Use of Chromebox and Chromebit

The Chrome-devices that give new life to old screens

Do you have an old screen or tv that is not being used? You can use it as a public screen! Or do you have an old public screen that needs to be renewed? Chromebox and Chromebit are good solutions to prolong the life of old screens. It is both cheap and environmentally friendly!

Choose between Chromebox and Chromebit

Is it mainly news, text and information you want to display, or do you want to display many images and YouTube-videos? Chromebit is small and cheap, but it has a somewhat smaller capacity than Chromebox, - other than that their uses are quite similar. If you plan to use YouTube-posts on the screen, we recommend Chromebox for a more stabile display.

Automatic start and daily restart with PinToMind Player

Installation of PinToMind Player allows Chrome-devices to automatically start display of the PinToMind public screen when they are turned on, and gives them a daily restart.

The alternative is to manually log in and open the browser in fullscreen each time the chrome device is started.

To use the PinToMind Player with automatic start and daily restart, the chrome device must have a license from Google and must be a part of a so called Chrome device management.

We have set up a system for purchase of licenses from Google, so that you don't have to do this. We manage purchase of licenses and charge in the same way as for a subscription. The price per device is 24 EURO per year. The subscription keeps running, until you end the license. Paid amounts will not be paid back even if the license ends.

You can also manage chrome devices and licenses yourself - see information further down on this page.

Paid amounts will not be paid back even if the license ends.
