NEC Display Solutions Europe has announced some fresh innovation with the launch of its new digital signage devices for media playback and IT operations.
The company is launching a series of Slot-in PCs based on NEC’s Open Modular intelligence (OMi), the platform that enables connections between source and display, to deliver tailored digital signage.
NEC says the OPS Slot-in PC is an embedded computer that supports a wide variety of uses, from static content playback to the most demanding, interactive and high-resolution applications.
These include everything from retail and digital-out-of-home (DooH) advertising to food and beverage menu boards, transportation wayfinding and information screens to digital cinema posters.
The Slot-in devices are based on the seventh and most recent generation of Intel Core processor technology including Core i3, Core i5 and the most powerful Core i7 processors, and have been created to simplify device installation, usage and maintenance while making it easier to upgrade digital signage equipment.
The variety of interchangeable Slot-in products alongside customisation options enable solutions that are matched to individual demands and also remove the need for external sources.
Ulf Greiner, senior product manager solutions at NEC Display Solutions Europe, says, “This updated product range significantly widens our product portfolio of computing devices for media playback and IT operations. In addition to our Raspberry Pi and Android-based OPS computers, NEC is now refreshing our broad Intel based computing line-up, comprising every performance level to meet with every customer’s individual needs and budget.”
Two more additions
Alongside the OPS Slot-in PCs with Core processors, NEC is launching two additional products: the OPS value Slot-in PC featuring a Quad Core Intel Atom processor, and an External Micro PC option which features a similar processor, but is designed to support standalone operation where displays don’t feature an OPS-slot, or when multiple displays rely on a single playout system.
NEC is offering its European software partners and prospective customers a one-month, free-of-charge trial period for all the new OMi products. More info direct from the company.
