Hi Kevin,

Some of our Community members may be able to recommend hardware to you based on experience.

I would recommend you take a look at store.risevision.com and base your decision based on similar hardware specs to what we have there.

Have a great day!

Take a look at the Intel NUC players. Depending on your needs, I would recommend an i3 or i5 model

Our player is running smoothly, NUC i3/Win, single screen 1080p

Great question, I'm trying to work out the most reliable option too. The way I see things currently:


Chrome boxes

Pros - secure reliable OS, easy to provision, good user experience, reliable hardware.

Cons - not currently supported, chrome OS updates seem to be a moving target for reliability.


Cheap Windows Box ( eg windows 8.1 with Bing)

Pros - cheap. Currently works well even though windows 7 is currently preferred

Cons - hardware reliability


Expensive Windows box ( eg NUC with full version of windows)

Pros - reliable and supported

Cons - price


android box (very cheap to moderate price) or cenique box

Pros - can be customised, good performance for price

Cons - need to use a partner product like Scott's Digital signage Rise Player from google play -not really a con though


Hopefully others can add to this, I'm pretty new here!

Cheers Rupert

Amala,

We can't ship to Australia from our Store, but you are welcome to contact support@thebookpc.com to ask about purchasing the same devices that are sold in our stores to have them shipped to you in Australia.

I hope that helps!

Thanks Robb.

I have one more query. We have 4 target display televisions. Among them, 1 television is small and will be used only to display weather and event schedule. So, can we use the "Intel Compute stick Windows" and for the remaining 50'' screen size, displaying videos and live streaming stuff  use any other highend media player. Will different media players work together ? And also can u suggest media player which supports playing videos and live streaming.

Technically yes, but there are many different Android devices with different chips or something, which actually makes them perform differently. I am sorry I cannot explain in more details because it was long time ago since I tried using Android for signage purposes, but user Oneal is the man with answers: https://community.risevision.com/people/william_oneal.

Alama,

For your example, it sounds like you will have 2 monitors, one small, and one large, is that right? 

If that is the case, you may want to look at one of the Nuc's that has 2 outputs, one HDMI and the other Display Port, this way you can create a Presentation that goes to both monitors. If you are looking for something high end, the i5 may be what you are looking for: https://store.risevision.com/product/202/intel-nuc-i5-windows

Will that work?

Hi Robb, We are having 4 monitors and thinking of using C410 media player. So, this is what we are thinking of mplementing, 1 c410  device connected by HDMI splitter to 2 displays. And another C410 device connected by HDMI splitter to remaining 2 monitors.

Do you think it can work in this way?

Amala,

The best people to ask in regards to the Cenique device's capacity would be Cenique themselves. You can contact them at support@cenique.com
