Anders cooks up Raspberry Pi digital signage media player

July 24, 2014

Despite the variety of PC and Android digital signage players available, computing technologies provider Anders Electronics believes there is still a gap at the bottom of the market for a true professional-grade digital signage player at a very low cost.

According to the company's blog, it has worked with partner Silver Curve to create a digital signage media player running on the Raspberry Pi computing platform, "one of the most exciting and talked about computing platforms out there, with, by the way a fantastic and very powerful graphics processor on board which is fully capable of matching a PC in terms of quality of graphics and video output."

Anders is offering its Raspberry Pi player as either a standalone media player or as an Intel OPS media player, both of which can receive content via Ethernet or (optional) Wi-Fi and render it to an attached screen of up to 1920-by-1080p full-HD resolution.

The standalone player is equipped with HDMI, RS-232, Ethernet, GPIO and USB 2.0 Interfaces. The OPS player is based on Intel's specification and comes with the appropriate 80-pin connector. The platform supports CMS such as SignageLive and INSM and features such as multiple zones, multiple layers, smooth animation and cinematic effects such as depth of field at a cost starting at £280 (USD$476).
