Xibo Digital Signage is a low-cost, high performance solution to launch your business, workplace or organisation into the future. Xibo doesn’t just replicate print media, but actively increases engagement allowing you to deliver your message more effectively than ever before.

Features

Xibo offers you enterprise-grade features, without the enterprise price tag. Have a look at some of the key features that Xibo offers, that can get you on the road to creating impressive, engaging digital signs to drive your message home.

Create your Content

Easily layout your content and add live information from the web using Xibo's Widgets. There’s no limit to the number of screen designs you can build using the simple drag and drop designer, which offers a wide range of media support.

Integrate third party content such as current weather, traffic, RSS feeds, streaming video, or web sites, and mix them in with your own to create a seamless design.

Schedule to your Screens

Using the Xibo calendar you can schedule your creations to your screens. Choose from simple or advanced scheduling with always on, repeating and dayparting capabilities. Schedule with a click of a button; what you want, where and when you want it.

Make scheduling even easier by organising your Layouts into Campaigns, or throw up a design right after you’ve finished it with Schedule Now.

Manage your Network

Make sure your message is being received. Monitor your network of screens and see the status of each one, check proof of play data and view diagnostic information. Keep things running smoothly, straight from your web browser.

Use Display Groups to organise your network into logical sections, which can be nested or created automatically from a search query, to help you get the right content to the right screens with minimal effort.

Open Source

Community driven with over 7 years development behind us.

We're committed to keeping Xibo Open Source. Everything you need to run your digital signage network with Xibo is Open Source and will always be Open Source.

You can choose Xibo with complete confidence. Download the code and do with it as you will in accordance with our AGPLv3 licence.

Open Source is great, but it can sometimes be a little daunting to tackle a new piece of software all alone. The project offers some commercial products and services designed to help you on your journey, all of which are completely optional.

By choosing any of our commercial services, you are enabling the ongoing development and maintenance of the project by enabling us to employ great developers, support staff and infrastructure.

Our Story

Xibo has been around a long time, check out our story.

A project is born

Xibo began as a final year university project under the care of Dan and James. It was decided to use a web application to design and author content, coupled with a Player application for showing the content. At this stage the Player application was an HTA.

Sept 2004

Open Source

A short while after the university project completed, Alex joined the Xibo team and the project was released to the public under the AGPLv3 open source licence.

Feb 2009

Version 1.0

The project was reorganised and released with the .NET Windows Player as 1.0.0

Apr 2009

Xibo in the Cloud

We launched the low cost Cloud hosting service for the Xibo CMS, with a view to making the Xibo solution available for less technical users.

June 2011

Spring Signage

Recognising that the project needed a dedicated team to develop, maintain and support it, as well as financial backing, Spring Signage was born. The aim of the commercial company is to grow the community, improve the software and provide value added services around the solution.

Oct 2011

Xibo 1.4

A big jump from Version 1.0 and a much better overall solution. 1.4.0 becomes our first enterprise ready version of the software.

Oct 2012

Xibo for Android

Bringing Xibo to Android was the next logical step, allowing users to enjoy Xibo on lower cost Android devices that were becoming popular.

Apr 2013

Xibo 1.6

A major milestone for the project, the 1.6.0 release contained a completely redesigned CMS experience and many more features.

May 2014

Xibo 1.7

Building on the success of 1.6 we released Xibo 1.7, which would be good enough to last us over 2 years!

Jan 2015

Xibo Community

After trying several community forums we launched our Xibo Community. 24,000 posts and 3600 users later and the Community is going from strength to strength.

Mar 2015

Xibo 1.8

Redesigned from the ground up - 1.8.0 is our first release with a full API, push messaging, automated testing and much more.
