Three Innovative Digital Signage Systems, High on Computing Power, Low on Power Consumption

The stars of the premiere

During a press conference to be held at ISE Amsterdam RAI, on February 1st 2011, (at 17.00 hrs.) Mdina Media will present three innovations in Digital Signage:

1. Extremely small fanless embedded Digital Signage player with 5 year road map

The Fanless Embedded system (17.5 x 18 x 7.2 cm), is powered by an AMD dualcore 25 watt Processor and carries an AMD 780E, SB710 chipset with integrated ATI Radeon(TM) HD 3200 graphics .Low-power consumption puts it easily within the leading group of green PCs. The use of industrial strength SSD drives with SLC technology eliminates any moving parts, and is therefore not subject to wear. And absolutely silent.

2. An extremely powerful Nano-pc, with 5-year roadmap

Mdina Media has developed an extremely powerful nano-pc, with a 5-year roadmap. This industrial player will set the standard for future Digital Signage players. Its cost/effectiveness, durability and safety are unrivalled, with minimal maintenance and support requirements. The compact 3.5 inch (10,7 cm x 15,4 cm x 6 cm) system is powered by an Embedded AMD Turion(TM) II Neo N54L processor (2.2GHz). It features the AMD 785E, SB 8X0 chipset with an integrated ATI Radeon(TM) HD4200 graphics. This industrial player sets the standard for future Digital Signage players.

3. Low power Embedded board with AMD Embedded G-Series Platform

Based on the brand new power-optimized and powerful AMD Embedded G-Series Platform with 9W or 18W TDP, this system delivers new levels of performance for the Digital Signage market. The Mini-ITX Embedded system (17.7 x 17.7 x 5 cm high), is powered by the AMD Fusion APU which integrates a x86 CPU and a discrete-level AMD Radeon(TM) GPU. The system supports DVI, HDMI, VGA video outputs and advanced interfaces such as 6Gb/s SATA, 2nd Generation PCI Express®, and HD Audio. An integrated DDR3 memory controller running at up to 1066 MHz is standard.

Core technology

All three systems can adopt various configurations of SSD drives, based on SLC technology, with 100K P/E write cycles. The core technology is so versatile it can easily be deployed in other computing-intensive areas such as Gaming, Multi-Media-Centers (for home and office use), and numerous other areas where high-end graphics are key. The high-performance computing power also allows for dedicated applications, such as image-recognition and high-end graphics, previously only available in high-power workstations, but at a fraction of the cost.

In addition to the huge leap in raw computing power, the new AMD Embedded G-Series Platform is fully DirectX® 11-compatible. DirectX® 11 enables mind-bending gaming, and incredible graphics. Combined with the AMD Fusion technology, users also get an unprecedented visual experience for their non-gaming applications.

From industry to consumers

Mdina Media's use of leading-edge technology is just another example of the application of industrial-strength products to emerging industrial and consumer markets, opening up vast new areas of innovative services and products.

The low-power consumption puts the full range of solutions in the leading group of the Green PC pack, rising to the challenge of sustainable solutions within the industry. Combined with their Small Form Factor (SFF), this enables truly novel applications, where low noise levels, low power consumption and high performance are at a premium.
