LAS VEGAS – Lenovo, a global leader in technology and innovation, unveiled its latest breakthrough in digital signage technology during the Digital Signage Experience (DSE) in Las Vegas today. The Lenovo Chromebox Micro, a cutting-edge media player, promises to redefine digital display solutions with its ultra-thin design, high performance, and enhanced security features.
Signs Point Towards Growth
The global digital signage market, valued at nearly USD 25 billion in 2022, is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8 percent from 2023 to 2030. The surge in demand is fueled by innovations in consumer experiences across various industries, including retail, hospitality, healthcare, education, and enterprise.
In response to this burgeoning market, Lenovo introduces the Chromebox Micro, a purpose-built solution designed to meet the needs of designers, marketers, and infrastructure builders seeking cost-effective, secure, and easily deployable signage and display solutions.
Small Form Factor, Big Advantages
The Lenovo Chromebox Micro is an ultra-thin, lightweight media player specifically crafted for 24/7 digital display deployments in high-traffic facilities. Its fanless, ventless, dust-proof ChromeOS compute solution supports dual displays at 4K resolutions, making it suitable for a variety of applications. With dimensions smaller than most smartphones, it is a versatile fit for nearly any kiosk or signage solution.
This innovation boasts USB-C, USB-A, and HDMI ports, along with screw holes for easy mounting. Lenovo has collaborated with Instorescreen to offer 15.6” and 21.5” inFLEX displays specially designed for the Chromebox Micro, providing a streamlined and integrated appearance with superior cable management.
Designed for Scale
The Chromebox Micro is designed for easy remote management with ChromeOS Kiosk and Digital Signage Upgrade. It allows customers to set up and manage a fleet of kiosk devices effortlessly. Additionally, the device leverages ChromeOS zero-touch enrollment for the accelerated deployment of pre-provisioned devices, ensuring simplicity and security.
Marc Godin, Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Smart Devices Solutions Group at Lenovo, expressed his excitement about the Lenovo Chromebox Micro, stating, “The device can help transform any business by offering unparalleled visual experiences in a small but powerful solution that’s easy to deploy.”
Bryan Lee, VP of ChromeOS and Education at Google, also commended the innovation, saying, “The Lenovo Chromebox Micro is the most compact, affordable Chromebox yet, purpose-built from the inside out for kiosk, digital signage, and shared workstations.”
