YCD Multimedia, a global provider of smart digital media solutions, is set to introduce its new MegaPixel embedded playback devices based on Intel Core processors at this year's Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The MegaPixel devices are designed for ultra-high resolution content and above, according to YCD. The Intel-based devices are powered by the YCD|Wall video wall solution that projects synchronized visual content onto any number of screens. Intel Core processors integrate the graphics right into the processor's package.
The MegaPixel Player Devices are very small in size and include two or three video ports, with each port producing higher resolution than full HD, YCD said. Together, the video ports produce ultra-high resolution and above, and there is no need to install additional video cards.
The combination of YCD's player and Intel hardware enables video playback that meets advanced video compression standards such as H.264, while enabling advanced management of ultra-high resolution content. Combining several devices in a synchronized manner creates an unlimited megapixel playback canvas.
"The new and extremely powerful playback devices are an important milestone in the digital signage industry, addressing the growing demand for megapixel video playback. We plan to use these products to support many of the advanced video formats available," YCD CTO Dani Zeevi said in an announcement. "Currently, many implementations are done using multiple displays, but we are starting to see growing interest in using the new generation native ultra-high (4K) digital screens. With YCD's architecture, several devices like this can work together in a fully synchronized way and support unlimited megapixel screen resolution."
