Finding a playout solution for our chapels
on Feb 12, 2016 at 5:24:19 am

Hi,

First time posting to this forum, I hope this is in the right category (wasn't sure where else to ask it).

I work for a funeral home and we are updating our AV equipment. I am trying to find a good, easy and yet affordable solution for allow our staff to play the music (MP3) and MP4 slideshow during the service.

I am looking at setting up a single Windows i7 box which is connected to 2 monitors, they are:

  • Display 1 - a touch screen that the staff will control everything by

  • Display 2 - The main TV screen in the chapel


  • I'm looking for some software that can run on the touch screen, where the playlist (music and video) can be loaded in and the team can play the files by a simple press of the touch screen.

    It should so simple, but I haven't been able to find any software that does the job.. VLC would work, but it shows OSD on the TV and the controls are not really designed for a touch screen.

    I've done very similar things using simple Power Point (just with Mouse, not touch screen). So, that's something I'd check out...

    I'd be very interested in if this works, if not, what else has been tried...

    I'll look further into this too, when I have a few minutes and remember...

    You may want to consider hiring an AV integrator.

    You could make this happen with:

    - a projector with HDMI input
    - an iPad
    - Google Chromecast
