Digital signage players need the power of Ubuntu

With a small footprint and serious power, Ubuntu Core reduces hardware costs while still running 4k video. A low cost, open source solution, it builds from its heritage on fun88体育s to bring a secure and stable platform, designed for 24/7 availability and resistant to screen takeovers and other attacks.

  • Atomic upgradability: low bandwidth, prompt delivery of new features
  • Software development: existing libraries and codebase, flexibility in development, all the way down to the device driver
  • Remote maintenance: no need for on-site personnel
  • Application isolation enables security, robustness and simpler maintenance
  • Faster innovation: wide peripheral support, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, NFC, Bluetooth, software-defined radio, deep learning, audio and camera support (including RealSense)

Simplified software management

Ubuntu Core gives your screens the uptime and robustness you need. Uniquely stable and secure, it is based on the same operating system that runs the majority of the world's clouds.

Ubuntu Core adds the ability to upgrade the entire software stack remotely and securely, from the kernel all the way up to the apps. Canary rollout and rollback capability gives you peace of mind during upgrades: if anything goes wrong, the device automatically reverts to the last working release. With update management facilities to manage roll-out as you wish, Ubuntu Core is the ultimate digital signage OS.

Partners and players

The Ubuntu Core app store makes it easy for systems integrators and device makers to find solutions, while enabling OEMs to generate revenues from their devices over the entire lifetime of their products.
