    I've actually got a raspberry pi in front of me now with xibo installed.

    Someone mentioned it might have a problem with Chromium though.

    Any ideas how to test it?

    Would you mind letting me know what directions you followed to install it?

    Thanks!

    We've just had digital signage added to our Planet eStream system, it's nice and easy to use. See Planet eStream v5 Video Archiving, IPTV and Digital Signage solutions for Schools, Academies, Colleges, Universities and the Private Sector. We now have an all-one one system for archiving our old vhs tapes, recording off freeview, uploading photos, and ditial signage. My boss liked the look of OneLan ONELAN Digital Signage // Digital Signage Specialists, manufacturing Digital Signage Media Players, Complete Solution, Linux Based, Multi-zoned, Multi-media, Live TV, Transparency but it's pricey.

    Might be a bit late on this one, but I've used Sedao Imageflyer (Sedao Digital Signage) all along, it'll run mixed media and anything in a browser such as BBC NEWS 24, easy to configure to your corporate style. Easy to load up your own RSS newsfeed.

    Anybody looking at DS may be interested in this kit....
    Pro Video Instruments SD Video to DVB T Distribution Systems - Pro Video Instruments

    Since the digital switchover CODFM modulators and multiplexers are arriving thick and fast now it's very cost effective to build your own MUX and stream your own channels for display on a Freeview set over your existing RF Loop

    I agree. We have a Samsung MagicInfo and creating a display just to run a powerpoint is very fiddly and time-consuming. I'm now working on wiping the built-in HDD and putting Win7 + Xibo on it, if it will fit.

    MagicInfo is a pain to get your head around but does the trick once you figure it out, makes life easy to have it all built into the screen as well

    We just put an old laptop with the screen removed behind a large plasma. It runs 24/7 with powerpoint.

    @fiza and others interested
    My other school is now looking and I have quotes for onelan, sabercom, magicinfo and signagelive
    Onelan is winning at the moment partly because the company I am using offers on-site training for 6-8 users which is exactly what we need. Web-based training for one user is no good to us

    For those wanting free and easy, I've been trying out Enterprise Digital Signage Software that recently and it seems pretty good...

    We use Xibo at the mo' but might try using it instead for a while.

    Thanks @witch - Can i ask what kind of price they are coming in at. At BETT i got ball park figures from Onelan and they were quite hefty for what you get. xibo, a screen and an old PC would do the same.
