Interact. React. Impact.

Connecting consumers and customers with versatile multi-display digital signage solutions

Overview

AMD embedded solutions allow customers to engage with your signage in a whole new way with gesture and facial recognition. We push past HD to 4K with multi-display, scalable and fully integrated solutions1. And we add flexibility to your system with options for high-performance and low-power use, as well as standardized approaches to easy content management.

AMD’s embedded family of accelerated processing units (APUs), systems on a chip (SoCs) and discrete GPUs enable the best of digital signage and other retail applications.

Fitting Room

In the ultra-competitive consumer marketplace – from the retail aisle to the hotel lobby to the transportation hub and beyond – the ability to attract and retain consumers with visually-stunning, engaging multimedia content has a direct impact on the bottom line. Continued innovation in digital signage technology is enabling vendors to further differentiate their products, services, and brands while enhancing customers’ shopping and travel experiences – all of which drives sales.

Key Features

4K Multimedia Performance

Full 4K support enables unparalleled video and graphics quality, with hardware acceleration for 4K video leveraging next generation video codecs like HEVC/H.265, and multiple 4K display capabilities.2

Multi-display Immersion

AMD Eyefinity technology simplifies the process of designing large multi-screen displays by enabling customers to create a single large surface across a wide array of display configurations. This takes out the complexity of programming large video walls, menu boards, and other such multi-screen digital signage applications.

Power Efficiency

AMD embedded processors and discrete graphics are available in a range of thermal design powers (TDPs) – with embedded processors that scale to as low as 6W helping designers achieve the optimal performance-per-watt.

Scalable Solutions

Pin and software stack capability among select AMD Embedded G-Series and R-Series SOCs enables platform scalability, streamlined design cycles and low development costs, complemented by a wide range of AMD Radeon™ and AMD FirePro™ solutions.

Compact Form Factors

AMD embedded and discrete processors are available in a range of form factors designed to optimize space utilization inside and outside the digital signage system, accommodating users’ space constraints and myriad deployment possibilities.

Reduced Complexity and Costs

Integrated multi-display support reduces the software complexity of coding for multiple displays, and can lower OS licensing and BOM costs for multi-screen deployments.

4K Display and HEVC Decode

Among these innovations, 4K graphics processing and multi-display configurability have emerged as must-have digital signage requirements to help ensure that on premises customers can experience vivid, multimedia immersion that equals or surpasses their home entertainment environments. Digital signage technology is simultaneously evolving to provide seamless interactivity with customers’ mobile devices, complemented with advanced gesture and facial recognition capabilities that can facilitate smoother, more intuitive interaction, and improved data capture ability.
