Samsung is showcasing its latest commercial display solutions here at the 2014 Digital Signage Expo (DSE), including an 85-inch UHD (4K resolution) display, ultra-narrow bezel video wall solutions and a new range featuring the next-generation Samsung Smart Signage platform.
Samsung is also announcing the introduction of its new D Series commercial displays, featuring an enhanced system-on-a-chip that now provides support for more advanced applications including touch and video wall configurations — all without the need for an external media player or PC. Built around a Quad Core processor, the next-generation Smart Signage Platform also adds an SD slot for flexible memory expansion as well as built-in Wi-Fi as a standard feature for many models.
By eliminating the need for an external media player, the Samsung Smart Signage Platform simplifies the deployment of digital signage networks, which Samsung says provides organizations an easier, more cost-effective approach to delivering dynamic messaging to their audience. Compared with traditional configurations using external media players or PCs, Samsung claims the Smart Signage Platform reduces the total cost of ownership by up to 40 percent over three years for small- and medium-sized digital signage networks.
In addition to the next-generation Smart Signage Platform system-on-a-chip, the new Samsung D Series commercial displays also introduce a flexible new design approach featuring replaceable bezels in a variety of colors that enable users to customize signage to match any environment. To provide solutions suited for any project, the D Series models are tiered in three product lines: the DB Series, an entry-level lineup providing access to Smart Signage Platform capabilities; the DM Series, the broadest product line, rated for 24/7 operation; the DH Series, the premium lineup offering 700nit brightness. As well as eliminating cables, built-in Wi-Fi on DM and DH Series models enables easy mobile integration including mirroring on content to the display.
