The Text Ticker feature allows you to display a scrolling text ticker on your screen in a scrolling text box. Customize the text to show upcoming events, announcements, birthdays, or general information about your company, employees or even clients.
As one of the oldest methods of eye-catching communication, marquees can be found across multiple forms of media. Our Mvix CMS software is no different. With our CMS you’ll be able to create custom messages on your displays. These scrolling feeds are perfect for custom updates that are too long for the screen but not important enough to take up a large portion of the screen. With the potential to be used across most digital signage solutions, this feature is a simple but important feature to include in your displays.
Craft custom content to display the right message to your audience. Show general information or play it up with fun facts. You can also customize the text font, box colors, speed, and animation to ensure it fits your company’s branding and style. Whether or not your text ticker is being used in a schedule, change the content at any time and have it automatically update on your screen.
