IBASE Technology, a manufacturer of digital signage platforms, and digital signage provider Scala have announced a partnership to deliver embedded digital signage solutions that enhance hardware and software integration capabilities for system integrators.
According to the two companies, the solutions enable high-performance 3D visualized graphics running under independent VGA graphic memory to secure stability of the processors to run on Scala. Signage vendors can easily perform thorough, heavy loading graphic-processing requests based on IBASE digital signage platforms, drastically reducing testing time and complexity.
Compatible with Scala, the IBASE SI-28 Signature Book 2, a professional-grade digital signage system, packs extreme performance within ultra-compact dimensions. The SI-28 supports four independent HDMI outputs at up to 1080p display resolutions. Combined with an AMD Athlon X2 (dual-core) or X4 (quad-core) CPU, its ATI E4690 GPU is equipped with 320 stream processor cores and 512 MB of GDDR3 video memory. The comprehensive I/O set also includes four USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports, analog audio and an integrated Gigabit LAN interface.
Scala also is compatible with the IBASE SI-24SD digital signage system. The SI-24SD combines the graphics performance of a discrete ATI E2400 GPU with 128 MB of dedicated GDDR3 video memory and the efficient computing resources of an AMD Athlon-based 1.5 GHz Neo X2 dual-core embedded CPU. It is able to support dual 1080p independent displays with VGA, DVI or HDMI interfaces.
