Are you ready for the world of open platform displays?
Open modular slot-in products are either embedded in the computing in the computing slot or are integrated into them. They offer an interchangeable selection of solutions including computing technology, media playback and signal distribution (e.g. AVoverIP) for unlimited versatility.
Should future demands change, the integrated module can be upgraded or re-configured accordingly without having to replace the display.
Choose Your Performance Level - Don’t replace, just upgrade!
Essential - for signage displays in retail environments, passenger information and quick service menu boards.
RaspberryPi CM 4
Advanced - for interactive signage applications, video walls and more complex intelligent signage installations where sensor and other data is processed and displayed in real time.
Intel® SDM Core i5 OPS Core i5
Sharp/NEC computing solutions are simply slotted into the display for a fully integrated solution making external mounting obsolete.
It's an elegant, unobtrusive, cable-free solution with internal connection for power, video, audio and RS232 control.
Sharp/NEC option slot products offer an interchangeable selection of solutions including computing technology, signal distribution, media playback and wireless data transmission.
The embedded solution enables compatible displays and projectors to be upgraded to a tailor-made solution which matches the specific demands of any vertical sector such as Aviation and Transportation, Corporate, Education, Energy and Utility, Retail and Signage.
Low TCO and long-life Serviceability
Industrial and embedded components lower the demand on power usage resulting in significant energy savings and a longer product lifecycle compared to consumer products. Sharp/NEC’s commitment to the highest quality standards and meticulous selection of industrial grade components ensures low failure rates and suitability for 24/7 applications.
Should a failure occur, the embedded unit is easily swapped out without having to replace the entire display. Both the display and the embedded module is covered under 3 year warranty with additional exchange service within EMEA.
There is a single point of contact for service and maintenance. A Sharp/NEC display or projector that incorporates an option board will have matching warranties and one service contact.
If a slot-in product requires servicing or upgrade, it can be easily removed leaving the display or projector fully operational.
The Standalone Adapter even allows the slot-in product to be tested without installing it first.
Infrastructure and design will sustain over a long lifecycle meaning usage can continue even as the display or projector is upgraged. Industrial grade components ensure low failure rates and suitability for 24/7 applications.
Additionally, the 3 years warranty is valid not only for the display and projector but also for the embedded computing solution.
Computing Solutions - Portfolio
OPS Slot-in Computing
Slot-in options based on OPS, the “Open pluggable Specification”, comply with the first industry-wide digital signage standard; OPS slot-In options feature an interchangeable selection of computing power for media playback as well as signal distribution systems.
Intel® Smart Display Modules (SDM)
Intel® SDM delivers the same level of intelligence and interoperability as the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), but in a smaller form factor and with no housing, allowing integration into modern slim profile displays.
The Intel® SDM is validated for commercial and embedded use, reliable in 24/7 operating applications.
Raspberry Pi Compute Modules
Open and modular, the power of the Raspberry compute module is fully accessible to fit individual usage needs. Seamless, embedded intelligence empowers smart connection to the Internet of Things (IoT) for digital signage as well as for presentation use. Integrators benefit from the vast number of already available open-source solutions supporting a broad range of operating systems, users benefit from direct user access to various third-party Content Management Systems through Sharp/NEC’s partnerships with leading software providers.
Pre-installed on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module with the modular MPi4 NEC MediaPlayer Kit, it has never been easier to create intuitive signage content straight out of the box.
Open modular slot-in options from Sharp/NEC offer an interchangeable selection of solutions including computing technology, media playback and signal distribution (e.g. AVoverIP) for unlimited versatility.
Application usage can be extended through the integration of connectivity standards such as HDBaseT or SDI, widening the performance level of the display.
The embedded solution enables the displays to be enhanced to a custom-made solution which matches the specific demands of any application. Should future demands change, the integrated module can be upgraded or re-configured accordingly without having to replace the display.
