iBase Releases Rugged, Stretched Panel PCs For Digital Signage On Buses, Railcars
July 23, 2018 by Dave Haynes
Someone will likely correct me, but this is the first time I at least remembering seeing one of those skinny, stretched LCDs with a full PC embedded inside – in this case for mass transport systems.
The Taiwan industrial PC maker iBase has a new all-in-one 27.6-inch “railway-certified” bar-type panel PC, powered by a Pentium N4200 Quad Core processor and Intel HD Graphics.
The units are aimed primarily at passenger information systems for trains and buses, and are EN50155-compliant, a standard based on being able to run happily despite all the vibration and bumps a train car or bus will have day-in and out.
These bar-type displays, as they grown to be called, are not new to the market, but I don’t recall seeing ones with PCs or SoCs built in. But could easily be wrong here.
