Digital Signage Player Trilogy: Performance, Connectivity and Manageability


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — NEXCOM has rolled out 1080P digital signage player NDiS 167 in light of a booming demand for embedded intelligence. Performance, connectivity, and manageability are three important pillars of embedded intelligence. NDiS 167 lays great emphasis on these attributes. Based on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family and Mobile Intel® QM77 Express chipset, NDiS 167 is poised to inject new life into versatile multi-media applications.

Digital signage player NDiS 167 is built on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family integrated with Intel® HD Graphics 4000. With hardware-assisted acceleration for graphics and support for DirectX 11, NEXCOM has achieved significant progress in responsiveness and performance with NDiS 167. The digital signage player can depict great details of 3D images and play full HD multimedia content to meet ever-demanding market expectations. Better still, NDiS 167 with Mobile Intel® QM77 Express chipset can support up to three independent displays, enabling more desirable content manipulation.

“NEXCOM digital signage players have proven efficiency in performance, connectivity and manageability as compared to standalone posters. Nevertheless, NEXCOM players based on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family are poised to unleash an intelligent embedded world,” said Steve Wu, NEXCOM general manager of the Multi-Media Solutions business unit.

“The 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, which consolidates smart performance, built-in visuals, manageability, security, and versatility brings a new level of intelligence to digital signage players,” says Matt Langman, director of marketing, Intel Intelligent Systems Group. “These powerful capabilities are demonstrated through the Intel® platform’s support for robust anonymous video analytics (AVA), which is gaining popularity among retailers.”

Equipped with two GbE LAN ports, NDiS 167 can establish inbound network connection and reach out to the increasingly connected world simultaneously. Although the network connectivity allows NDiS 167 to receive timely content updates from a remote central management center, two USB 3.0 ports are also available for 5Gb/s data transmission in case of on-site maintenance. Additionally, two mini-PCIe expansion slots are provided for Wi-Fi communication and TV tuner.

Out-of-band management is another important feature of NDiS 167. The latest Intel® Active Management Technology 8.0 incorporated in the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family gives off-site IT administrators control over the player as early as the BIOS setting phase without the assistance of additional hardware.

Some of the main features of NDiS 167, 1) supports 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3/ i5 processor, 2) equipped with Mobile Intel® QM77 Express chipset, 3) embedded Intel® HD Graphics 4000, 4) supports DirectX 11, 5) compact and slim design, 6) supports 3 independent displays, 7) USB3.0 and dual GbE LAN ports, and 8) supports WLAN/ TV tuner.
