SAPPHIRE Technology Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of professional IT and AV products, showcased several solutions from its comprehensive line of interoperable hardware, AV signal distribution and digital signage software products — including player PCs, extenders, advanced splitters and video wall player components — driving single- and multidisplay dynamic signage demonstrations at Integrated Systems Europe 2013 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
"SAPPHIRE looks forward to exhibiting at ISE 2013, an event dedicated to Ppro AV integration and technological innovation," said Adrian Thompson, VP of marketing for SAPPHIRE, before the show began. "Our Pro AV product line offers all the right product types to create almost any digital signage system, whether single-screen or eye-catching video wall."
The SAPPHIRE family of EDGE HD- and VS-Series player PCs includes an assortment of feature-rich, compact designs built on the AMD Accelerated Processing Unit technology — delivering significant energy savings without sacrificing performance. SAPPHIRE player PCs feature support for multiple full-HD outputs, wired and wireless networking and integrated audio. Additionally, bare-bones models enable custom configurations and differentiation, the company said.
SAPPHIRE PowerCastX digital signage software enables the creation of attractive, multizone/multidisplay dynamic signage systems. Expressly designed to leverage AMD Eyefinity, SAPPHIRE PowerCastX features a contemporary user interface and performance of high-resolution content in dedicated zones across a single display or an extensive grid of displays from a local player PC.
SAPPHIRE PowerScale HDMI over CATx transmitter (TX)/receiver (RX) extender kits feature wall-mountable, small form factor enclosures, HDCP compliance and 3D support. The SAPPHIRE PowerScale EX100 enables HDMI source control at resolutions of up to full-HD 1080p, via bi-directional IR pass-through and full Duplex RS-232, power over ethernet, auto equalization, and 7.1 channel digital audio at up to 330 feet (100m).
Also on display, in conjunction with a mini-ITX SAPPHIRE graphics card- and motherboard-based player PC, will be the versatile SAPPHIRE Vid-2X splitter/expander — an external device that not only provides the ability to duplicate content from a single player onto two screens, but also doubles the amount of content shown. With it, two full-HD monitors can be connected to a compatible graphics port — dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt or miniDP — to multiply the number of outputs available for the preferred configuration.
