From the same series, ARK-DS520 features a rich combination of video output interfaces for dual display, is highly expandable via the internal Mini PCIe interface and has a  low-profile design for easy installation. On the high end side, the ARK-762 combines high processing and graphics performance (Intel® 3rd Gen Core i) with rich I/O and extra flexibility via optional expansion modules. The ARK-DS762 can support 3 x HDMI independent displays, and supports Microsoft® Kinect™ technology.

At Advantech’s stand during ISE 2013, NDS has demonstrated its PADS software compatibility with the ARK-DS520 and ARK-DS762 as restaurant and transportation signage applications. This seamless integration can be applicable in various industries such as retail, corporate, education and more.
