Philips Signage Solutions, operated by Envision Peripherals Inc., today announced the HDBaseT receiver in Intel's Open Pluggable Specification form factor module, CDR25.
Philips' CDR25 HDBaseT OPS module is designed to be seamlessly integrated with Philips OPS-ready commercial EL and VL series displays as well as zero bezel XL and XH series displays.
With CDR25 plugged in, Philips commercial digital signage displays act as an all-in-one display that is able to playback the content from a remote media player up to 100 meters (328 feet) away over industry standard category 5e or category 6 cables, the company said. Any uncompressed ultra-high-definition video (up to 4K), audio, and power over HDBaseT (PoH - up to 100W) will be transmitted to Philips commercial digital signage displays from the remote media player.
"CDR25 is the key component that simplifies the deployment of the cabling configuration on applications that have physical location limitation on applications such as display array, QSR or fast casual digital menu boards, and digital signage video walls," said Glen Young, senior product marketing manager of Envision Peripherals Inc., in the announcement. "It also tremendously benefits the cost of ownership and space saving to the business owners."
Philips' CDR25 HDBaseT OPS module is certified by the HDBaseT Alliance, is fully compatible with all HDBaseT certified transmitters in the market today and is now available for customers, the company said.
