NowCaster

Turn any monitor into a live weather, promotion, and advertising channel

Home » NowCaster

A complete, ready to run solution for weather and/or advertising display on a single monitor: it plugs into any HDMI port and displays current content downloaded from the Internet via an accessible WiFi connection. Easy to setup and use, it allows you to schedule program content and can run fully unattended 24/7/365.

We offer this product for radio stations to use in their control rooms for an “instant weather briefing” for on-air personnel, displaying live radar, current conditions, and watches/warnings status.

Some of our customers use NowCaster to extend their brand into sports clubs, shopping malls, bars, marinas, golf clubs, casinos, and restaurants.
