    Multimedia station or (kiosk)

    Hi people
    I'm doing some research, but I just can find the "key"
    We need to make some kind of device (computer with a small case, and big LCD) that can show in the screen:

    - videos
    - weather
    - news by rss
    - ads

    It is like those things you can see at airports, transportation, etc.

    1. I thought of making something web based, then start browser in full screen
    2. I thought of making something in Delphi, but would take lot more time
    3. I thought about flash, with some actionscripting...

    My questions would be...

    Do you know something already done and available for doing this? (no matter which lang.)

    Which is your opinion and/or which lang./technology do you think will be the best for developing such system?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    There is (or at least was, not sure about current status) a display in Heathrow airport done with SWF Studio and other customers have built store-front, mall and restaurant kiosks with SWF Studio.

    Any projector tool will work (see list below) if the public isn't going to have access to the keyboard, otherwise you want something with good support for what we call kiosk mode. Just one checkbox (#2 in the image in the previous link) in SWF Studio disables the dangerous keys that might give the user access to the system.

    Hi NorthCode
    Thanks for the suggestion

    Does NorthCode requires ActionScript programming knowledge?
    Does it support all the features I wrote before?

    Thanks again, I'll check the website now

    Anything you can do in Flash will work in SWF Studio. After you publish your FLA to a SWF you use SWF Studio to turn that SWF into an EXE (instead of letting Flash do that for you). In the SWF Studio UI you can do a pile of stuff with No ActionScript Required. Kiosk mode is one of those things you can enable with a single checkbox.
