Putting a Dashboard or Look on a TV , Raspberry Pi, Airtame, Display, Broadcast

You can only put a dashboard on a TV if the streaming service you use will allow you to log in to Looker. This isn't possible with a Raspberry Pi or Airtame since they only take a web address and don't let you navigate or use any input.

The options here are public look or SSO embed.

As of Looker 6.24, content can be made public but restricted by IP address - so a public look could be made accessible to the Raspberry Pi's IP address and prohibited for all others.
If you are using SSO embed, you can also just have the raspberry Pi web server generate an SSO Url with a particular embed user configuration and you can display a dashboard. 

You may want to refresh the Looker content you want to display on the TV screen periodically (dashboard refresh?). It's recommended that the Raspberry Pi device generate a new SSO URl periodically as well, perhaps daily.
