"Retriever Software supplies Point-of-Sale software and hardware to Movie theaters throughout North America. We recently developed signage software that reads the film schedule from the ticketing software and displays movie information on LCD screens in the Box Office area and above the Auditorium doors. The system displays the movie titles, ratings, and show times and updates in real time from the Point-of-Sale server. The software is loaded onto a Windows XP computer with multiple video outputs (up to 16 per computer) that usually resides in the theater office.

The signs that display the movie information are spread throughout the theater and are often hundreds of feet from the computer. The use of video cable between the computer and the signs is impractical and cumbersome, if not impossible. The Mini-Cat UV1 units are installed at the location of each sign and at the computer. The Mini-Cats eliminate the need for long VGA cable runs, simplifying installation and operation of the signs."
