Let’s say we want to create a new signage screen to display in the entrance to our office to inform people not to bring wet umbrellas inside.
Step 1: Prepare The Media
First, we need some media to make our sign look pretty. We’ll go with a video showing rain running down a window that should look nice in the lobby.

Next, we go into the VuePilot dashboard, click “Apps” from the sidebar and create a new “Announcement” app
Fill in the details of the form with your message and give the app a name.
