I discovered Rise Vision a few days ago and have connected a display to a Raspberry Pi 3 to try it out. So far, I prefer the RV UI over other signage platforms I've been evaluating.
The performance of the Pi is not stellar for video, but it's acceptable on a 1080p display with a presentation having 3 placeholders (two of which are showing video). The main issues I've encountered are:
* Problem re-establishing a wireless connection if power is interrupted.
* Pi displaying the thermometer temperature warning over the content.
Would a Compute Stick offer an advantage in either of these areas? How well does it perform with video?
Some of my anticipated deployments would be remote, so robustness is critical. I realize I can address the second issue with a good heatsink and a fan, but I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile if a better option already exists.
Also, is it possible to install the RV Player on a Compute Stick purchased elsewhere?
