“Our solution was designing the HDN, an industrial strength media player that thrives in real world digital signage environments such as QSR menu boards, kiosks, and any place performance is required but space is at a premium”, said Scott Falso.
Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Seneca, a leading custom computer and appliance manufacturer providing simple, reliable, and scalable solutions for digital signage, today announced the HDN media player is certified to perform at 55C (131F) ambient operating temperatures. This certification gives the HDN a 50% boost in thermal performance compared to the standard Intel NUC (certified to 35C or 95F). Seneca HDN is a game changer in the high performance ultra-compact PC media player marketplace.
“We really like the Intel NUC platform but realized that beyond its compact size, it was not ideal for digital signage,” said Scott Falso, Director of Market Development, Seneca. “Our solution was designing the HDN, an industrial strength media player that thrives in real world digital signage environments such as QSR menu boards, kiosks, and any place performance is required but space is at a premium.”
Latest Product Design Reflects a 50% Increase in Thermal Performance from the Original Platform
Heat is a computer’s worst enemy so it is important the system has proper cooling in order for it to perform. This is particularly critical in digital signage as media players are often mounted in tight spaces, behind displays where airflow is hindered. Seneca successfully reengineered the Intel NUC to improve airflow and heat dissipation to yield performance gains even when installed in tight spaces.
Seneca’s industry experience and engineering strength helped identify and incorporate additional features to further transform the Intel NUC into the Seneca HDN.
Enhanced features include:
- Raised thermal performance threshold to 55C
- Integrated power supply to eliminate need for cumbersome external power brick
- Added serial port option for monitor control
- Added optional dual Wi-Fi for improved wireless bandwidth
- Added tool-less wall mounting solution to simplify installation and maintenance
