Raspberry PI 4
Raspberry PI 4 is a great starter player for digital signage. It comes in at a reasonable $100 price point and comes with good performance for the price. With 8GB RAM, it is perfect for playlists that have video-heavy content or anything that needs more memory like embedded websites. However, on the downside, it runs with Linux which gives it poor driver support making it difficult to perform well with animations, transitions, and tickers.
What does the manufacturer say about their Raspberry PI 4?
You’ll recognize the price along with the basic shape and size, so you can simply drop your new Raspberry Pi into your old projects for an upgrade; and as always, we’ve kept all our software backward-compatible, so what you create on it will work on any older models you own too.
The fanless, energy-efficient Raspberry Pi runs silently and uses far less power than other computers. It comes with Gigabit Ethernet, along with onboard wireless networking and Bluetooth. We’re making different variants of the Raspberry available, depending on how much RAM you need — 2GB, 4GB, or 8GB. It has upgraded USB capacity: along with two USB 2 ports, you’ll find two USB 3 ports, which can transfer data up to ten times faster.
The speed and performance of the new Raspberry Pi 4 are a step up from earlier models. For the first time, we’ve built a complete desktop experience. Whether you’re editing documents, browsing the web with a bunch of tabs open, juggling spreadsheets, or drafting a presentation, you’ll find the experience smooth and very recognizable — but on a smaller, more energy-efficient, and much more cost-effective machine.
