VIA Technologies Inc., Taipei, Taiwan, recently announced its latest Android board support package (BSP) for the VIA Vantage digital signage line which enables a split-screen multi-touch user experience, providing more dynamic interaction within the limited real-estate of a single screen.
The Android BSP enables the combination of app and HTML 5-based content to be displayed simultaneously on a single screen, giving system integrators improved flexibility to create engaging multi-touch digital signage systems. This cost-effective solution allows customers to pack more information and richer multimedia content into a single display.
The VIA Android BSP provides opportunities for a broad spectrum of environments including airports, bus and train stations, shopping centers, and retail stores, as well as a host of other public spaces.
“Customers can maximize the use of existing web-based content by integrating it into digital signage that is placed in key areas for their target market,” says Epan Wu, head of VIA Embedded, VIA Technologies.
