At Digital Signage Expo, VIA brought its S3 Graphics Chrome 5400E x2, a dual GPU add-in-board aimed at advanced, multi-display digital signage applications..

Able to accelerate the latest HD video codecs, it uses PanoChrome technology to provide up to four independent HD video streams at resolutions of 1080p on up to 8 displays, employing various display modes and configurations.

VIA also demonstrated its growing range of board and system-level digital signage products, like VIA VB8003, the first Mini-ITX board to feature a dedicated graphics processor and support for dual HDMI, DVI and VGA ports.

And the durable VIA VIPRO panel series, a comprehensive range of features in an industrial-grade LCD panel.

Or the VIA vmpc…a fanless, ultra-thin system featuring an industry-first: a thru-chassis VESA mounting design that can turn any standard display into a digital signage device in moments.

VIA Technologies says their single chip VIA VX900 media system processor "…represents the most complete solution for HD digital content consumption on the market today." In other words, you put the VIA VX900 in your systems to bring a smoother 1080p HD video without those annoying shakes.

NEC Media Player Allows Easy Content Creation and Display

  • PDF

NEC Display Solutions presents its Media Player, a “well-priced combination of hardware and software” for digital signage applications.

The user-friendly software enables users of all levels to easily create content for public displays (and this is especially suitable for small to medium-sized companies without their own AV professionals, such as shops, travel agencies, restaurants or doctors' surgeries.)

The hardware--available either as an external or an internal device--generates video data with a resolution of up to 1,920 x 1,080 (full HD). As an external player, it supports all public displays, projectors and desktop displays that have a DVI input. The internal device avoids additional cable connections and is compatible with selected NEC monitors featuring an Option Slot. A DVI output enables it to provide content for a second monitor simultaneously. Both the internal and the external player operate without fans or other moving parts.

The user can feed the created content to the media player via a USB interface, or--when operated in a network--up to 20 Media Players can be combined and controlled from a single PC.
