Video kiosk
Mystic sells a demo video DVD for their spray booths. I was wondering if anyone has a good idea on how to set this up for customers to watch?

It would be nice if it was some sort of self-serve kiosk or something simple to start the video. Thoughts?

I could use a PC to do it, but I'm looking for something that is push-button start and is a close system that doesn't allow access to the OS in general.

Basically, a decent canned solution. I don't mind installing something like KDE Kiosk or something, but I don't want it to be a lot to manage. I just want it to work.

We have a 17" lcd tv that has a built in dvd player in our Mystic room. The dvd continually plays on it's own or you can manually start it each time someone new is going to spray.

Do you know the manufacturer of that LCD?

I used to have a LCD in there also, but over they years it gets gunked up something firece. I decided to buy a portable 7" screen DVD player that they can sit in the lobby and watch the vid if they choose.

Thank you for the input! I ultimately decided on an HP DreamScreen. It has 2GB built in memory, so I can copy a decent resolution version of the Mystic demo onto it, and still have room for a few upsell advertisements on the screen saver slideshow. Very slick!

We set up a Flat screen/DVD in the lobby that plays continuously. It gets walkins for UV's and outside "people waiting in their cars". Excellent advertising tool!
