Raspberry Digital Signage is an operating system designed for digital signage installations on the Raspberry Pi: it displays a full-screen browser view restricted to a specified resource. It shows web resources from Internet, local network or local folders (so you can use the Pi itself as the source webserver).

Raspberry Digital Signage comes with the latest Chromium builds (featuring HTML5 capabilities), so you can display more attractive resources, more easily.

Changelog for v.14.0 follows:

  • Screen rotation management completely modified, now it’s up to X.Org, for /boot/config.txt options are getting useless. This was the real big issue of the past build. Thanks to Shawn Gants for the hints;
  • audio fixed, thanks to Michal Maruška and Paul Thurn. Oh yes, this too was annoying;
  • mouse-pointer-always-disabled setting returns to work (useful for touchscreens). The Matchbox window manager flag seems not to be supported any more, so now Raspberry Digital Signage is using the proper flag when launching X.Org via xinit;
  • Chrome autostarts videos by default (newer Chromium builds refuse to autostart HTML5 videos on page load, otherwise);
  • enabled ping for monitoring, thanks to Daniel Miranda for the feedback;
  • better open networks handling added;
  • system has been updated to the latest Raspberry Pi OS Lite (formerly known as Raspbian Lite), with Chromium 86 and rpi-chromium-mods 20201213 packages amongst the others.

Project home.

Enjoy! 🙂
