Focusing on simple web-based software combined with low-cost hardware, RedPost’s goal is to replace the world’s bulletin boards with digital signs.
With the non-technical user in mind, RedPost’s digital signs can easily configured to use wifi to connect to RedPost’s Corktop software, where the user organizes a playlist of posters that then plays on the digital signs.
Using a combination of web standards, open source hardware, and off-the-shelf hardware, RedPost keeps costs low and keeps things simple. With beta test sites at a Dept. of Energy lab, Purdue University, an ad agency, the Boston Children’s Museum, a healthcare clinic, and elsewhere, RedPost is moving from the development phase to rapid growth.
