Instant WebKiosk

Instant WebKiosk is a suite of free and refined “live” (no installation required) browser-only (only the browser interface will show up) operating systems based on Linux Debian and designed for use in web kiosks, multi-user “web workstations” (cafès, offices, schools, hotels) and digital signage deployments.

Instant WebKiosk/UB, Unrestricted Browsing is designed for web kiosks and multi-user web workstations: it is a fully customizable operating system for Internet browsing purposes, which protects privacy; users can change its settings but after a reset the operating system defaults to original values (except for persistent settings: network, localization and sound configurations persist across reboots) and users' informations are completely destroyed. Closing browser window also resets system - in a less secure but quicker manner.

It makes use of Google Chromium as default Internet browser and it features audio support, video files support, Adobe Flash support, PDF and images viewing, office files and compressed files support; it features full “i18n” (internationalization) including CJ input methods.

Instant WebKiosk/UB supports printing (plug&print for most common USB printers - network printers need to be manually set) and both wired (with DHCP or static IP) and wireless networks in order to access the Internet. Network parameters, as well as any other system configuration, can be set using an user-friendly web interface.

Instant WebKiosk/EDS, Easy Digital Signage is designed for digital signage installations on (even diskless) PCs; it displays a full-screen view with locked navigation, restricted to the page specified. There is no way to stop it or escape this view but rebooting the machine. After the reset, the operating system defaults to original values except for persistent settings: network, i18n, sound and digital-signage related configurations persist across reboots.

It features full HTML5 support (Firefox), Adobe Flash support and a very useful on-screen virtual keyboard for touch devices. Instant WebKiosk/EDS supports both wired (with DHCP or static IP) and wireless networks in order to access the Internet. Network parameters, as well as any other system configuration, can be set using an user-friendly web interface.
