NEC Display Solutions Announces Collaboration with Raspberry Pi

raspberrypi-0916NEC Display Solutions Europe today announced that it will be sharing an open platform modular approach with Raspberry Pi, enabling a seamless integration of Raspberry Pi’s devices with NEC’s displays.

Originally developed to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries, the original Raspberry Pi delivered good performance at a very low cost. However, the latest Raspberry Pi 3 compute module boasts significant performance and networking capabilities, making it the perfect for NEC’s display.

With a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, the board is no longer just a basic computer for coding but a reliable intelligent device with unlimited possibilities. In addition to the standard Raspberry Pi 3 compute module, NEC will also offer a customized model to meet the specific performance demands of the display industry.

Being an incremental part of NEC’s Open Modular Intelligence (OMI) platform, the Raspberry Pi 3 embeds with NEC’s new range of P and V Series large format displays. The new displays allow easy access to embedded intelligence smartly connected to Internet of Things (IoT) for digital signage as well as presentation use.

NEC’s new series of intelligent large format displays with Raspberry Pi connectivity will be launched from January 2017 onwards. Here are the details.
