A. One of the leading uses of eScreenz is to promote green initiatives. Simply set the screensaver to come on after 5 minutes and the PC and Monitor to go to sleep after 10 minutes. That gives more than sufficient time to use eScreenz effectively.

In addition, eScreenz Quick View allows users to view slides anytime - without waiting for the screensaver. Users click the eScreenz desktop tray icon and choose View Slides.

Entre Computer Services (developer of eScreenz) hosts the content server portion of eScreenz at their secure data center. In addition, the default Relay Service is also installed at Entre’s secure data center.

To enhance performance of large installations of eScreenz, you may install additional eScreenz Relay Services on any IIS 7.5 (Windows Server 2008R2) or later Web server within your internal network. The eScreenz Relay Service caches the content you have published within your organization, reducing network traffic through your firewall to the public Internet.

A. In short, no. The client is a screen saver and runs using the login credentials of the logged in user. The administrative (content) server is an authenticated Web-based application which requires a separate login. We would be happy to discuss any single sign-on requirements in more detail during your demo.
A. 

eScreenz is compatible with all current versions of Microsoft Windows: XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It will run in both standard edition and 64 bit editions of Microsoft Windows.

Note: All PCs must have the .NET Runtime Environment version 4.0 or higher installed to run the eScreenz client.  If eScreenz is manually installed and the .NET Runtime is not present, the installer will prompt you to install it first. For unattended automatic installation using facilities such as an Active Directory Group Policy, the .NET Runtime Environment should be installed using a separate group policy prior to installing eScreenz with a second group policy.
