Samsung Showcases Digital Signage Platform

The open source technology uses an SoC, 4 GB or 8 GB storage

Besides the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2013), the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) is taking place right now (February 26-28, Las Vegas, Nevada).

It is there that Samsung has formally revealed its open source digital signage platform.

At the heart of it lies a dual-core processor, coupled with a full codec video processor and 4GB or 8GB internal storage. It is basically an SoC (system on chip) that makes PCs unnecessary to run digital content.

ME-C series, PE-C series and MD-C series signage products with support for the platform will be launched later this year.

And since it's a cloud-based solution, software updates and changes will be pushed to connected displays remotely.

All in all, Samsung basically took the idea of cloud-connected Smart TVs and made digital signs out of it.
