- has a Simulator that shows how the message will display.
- allows you to recall a message and format that you have created previously and modify it to create a new message in that same format.
- supports the widest variety of connectivity methods -- direct cable connect using RS232 and RS485 on COM1 to COM4, or Ethernet adapters using an IP address.
- allows you to send custom BMP graphics files to the Alpha 330C sign.
- comes with a graphics and animations program that will allow you to create those graphics and animations.

Alpha Web Ticker stores your messages as files. Messages can be reloaded from disk as you need them. Today's message files become tomorrow's message templates. You can reload a message and resend it to the sign, or you can edit an old message and save it. Most users have many stored messages, and they regularly reuse these saved messages.
Alpha Web Ticker Software can transmit custom graphics (BMPs) to Alpha displays. We will include Paint Shop Pro, a program specifically designed for creating and modifying graphics and animations. Alpha Web Ticker Software will also activate the nine animations that are built into Alpha displays.
