Setup is easy and a built-in firewall keeps access limited to authorized users only. Plus, there's no need to install any third-party software or virus protection because the iCOMPEL uses HTTP and HTTPS security protocols. It also supports the LDAP authentication protocol and VPN capabilities for secure remote access. Plus, the iCOMPEL is designed for standard SMB digital signage display. The integrated Intel Celeron G450 2.5 GHz processor works well for displaying optimized Flash content at less than 20 fps and video content at less than 30 fps.

Other useful iCOMPEL features include USB 2.0 and 3.0 connectivity, an HDMI output, a DVI-I output, support for up to 15 HTML zones, and support for unlimited text/image zones. You can create multiple screen layouts containing multiple display zones. Plus, every zone can have its own continuous-loop playlist where you can add several additional media files that will run on a preset schedule. You can play different layouts at different times. You can also automatically collect and display text crawl feeds from the Internet. This makes it possible for your layouts to contain up-to-the-minute streaming news, weather reports, stock info, etc.

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.
