NEC Digital Display Solutions has released three new integrated PCs designed to significantly improve the performance the company’s range of digital displays.

The PCs can be installed independently of any cabling and are compatible with both Windows XP and Linux operating systems.

The recently-released PCs include an Intel Celeron 1.2 processor-based model, a high-end model running an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86 processor and an Intel Atom processor with solid-state disk (SSD) technology for use in light signage applications in the transport sector.

All models support high resolution images, while consuming less power than previous models.

"The market for digital signage at airports, bus stations, train stations, retail outlets and so on has expanded rapidly within recent years, as operators realise that they can [use the technology to] generate additional revenue streams," said Ian Gobey, general manager of NEC Display Solutions Middle East.

"In addition, operators are also using in-vehicle digital signage in trains, buses, taxis and so on to entertain passengers, display route information (such as time to destination) or convey branding and marketing messages relating to the carrier."

The new range of PCs will be available in the Middle East from August 2009.
