Wincomm WPE-796 engine box supports high-end discrete graphics cards for digital signage
Press release [Friday 2 December 2011]
Wincomm has now followed up on its success with the WPE-793 in the digital signage market by releasing the WPE-796. Not only is the new engine box lighter, thinner and more compact, it also comes with a PCI-E x16 slot that customers can use for a high-end discrete graphics card to improve the clarity and comfort of digital signage applications. A separate PCI-E x4 slot can be used for a TV card to provide public information.
The digital signage market now has a requirement for displaying high definition images. Existing products were however unable to meet the graphics requirements due to limited CPU processing power. Wincomm WPE-796 provides an answer by using a high-end discrete graphics card to meet the demands of digital signage displays.
As digital signage installations must be compatible with other industrial products, the product dimensions of the WPE-796 conform to the US Electronics Industry Association (EIA) 1U rack form-factor. The WPE-796 can therefore be placed in steel or aluminum racks, simplifying overall design and on-site installation for the customer. It can even be placed in the same rack as network servers and other industrial products.
The hardware design of the WPE-796 supports Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs for improved performance, operating temperatures of between 0~50 degrees C and extended operation around the clock. Wincomm is able to deliver this level of reliability thanks to its proprietary cooling technology. A combination of directed air flow and thermal conduction effectively reduces the temperatures of the CPU, north bridge and south bridge chipsets, enabling the WPE-796 to maintain a high level of reliability and stability all year round. Another feature of the WPE-796 is the low-noise design. At an operating temperature of 25 degrees C, noise is significantly lower than other products on the market, at 37dB.
Digital signage services are now being introduced by many industries. Hotel operators, the tourist industry, airport services, banks, hospitals and other service-related industries are all installing digital signage in indoor and outdoor public spaces to provide consumers with easy information access. The key to signage system installations is the stability and ruggedness of the control PC. The WPE-796's ruggedness and high availability means it can continue to run stably in harsh conditions to provide consumers with the latest video information throughout the year.
The WPE-796 is shipping now to meet the needs of the digital signage market and provide customers with product options they can count on.
