STRATACACHE, a leading provider of scalable, high-performance digital signage, content distribution and enterprise video acceleration technologies, today announced the launch of its new energy efficient media player—the SPECTRA S-200 Series 2.
The newest edition to STRATACACHE’s line of SPECTRA media players, the S-200 Series 2 is one of the smallest, most power-efficient Intel AtomTM based media players on the market. Utilizing a mere 8-10 watts of power, businesses looking to “green” their digital signage networks can anticipate an 80 percent reduction in energy consumption when compared to other media devices on the market.
By transitioning to the new S-200 Series 2, one STRATACACHE retail customer with an 11,000+ digital signage network experienced energy savings of over $4 million annually.
“Most of our customers find that the SPECTRA S-200 Series 2 typically pays for itself in a few weeks in operational cost savings and improved sales of featured products,” said Chris Riegel, STRATACACHE CEO.
Within retail environments, the ROI for the S-200 Series 2 is directed by reduced energy costs, reduced print material costs, increased product sales and enhanced operational efficiencies.
Running on STRATACACHE’s ActiVia for Media software, the S-200 Series 2 has an intelligent display management feature—allowing the connected digital display to power down during retail “off hours”, then to turn back on 15 minutes prior to store opening. This smart control feature allows digital displays to drastically reduce their energy consumption, in addition to the direct energy consumption savings on the media player.
“As STRATACACHE continues to improve operational profitability for our customers, the S-200 Series 2 will save businesses several million dollars per year in operational store costs, thus improving overall sales results through digital media,” said Riegel.
