Use in a museum?
« on: November 05, 2009, 10:48:09 am »
I've been asked to setup a medium-size museum in Italy. The request is for some 'terminals' (kiosks) that will offer on-demand video and interactive content; of course the content will change with the exhibits; possibly they will have touchscreens.
The question is: anybody ever used LinuxMCE to be used as a 'kiosk'? Is there some project out there involving LinuxMCE to be used inside museum exhibitions?
Thanks everybody in advance for your attention!

I have not heard of this being used in a museum before.  From my experience I believe that LinuxMCE could be adapted to the environment, but would require some work.

We have looked at this type of idea for a couple of customers... in each case the projects did not go ahead (through funding changes and not through any technical limitation I might add). So I believe that you could build such a system if there was a requirement to do so.

All the best
