[Micronet] Prezi with Remote Desktop to Digital Signage TV?

Rene Viray
Hi All,
         We're thinking of using Prezi with an  Intel NUC (tiny
PC)   to feed content to Digital Signage TVs.
Windows 7 doesn't let you connect the "console" to the TV when using
Remote Desktop.
         Would like to tap into Micronnetters collective experience
regarding different "remote desktop" implementations out there
that allows the "console" to connect to the TV.  I've heard of
LogMeIn, TeamViewer, Bomgar (we have a campus license for this?)
Simplicity and reliability are always good requirements even if we
have to pay a "minimal" fee 8-)

Thanks.

I'm not sure what limitations Prezi adds, but one good (and free) remote
desktop app is the Chrome Remote Desktop.

You want to use Remote Desktop as one of the two 'screens' in what is
essentially a two screen (duplicate) setup?

Since Prezi is not really a digital signage tool, I guess the actual
screen does not really matter, it's the duplicate viewing that is important.

Re: [Micronet] Prezi with Remote Desktop to Digital Signage TV?

Drew Mason
We use Chrome Remote Desktop to access our signage PCs remotely.  The digital signage content is a Drupal page shown in Chrome browser in fullscreen mode.  This setup requires very little interaction with the signage PCs, since all they do is show a web page.  All the content management is done in the Drupal CMS, which also runs our website.  Drupal Views handles the scheduling logic (along with some javascript to refresh the page periodically).

Greetings

If you want something that is more flexible and can drive multiple screens over the network, you might try the open source Xibo (a server / client environment). Snap to set up and easy to schedule all kinds of content.  I used it very successfully at another univ.

You don't find this little rider in the Chrome Remote Desktop setup a
problem?

"By clicking Accept, you allow this app _and Google_ to use your
