Utilizing the power of Chrome OS, in a machine the size of a flash drive with a touchscreen monitor, puts the web at your customers’ fingertips (and yours), literally!

As CTL’s newest product, the 2-in-1 Chromebit can help grow your business or organization with an easy and affordable solution.

What You Get with the CTL 2-in-1 Chromebit Touchscreen

This month we’ve launched the IP2154T. Its 22” IPS panel touchscreen monitor is perfect for digital signage for your kiosk or store. The monitor has a responsive touch and beautiful clear 1920×1080 resolution, wide 89-degree viewing angles, high transmittance, and low-operating voltages. These high-quality displays are ideal for photographers, graphic designers, business use, and home entertainment. Each unit is backed by a CTL® 3-Year Warranty.

You can buy this monitor on its own here: http://ctl.net/displays/22-28-inch/ctl-22-touch-screen-monitor

With this bundle, you also get the ASUS Chromebit CS10. Measuring just under 5 inches, it is the world’s smallest Chrome OS device. The Chromebit plugs directly into your HDMI port and transforms your monitor into the latest Chrome OS device.

The Chromebit combined with the touchscreen monitor allows you the ability to have an accessory-free Chrome station without a mouse or keyboard. However, you still have the option to run a keyboard and mouse with a USB dongle should you want one.

If you’d prefer to go the more standard keyboard and mouse route, you can always opt for the Chromebit 2-in-1 with the standard CTL 22” IPS monitor with the keyboard and mouse included. Another option for digital signage with more memory and a longer warranty is to go with the Chromebox 2-in1 touch or standard monitor bundle which gives you more storage and memory.

Talk to a CTL sales rep today to see about these and other great business solutions for your business, office, or organization.

The Asus Chromebit is one of the world’s smallest computers. Yes, I said it’s a computer! This device is as small as a memory stick, but within it packs the power and punch of the Chrome operating system. The possibilities are endless for this portable little device that plugs directly into any HDMI compatible monitor or TV, instantly creating a full browsing experience with all the G Suite apps and tools you’ve grown to love and depend on. However, the best part about the Chromebit may just be the price point! Priced at less than $90, the Asus Chromebit is something deserving of a second glance.

Why choose Chromebit over other similar devices?

The Chromebit runs on Chome OS which allows you to do anything you can do on a Chromebook or Chromebox: manage your Gmail, access and edit your Google Drive, surf the internet on Chrome browser, or utilize any of the other G Suite apps. You can also watch your favorite shows in high resolution using any of your video subscription services, YouTube videos, and even unsupported browser pages which is some thing you can’t easily do with streaming media sticks. That’s because it’s a computer and not just a streaming media player. Another great feature of the Chromebit is the ability to access your files on another system via the Chrome Remote Desktop. Using this feature, you can always have access to important presentations, images, or videos on another device.

The Chromebit contains a Rockchip RK3288 QuadCore Cortex processor, 16GB of SSD storage, a USB 2.0 port, and an HDMI plug. It has Bluetooth 4.0 so you can easily connect your wireless accessories to it. The device also includes 100GB of free Google Drive storage for 2 years and is always up-to-date Chrome OS.

Chromebit is the missing link in your marketing department

Chromebits havebecome especially popular for use in kiosks and businesses for its ability to serve as beautiful, multi-media based digital signage. Using Chromebit to manage this task can save you money and time when compared with printing signs for your business. The great thing about digital signs is they can be easily updated whenever you want. Now, that is something your printed signs can’t do!

Don’t take our word for it. Dan Ackerman, Section Manager for CNET reviews the Asus Chromebit in the video below:

With this powerful duo, your customers have the ability to signup for newsletters, browse and order from your site online, or perform a variety of the many other uses of this device.
