SignStix announces SoC module for ‘player-less’ digital signage11 August 2016
SignStix is to launch a System-on-Chip (SoC) player module, enabling its software to be installed directly onto commercial display panels from some of the world’s leading screen manufacturers including Toshiba, Phillips and Samsung.
This SoC solution, available towards the end of September 2016, will enable direct integration with selected commercial display panels, alleviating the need for an external digital signage player and cabling. This is designed to make the process of installation simpler and more cost effective and reduce on-going costs and maximise efficiency.
“The new SoC player is a massive leap forward,” said Nick Fearnley, CEO and founder of SignStix. “Though our existing SignStix Android player enables best-in-class 4K playback and content delivery, the new panels entering the market have very capable processors built in. Having SignStix on the panel itself is like having Netflix on your TV at home – no additional kit, boxes or cables required and minimal setup – just switch on the panel and start delivering engaging content.
“As there is no software download, nor any servers required, we’ve now made global digital engagement as easy as using your smartphone, and generally for a much smaller on-going investment than most solutions you’ll find on the market.”
