In this case, Hennebont Victor Hugo college is using Linutop solutions
Digital signed is designed with Raspberry Pi using linutop OS XS (5 screens) connected to a Linutop TV private serveur .
It allows to broadcast school informations and students creations, like videos or pictures.
Linutop TV enables playlist edition for each screen:
- the message (webpage), picture, video or pdf
- the display location
- the display timing
- the screen switch off
Linutop TV private server is hosted in a VM (Virtual Machine) from the school. The solution has been installed by download, using the available equipment on site.
This software solution is very affordable, also Raspberry Pi minimise power consumption and it continue to display the informations even if the networck is down.
Linutop OS demo available below, allows you to access simply and rapidly to a Digital Signage solution thanks to “Linutop Kiosk” software.

Seattle, 04 November, 14.00pm
Seattle’s Third Avenue bus stops are among the busiest in the region: one bus stop may serve up to 15 bus lines and can average up to 4000 boardings on a typical weekday.
In order to provide users with a better service, Seattle DOT is deploying a variety of real time transit information around the city.
Local businesses and organizations on Third Avenue have contributed in making the deployment of Linutop systems very simple by hosting the power efficient PCs along with the 40” LCD monitors in their windows.

Picardie region, 20 Novembre, 14.00pm
The Picardie regional unemployment agency project:
Provide visitors at job fairs with the ability to sign up on the agency’s website in order to access their resumes or apply to an opening.
- Limited budget
- Software compatible with recycled computers
- Low maintenance: ability to configure easily the limits of navigation authorised depending on the job fairs
Solution: Linutop OS is an inexpensive solution, which allows to repurpose a large panel of computers: the minimal system configuration (starting at 700MHZ PC) makes it very easy to recycle older PCs which would otherwise be hard to maintain now that Windows XP is no longer supported.
Linutop OS includes Linutop Kiosk which allows to configure the homepage in fullscreen without a navigation toolbar if needed and control the navigation through blacklists and whitelists.
The integrity of these systems is guaranteed by using Linutop Lock which can prevent the system from any alterations, whether by virus or user manipulation. This feature is key to avoid incurring ongoing maintenance costs that run typically quite high for computers in public space A demo version of Linutop OS demo, available for download, will allow each and every user to experiment with “Linutop Kiosk”.

Its energy efficiency and small size as well as its low noise level makes Linutop an interesting solution for this kind of use. This is an illustration of many possibilities for Linutop solutions (home automation, cameras, etc.)
