Airgoo Joins The ARM Race With Latest Android Digital Signage Offer
May 2, 2013 by Dave Haynes
The UK-based AV integrator and distributor Anders+Kern, or A+K, is an unusual new entry in the ARM race, announcing an ARM-based Android digital signage player and management system.
The A+K Airgoo is a micro-player stick that plugs into a display panel HDMI port and runs Android 4.0 on a 1GHz CPU. It has 4GB storage for media content, though some of that would be needed for the operating system, perhaps more than 25%.
The company says users can to add, manage, organise and upload multimedia content via a secure, cloud-based content management system. The CMS has a scheduling tool. The little thing has built-in WiFi and is powered though a USB port, kinda like a smartphone recharge.
A+K resells Net Display’s PADS digital signage platform, but I think this is an entirely different thing.
I think we re now over 30 Android digital signage offers, with no signs of slowing. The running list is here.
