Dashboards on TV without computer

Hello Everyone. I was wondering how I can show / broadcast a dashboard on a TV without a computer..

Currently we are using a device called Airtame to view the published link on our tv, This solution is working great. However the players can be costly, especially with multiple locations. The only fee is the player itself.

I have also tried to use the web browsers on smart TVs and a firestick. However we had a problem with the browsers resolution. We could not change the resolution on the browser to show the dashboard correctly.

I recently researched cloud base digital signage apps that can be used on firesticks and other media players. However there is a monthly fee.

Any ideas or solutions is appreciated. Thank you.

  • we implemented tiny chromebooks (minimal specifications) that are mounted in the back of the TV's and they work perfect.

    Wireless so no need for wires

    So small factor that is out of reach

    No need for keyboard and mouse once implemented

    I hope this help,

    Regards

    Hi @BD,

    I use Raspberry Pis (https://www.raspberrypi.org/) to display dashboards on TVs. They are very cheep and easy to update.

    If a Pi is going to be used as a dashboard, I set it up in Kiosk mode (https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-kiosk/) and load in the dashboard(s) URLs.
