Ubuntu Linux powered
Each of our Media Player can be pre loaded with Linux Ubuntu 9.04.
Linux is historically known as being very stable and highly flexible.
Our mediaBOX Players were compiled with a very light weight window manager called black box.
The OS is also modulated to support all of the devices which may be optionally included with our mediaBOX Media Players including USB OS restore system, capture card support and more.
Ubuntu was designed for peripheral integration such as Digital Signage and Kiosks. The OS is stripped down of all the unnecessary overhead that is normally included with Ubuntu OS. The OS is ultra light, fast and very reliable.
Some of the advantages include:
- Ubuntu is free and can be freely distributed
- Ubuntu is open source so you may always modify it any way you like
- Full support for Kiosk by removal of standard Taskbar and panels
- Disable of the Adobe AIR auto update features
- Remove all unneeded daemons and rc.d startup TSRs
- Smallest foot print of about for the complete OS
- Compiled with special drivers to support optional hardware
- Fully customizable for white labeling (powered by Splashy)
- Auto recover from disk corruption (fstab optimized)
