“We are thrilled to be exhibiting in the Scala booth, where we have the opportunity to show attendees how effortlessly SAPPHIRE player PCs drive Scala software,” said Adrian Thompson, VP of Marketing, SAPPHIRE Technology Ltd. “One of the hallmarks of SAPPHIRE’s Pro AV product line is how well it complements other products and solutions, and this is the ultimate show of interoperability.”

The EDGE VS-series of player PCs also includes the VS4 – an A4 1.9GHz dual-core alternative with 4Gb of DDR3 So-DIMM memory and a 320Gb SATA 2.5-inch hard drive.

Measuring less than 8 inches in length, EDGE VS-series player PCs are easy to install almost anywhere, including to the back of a wall using a standard VESA mounts. Moreover, their quality construction makes them capable of withstanding rough handling and less than ideal operating conditions.
