Improving Consumer Media Systems with Litemax Digital Signage5 min read
Digital Signage is important across numerous aspects of advertising, and has the potential to become an immense and expanding market. According to studies done from Display Search, the Digital Signage CAGR is forecasted for a 24% annual rate. Since advertisers are looking to reach the maximum amount of customers, it is vital to find the most eye-catching displays possible.
In this paper, we will specify the values and advantages of digital signage systems. Moreover, we will focus on the Intel® Atom™ Processor N2000 and D2000 Series and its usage in the Litemax Lightbox II media system.
Suggestion #1: HD resolution guarantees unsurpassed image displays.
Digital signage is a network of customizable displays that can be modified by electronic means through a computer, which allows content to be changed remotely for the most targeted messaging possible. It is quickly becoming more popular, since it can be used for numerous markets, from enhancing customer experience to public information. Therefore, LED and LCD screens enrich the real-time information that can be quickly updated.
Since companies would prefer to display their advertising at its best: in this digital era, pictures often amount to more than just text. Thus, the benefits of digital signage images include:
- 3D and flash Animation
- Quick response for users to be connected
- HD resolution to bring the desired point across
The Intel Atom Processor N2000 and D2000 Series supports HD and a vivid media experience for HD decode, Blu-ray®, multi-display output and decode capabilities. Furthermore, this processor includes added display capabilities with support for HDMI, DisplayPort, LVDS and VGA. The Litemax Lightbox II is a digital signage system encompassing the Intel Atom Processor N2000 and D2000 Series, integrated Intel graphics and up to 4 GB of DDR3 memory. This combination is able to support full HD resolution to highlight messages at a low-powered state.
Suggestion #2: Innovative rod systems help save energy.
In numerous working environments, digital signage systems usually run for 24 hours a day. To save on high electricity bills, these media players should be cost-effective and protect against possible power mishaps.
Here, Litemax’s media player system is a terrific example of energy saving. Its configuration consists of a rod system where multiple screens can be placed either in a portrait or landscape format. In fact, all of the power is held within the 24-volt rods, which keeps the system low-powered and burn-free.
At the heart of Litemax’s digital signage system is the newest Intel Atom processor with striking graphics support. The Litemax Lightbox II is a slim, 23.5″ media player system that can be literally placed anywhere.
Suggestion #3: It takes two screens to tango.
Digital signage that can maintain multiple screens have more functions to fulfill. For instance, these displays can support a close-up shot and an overall shot. For in-flight entertainment, energy-saving and low-powered GENE-CV05 can provide up to two LCD screens for maximum efficiency and affordability.
The Intel Atom N2700 processor has the ability to transform your contents into a full HD movie or a slide show with background audio. The information is given remotely via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi through a USB port on the side of the slim bezel. With 2 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, Litemax found that they were able to utilize the two to the most of their abilities.
Suggestion #4: Flexibility is key.
Digital Signage can be utilized to its potential through flexibility in wallmount systems. For example, Litemax’s Lightbox II media player can be easily to set both landscape and portrait modes between two vertical rods. The easy setup of the rod system lets you mount multiple displays to show exceptional images.
This high end, fully modular digital signage system has slim LED backlights built into the frame. The graphic transparencies are highlighted by the high resolution LCD displays. The Lightbox II Viewer system has transparency prints which are placed behind clear Plexiglas screens. An efficient low-powered LED backlight design gives life to your desired messages. Since changing the transparency sheets is less than 30 seconds, the maintenance of the Lightbox is minimal.
Litemax decided to use GENE-CV05 for its Digital Signage needs because they had previously purchased AAEON’s subcompact boards. Since all GENE boards have the same previous mechanical design and back wall compatibility, Litemax was able to cut down time-to-market. GENE-CV05 embedded easily into their system as a 3.5″ compact board. Numerous I/O ports and onboard LVDS ensured that the subcompact board was flexible and beneficial. Furthermore, communication support is possible through the Mini card, as it is effortless to include an add-on module to support 3G for wireless communication. Up to 1920×1200 HD for CRT and DVI, Litemax preferred the high resolution products that AAEON had to offer. Thus, all of these wonderful features made the GENE-CV05 perfect for digital signage.
End users who are looking to use digital signage systems should follow the four suggestions made in this paper to best utilize the Litemax Lightbox II. This system has a minimal installation time, which means that no cables, brackets or expensive equipment is needed to set up this Digital Signage media system. It is exceptionally easy to update the content of the photos directly through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® or USB. Its modular system parts are available separately, thus the flexibility has a creative combination which can be mounted in horizontal or vertical modes with static and motion displays. Ultimately, improved technologies such as 32nm process technology and platform integration that uses fewer chips with the Intel Atom processor supports fast response to support digital signage systems.
