Using the Raspberry Pi for a multimedia center on your boat


The Raspberry Pi proved an ideal extension to the electronics that were already on board the boat (Figure 4). It is possible to play back a program from terrestrial broadcasting on the television and also watch high-resolution films when using something like the Matroschka format. Those who want to listen to music can plug a USB stick containing the desired files into a Raspberry Pi and sit back and listen. The Grundig TV has a surprisingly good audio tone in spite of its small size.
