If you have budget limitations, you can always use Rise Vision Free to display digital signage, videos, animations and slideshows around your school, campus or commercial building. All at no cost. Here are a few ways to achieve your goals with Rise Vision’s free plan.

Free Digital Signage Url

Digital Signage

Any digital signage file, image, or webpage can be displayed using Rise Vision Free. Simply locate the URL (web address) of the digital signage file, image or webpage and enter it when creating a Rise Vision Schedule.

Rise Vision will display the content of the URL on every display that you’ve connected to your Rise Vision account. You can also schedule the URL to be displayed on a rotating schedule with other URLs.

Free Digital Signage Video


If you’d like to display video, simply paste the URL to your video into your Rise Vision Schedule. The video must be set to autoplay. You can schedule to play video in rotation with other digital signage campaigns (images, slideshows, and animations).

Free Digital Signage Slideshows


Any slideshow presentation that is hosted on a slideshow presenting website can be displayed using Rise Vision. The slideshow should be set to autoplay if you would like your viewers to see all the slide play in succession. Just add the URL to a Rise Vision Schedule.

“In one simple click, I can instantly add my content to multiple TV's. If I need to update a slide, no problem; I could do it from home and the material would update instantly. Rise Vision is a huge time saver and so user-friendly!”

Animated Image Files Gif

Animated Image Files (Animations)

Any animated image can be displayed using Rise Vision Free. An animated image can be used as an alternative to a slideshow in most instances.


Use Rise Vision Free With A Rise Vision Paid Account

If you have budget limitations and would like to enable digital signage on more Displays than what your Rise Vision Paid account will cover, you can also power your remaining Displays with a Rise Vision Free account. This is a good solution for Displays that don’t need to be incorporated into your main digital signage programming campaigns.

The Value Of Rise Vision Paid

Rise Vision has been a leading provider of digital signage software since 1992. Since that time, we’ve gotten to know our customers’ biggest pain points and requirements when it comes to using digital signage. We’ve designed our software to eliminate these pain points, cover their requirements, and add value to their weekly workflow.

Save Time And Money

Save Time, Because Time = Money

One of the biggest drawbacks of do-it-yourself digital signage is the time commitment. We’ve found that some customers spend up to 16 hours a week creating, editing, and scheduling their digital signage content. And most notably, these 16 hours do not include the time it takes to set up hardware, configure software and troubleshoot problems that arise.

When you equate that time to money, Rise Vision becomes a no-brainer. We save that 16 hours a week by offering you a huge library of pre-made digital signage templates that scale at high resolution on any display. Not to mention our easy-to-use scheduling system and media hosting.

An easy way to calculate whether or not Rise Vision Paid is right for your organization is to multiply the hourly rate of the staff in charge of running your digital signage campaigns by the number of hours they spend on digital signage work and compare that value to the cost of our paid plans. Generally, if your staff spends over one hour a month on digital signage content creation, scheduling or technical support, Rise Vision Paid has paid for itself.

Rise Vision Works Offline Digital Signage

Rise Vision Paid Works Offline

If you experience an Internet outage or your internal network goes down, Rise Vision Paid can continue to run all your digital signage needs while being offline. Rise Vision Free must be connected to the Internet at all times in order to display digital signage or to access the scheduling application.

Emergency Signage Cap Alert

Emergency Signage

A priceless advantage of using Rise Vision Paid is that you get access to our emergency notification templates and our PunchAlert integration. PunchAlert allows your staff to engage CAP alerts across all your signage displays in case of an emergency. This feature can save lives and protect students and employees from the dangers of active shooters, tornadoes, earthquakes and other disasters.

Never Ending Science Project

Stop The Never-Ending Science Project

Do-it-yourself digital signage can become an endless science project. There’s hardware to manage, software to configure, content to create, not to mention the signage scheduling. Trying to align all of these tasks yourself can be quite an arduous endeavor.

Another thing to consider: If one person is in charge of digital signage at your school or business, that means the digital signage system knowledge leaves when they move on. Don’t get put in a costly corner - do it right the first time and trust an established digital signage software provider like Rise Vision. You’ll be happy you made the decision!

Step 2

Plug in your Display.

Getting started with Rise Vision is easy. You only need two items:

  1. A T.V. or Digital Display
  2. A media player

Once your display and media player are mounted, sign up for a free trial of Rise Vision here. Our easy onboarding process will have you displaying digital signage in minutes flat.

Another option is to purchase a digital signage media player that is pre-configured with Rise Vision software. This simplifies the setup process by providing a more plug-in-play like experience and can help speed up the time it takes IT staff to install digital signage in multiple locations. For those who are interested in this solution, we recommend the
Intel NUC Pentium Linux Media Player.
