Cutting-edge technologies from SAPPHIRE include an extensive range of multi-display graphics cards, feature-rich motherboards and small form factor PCs.
“Digital Signage is a growing market for SAPPHIRE and we wanted to recognize this by providing guidance and support to our expanding customer base,” says Adrian Thompson, VP of Marketing, SAPPHIRE Technology Ltd. “Given the convergence of IT and AV in recent years, SAPPHIRE is uniquely positioned to present digital signage integrators a portfolio of complementary products, backed by dedicated product specialists.”
SAPPHIRE offers a wide variety of building blocks for digital signage installations—from single-screen to video walls. The company’s expertise in graphics now spans over a decade. SAPPHIRE has pioneered innovative graphics solutions including low profile cards, totally silent fanless models and high performance cards with efficient low noise coolers. A variety of output configurations are supported, including native support for up to five screens, and further expandable. The SAPPHIRE motherboard series includes fully featured micro-ITX and full ATX boards with support for both Intel and AMD processors, including the latest APU technology from AMD with on-board DX10 graphics.
Within the SAPPHIRE portfolio, products ideally suited to the digital signage market include low profile graphics cards with multiple outputs and high quality cooling, and fully featured small form factor ITX motherboards with integrated DX10 graphics and PCIe expansion. The recently announced SAPPHIRE Edge HD3 small form factor PC is an elegant and capable player, and features E450 APU technology to deliver an impressive feature set that includes support for dual Full HD outputs and wireless connectivity. The SAPPHIRE Pro AV team is available to guide digital signage integrators to the products that best match the technical requirements and characteristics of a specific project.
“In addition to offering a broad selection of technologies, SAPPHIRE has been supporting the specialized requirements of our integrator base for quite some time,” Thompson says. “For example, in response to customer requests, SAPPHIRE now offers a special BIOS for our mini-PC that adds support for boot-on-power-up; boot-after-power->fail; wake-on-LAN; and power-on-at-specific-time. This is an illustration of our expertise and commitment to this industry.”
The new SAPPHIRE Pro AV Web section provides quick access to products best suited for digital signage applications, and highlights how they may be combined to create innovative, cost-effective solutions. At the same time, it is the portal through which Pro AV integrators may consult with SAPPHIRE Pro AV sales and support consultants to discuss project needs and product capabilities.
