With the broadcast-scheduling feature, information can be programmed to appear just at the right time. Events can be scheduled by date, hour, minute and second to control a message presentation. IRISTEXT can control an unlimited number of other IRISTEXT Video Billboards via Internet or by local network. Many CATV head-ends can be linked this way to receive and display information.

IRISTEXT Video Billboards are dedicated reliable 24x7 equipment designed specially to accomplish a very specific task: the editing and broadcasting of information.


IRISTEXT's Mark+ line includes 4 models designed with 24x7 technology. The Mark IV+ and Mark V+ require a Personal Computer for editing while the Mark II+ is completely stand-alone. The Mark III+ is a broadcast only unit. It can display messages created on another Iristext unit or a PC using I-Reach software. All models also include a clock/calendar, an express message crawl and unlimited telephone support for 60 days.
