Rise Vision Player can be installed on a wide range of devices spanning many operating systems and hardware types. Although most of the functionality of Rise Vision is the same across devices, a few features are only available on certain devices or operating systems.
Below is a quick reference table of devices we commonly see used for digital signage to help you decide. Clicking on an entry will take you to a brief description and a suggestion for where to purchase.
Rise Vision Media Player
The Rise Vision Media Player is a high-performance digital signage media player built for education and commercial use. It is available only from Rise Vision as a Hardware as a Service (HaaS) subscription.
The Rise Vision Media Player reduces your hardware costs and makes it simple to purchase your digital signage software and hardware in one place. The media player is completely managed and supported by Rise Vision, so you can focus on the message you're communicating, not the technology to deliver it.
Where to purchase: From us or a participating hardware partner.

Android and Android TV devices running Android versions 7.1 - 13 are great for easy digital signage. Given the flexibility of the Android platform, there are many types of devices available from dedicated media players to interactive flat panels. You can use a Mobile Device Management tool to easily manage your devices from one app.
Where to purchase: Amazon.com has many options.
NUCs are small computers manufactured by Intel which are a great middle-of-the-range media player for digital signage. They're capable of running most content smoothly and support most of our features at a reasonable price point.
The Airtame 2 is a small but mighty device built for way more than just digital signage. Our friends at Airtame help transform all your screens into collaborative workspaces with easy wireless screen sharing, conferencing, and remote management. Their builtin Rise Vision integration supports all our features and can even be set up to display emergency messages from your CAP provider at any time.

Fire TV Stick 4K MAX
It's hard to argue with the value offered by the Fire TV Stick 4K MAX. It's a great low-maintenance, entry-level option for trying out digital signage at a very low startup cost.

NUCs are small computers manufactured by Intel which are great for digital signage. The i3 processor is much more powerful than the Celeron NUC, and is better suited to things like video walls and 4K content.
If your organization already uses Chrome Device Management, Chromeboxes are a great way to easily set up and maintain digital signage. You can use Google's admin tools to easily enrol and set up a large network of displays. Just note that you need Chrome Device Management to install Rise Vision Player on them.
Where to purchase: The Book PC
The Raspberry Pi 4 model B is small, low-cost and adaptable. It's generally suitable for simple digital signage, though it doesn't handle video as smoothly as other options listed here. The Pi uses a relatively low amount of power and supports HDMI-CEC out of the box, so it's a good pick if being green is your top priority.

Apple TV's great picture quality and processing power make it great for digital signage. Our Apple TV app is in active development, so not all features are currently supported, but they are being added at a steady pace. Currently images and videos can both be shown with Rise Vision and look great!
