The Black Box iCOMPEL P Series VESA Wi-Fi Digital Signage Publisher features 40GB of internal SSD storage capacity and an Intel Core I3 processor that is powerful enough to handle professional-quality Flash animation and video-intensive digital signage applications. It's ready-to-go right out-of-the-box with all necessary software already preinstalled. Software updates are free and there's no annual license fees to worry about - resulting in a lower overall cost of ownership. The iCOMPEL P Series features HDMI and DVI-I outputs. There's also an eSATA interface for connecting an external eSATA-equipped storage device.
The iCOMPEL P Series is equipped with two USB 2.0 ports as well as two USB 3.0 ports and two USB sleep-and-charge ports. Whether you prefer to transfer media and data via USB or eSATA, the iCOMPEL supports a wide variety of audio, video, photo, data, animation, and text file formats, so you'll be able to easily create an exciting, attention-grabbing audiovisual experience with unique signage layouts. Wired LAN and wireless Wi-Fi connectivity are another highlight of this model. Once connected, you can quickly integrate the iCOMPEL into your existing network and manage it over a Web browser. To ensure your media and data stay secure, Black Box has equipped the iCOMPEL with a built-in firewall that keeps access limited to authorized users only. Plus, there's no need to install any third-party software or virus protection because the iCOMPEL supports HTTP and HTTPS security protocols. It supports the LDAP authentication protocol and VPN capabilities for secure remote access as well.
The iCOMPEL's Intel Core I3 processor is able to handle professional Flash content at greater than 20 fps and video content at greater than 30 fps. You can create stimulating, multi-screen layouts that contain multiple display zones. Every zone can have its own continuous-loop playlist as well, so you can add several additional media files and have them run on a preset schedule - meaning you can play different layouts at different times. Plus, it's simple to stream RSS feeds from the Internet in order to display text crawl feeds so your layouts contain up-to-the-minute streaming news, weather reports, stock info, etc. It's also worth mentioning that the iCOMPEL supports up to four video zones, so you can run up to four different videos simultaneously. You can take advantage of unlimited text, still image, and audio zones - as well as up to 15 HTML zones.
While this Black Box Publisher can connect directly to a single display, it is also compatible with iCOMPEL subscriber units. One iCOMPEL Publisher can send media over your network to multiple iCOMPEL Subscribers for showcasing your digital signage content, even from remote locations. The iCOMPEL Subscriber connects directly to your monitor, and one unit is required for each monitor in your digital signage network.
