Developing a pervasive display system (PDS) tailored to the requirements of a particular environment in terms of the set of devices available, content curation, visualisation, modes of interaction and user customisation can be non-trivial. A platform general enough to support the wide variety of PDS of current interest to both researchers and display owners is still missing. Based on an analysis of a wide variety of existing systems in research and industry, we propose a general metamodel for PDS and present an implementation based on the popular content management system WordPress. We demonstrate the flexibility and use of the developed platform (ScreenPress) by describing the process of developing a showcase application that integrates a variety of services. In addition, we report on a user study conducted with twelve participants with experience in managing the content of various PDS.
