ARM Caster HD Digital Signage Player



The ARM Caster HD digital signage player requires a SaaS or server in order to run a digital signage network. SaaS is hosted on a cloud, allowing for you to access your digital signage network via the Internet. SaaS allows for centralized management from one location. A server, however, is both a hardware and software solution with the same management functions as SaaS. Servers are crucial for corporations that rely on security and carry sensitive information. In addition, using a server is ideal if Internet connection and downloads are internal and communication is local via an on-premise based solution.

The ARM Caster HD powered by Raspberry Pi 3 is an exceptional solution for those who want to run a small-scale digital signage network without having to pay a high price. This mini form-factor player is packed with cutting-edge components allowing for full-fledged functionality and a hassle free setup process. The ARM Caster HD, powered by Raspberry 3, has up to 10 times the performance as its predecessor the Raspberry Pi 1. This unit runs with a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad cord ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, allowing for fast connection and powerful computing performance.
