Unique Blend of Building Blocks for State-of-the-Art Digital Signage Systems
SAPPHIRE Technology Ltd., a leading manufacturer and global supplier of innovative IT and professional AV products, today announced that several solutions from its comprehensive line of interoperable hardware, AV signal distribution, and digital signage software products—including player PCs, extenders, advanced splitters, and video wall player components—will drive single- and multi-display dynamic signage demonstrations at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2013, Stand 8-N227.
“SAPPHIRE looks forward to exhibiting at ISE 2013, an event dedicated to Pro AV integration and technological innovation,” said Adrian Thompson, VP of Marketing, SAPPHIRE Technology Ltd. “Our Pro AV product line offers all the right product types to create almost any digital signage system, whether single-screen or eye-catching video wall.”
The SAPPHIRE family of EDGE HD- and VS-Series player PCs includes an assortment of feature-rich, compact designs built on the AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) technology—delivering significant energy savings without sacrificing performance. Featuring support for multiple Full HD outputs, wired and wireless networking, integrated audio, as well as Barebones models enabling custom configurations and differentiation, SAPPHIRE player PCs are ideally suited for driving compelling content at a competitive price.
SAPPHIRE PowerCastXTM digital signage software is a powerful and flexible solution for creating attractive, multi-zone/multi-display dynamic signage systems. Expressly designed to leverage AMD EyefinityTM, SAPPHIRE PowerCastX features a contemporary user interface and delivers exceptional performance of high-resolution content in dedicated zones across a single display—or an extensive grid of displays—from a local player PC.
SAPPHIRE PowerScaleTM HDMI over CATx transmitter (TX)/receiver (RX) extender kits feature wall-mountable, small form factor enclosures, HDCP compliance and 3D support. The SAPPHIRE PowerScale EX100 enables HDMI source control at resolutions of up to Full HD 1080p, via bi-directional IR pass-through and full Duplex RS-232, Power over Ethernet (PoE), auto equalization, and 7.1 channel digital audio at up to 330ft (100m).
Also on display, in conjunction with a mini-ITX SAPPHIRE graphics card- and motherboard-based player PC, will be the versatile SAPPHIRE Vid-2X splitter/expander – an external device that not only provides the ability to duplicate content from a single player onto two screens, but to double the amount of content shown. With it, two Full HD monitors can be connected to a compatible graphics port—dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt or miniDP—to multiply the number of outputs available for the preferred configuration.
