Software for an alert marquee
July 26, 2012 8:17 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a software package that will function as an alert marquee. i have a series of displays that I would like to have a banner across the top of the screen. I'd like this software to monitor a mailbox or receive an RPC message to display a short message. Basically I want a desktop version of a text message alert for a few status monitor PCs with large wall mount monitors. Does anyone have an existing solution? I'd prefer not to have to write my own.

Have you looked at Growl or Snarl?

What you're describing is called digital signage software. There are tons of packages out there, ranging from free (second link in that search) to tens of thousands of dollars.
