Navori Adds New Android Digital Signage Player To Product Line
January 28, 2014 by Dave Haynes
The Swiss software firm Navori, which has been developing in the digital signage space for more than a decade, has updated the Android offer it first introduced around this time last year.
The QL StiX 3400 is an Android player that’s about the size of a deck of playing cards, but has the bits inside to play out full 1080HD video. The device has an ARM Cortex A9 Dual Core 1.5 Ghz chipset, has 8 GB of onboard storage and a Micro SD slot to extend storage to 32GB.
Navori’s product release also says:
The QL StiX 3400 is fully HDMI-CEC compatible – allowing the user to remotely control on-site hardware and run diagnostics which can easily triple the life span of the hardware. This command and control protocol is currently available under various brand names on both consumer and professional display devices from major vendors. This technology supersedes the RS-232 protocol which is more complex to manage and requires extra cabling to deliver similar functionality.
QL StiX 3400 drastically reduces installation and operational costs due to its extremely low power consumption and foolproof, plug-and-play installation. With its industrial design, the QL StiX has an extremely high MTBF rating yet it remains extremely affordable. It’s also important to note the NAVORI QL platform uses the least amount of bandwidth of any competing solution.
Like the remote management via HDMI, which means no need for a serial port and another cable.
The company is showing the new unit next week at ISE in Amsterdam, Hall 8, Stand 8K225
