    iCOMPEL Q Series VESA, Mini Subscriber

    Quick Facts

  • Create and manage attention-getting digital signage with little creative or technical know-how.
  • The appliance-based solution provides fast setup with all software preinstalled.
  • Controllable via a standard Web browser connection.

  • Further Details

  • Easy to set up and import media
    Just connect the iCOMPEL unit to your network and then to the back of a display. After booting up, the iCOMPEL unit automatically obtains an IP address from the network. Fixed IP addresses can also be set. To import media, drag and drop media from your computer desktop or a folder to the iCOMPEL media folders on the appliance's hard disk. Optionally, use its intuitive interface to browse for files.

  • Ideal for industrial settings or small businesses
    Some environments are trickier than others because of airborne particles. The iCOMPEL Q Series appliances are sealed, fanless, and quiet, so they can work in the greasy confines of a quick-service restaurant (QSR) as a menu board or in industrial environments as production systems. They work well in noise-sensitive environments as well, such as museums or theaters.

  • Manage content remotely
    Install an iCOMPEL unit on your network and manage it via a Web browser. One iCOMPEL Publisher can send media over the network to an iCOMPEL Subscriber - even on the other side of the world.

  • Trouble-free integration
    Integrates into your digital signage system with other iCOMPEL appliances.

  • Layout tools for quick and sophisticated signage
    The included software comes with a number of free, professionally designed layouts, so you can be up and running, displaying your choice of content in a professionally designed format within minutes. Or you can create your own. The user-friendly layout and design tool makes it easy to create and modify layouts. Adjust, resize, position, and layer zones with a simple click and drag. All zones can be displayed with transparency.

  • Supports many media formats
    Combine video with scrolling text, photos, Flash, and Web content. In addition to HTML, XML, and RSS media, iCOMPEL handles MPEG, AVI, QuickTime®, and PowerPoint® media; JPEG, GIF, and TIFF images; and WAV and MP3 audio.

  • Supports multi-zone layouts
    iCOMPEL supports unlimited zones for text and images, and up to 15 zones for HTML. Plays up to two simultaneous videos - great for showing different videos on a screen.

  • Stream dynamic RSS feeds
    RSS subscriber features automatically collect and display text crawl feeds from the Internet, which is great for streaming news or weather reports. Supports XML.

  • Achieve pixel-accurate alignment
    Manually set pixel or percentage measurements to achieve pixel-accurate alignment or lock a movie zone to a desired aspect ratio (16:9, 5:4, or 4:3). Also, rotate screen images for either portrait or landscape orientation.

  • Create playlists and schedule display times
    Set up one or more screen layouts containing one or more zones for display. Every zone in the display layout has its own playlist, to which you can add multiple media files. Each playlist runs in a continuous loop per a preset schedule. Different layouts can be scheduled to play at different times of the day.

  • Highly secure Linux®-based appliance with built-in firewall
    A built-in firewall keeps access limited to authorized users only, and there's no need to install any third-party software or virus protection. iCOMPEL uses HTTP and HTTPS security protocols, and supports the LDAP authentication protocol and VPN capabilities for secure remote access.

  • Low ownership cost
    Free updates and no ongoing subscription or licensing fees for lower cost of ownership.

  • Interactive digital signage
    GPIO external device input capabilities (for motion detectors, sensors, etc.).

  • Support for high resolutions
    iCOMPEL supports HD digital media and video output to 1920 x 1080 resolution. The device comes equipped with HDMI and VGA video outputs.

  • Small, but mighty
    Small form factor with SSD drive. VESA mounts on back of screen.
