1st March 2011 /Targetwire/ - NEXCOM has introduced a powerful digital signage player known as NDiS 125-L, which because of it’s fanless design, boasts an extended product life span and superb reliability.
NDiS 125-L is housed in a maintenance-free fanless chassis which eliminates moving parts and therefore increases component life span. Users thus benefit from a lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and superb reliability.
Organisations invest vast amounts of money developing eye-catching Digital Signage advertisements, only for the effectiveness of the campaign to be diminished by a faulty or unreliable hardware platform. Today, a commercial PC with conventional CPU cooling fan is still widely used within the digital signage industry. By its nature a commercial PC is not designed for the rigors of 24/7 digital signage deployments and its CPU fan is the component most prone to fail. This is because a CPU fan can quickly become worn out with a combination of dust, greasy dirt and high temperatures; failure of this component causes the PC to overheat and ultimately fail. Therefore If your digital signage campaign is running on a conventional PC with CPU fan, then you will undoubtedly face the headache of increased maintenance and low reliability.
To solve the problem, the Digital Signage Industry is increasingly moving towards Fanless solutions which have no moving parts. As Steven Wu, the Vice President of NEXCOM Multi-Media Solution Business Unit, says, "A Fanless design is at 'the heart' of Nexcom’s product offering! By reducing moving parts to enhance component life span, platforms such as the NDiS 125-L fanless digital signage player, can reliably play multi-media content 24/7 hours a day and meet users' high demands."
In addition to reliability, buyers also evaluate other criteria when making a purchasing decision including Return on Investment, functionality, performance and I/O. "ROI always comes first in the mind of digital signage buyers," says Steven Wu, "Marketers use multi-media signage to attract targeted audience. Hence, the performance of CPU and GPU, the richness of I/O, the integration of display and player, and the secured cable connection between display and player are all essential for satisfying different demands and achieving the best ROI."
