RASPBERRY PI OPERATING SYSTEMS

Raspberry Digital Signage displays web pages from LAN, Internet or internal (SD-card-hosted) folder in a restricted full-screen view. See the home page for cheap and extremely powerful web-based digital signage solution with the Raspberry Pi. Some references:

 

Raspberry Slideshow is focused on quick-to-set-up image and video slideshows for the Raspberry Pi. Insert a USB key with image/video files or retrieval informations and boot: the system will display a slideshow of them in a full-screen view. See the home page for media slideshow digital signage.

Raspberry WebKiosk is designed for secure web kiosks and multi-user web workstations deployments (libearies, cafes, public internet browsing places) where people can surf the web with a normal browser. It’s not intended for digital signage because browser view is not fullscreen and it allows users interaction. See the home page. Raspberry WebKiosk is the Raspberry Pi port of Instant WebKiosk for i386 computers.

Raspberry ownCloud, a complete, plug-and-play solution for your personal data cloud, a Raspberry Pi-powered ownCloud installation. Useful for owning your cloud storage or automatically backing up Dropbox or Google Drive data to an external USB hard drive. Please go to the project home page for more.

 

i386 PC AND MAC OPERATING SYSTEMS

Secure-K is the most advanced live operating system: an extremely secure and full-featured portable operating system which runs on any computer and boots from a military-grade USB key with both hardware and software encryption. This paradigm allows you to carry your own workbench (programs and data) with you, in a hardware encrypted USB key, and in the same way to be able to use a clean and secure operating system for online transactions and for every security-critical activity.

Secure-K features:
  • encrypted data persistence,
  • UEFI compatibility,
  • data exchange partition readable by all the operating systems (including Windows, which usually cannot read multi-partitioned keys),
  • complete system and kernel updates (this is a world premire for a ISO live system).

 

Instant WebKiosk is designed for secure web kiosks and multi-user web workstations deployments (libearies, cafes, public internet browsing places) where people can surf the web with a normal browser. It’s not intended for digital signage because browser view is not fullscreen and it allows users interaction. It’s a “live”, browser-only operating system.
