NEC Announce (More) OPS Compliant Computers

Andrew Neale

NEC Display Solutions of America announced this week two additional Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) compliant computers for seamless integration with select NEC large-screen displays and multimedia projectors.

These ‘internal’ PCs can run multiple video formats and high-definition content at 1080p and are targeted for use with digital signage in airports, quick-service restaurants, education, rental and staging, corporate lobbies, healthcare facilities and retail stores.

The new OPS-PCIC family utilises Intel Sandy Bridge microarchitecture with a 2.5GHz Dual Core i5 CPU and 2GB of RAM and with an integrated Ethernet connection, a DisplayPort output and four USB ports.

The OPS-PCIC family includes the following models:

  • OPS-PCIC-5WH, Windows 7 Embedded and 250GB disk drive
  • OPS-PCIC-5WS, Windows 7 Embedded and 32GB solid state drive

Rachel Karnani, Product Manager for Large-Screen Displays at NEC Display Solutions told us “Customers can enjoy simplified and seamless integration with the OPS devices because DVI video, stereo audio, RS232 control and power are all passed internally from the display to the OPS device.”

She continued “The OPS devices are durable and protected with an all-stainless steel chassis, as well as integrated cooling fans. With both Intel- and AMD-based platforms, NEC’s OPS portfolio is poised to match the broad spectrum of customer requirements.”

These new models join the OPS-PCIA, OPS-PCAFQ and OPS-PCAF families of OPS PCs, which provide customers with a variety of performance options from entry-level to high-end:

  • The OPS-PCIA devices utilize a second generation Intel Dual Core ATOM-based processor coupled with an Nvidia ION2 GPU and are ideal for most commercial applications
  • The OPS-PCAFQ devices consist of an AMD Fusion Quad Core APU with integrated ATI graphics. These models are built to handle the most high-end digital content
  • The OPS-PCAF devices operate with AMD’s 1.6 GHz Dual Core Fusion processor and integrated ATI graphics. These are ideal for running most types of content

NEC’s PH1000U, PX700W, PX750U and PX800X projectors are compatible with most OPS devices, while the X461S and X551S super slim LCD displays are compatible with all OPS families.

The OPS device adapter (SB-02AM) is required for the V422, V462, V551, V651, V651-TOUCH, P402, P462, P552, P702, X463UN and X551UN models, as well as the product bundle offerings.

The OPS-PCIC family of PCs will be available for shipment in July 2012 with a three-year warranty and an estimated street price of $1200.
