NEC Display Solutions Europe today announced the launch of its new digital signage devices for media playback and IT operations including a series of new Slot-in PCs based on NEC’s Open Modular intelligence (OMi), the platform that enables smart and seamless connections between source and display, to deliver powerful, tailored and future-proof digital signage.
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 — and much, much more.
The new Slot-in devices are based on the seventh and most recent generation of Intel Core processor technology including CoreTM i3, CoreTM i5 and even the most powerful CoreTM i7 processors, and simplify device installation, usage and maintenance while making it easier to upgrade digital signage equipment. The variety of interchangeable Slot-in products alongside high levels of customization options enable custom-made solutions that are perfectly matched to individual demands.
Alongside the OPS Slot-in PCs with Core processors, NEC Display Solutions is launching two additional products: the OPS value Slot-in PC featuring a Quad Core Intel Atom processor. Meanwhile, the External Micro PC features a similar processor to the Entry version, 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.
The three new devices complement NEC Display Solutions’ existing portfolio of Raspberry Pi- and Android-based OPS computers, and will bring more intelligent and dynamic signage to a wide range of industries and applications.
Here are all the tech specs.
