hardware recommendations for digital signage / OPS
I've been asked to provide digital signage for my department, and this is all totally new to me. I'm interested in hardware recommendations for our installation. I recently came across the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS). The idea, if I understand it correctly, is to have a very small standard dimension / standard interface computer that can be plugged into a monitor. It also includes the capability for a system manager to redirect KVM for remote management. This might be something worthwhile or simply some vendor's way to increase profits. We'll have a simple system at first (two monitors between 40" and 50", likely displaying different information). Our campus has Four Winds software, and I'll be connecting into that. Are any of you familiar with OPS or Four Winds? What would you do if you were me? ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion listserv can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
