NEC Display Solutions Unveils New Slot-in PCs

Andrew Neale

NEC Display Solutions Europe this week announced the launch of its new digital signage devices for media playback and IT operations. They’re launching a series of new Slot-in PCs based on NEC’s Open Modular intelligence (OMi), the platform that enables smart and seamless connections between source and display, to deliver powerful, tailored and future-proof digital signage.

The OPS Slot-in PC is an embedded computer that supports a wide variety of uses, from static content playback to the most demanding, interactive and high-resolution applications. These include everything from retail and digital-out-of-home (DooH) advertising to food and beverage menu boards, transportation wayfinding and information screens to digital cinema posters – and much, much more.

The new Slot-in devices are based on the seventh and most recent generation of Intel® CoreTM processor technology including CoreTM i3, CoreTM i5 and even the most powerful CoreTM i7 processors, and simplify device installation, usage and maintenance while making it easier to upgrade digital signage equipment. The variety of interchangeable Slot-in products alongside high levels of customisation options enable custom-made solutions that are perfectly matched to individual demands. They remove the need for external sources, providing an all-in-one signage solution.

Ulf Greiner, Senior Product Manager Solutions at NEC Display Solutions Europe, told us “This updated product range significantly widens our product portfolio of computing devices for media playback and IT operations. In addition to our Raspberry Pi and Android-based OPS computers, NEC is now refreshing our broad Intel® based computing line-up, comprising every performance level to meet with every customer’s individual needs and budget.”

Alongside the OPS Slot-in PCs with CoreTM processors, NEC Display Solutions is launching two additional products: the OPS value Slot-in PC featuring a Quad Core Intel® Atom® processor, providing the perfect mix of price and performance. Meanwhile, the External Micro PC features a similar processor to the Entry version, but is designed to support standalone operation where displays don’t feature an OPS-slot, or when multiple displays rely on a single playout system.

The three new devices complement NEC Display Solutions’ existing portfolio of Raspberry Pi- and Android-based OPS computers, and will bring more intelligent and dynamic signage to a wide range of industries and applications.

NEC Display Solutions is offering its European software partners and prospective customers a one-month, free-of-charge trial period for all the new OMi products. To sign up for a trial click here.
