Yet the player modules are swappable for easy repairs and upgrades, they quickly dock in and out of a slot in the screens. ComQi’s Intel SDM solution is launching with a pair of standard and high-demand slot-loaded PC modules, for standard displays, sized at 43 and 55 inches diagonal and video wall displays, sized at 46 and 55 inches diagonal. The configurations can be mixed and matched, as either module fits with either display.
Both players run on the Ubuntu Linux operating system and are fully integrated and ready to run and work with ComQi’s EnGage content management platform for digital signage and interactive retailing. The Intel Smart Display Module design is the second-generation of smart players developed by the tech giant. The smaller modules are roughly one-third the size of the units built for Intel’s original Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), which pioneered the concept of smart displays and pluggable media players.
