Advantech Showcases Latest Digital Signage Offerings

Leading global ePlatform services provider, Advantech, showcased the latest additions to its digital signage product portfolio at the Kiosk/Digital Signage Europe exhibition in Essen, Germany at the beginning of May. The reliable, stable, and highly scalable products operate 24×7, and are delivered at a lower “total cost of ownership”. Advantech is positioned as the “solution enabler” within the digital signage ecosystem and demonstrates both signage platforms and management software solutions – with support from an array of strategic partners – for customers looking for turn-key solutions.

Open Platforms
Advantech’s digital signage platforms are based on open-platform architecture. The DSA-3000 series platform has passed compatibility testing with a variety of leading digital signage application software vendors. As a member of POPAI (Point of Purchase Advertising International), Advantech also participates in defining the “Server Intercommunications Standard.” Additionally, Advantech will launch a new RISC-based platform, DSA-2130, using the W3C defined, XML-based SMIL language.

High Performance and Cost-effective Platform
Advantech will launch two of its new x86-based digital signage platforms at the Kiosk/Digital Signage Europe exhibition: DSA-3020 and DSA-3520. Both platforms demonstrate low price to high performance ratios with outstanding high-definition video playback. DSA-3020 is an innovative model jointly developed with Intel. It is based on the latest Intel Poulsbo XL chipset under its ATOM platform. Unlike other ATOM-based signage platforms currently available in the market, DSA-3020 is fanless, with low power consumption, and is equipped with a fine-tuned video codec and driver to boost performance, supporting high definition video up to 1080i. The second platform, Advantech’s DSA-3520, is an AMD-690E-based platform. Its built-in ATI graphics allows DSA-3520 to support full HD video up to 1080p as well as support dual-display configuration.   

Advantech products are designed and manufactured using industrial-grade components for reliability and long-term support. Advantech players are designed for 24/7 operation and come with a standard 2-year warranty that is extendable up to 5 years. These world-class hardware solutions are backed by local product support teams to ensure a smooth successful roll-out of customers’ digital signage networks implementations.

With a comprehensive showcase of products that are compatible with leading digital signage software applications, Advantech’s presence at this year’s show illustrates the company’s continued strategic commitment as a trusted platform provider of digital signage network solutions.
