ORANGE DIGITAL SIGNAGE
A RASPBERRY DIGITAL SIGNAGE PORT FOR THE ORANGE PI 3 LTS BOARD

Orange Digital Signage is an operating system designed for digital signage installations on the Orange Pi 3 LTS: 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 – a WordPress plugin is available for the purpose).

A digital signage example

(the image is just an example of what you can display – webserver content is up to you)

Orange Digital Signage comes with the latest Chromium builds (featuring HTML5 capabilities), so you can display more attractive resources, more easily. For example, you can display your own advertising site, electronic signs, booking site, queue or timetable management web application or create superb web presentations with Google Slides (Powerpoint compatible) or similar software.

The following is an example built using Orange Digital Signage and DAKboard, a customizable display for photos, calendar, news, weather and so much more.

By the way, in order to test the Orange Pi’s capabilities for HTML5 3D rendering, you can use this, https://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html, as a signage URL.

 

Multi-display

A REST JSON API is available, so any device running Orange Digital Signage can be consumed via its API interface. The REST API allows you to command all your displays from a centralized management interface or scripts of your own (not provided here).
