AOPEN, a provider of digital signage and appliance computing for enterprises, recently announced its latest digital signage media player, the Digital Engine DE6100. The DE6100 is aimed at deployers "that demand the most advanced multimedia and computational workloads," the company said.
The small system enables multidisplay capabilities for advanced digital signage applications, according to AOPEN.
The DE6100 comes equipped with an AMD Embedded R-series accelerated processing unit dual/quad core, allowing users increased versatility in creating and displaying content on their signage network.
Some of the key features of this processing unit include:
Support for both Spanning (stretched desktop) and Extended Desktop on all connected screens using Eyefinity technology for up to three independent (full-HD) displays.
A secure asset management unit that allows for GPU-assisted encryption/decryption of content, enabling less CPU overhead and lower power.
Enhancements to the unified video decoder that extend the capabilities of the AMD Embedded R-Series APU platform to include high-definition decoding with dual output and stereoscopic 3D.
Support for ultra HD resolution (4k) through DisplayPort.
Organizations will be able to feed content to three separate displays, allowing them to either create three different video feeds or a single video feed distributed across a three-panel display or three independent displays, the company said. The player kit includes additional graphics port splitters.
According to AOPEN, the DE6100 has been designed for use in rigorous environments. It features the full suite of industry standard options: two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort, two HDMI ports, 12V support, Gigabit LAN and RS232 port.
