We are looking into creating a directory for our building and want it to be interactive. We already have the Linux Rise players which we'd like to use but are not apposed to purchasing a different player if compatibility is an issue.
1. What touch screens are compatible with the Linux Rise Players? We're going for a large monitor say 50" or larger.
2. Are there any brand touch screens to stay away from? We're currently looking at a samsung 60"
3. What would you recommend for a large touch screen directory?

We have had unreliable results with touchscreens run from Linux in the past. For touchscreen applications, we highly recommend moving to a Windows OS. If you purchase a Windows 8.1 license, you'll be able to install it onto your NUC. Follow our Windows 8.1 Optimization Guide and you'll be all set!

All USB touchscreens should be compatible with Rise Vision, however we have noted in the past that some users have had issues with IR touch screen overlays, especially in areas with high natural light.
