SOFTWARE PLATFORM

Carousel Enterprise Server provides a complete framework to run a large-scale Carousel network. It includes one Carousel Channel License and has the ability to run up to 1,000 channels of digital signage on Windows® Server 2008/2012. You can use your own server hardware, or you pair it up with a Carousel 430, allowing you to run up to 300 channels of content.

For smaller systems, a more cost effective solution is our Windows® 7 Professional edition. It offers the same features as the Enterprise edition but only supports a maximum of 15 channels/players.
