Hello. We are a telecommunications provider for phone, cable tv, internet, etc. Currently, we use a system from www.scala.com for our digital signage.

We have a design station, a content management machine, and 7 players. All are running Windows XP. Basically, all design work is done on the design station and "published" to the content management machine. It then distributes the content out to the correct players, each of which runs the scalaplayer software to display the scrolling bulletin board of ads, announcements and some local weather information. This is then, physically, run from the video card to a TV output card and to the encoders going to the various locations.

Is it possible to use the rise vision solution to output to cable TV? Or, is this only a "closed system" type of display?

There isn't anything that prevents us from outputting to a TV, you'll just need the appropriate hardware to set it up (which is sounds like you do?). You'll need one computer acting as the Display, then you'll need to set it up so that the video feed is broadcast over TV.
The main drawback I can think of with this type of setup is that you wouldn't be able to treat all the displays uniquely (separate content for each screen).

Hello,

Can you please explain how I would be able to use the Hauppauge 950 HD external USB TV Tuner with the chrome box and rise vision? I am not technically savvy in terms of coding or any special set up. 

Would I be able to plug the usb tuner to the cable coax and then plug in the usb into chrome box and then use a specific gadget to input into the placeholder to stream cable TV?

Thanks so much!

Inga,

At this time Rise Vision does not support live television streams from traditional sources.
