Building a Digital Signage (Info Display) System?
We're setting up a simple "digital signage" system at our school. It will consist of one screen or TV and a computer that shows a slideshow and real-time information on the screen. The computer will be connected to network, but will have no input devices, and thus shouldn't have a graphical desktop environment. Here's some characteristics of the system I'm after:
What is the recommended approach for building such a system? Is there some open source software designed specifically to do the job? We do have Linux server(s), should they be necessary. Thanks in advance.
