The planning of the here shown Mediaplayer Box began in February 2014. Raspberry Pi B was presented at this time in a lot of professional articles, where different fields of applications were listed. One of these was the application for mediacenter with XBMC (today KODI). The idea, to administrate the lot of films, was planned for a long time and so were different ideas and procedures tested.
The more hardware was used or was connected, the more the cable clutter at the TV grows. With the development of OpenDisplayCase in April 2014 for another project, the hole scheduled hardware was implemented into a compact casing incl. data storage and wire. The wire for HDMI, electricity and network can be laid down bundled left/ right.
Due to the modular design, individual components can be easily exchanged. For example, the Raspberry Pi has been replaced by the current version.
