Intel® Skylake Based Open-pluggable-specification Compliant Media Player Helps to Deploy 4K Ultra HD Digital Signage

  • (1888PressRelease) June 09, 2017 - Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) is a standard developed by Intel® in order to standardize electrical, mechanical and thermal design between any OPS-complaint digital signage media player and display. That allows digital signage system integrators / network operators to faster deploy systems in higher volumes at lower cost. In addition, the interchangeable modular and cableless plug-in design also simplifies the device installation, usage, maintenance and upgrade by simply plugging or replacing a pluggable player, instead of an entire display unit as well as a web of complicated cables.

    Quanmax OPS-2002 and OPS-2050 Series, two new models of OPS-compliant digital signage players, are exactly the products to satisfy this segment of digital signage business. But more than that, they offer full for 4K Ultra HD content playback in processing / graphics performance, memory transfer rate and display refresh rate.

    First of all, a powerful enough processing and graphics chip is the most essential factor to drive 4K Ultra HD video playback. Both players are powered by 6th Generation Intel® Skylake Core™ i processors with higher-performance GPU integrated inside, more than capable of handling 4K resolution.

    In addition, the data transfer speed should be considered as well since insufficient bandwidth may result in video lag and discount the effect delivered to the audience. It would be better if the player is equipped with the next-generation data transfer interfaces. For example, DDR4 memory sockets can provide more bandwidth to data-heavy 4K content to eliminate laggy playback in comparison with DDR3. And HDMI 2.0 video output interface can deliver 4K video output at a smooth fast 60 frames per second. The rate of 4K is limited to 24 frames per second in HDMI 1.4.

    The three features mentioned above (powerful CPU / GPU, high-speed memory interface and high-speed display interface) can create more lifelike viewing experience to grab customers' attention and help drive sales effortlessly.

    Finally, remote management is another critical issue especially for large-scale area-wide digital signage deployment, for example, within a mall, a chain, a corporate, a city, a country or even multiple countries. That allows administrators to create, schedule and publish the contents or maintain, repair and update the software from a remote location, which can reduce the need for costly human on-site support. Thus, besides GbE LAN ports for wired network, the players should flexibly reserve mPCIe and/or M.2 slots for Wi-Fi / 3G / 4G wireless networking connection. Users can optionally choose an appropriate wireless communication module depending on local network infrastructure to make their players connected.
