Black Box Brochure

Create, distribute, and manage digital signage content easily with iCOMPEL HD and  SD digital signage network appliances from Black Box. Ideal for both large organizations and small offices, iCOMPEL appliances work right out of the box with all software preinstalled— and no recurring licensing fees to deal with later. And software updates are always free.

Because the iCOMPEL units support many media formats, you can combine video or live TV with scrolling text, photos, Flash, and Web content. In addition to HTML and RSS media, they handle MPEG, AVI, Quicktime®, and PowerPoint ® media; JPEG, GIF, and TIFF images; and WAV and MP3 audio.

Install the iCOMPEL appliances on your network and manage them via a browser from any PC or Mac ® on a wide area network (WAN). One iCOMPEL unit used as a publisher can send media over the network to an iCOMPEL unit functioning as a subscriber — even on the other side of the world.

Scaling from a standalone installation to a multichannel network with hundreds of screens is a matter of simply adding more iCOMPEL units and the iCOMPEL manager to your standard IT network configuration.

Setup is easy. Just connect the iCOMPEL appliance to your network and to an LCD or other display device, power it up, and once it has an IP address from the network, you can use a browser to access the network appliance via a DHCP server. Fixed IP addresses can also be set. (For sample applications, see pages 5 –6.)

To upload media, drag and drop from your PC or Mac® desktop or folder to the iCOMPEL media folders on the appliance’s internal hard disk or use the iCOMPEL user interface to browse for and upload the media files.
