Setting It Up

 

Chromebook

A portable Chrome OS laptop that is designed for mobile usage. This is ideal for digital signage on the go, such as in a conference or a trade show.

 

Chromebase

An all-in-one Chrome OS device that is ideal for interactive tasks. A wide range of devices are built in this form factor, from the AOPEN Chromebase which is waterproof with a tamper-proof cable and mounting, to the large Acer Chromebase 24I2 and 24V2 desktops which are ideal for business and retail usage.

 

Chromebox

A small Chrome OS device that can support up to 4k resolution at 30hz for the lower end model, and 60hz for the advanced model.

 

Note: Performance may vary depending on hardware specifications. We recommend using a device with Intel 3865U Celeron Processor, 4GB Ram, and Intel HD Graphics 610 at the minimum for standard performance.
