The increasing popularity of online shopping has spurred physical retailers to take advantages of new technologies to build a better shopping experience. In the future, shop front advertising will be tailored to each customer and display the merchandise that best meets their need. Digital signage will no longer be a one-way message delivery mechanism, but interact with consumers through touch controls. Consumers will not need to waste time to browse through the store or asking shop assistants. Before merchants can embrace this all-new shopping experience however, they will need an ultra-thin all-in-one digital signage.
Many customers and vendors are now using LCD TV as digital signage, but a proper digital signage requires specific design features. For example, the internal circuitry and substrate must be built to industrial specifications and designed for use in locations that required extended playback. The long service life and product stability makes them better suited to public spaces than standard LCDs.
Wincomm has now released the WMS-42 PLUS3 All In One 42″ LCD touch control digital signage. The product is based on the advanced Intel Core i platform architecture and is compatible with i3, i5 and i7 CPUs. The 1920×1080 HD resolution and option of upgrading to high-end graphic cards will allow multimedia content creators to present their work through Wincomm’s WMS-42 PLUS3 with no compromise. In addition, the WMS-42 PLUS3 is also equipped with network connectivity (i.e., for internet connection via 3G / WIFI card). The WMS-42 PLUS3 has also inherited Wincomm’s worldwide reputation for quality and reliability among system integrators for applications such as showroom floors, ballrooms, large conference rooms, large lobbies, 3D applications etc.
Summary of Wincomm WMS-PLUS3 Key features as follows:
1. All-in-One modular system design with removable chassis for ease of maintenance
Wincomm’s modular design sets its product apart from the many digital signage products on the market. The modular design of the motherboard and graphics card means the user can easily slide the module out for maintenance and upgrade. The All-in-One design also saves space, simplifies interior design and can be used with any operating system. For the user, this translates into convenient installation and maintenance.
2. High scalability
WMS-42 PLUS3 has interfaces reserved for user upgrades with PCI-Ex16 graphics cards, PCI-Ex4 TV cards, USB, Mini PCI-E and WiFi abgn. Available HDD options include 160G or 250G while memory can be configured as 1G, 2G or 4G. The highly flexible specifications means the user can upgrade the system to meet new requirements.
3. Remote Control
WMS-42 PLUS3 supports remote control commands and the user can develop their own customized remote control software. Using the remote control software, software system vendors can control and regularly update the content of digital signage installed in different locations from a central control center.
4. Smart Fan Design for Reduced Noise
Smart design increases fan speed as the temperature rises. The improved ventilation and cooling design of Wincomm’s WMS-42 PLUS3 keeps fan noise below 38db at room temperatures (25℃) so it not only keeps the system temperature under control but also keeps the noise within a certain range as well.
5. Full HD Quality and LED Backlight Module for Better Picture Quality
LCD panel with LED backlight module dramatically reduces the thickness of the WMS-42 PLUS3, prolongs the lifecycle of the LCD and slows the deterioration of LCD brightness over time. The two-point multi-touch screen is not convenient to use but also improves energy efficiency.
