- VIA Technologies, Inc today announced the VIA Video Wall Mini, a fanless all-in-one solution capable of driving up to four displays using a single player.
The VIA Video Wall Mini has been specifically designed to enable retailers, restaurateurs, coffee shop owners, and other small businesses to overcome the limitations of single-display digital signage systems and transform their spaces into immersive multimedia environments that stimulate increased engagement with customers.
By combining a single fanless player that supports up to four displays at stunning resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 with the powerful VIA MagicView™ content management platform, the VIA Video Wall Mini not only reduces the cost and complexity of multi-screen installations but also simplifies the broadcasting of a diverse array of high-definition multimedia programming throughout the space. The displays can be deployed in a variety of separate and stitched configurations, including 2 x 2, 1 x 4, and 4 x 1, to provide small business owners with additional flexibility to customize their installations to meet their specific needs.“As the demand for digital signage grows in retail and other segments, the limitations of single-display systems are becoming increasingly apparent and more and more customers have been asking us for cost-effective multi-display platforms that are easy to deploy and manage,”
commented Epan Wu, Head of the VIA Embedded Division. “With the VIA Video Wall Mini, our aim is to address this growing need by providing a highly flexible and affordable all-in-one solution that is ideal for transforming almost any environment with inspiring installations.”VIA Video Wall Mini Player
