To get started with Xibo you will need a CMS installation and at least 1 signage player. The CMS can be downloaded as a ZIP / Tarball or it can be hosted in the Cloud with Spring Signage.
We have signage players for Windows, Ubuntu and Android which can be mixed and matched in one CMS.
1.6.3 is our current stable release of Xibo. Please take a look at our release notes for detailed information and any specific instructions for upgrading to this release.
What do I need for the CMS?
- Apache, NGINX or IIS
- PHP 5.3.3 or above
- MySQL with PHP PDO support

Displays Signage Players
Each Display represents a connected signage player and is used to schedule Layouts to be shown.
Displays can be put into Groups for easy Scheduling and Management.
Statistics Proof of Play and Bandwidth
Xibo monitors each Display for bandwidth usage, log in / out events, proof of play statistics and much more.
Don't need scheduling?
Displays even have a default Layout to be shown when nothing else is scheduled.
Permissions Everything has permissions
Xibo Permissions can be as simple or as complex as required. A system can be run to that everyone sees everything, or so that every item is under lock and key.
Permissions can be assigned to individual users.
Each user has a user type which automatically gives them more or less permissions.
Users can be put into groups for even more flexibility. There is a special "Everyone" group to assign permissions to all users.
The easiest way to use Xibo is in the Cloud.
Low cost, professional cloud hosting now available for Xibo.
