FAQ: How to make use of the SiteCaster screensaver within a company domain


The SiteCaster screensaver, which is part of the SiteCaster Player and SiteKiosk (since version 8) installation, can be used within the domain network of a company to present useful information for employees. Instead of displaying the company logo as the screensaver you can spread for example current company related news.

The desired content can be easily managed using the Digital Signage/SiteCaster features of the SiteRemote Server. The content will be distributed to all clients that either have the SiteCaster Player or SiteKiosk installed.

You can assign these clients to a specific group using the group policy editor of your company's domain controller. You would then edit the screensaver policies for this group accordingly. You can find additional information regarding the editing of the screensaver group policies on this page: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938799.aspx.

The SiteCaster screensaver file (SiteCaster.scr) can be found in the folder Windows\system32 or Windows\SysWOW64 depending on whether the client uses a 32- or 64-Bit system.
