We had purchased two Chromebox systems over the summer. Now the Chromebox is not available. Any suggestions on alternative systems from Rise Vision?

Hi
If you are looking at other OS alternatives the Rise Player is also supported on Ubuntu 14.04 (see instructions for Ubuntu https://help.risevision.com/user/create-a-display).  You can also run the player on your OS X so long as it's running the stable version of Chrome (see optimization guide at https://help.risevision.com/user/advanced/display/Mac-Optimization?cid=f114ad26-949d-44b4-87e9-8528a...).

bkallmeyer, 

The Chrombox was removed from our store several months ago. We have some other options up on our store currently at store.risevision.com, give them a look!

Are there any options that you were recommend? The Chromebox was great as it was so easy to setup. I am looking for something similar... plug-n-play!

bkallmeyer,

Any Windows or Linux NUC you purchase from store.risevision.com will be pre-configured with Rise Player. All you should need to do is plug it in and add your DisplayID!

I recommend Intel NUC.

Our NUC5i3RYH, 120GB/8GB, Win 10 is great
