Advantech bases all-in-one signage on Intel 8 th Gen Core
Advantech’s DS-200 design is based on the Intel Smart Display Module (SDM) specification and is powered by 8th Gen Intel Core processors. DS-200 measures 175 x 100 x 20mm and delivers 4K UHD output and smooth content streaming via a card edge connector at 45W. DS-200 allows slot-in integration that reduces space requirements and lowers deployment and field maintenance costs, says Advantech. It also features built-in I/O such as HDMI, mini DP++, USB 3.1, and a single LAN (RJ-45). The module enables media playback and display and its size makes it practical for all-in-one signage applications with space constraints.
The DS-200 is the first modular digital signage model developed with Intel. Stephen Huang, associate vice president of Advantech Embedded IoT Group said: “We hope to combine high display computing capabilities and integrated display modules to deliver a new age of digital signage experiences in visual IoT applications, as well as empower multiple vertical markets such as retail, medical and more”, added Stephen.
Digital signage relies on the ability to provide fast, multi-functional, scalable interconnections between devices and the cloud to meet rapidly changing application requirements. According to Jose Avalos, vice president of IoT Visual Retail Group, Intel Corporation: “Intel Smart Display Module Large (Intel SDM-L) with Intel Core vPro processors enables Advantech to provide the technology in a compact and optimised form factor to meet the fundamental design and implementation needs of new digital signage solutions to enable the next generation of digital signage solutions to deliver rich interactive, productive and memorable experiences.”
