Industry-Standard Modular System Pre-Validated for Intelligent Digital Signage
Page 1 of 1
A new open pluggable specification (OPS)-compliant modular solution is designed to make digital signage applications more connected, intelligent and secure, which results in devices that are easier to install, use and maintain. The KOPS800 from Kontron is based on the OPS specification created by Intel to help standardize the design and development of digital signage applications that use LCD, touch screens or projector display technologies. As an industry-standard system solution that can be docked into any OPS-compliant display, the KOPS800 simplifies development, reduces implementation costs and speeds time-to-market of a wide variety of enhanced functionality and graphics-intensive digital signage that help in delivering a rich user experience for information and retail systems that will be part of the retrofit of discrete legacy systems worldwide.
The Kontron KOPS800 is based on the Intel Core i7 processor architecture and the Intel 6 Series HM65 /QM67 chipset. It features a comprehensive range of externally accessible I/O including Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45, two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI connector and audio jack. The Kontron KOPS800 also supports OPS JAE interconnect I/O such as HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 2.0 and 3.0. For added security, it supports Intel vPro with Intel Active Management Technology and features 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity. It also offers up to 8 Gbyte of dual channel DDR3-1600 non-ECC system memory and 80 Gbyte mSATA HD integrated storage.
The system is pre-validated for use with a Microsoft Windows Embedded OS (such as WES7 Pro 64-bit) and Intel Audience Impression Metric (Intel AIM Suite) technology based on Anonymous Viewer Analytics (AVA) software. Digital signage systems employing the Kontron KOPS800 with the AIM Suite and running a content management system (CMS) can simultaneously play high-definition video while gathering valuable viewer demographics without invading their privacy to push custom-tailored messaging to the target audience, which results in delivering a rich, immersive user experience that can offer significant infrastructure cost savings.
