Is this free kiosk software from Netkiosk any good?
Well, you have to see for your self. A custom version of our previous imperi version was first successfully deployed at the December 2015 Spanish Elections on around 4000 Windows Tablets. Please watch the Video page for more information and to see Netkiosk imperi in action. Another unique custom Netkiosk version was used on the 7th of June 2018 at the Ontario Elections (Canada) on around 25000 devices. Netkiosk works just as well on just 1 PC.
As a result of our continued success we decided to offer a free kiosk software version of Netkiosk imperi as well as of Netkiosk Standard.
You can download both and use which ever one best suits your needs.
Or download both and use them on different Windows versions on different unit.
Netkiosk imperi will work best on Windows 10.
Netkiosk Standard can be used on Windows xp (sp3), Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. As well as Windows NT.
What can I do with Netkiosk imperi?
With Netkiosk imperi free kiosk software you can instantly lock down your PCs and run a secure Chromium powered kiosk browser in flexible tabbed kiosk browser mode, or full screen display kiosk mode. Netkiosk imperi has been specially designed to run Chromium in a secure kiosk mode. Via a secure admin panel you can restrict website access with a built-in white list filter. Although Chrome can run in kiosk mode by default it does not give you options to secure the settings or lock down your windows devices. This is where Netkiosk imperi will benefit you.

What about the video ads page inside Netkiosk imperi?
The videos we run inside the free Netkiosk versions are to promote countries or interesting locations you might like.
We found a cool video about The Netherlands that shows The Netherlands from a birds eye view.
We think it’s interesting and you might even want to visit the Netherlands on your next trip 😉 We did not get paid for this!
The next time we might show a bird eye video or another location in the world.
The video page is a simple html based webpage that runs inside the free Netkiosk every 15 minutes for 2 minutes.
The videos are static so users cannot click on them. They can only watch them.
Want to know what the html structure looks like? You can check it out here. https://netkiosk.co.uk/netkiosk.html
Any video we show is 100% safe, non intrusive, non political and non religious and 100% clean and impartial.
We think by showing countries and destinations it will be interesting viewing.
