Display an infoboard on a touchscreen or TV

Devices

Information screens can be displayed on almost any device that can run a modern web browser, like an iPad, computer or laptop in a common space or a touch-capable smart board.

Keep in mind that a constant and reliable internet connection is required, either wired or wireless.

Tablet, laptop or computer

Using the information screens on an existing tablet or computer is the easiest and cheapest way of presenting the information. Open the web browser and go to the unique view-only link for the specific screen. You can find this link by clicking the button labelled "Display" under the "Info screens" tab.

Logging in is not required to view the link's contents.

TV (non-interactive)

Using a standard television screen is another relatively cheap option. You can also enable automatic cycling, in case the information requires multiple displays.

To use a TV for the information screens, you will need

  • A working TV, any relatively recent model with an HDMI port.
  • Computer stick (such as the Intel Compute Stick, starting at € 150,-)
  • A keyboard with USB plug.
  • A wireless internet connection.

Nearly any TV screen can be used to display info screens, including existing ones on site.

Follow the instructions to set up your computer stick. When you're done, use your favorite browser to go to the view-only link on the compute stick. Your TV is now set up.

Smartboard / Touchscreen (interactive)

RoutineFactory's information screens can also be used on devices equipped with touchscreen for an additional interactive element.

Clients can change the info screen that's currently visible by tapping one of the tabs, located at the top of the screen.

This implementation may be a little more expensive than the approaches described above.

There are a number of different options when choosing an interactive info screen:

  • Asus EeeTop, compact and affordable all-in-one, starting around €550,- (learn more)
  • Seperate touchscherm + computer, starting around €800,- (e.g. iiyama t2735msc)
  • All-in-one touch computer, ranging from €500,- to €1000,-, (zie bijvoorbeeld all-in-one pc)
  • DigiBoards, starting at €1400,-

Choosing a supplier

Many suppliers offer digiboards, wall-mounted touchscreen-TVs and on-site installation.

There are a great number of suppliers available due to the fact that the info screens work on almost any device with a modern web browser.
