touch screen capabilities?

I'm just starting to investigate options for digital signage, and wondering if Rise Vision supports touch screen presentations, and if so, how does it work?

I see various threads on this, but not really any useful information on how this would be implemented.

Also (sorry, I'm being multi-topic here), is this system set up so all presentations run in a web browser? (Chrome) That would be a bit different from other systems I've looked at, but certainly would have some advantages.

And can someone enlighten me on media player hardware options? Other systems use small, compact HDMI-connected media players; I assume this operates the same way? (i.e., doesn't require a desktop / laptop to be connected to each display... right?)

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

Rise Vision does support touch screens.  Many of the Gadgets/Widgets have interactivity built in to them.  In terms of whether the Display supports it would depend on having the appropriate drivers from the touch screen installed.

Presentations that are created are simply HTML pages to be run in a browser (our choice is Chrome).  This does require a computer to run the Player software.  The computers can be of varying sizes depending on the needs of the establishment.  For instance, the use of Intel's NUC is quite popular and it is a very small form factor.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info, Neal. I did get a callback from Ray; he was super-helpful and answered a bunch of questions I had.

This looks like a really nice platform. Seems so "un-clunky" -- unlike some of the others I've looked at. I really like the flexibility and ability to edit HTML and use CSS. Nice!
