Chrome media players are a popular hardware option for school and business digital signage systems. They’re well made, secure, and reasonably priced. And the best part? Rise Vision digital signage software works seamlessly with Chrome media players.
Chrome media players offer numerous benefits to digital signage users. Most notably, Chrome media players deliver trouble-free digital signage without interruption or security issues. Let’s go over some of these benefits in detail.
Having a secure digital signage system is a very important requirement for businesses and schools. Vulnerable digital signage systems can result in digital vandalism and extreme cases can cause physical harm to people in a facility (e.g. false alarms, false emergencies, etc.).
Chrome media players can be locked down by IT staff and digital signage administrators. This feature prevents hackers and vandals from plugging directly into displays or media players and taking over signage campaigns. Chrome media players also provide an excellent barrier from remote digital signage hacks.
Most Chrome media players are made with quality hardware components that are designed to work with Google’s Chrome operating system. Digital signage systems require high-quality components that can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. When you choose Chrome media players, this high-endurance requirement is satisfied out of the box.
It’s often the case that do-it-yourself digital signage users will try to build a media player from spare computer parts. We strongly don’t recommend going this route. Digital signage media players are designed and manufactured based on specifications that they will experience continuous use and require a high level of endurance.
Chrome media players have been on the market for nearly ten years now. High-end Chrome media players can still be upwards of $1,000, but most new Chrome media players are a few hundred dollars.
There’s also a sizable used market that makes Chrome media players a very affordable option. We recommend purchasing used Chrome media players from reputable dealers that have inspected and tested the units prior to sale.
This is an important issue for many digital signage users. If not properly configured, a Windows-powered digital signage system can end signage campaigns during Windows updates. It’s possible to have a Windows media player run continuous digital signage campaigns. However, an experienced digital signage technician should be involved in the media player installation process to ensure the Windows-powered media players run interruption-free.
Chrome media players rarely run into interruption issues with OS updates or other system interruptions. That’s why Chrome media players are a good choice for schools or organizations that don’t have dedicated IT staff on-site.
