The SI-313 3x 4K digital signage player is powered by 3rd Generation AMD Embedded R-series APU (Codename: Merlin Falcon) integrated with discrete-class Next-Gen AMD Radeon™ HD graphics. By utilizing AMD Eyefinity technology, SI-313 can be configured to run a video wall of three large HDMI displays with 4K resolution per display.
Featuring triple HDMI 2.0 with hardware EDID emulation, the SI-313 digital signage system is specifically designed to distribute digital menu boards and signage boards for delivering specific and dynamic messaging to convey brand information and highly targeted promotions to a large audience in airports, shopping malls, banks and restaurants. With built-in hardware EDID emulation, SI-313 can prevent issues of lost displays and protect against hot plug events that reconfigure the display. Housed with segregated flow ventilation, it supports H.264/265 4K video hardware decode for dual independent ultra-high-resolution 4K video playback.
The system integrates IBASE’s unique iSMART intelligent energy-saving and iDOC remote network monitoring technologies that allow users to operate either remotely or through the internet to enable advanced functions such as auto power on/off scheduling, system temperature/fan/voltage monitoring functions. SI-313 has two DDR4 SO-DIMM accommodating up to 32GB of system memory and expansion interfaces that include M.2 B-Key, mPCIe(x1) and a SIM card slot. Measuring only 216mm(W) x 150mm(D) x 33mm(H), this slim unit can be fitted into the tightest spaces behind displays. Video Rating: / 5
Signera introduces its new Signera Solo Stick. The stick provides a full computer in a compact size. The Solo will also allow customers to utilize Signera’s existing easy-to-use interface in a single module application. The stick is built on Intel’s tried-and-true hardware. Although small factor, the stick has shown to be a contender to larger systems in agility and ability. The Solo Stick also provides a complete solid-state application, meaning no moving parts, meaning low risk of failure even after

years in the field. Also since the Solo Stick can run on USB power, it can be installed virtually anywhere or behind anything. Signera took it a step further by removing Windows from the stick and loading a proprietary customized version of Ubuntu Linux to provide a more stable and efficient environment. And since the Stick is 100% managed from the cloud, there is no hard or confusing setup (and no, you don’t need to learn Linux). If you have Wired internet, you literally do no setup on the stick. If you have Wireless, you’ll simply hook a keyboard/mouse to the stick and click the “Setup Wireless” option when the stick boots up.
Signera has already sold out their first run of these sticks. They seem to be flying off the shelves. Signera contacted us to let us know their next stock has just arrived, so they have close to 100 more ready to go. We were able to get our hands on a production version and the stick took everything we threw at it, even video! I think this will change where digital signage is installed, and where it can be used. Opening the door to applications unheard of in the digital signage space until now.
A major digital signage hardware provider [name withheld] announced their version of a Stick Digital Signage Player at the Intel booth at the Digital Signage Expo 2016 (DSE 2016) show this year. But it looks like Signera has beat everyone, including them, to market. Since [name withheld] is the leading provider of hardware to digital signage companies, it’ll be interesting to see how this affects the industry. Signera is the leader to market with a new technology yet again. Signera was also the leader to market back in 2007 when they released their multiple-module SaaS system. The first digital signage software to offer multiple zones or modules on a single-screen powered by a single player.
Signera can offer a free one-on-one demonstration of their system and can answer any questions about the Solo Stick (or their other products) when filling out this form.
