Lanner and Matrox target 4K digital signage with new Intel box

03 Mar 2016

Lanner Electronics has launched a new high-performance Intel powered box available as a turnkey video wall solution incorporating Matrox graphics cards.

The LEC-2284 is powered by Intel’s 4th generation Core i7/i5/i3 CPUs, and adds to Lanner's video wall solution line-up.

Lanner says the LEC-2284 is positioned as an ideal solution for digital signage given its rich I/O and expansion options. The box offers dual 2.5-inch HDD/SDD drive bays and one mSATA socket, with expansion made possible via the included PCI, PCI Express x8 and mini-PCIe socket with SIM card reader.

Lanner now offers two turnkey video wall solutions incorporating Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards.

The new systems are designed for HD and 4K digital signage and video walls.

Available in configurations designed for up to six displays, the LEC-2284 is available with Matrox C420 or C680 cards in a pre-tested and certified configuration, and provides maximum power and performance in an industrial ruggedised platform, Lanner says.

Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards provide dual-, triple-, quad- and 6-display configurations up to 4K and feature 2 GB of on-board memory plus secure mini DisplayPort connectivity.

The cards come bundled with Matrox PowerDesk for Windows desktop management software for easy configuration and control of multi-display setups including stretched or independent desktops, clone mode, pivot, bezel management and edge overlap.
