering on/off etc.
5. Fees and Charges
The player software cannot be used without license and each of the
players need an individual license to run(i.e. license can not be shared
between two devices). If the player stops working or develops any issues,
the license can be redeemed by writing to Company at firstname.lastname@example.org.

free licenses (currently 3) solely at the company discretion and this sign-up offer(not
