Comprehensive Digital Signage Solutions Made Easy

Over the past few years, we have heard a common problem from school districts. As school buildings seem to have an increasing number of TV screens in hallways, common areas, and other places in the building, Administrators, Tech Coordinators, and Media Specialists all needed an easy way to publish and update media on these monitors efficiently.

MyVRSpot offers two different solutions for school districts looking for an affordable digital sign solution. The first option is focused on utilizing Raspberry Pi devices, which can connect to any monitor via HDMI. The second option is our web-based Chrome version, which can display media on your monitor(s) via a Google Chrome extension.

Raspberry Pi-Based Solution

Our Raspberry Pi digital signage solution integrates directly with the MyVRSpot system, where all identified media will be saved locally on the Pi memory card. This process will then run the media locally without utilizing the district bandwidth and is a great solution at an affordable price. Each monitor will need a Raspberry Pi unit connected via HDMI and will need an internet connection for content updates. These Pi units are inexpensive to purchase, though many districts already have them, and this is a great way to repurpose them using today’s newer technology. We have compiled a buyers guide for these items as well as a checklist below.

  • Media runs off the local Pi memory card

  • Display videos, images, and URL links

  • Integrate with our Live Broadcasting service

  • Schedule items to appear immediately or at a later date/time

  • Multiple modes for quickly changing between media libraries
