Advantech pushes standards with signage player

Advantech has announced the release of its Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) compliant digital signage player ARK-DS220.

OPS was created by Intel in an effort to standardise the design and development of digital signage devices and pluggable media players. It is designed to address digital signage market fragmentation and simplify device installation, usage, maintenance and upgrades.

The ARK-DS220 complies with Intel OPS standard and is powered by an Intel Atom D525 dual-core processor (fan-based) and Intel Atom N455 single-core processor (fanless) with integrated NVIDIA GT218 (ION2) graphic module for Full HD playback. Its slot-in module design is compliant with the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS).
