November 22, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Advantech's DS-780 is a 4K UHD multi-display fanless signage solution designed for advanced digital signage and multi-display projects. The unit combines high processing and graphics performance with excellent expansion flexibility.

Powered by 6th Generation Intel Core U series processors and integrated with Intel Iris 540 / HD 520 for advanced 3D graphics computing, the fanless computer supports displays up to 4096 x 2160 true 4K resolution via HDMI outputs on three independent displays. HDMI 2.0 design supports 4K up to 60fps allowing 4096 x 2160 resolution along with higher frame rate 2D content. A rich I/O interface includes 3 x HDMI, 2 x RJ-45 (Giga LAN), 4 x USB 3.0 ports, 1 x RS-232, Audio port and m.2/Mini-PCIe for wireless connection and for interconnected devices in IoT. The unit supports HEVC video decoding for better compression ratios requiring less storage space. It also provides two options to meet different application/budget needs including an Intel Iris 540 advanced graphics engine whose 3D computing performance is enhanced by 43%, for graphics-heavy applications such as 3D digital advertising and 4K video playback.

The DS-780 comes bundled with dedicated signage software, WebAccess/IMM and WISE-PaaS/RMM remote device management software, allowing the customer to manage digital signage networks installed in multiple locations with less effort at no extra cost.
