Panasonic plug-in computer with Scala Software enables turnkey digital signage
Panasonic recently unveiled the PLUG-VC250XS, a plug-in computer with Scala’s InfoChannel Player 3 software pre-installed to provide a turnkey solution for digital signage applications.
The PLUG-VC250XS “computer on a board” fits into the interchangeable multi-function slots of Panasonic’s 42-inch and 50-inch 6-series plasma displays, eliminating the need for additional hardware.
The PLUG-VC250XS is equipped with a Pentium-M 900MHz CPU, 256MB RAM memory, 30GB hard drive and network interfaces including two PCMCIA slots, two USB ports, a serial controller port and an Ethernet LAN port. The PLUG-VC250XS also is pre-installed with Windows XP Embedded Operating Systemyer 3 software.
Installation requires users to plug the computer into the interchangeable slot of a Panasonic plasma display and connect it with an Ethernet cable. The power is supplied by the plasma display to the PLUG-VC250XS internally. After initial set-up steps, the display is ready to work in the SCALA network environment.
