Recommended computer devices for displaying Geckoboard on a TV

Connect a device that can run our kiosk app to your screen to upkeep your TV dashboards with minimal effort

Updated over a week ago

TV dashboards are a key functionality of Geckoboard. Displaying dashboards on a TV requires a combination of the following:

  1. A large screen

  2. A computer device

This article covers our recommendations for the latter: computer devices.

Geckoboard dashboards can be paired and displayed on various devices.

As a rule of thumb, any computer that can run the latest version of Chrome or Firefox can also power a large screen to display dashboards.

We recommend devices that can run one of our kiosk-mode apps for additional convenience. This will ensure that as soon as the device is powered on, it automatically loads your dashboard in full screen.

Windows hardware

We have a kiosk app for Windows. Below are its minimum requirements:

  • Windows 10 / 11, 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Dual-core processor or higher (preferably quad-core processor or higher)

  • 32 GB of storage or higher (preferably 64 GB or higher)

Raspberry Pi

Our kiosk app supports any Raspberry Pi that runs the latest Raspberry Pi OS (64-bit) version. However, we only recommend the Pi 4 Model B and Pi 5 (for the Pi 4 Model B, we recommend a minimum of 4GB of RAM).

Weโ€™ve tested up to Bookworm, the latest version as of March 2024.

For extra convenience, you can connect the device running our kiosk app to a Smart Plug. That way, you can switch the device and TV off and on remotely.
