Raspberry Pi Digital Signage Webinar Replay

raspberrypi1If you missed Canonical‘s webinar yesterday on using Raspberry Pis and Ubuntu Linux for digital signage, you can hit this link and get a replay of the one-hour session.

I blabber on for a bit at the start as I host the thing, but the attraction is Viktor Petersson, who runs Screenly, a signage CMS built around the low-cost micro PCs.

It’s worth a listen if you are looking at a signage project that somehow has to bridge a tight budget with something that isn’t a crossed-fingers exercise. Petersson’s company has sold licenses for 1,000s of installed players, and they’re not all 1-2 unit non-profits. He also gets into how and why he’s moving the player software over to Ubuntu Linux.

Petersson is also the subject of next week’s Sixteen:Nine Podcasts episode, which will be up on June 8th.
