ESP8266 NodeMCU and WEMOS D1 MINI
The NodeMCU implementation does not support sound, and animated rows us a more modern wipe when updated a line. It has an automatic screen dimmer that activates 5 minutes after the last command.
MacNo, it does not run on a Mac unless it run under Windows emulation. (But watch this space!)
The 'other' softwareThe controlling program however could be running on any platform as all it needs to do is send TCPIP packets to the RemoteSign machine.
In terms of performance, the speed of the animated signs is somewhat influenced by the speed of the processor. Animated signs (with sound) play OK on a Windows ME machine that has a 333Mhz CPU.
