Hello there,


I wanted to introduce myself, my company, my major client and the work
we are doing in Web signage in a major deployment in the city of
London and elsewhere, such as Singapore.

My background is technical and I've been involved in Linux and Web
communities for some time: http://hendry.iki.fi/cv/resume.html

Webconverger is a kiosk OS project & company I founded 5 years ago,
which has about 5000 deployments and we recently become involved in
Web signage with the product "Neon".
http://neon.webconverger.com/ We are currently based on Firefox 10.

Looking at http://www.html5.jp/Web-based-Signage/Scenarios-and-Use-Cases/#terminology
I guess we fall under "terminal", but we do *not* do hardware. We
support PC hardware currently, but we do not build the hardware
solution, we supply the operating system software deployed by USB
stick typically.

Our main Web signage client http://renewsolution.com/ designs &
deploys the hardware and purely Web (HTML5) based content, that runs
on Neon.
Renew would be the service provider+location owner (leaser), and
responsible for the hardware, RE #terminology. Perhaps this can be
better defined.

There are quite a few details going into Web signage that we don't
mind sharing, in order to push Web signage along.
Network (fail) considerations, hardware considerations, terminal
identification, screen brightness, updates, stability, default CSS
(black bg), caching, end to end security (preventing E-vandalism) to
think of a few.

I realise many participants are Japanese here, and unfortunately we
don't have out of the box support for Japanese enabled atm, though we
are working on it for our next major release. Almost all our work is
opensource, except some our server side management components and
tools.


Kind regards,
