Digital Signage – Seattle Department Of Transportation

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.

Linutop OS demo available below, allows you to create very easily a Digital Signage solution thanks to “Linutop Kiosk” software.

Customer Case Study – Vitrilia

Linutop in Orpi agency

Vitrilia, a digital display total solutions provider, specializes in display services to real estate agencies.  The company looked for a small, robust, and energy-efficient computer which would obtain the latest real estate information via an internet connection to display at each real estate agency branch.

It was also important that the computer be low maintenance because technical interventions at each branch location would have been costly.  Finally, Vitrilia wanted a small size computer that would be easy to ship as well as discrete.

After considering a number of options, Vitrilia selected Linutop 2 because it is small, robust, low maintenance, and energy-efficient.  Also, Vitrilia realized that in the long run, the Linutop would be cost efficient because it is built for high security with a re-set feature that eliminated the need for on-site technical intervention.

Another differentiating factor with Linutop was that the initial set-up settings could be easily replicated across Linutops using a USB key, making deployment across multiple units easy.

Today, nearly 1000 Linutop 2 are used in many real estate agencies as part of Vitrilia’s service offering.  With Vitrilia’s service, powered by Linutop, real estate agencies such as Orpi can display up-to-date, tailored real estate ads in a dynamic fashion with maximum security, low energy consumption, and low maintenance.

At last, a cost-effective solution was found!
