Preparing for NAB is always fun and this year in Las Vegas is no exception.
This year we have 3 stacked monitors on the booth that appear as one contiguous monitor so our sales engineers have had to some extra preparation to get the booth demo ready.
The kit involved is:
- Raspberry Pi 3Running Screenly OSE
- This is bonded to a Wifi hotspot on a Gemini PDA
For testing we used a normal TV turned to portrait mode ( the monitors are being rented at NAB).
The Gemini enables access the web page, provides the ability to upload new videos, and the ssh access to the pi (it is also needed to enable ssh on the pi. Also we altered /boot/config.txt for the monitor (monitordisplay_hdmi_rotate = 3)
The actual kit fits into a small box:
And here is a video of the end-to-end presentation in action with all of the kit.
If you are attending NAB in Las Vegas be sure to come over and say hello. The Storage Made Easy team will be on Booth #SL10830.by
