IAdea Releasing Seven New Digital Signage Devices
January 22, 2013 by Dave Haynes
IAdea has added to its list of appliances tuned to the needs of digital signage projects, with seven new devices that bake in emerging capabilities like HTML5.
The Taiwanese company (a Sixteen:Nine sponsor) has released the new devices to sync up with appearances at Integrated Systems Europe at the end of the month and Digital Signage Expo in about a month.
The new models, says IAdea, are optimized for displaying up-to-date information at the point-of-wait and point-of-decision. They are effective tools for delivering dynamic content at the shelf-edge and counter-top. They can be as easily mounted behind screens to display up-to-date and viewer-targeted information. Typical applications include shelf-edge product promotion, electronic menu boards, conference room door signs, reception area hospitality signage, and the display of real-time business analytics on executive desks.
Three new 10-inch digital signboards incorporate advanced functions for digital signage projects, especially targeting the retail and corporate vertical markets. The XDS-1060 and XDS-1062 are easily mounted on the retail shelf or simply sit on the table-top using the included multi-purpose stand. Replaceable front bezel allows the device to be customized to fit the design theme of the deployment environment. Motion sensor and a set of 6 touch-sensitive buttons enable rich interaction and deep engagement with the viewer. The XDS-1062 further incorporates its unique “Power-over-Ethernet” (PoE) technology to receive power over the network cable, greatly simplifying installation and maintenance work at locations where power outlets are expensive to set up. The XDS-1068 features a 10-point multi-touch panel and embedded video camera, as well as enhanced display resolution and view angle, providing a robust tool for delivering targeted and personalized content.
Three new media players and the world’s first OPS (Open Pluggable Spec)-compliant player supporting the Android API are available for use with larger screens. The XMP-2200, XMP-2300 and XMP-2400 offer a network managed media player platform, differentiated by their support for wireless connectivity options, A/V-in video overlay and RS-232 control. The XOP-2300 is a fan-less module for displays with the OPS player slot, offering a low-power alternative platform for the form factor defined by Intel.
“These new devices incorporate our years of experience in the digital signage market. Our goal is to provide a wide range of hardware options to meet real project requirements, while maintaining the best interoperability with content management solutions,” said Rex Chen, Executive Vice President of IAdea. “We are excited that we are joined by industry leaders like Scala who share our vision and work with us to form a strong ecosystem to address market needs.”
IAdea will have its gear at the Scala stand at ISE 2013 (Hall 10 – Stand N129). The software has been integrated with IAdea devices.
The new gear is available starting in February.
