The term “digital signage” never seemed quite right. Even as the industry used the phrase and we all understood what it meant, people always debated if there was a better way to describe the true potential. Of course, there are certainly times where electronic displays replace billboards or other public signage. But as we’ve so often discussed, it’s more than “signage”, it’s a digital communication platform. As interactive displays fill our homes, cars, workplaces, and even our wardrobes, the digital signage ecosystem becomes even more relevant. With that in mind, let’s look at some developments in displays, players, signal distribution and software.
AOPEN Digital Signage Players
AOPEN recently announced its new lineup of Digital Engine media players for commercial and enterprise solutions. The company says these Digital Engine media players are designed to deliver innovative three-, four- or six-screen solutions for QSR (quick-service restaurant) menu boards, video walls, digital advertisements and traffic/information displays. The DE6340 second-generation 4-port digital signage player is the successor to the DE6140. The new player works with fourpanel video walls and UHD menu boards. It’s AOPEN’s first AMD Ryzen embedded processor-based digital signage player with four 4K 60 Hz outputs and HDR support. This continues AOPEN’s use of AMD products to power their digital signage solutions with 4K, rich content and other new technologies. AOPEN’s DE6200 featuring AMD RX-421 embedded SoC steps up to solve the general lack of triple digital output solutions; it can deliver 4K promotional videos alongside static information like menus and service information. The DEV7610-X6 features an AMD E8860 GPU with six Mini DisplayPorts for multi-screen video wall solutions aimed at premium and corporate locations or critical operations such as control rooms. It features an aluminum front panel.
