Hopefully this isn't to dumb of a question. What is the major differences between magicinfo pro and magicinfo-i? We are running screens with pro and need to get more of them, so curious to know what the differences are.

Thanks for your help!

MagicInfo-i Standard is discontinued. There is no more development including bug fixing for this s/w, and it is not distributing with new displays.
But Mii is better than MIP IMHO.
+ Web interface for server
+ more stable for weak networks like 3G, Wifi..
+ Author tool is more advanced
- no RSS element, but could be replaced with flash rss tickers.

Regards,
D

I am also curious about the various versions.  We have two new 460EXn monitors.  Software included from Samsung was MagicInfo Pro and MagicInfo-i Advanced Edition (Trial version - 60 days).

I am standing at a fork in the road.  Left or Right?  Anyone out there that can suggest which software to use would be helpful ?

Don't even hesitate. Go for MagicInfo-i Premium:
1 - Web based digital signage solution that complement the Samsung's range of LFD Monitors with embedded PCs.
2 - All users can log in from home, or anywhere in the world through the internet.
3 - Deploy multimedia contents to various screens throughout their organisation.
4 - Secure access to the server.
5 - Easy Management: ability to assign users to independent departments.
6 - Clearly defined individual roles, and access to their own  group of screens.

There are RSS elements available in the MagicInfo-i Author software.

Please be aware that Premium does not support video walls. If you will need VW you will need to buy MagicInfo Video Wall s/w.

The history of magicinfo growing:
Magicinfo Net -> Magicinfo Pro -> Magicinfo i standard -> Magicinfo i advanced(not free) -> Magicinfo i premium(not free for more than 5 screen)

So... go for the latest version.
