Hey community

I am looking for suggestions on running Rise Vision on a tablet.
I need a pretty simple schedule showing a loop of videos.
The tablet needs to cost in the $100-$200 price range. (Obviously it needs to be locked down so viewers can't browse to their liking...)


One solution I've thought about: Using the new Google Pixel tablet, using the Kiosk App, and showing videos. (I would either use the RV Kiosk App, which I know is not officially endorsed but still works, or start up Chrome's Sign app). I am personally a fan of the Google device management, but not tied to it by any means. The Pixel is $500 tho - out of price range.

Please respond if you have info on these questions, or have other insights:

Has anyone used the RV apps for Android tablets? There are two apps in the Google Play Store (Cenique and Scott's My Rise Player).

Does anyone know if you can 'manage' an Android tablet (say a $200 Samsung tablet) in the same way as a Chrome device? Lock the Samsung tablet down so it works just like a Chromebox/Chromebit?

Other suggestions on tablets?

Maybe a link to another forum that I missed?

Thanks so much. You guys rock.

Cheers
Jeremy

Hey Jeremy,

This Windows tablet might work. I haven't used it before so I don't know how well it will run your content but it's an inexpensive option.

And I have tried out Android tablets using Scott's Digital Signage app (http://www.scottsdigitalsignage.com/p...) which worked well for running very simple content. The downside is that Android is not supported by Rise Vision and is a Community supported project.

Hopefully this helps.

Thanks,
Shea

Jeremy,

Take a look at ELO touchscreen displays. These are great, but not cheep. https://www.elotouch.com/tablets/tablet-10-touchscreen.html
