First 4K OPS Signage Solution for Three Displays – Advantech DS-280

July,2017, Munich, Germany, a global embedded computing leader providing embedded platforms across versatile vertical markets, is glad to announce its first OPS signage solution—DS-280 which streams up to 4K media content on three displays. Usually, OPS signage players in the market only support dual displays which limits their application. Advantech DS-280 breaks this barrier and creates more possibilities and efficiency by supporting three displays through JAE, HDMI and DP interfaces. Powered by 6th Gen. Intel® Core™ i7/ i5/ i3 BGA processors and integrated Intel HD Graphics, DS-280 allows for a maximum of true 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution for a stunning and immerse viewing experience. With WebAccess/IMM content management and WISE-PaaS/RMM device management software built in, DS-280 delivers a hardware and software ready OPS signage solution that simplifies signage deployment and management and is perfect for flight information display systems (FIDS), retail, education applications, and more.

True 4K Exceptional Performance on Three Displays

DS-280 is Advantech’s first OPS (Open Pluggable Standard) digital signage solution which supports up to  three displays. The cabless signage player is powered by the latest 6th generation Intel® CoreTM i7/ i5/ i3 BGA processor. It delivers an exceptional 4K graphic performance through Intel® HD Graphics 530, supporting HEVC/H.265, AVC/H.264, MPEG2, VC1/WMV9, VP8, JPEG/MJPEG, VP9 video formats. DS-280 uses the latest interfaces to fulfill customer's advanced requirements, such HDMI 2.0 support for 4096 x 2160 @60Hz maximum resolution, and dual DDR4 SO-DIMM with up to 32GB memory.

Compact yet Scalable and Easy Maintenance

DS-280 can be connected to an OPS-compliant display through a JAE TX-25A 80-pin connector supporting UART, HDMI/ DP, USB2.0/ 3.0, and audio with specific OPS displays requiring minimum cabling. The modular slot-in design simplifies the installation, usage, maintenance, and upgrade of digital signage applications. Moreover, it can drive two larger format displays via HDMI2.0 and DP1.2 interface making it a powerful multi-display cost-effective signage solution.

Simplifying Deployment with Management Software Built-in

Advantech DS-280 is integrated with WebAccess/IMM, web-based content management software. With an intuitive user interface, users can easily edit content layout according to their requirements. In addition, an up-to-date scheduling function allows real-time information and advertising campaign management. DS-280 also incorporates cloud-based device management software WISE-PaaS/RMM. With WISE-PaaS/RMM, users can manage their signage devices in real-time. Moreover, WISE-PaaS/RMM provides an Intel security function to ensure on-screen content is secured and Acronis functions to recover essential data as backup. DS-280 helps you deploy scalable signage applications that can network easily with other devices reducing your total cost of ownership and time-to-market.
