Black Box ICSS-2U-PU-N overview

  • 1Description

The Black Box iCOMPEL S Series 2U Digital Signage Publisher features 500GB of internal HDD storage capacity and an Intel Celeron G540 2.5 GHz processor that is powerful enough to handle standard Flash animation and mid-level video 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 S Series supports signal transmission via its HDMI or DVI-I output. There's also a DisplayPort video output and an eSATA interface for connecting an external eSATA-equipped storage device. For audio signals, this model features multiple analog audio outputs as well as a digital TOSLINK optical jack.

The iCOMPEL S Series is equipped with six USB 2.0 ports - two of which are conveniently located on the front panel - and two USB 3.0 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 connectivity is another highlight of this model. Once connected via RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet, you can quickly integrate the iCOMPEL into your existing network and manage it over a Web browser. You'll be able to send media over a network to your subscriber. 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 processor is able to handle Flash content at less than 20 fps and video content at less 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, built-in RSS Publisher features let you automatically collect and display text crawl feeds from the Internet, which makes it possible for your layouts to contain up-to-the-minute streaming news, weather reports, stock info, etc. It's also worth mentioning that the iCOMPEL supports a maximum of two video zones, which you can use to create a stimulating mix of simultaneously-displayed video content. You can take advantage of unlimited text, still image, and audio zones as well. The iCOMPEL even supports up to 15 HTML zones.

The iCOMPEL provides digital video output resolution up to 2560 x 1600 and it can handle Full HD 1920 x 1080p digital media. Other features include access to Black Box's intuitive graphical user interface and preinstalled drag-and-drop software tools that you can use to quickly and easily change layouts and alter graphical effects. Plus, since the iCOMPEL is built to play standard SMB signage, it will integrate seamlessly into your existing digital signage setup, which should yield less IT headaches and security problems. To further aid in a seamless installation experience, Black Box offers an optional wall mounting kit as well as an optional 2U rackmount kit (both sold separately) so you can keep everything - from software to hardware - neat and organized. For small to mid-sized venues and offices, the iCOMPEL S Series has just the right balance of performance and ease-of-use.

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.
