Passenger Information Display Systems

Slot-in computing technology

Sharp/NEC’s modular computing technology provides a smart and seamless connection between source and display to deliver powerful, tailored and future proof digital signage and passenger information systems.

Simplifying device installation, usage, maintenance and upgrade, the integrated slot-in options feature a customizable selection of computing power and signal distribution.


Sharp NEC Display Solutions has adopted the new and future proof Intel®Smart Display Module (SDM) which replaces the previous OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) interface. The future-proofed card edge connector accommodates higher bandwidth and picture quality requirements to support 8K resolution displays and video capture. Using the latest Intel® hardware-based security Trusted Platform Module (TPM), with an integrated Intel®SDM our digital displays are not considered a point of vulnerability.

An incremental part of Sharp/NEC’s modular computing technology is the NEC Edition of the Raspberry Pi compute module. The Quad Core 1.5 GHZ processor delivers higher processing speeds and supports 4K/UHD playback, plus the bigger 4Gbyte RAM sees the module demonstrate remarkable performance improvements over its predecessor.

The compute modules can be pre-configured prior to installation
Easy installation and low-cost maintenance
Open architecture for operating system flexibility
High reliability and low power consumption of embedded components
IEEE 802.1X support ensuring full security
