Why Chrome is the best choice for Digital Signage
- It's easy to manage
You can remotely configure, monitor and troubleshoot all devices from one management console – these devices can be from any number of manufacturers, and there’s no messing about with different systems for device setup, IT policies, anti-virus, data backup, OS updates/patches etc.
- The prices are low
Chrome is designed to run on affordable hardware, such as the new ASUS Chromebit, making it economically viable for a scalable range of opportunities from corner shops to multiple locations in large chains. Chrome devices allow businesses to invest more in assets and less on managing them.
- It has reliable performance
Chrome devices are designed for long uptimes with simple architecture and no moving parts, the AOPEN products in particular have been robustly engineered for long endurance and are designed to remain fully functional 24x7x365. How many customer displays have you seen ruined by Windows crashes and BSoD requiring a manual reboot ?
- The security is inherent
Chrome devices encrypt your data and receive automatic security updates. Chrome does not need separate anti-virus software and another layer of management to run it. Cloud-based data and tools minimize security issues, e.g. when a device goes AWOL, sensitive business data is protected with multi-layered security - continuous updates, virus protection, sandboxing, encryption, verified boot.
- A good range of choice
There are plenty of hardware products, apps and peripherals from a number of manufacturers to choose from to suit individual signage needs. Some good background information is here https://www.google.co.uk/work/chrome/devices/for-signage/ but please contact your Tech Data account manager or the firstname.lastname@example.org team for further details and help in choosing the most suitable machines for you and your customers.
- Major providers sell CMS
You don’t have to buy Chrome Management Systems for digital signage from unknown 3rd parties. CMS and related applications are available from large and experienced companies such as Signage Live (signagelive.com) , App Space (www.appspace.com) and Scala (scala.com)
Don’t forget that through the AV expertise in the Maverick
