Hardware/software for indoor digital signage? Answered
What I would like to build is a digital signage kiosk. I am using a 32" LCD display and wood for the housing but I can't figure out in which direction to go regarding the hardware/software which would breath life in this stuff.
Room is not a problem inside the housing, so I could go mini or a normal pc, x64 or ARM. The interface would be rendered in HTML (+java script for animation), which would contain some short (1-2 minute) video clips, but overall the requirements are not that big. So here comes the software decision: windows or android???
Android with smaller lighter (energy saving) hardware or the ARM powered Raspberry Pi is tempting, but maybe in the future I would incorporate touch capabilities which may need a more sophisticated hardware...I am confused, which way to go????
