AOPEN enhances visual quality of digital signage with AMD Ryzen™ Embedded Processors
New Digital Engine models for 3, 4, or 6 screen video solutions
October 16, 2018, Taipei, Taiwan, AOPEN is proud to announce its new line-up of advanced Digital Engine® media players for commercial and enterprise solutions. AOPEN’s Digital Engine digital signage players are designed to deliver innovative 3, 4, or 6 screen solutions for QSR (Quick Service Restaurant) menu boards, video walls, digital advertisement, and traffic/information displays.
With the introduction of the brand new DE6340, a second generation 4-port digital signage player is born. As the successor of the DE6140, this new player aims for 4-panel video walls and mouth-watering UHD menu boards. With the DE6340 AOPEN introduces its first AMD Ryzen™ Embedded processor-based digital signage player with four 4K 60 Hz outputs and HDR support for power-efficient solutions with tremendous graphics. This continues the tradition of AOPEN using AMD products to power their digital signage solutions
“Today’s demand for digital signage solutions have increased drastically with the rapid adoption of 4K panels and similar rich content and new technologies. AMD provides solutions that enable high performance embedded applications and we’re delighted to work with AOPEN to create products using the latest AMD technologies included in AMD Ryzen Embedded Processors.” said Stephen Turnbull, director of product marketing, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Group, AMD.
“Thanks to the dedication and support from AMD, AOPEN can combine the latest visual technologies with our knowledge of our customers and how to provide the best service to them.” said Stan Tsui, head of AOPEN’s channel & customer division. “With over 20 years of experience in dedication to our customers, we understand their needs and with our knowledge of many generations of AMD products, we are able to create better products. In turn, our customers develop better solutions that drive customer satisfaction. We’ve witnessed AMD’s dedication to digital signage solutions. Thanks to their strong headway in visual applications we are able to offer a more customer-focused product range with new technologies, such as the powerful new Ryzen™ processors and Radeon graphics with Eyefinity™ technology for maximum flexibility for our customers.
AOPEN’s DE6200 featuring AMD’s RX-421 embedded SoC, is a value solution that solves the general lack of triple digital output solutions from other vendors. It excels at delivering vivid content, such as 4K promotional videos alongside static information, such as menus and service information.
The DEV7610-X6 features an AMD Radeon™ E8860 GPU with 6 Mini Display Ports for high-end, multi-screen video wall solutions aimed at premium and corporate locations, or critical operations such as control rooms. It features an aluminum front panel for an unobtrusive installation.
With dedication to product design with maximum performance and usability in mind, AOPEN’s products are recognisable by their distinctive power button and durability. With 20 years of experience in digital signage, AOPEN has built the knowledge necessary to not only meet its customers’ needs, but go beyond any expectations. Currently, final touches are being put on various multiport models with scaling support for multiple displays that go beyond 6 ports.
DE6200 – Low power, high-performance triple screen AMD solution
The DE6200 is a cost-effective design with low power consumption. The player has three display outputs with support for hardware decode of H.264 or HEVC/H.265 for video, thanks to the embedded AMD RX-421 SoC. The benefit over traditional 3-display solutions from most other vendors is that the DE6200 supports 4K on its display outputs. With onboard hardware accelerated support for HEVC/H.265 and H.264 decoding, 4K@60Hz video material is delivered lag and stutter free over its HDMI 2.0 port. The HDMI 1.4 ports are perfect for displaying more static 4K@30Hz content. The DE6200 and the new DE6340 share an identical 1.25L chassis and are easily adaptable to any ultra-small form factor installation.
DE6340 – AMD Ryzen™ Embedded Processor-based digital signage
The DE6340 is AOPEN’s first AMD Ryzen Embedded™ processor-based digital signage player and excels at creating low-power, high-performance symmetrical video walls. Powered by the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1807B processor, it brings together the breakthrough performance of the pioneering AMD “Zen” CPU and “Vega*” GPU architectures in a seamlessly-integrated SoC solution for powerful graphics capabilities and processing efficiency. With four HDMI 2.0b ports supporting 4K @ 60p it allows for ultra-high definition content (HEVC/H.265 & VP9 support**) displayed across a variety of video walls while keeping total power consumption well below 90W.
The DE6340 features AiCU, which reduces legacy costs associated with management and maintenance. The AiCU enables remote control (Power, BIOS settings and Windows functions) and advanced system data recording. It stores maintenance, location, and project data for easy troubleshooting and reporting, while the Super RTC simplifies scheduling power on/off cycles for enhanced power-saving. The AiCU also includes HDMI signal detection, which checks for loose, or broken cables to help troubleshooting any display issues. The DE6340 will be available near the end of Q4 2018.
DEV7610-X6 High-end video wall solution
The new DEV7610-X6 is a high-end player for multi-screen video wall solutions. The new housing with an aluminum front was designed for unobtrusive installation in commercial environments. Graphics are provided by an AMD Radeon™ E8860 GPU with six mini DisplayPort connections, while an LGA1151 Intel® Core™ CPU powers both the onboard DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 ports. The front panel of the DEV7610-X6 features line-out and mic-in, USB Type-C USB 3.1 Gen2, and USB 3.0 ports. On the rear, there are an additional 2x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0 ports, an RJ-45 Gbit Ethernet port and six mini-DisplayPort connectors.
The DEV7610-X6 will be available in November.
