The BX-950 Box Computer Supports "J-AD Vision" Digital Signage at Shinagawa Station
Digital signage is growing as a new advertising media and means of information distribution just as TV, newspaper, and magazines.
East Japan Marketing & Communications, Inc. installed a test version of its digital signage in the Yaesu south entrance concourse of Tokyo Station in July 2008.
Since then, it has continued installing similar setups throughout the city, and by the end of 2009, the "J-AD Vision" digital signage had expanded to a total of 170 screens at 18 different locations in 12 metropolitan stations.
This product has the power to play back HD images and other rich content while maintaining a small footprint and a design that requires neither a fan nor a hard drive. It is widely acclaimed for its superiority of being able to reduce total costs including running costs. Each display is connected to an IPC-BX950T1D-DC unit.
The free passage inside Shinagawa Station connects the central entrance to the Shinkansen platforms and Konan exit. Here, there is a constant stream of people headed to the business district and airport.
The BX950 "Box Computer" can be installed in an area with a size of only 35 mm x 182 mm x 257 mm. The space-saving design means you don't have to worry about the installation location. The diskless design makes it perfect for embedded use and long-term applications. The fanless construction lets it hold up in rigorous environments and reduces maintenance and inspection work. In addition, it is equipped with a DVI interface for full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) and can be connected to an HDTV (only for model with DVI).
