PiVision Debuts Bundled Raspberry Pi-Based Digital Signage Player
December 1, 2014 by Dave Haynes
RiseVision gets tons and tons of tinkerers using its free, open-source signage CMS to try to make various devices work and drive a display with content. Some efforts never get past the kitchen table “lab” while others get commercialized.
A company called PiVision has taken the low cost Raspberry Pi micro-PC hardware, added an enclosure and the other necessary bits, and released a $199 CAD all-in offer for a payer and software.
Comes with a memory card, power adapter and HDMI cable. The pitch is, it works pretty much out of the box – after you key a display ID code.
While I have seen through Silver Curve’s Aperture very high quality video and motion graphics coming off the Pi devices, this product overtly says it is intended for low-demand set-ups such as menu boards, info boards, conferences, directories, and event signs.
