NEXCOM's fanless digital signage player, the NDiS B533 features the 4th generation Intel Core processor family ("Haswell"), and offers improved computing, graphic performance as well as enhanced security in a reliable design.

NDiS B533

"The fourth generation Intel Core processor family offers numerous processor and graphic enhancements with integrated technologies," says Sam Cravatta, Product Line Manager, Intel Intelligent Systems Group. "For example, Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 accelerates integer and floating point computations to meet increasingly complex application demands such as anonymous video analytics. New graphics capabilities also enable full hardware-accelerated video decoding to allow stereoscopic 3D visuals and faster video streaming." 

Adding the support for multiple displays, the NDiS B533 comes with three HDMI interfaces.

In addition, the NDiS B533 incorporates its fanless design in an aluminum cover and uses the latest Intel AES-NI in the 4th generation Intel Core processor family to protect signage content from tampering. The new instructions and enhancements in the Intel AES-NI allows the NDiS B533 hardware to encrypt or decrypt both local and streaming contents without taxing the processor resources, safeguarding signage content.

The NDiS B533 digital signage player supports the 4th generation Intel Core i7-4770TE and i5-4570TE processors and Intel Q87 chipset. Its fanless design supports up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, VESA/wall mounting, three independent displays with HDMI interface and network connections including LAN, Wi-Fi, and 3.5G or LTE. USB 3.0 interfaces and Mini-PCIe slots are also available for custom function and peripheral expansion.

$2.3 Billion a Year Wasted. That’s a lot of DOOH.

  • PDF

CCO

How do you quantify wasted opportunity?

Digital out-of-home advertisers lose up to $2.3 billion a year because their campaigns fail to use the unique features offered by the medium, according to a study from Clear Channel Outdoor.

Clear Channel Outdoor, a leader in digital out-of-home, operates some 4700 digital screens in 18 global markets. The company says 3 out of 4 campaigns run on digital screens do not use digital features and capabilities to their full potential-- and advertisers lose billions in potential revenue as a result.

Clear Channel Outdoor sampled activity across its global network of digital screens, calculating that just 1 in 4 campaigns were maximizing the benefits offered by digital technology. With the worldwide digital out-of-home sector valued (by Kinetic) at $3 billion, this equates to $2.3 billion worth of ‘digital asset wastage.’
