At a meeting between MSI IPC leadership and the management of spo-comm GmbH, the award was formally handed over. "We are very glad about the longstanding and successful partnership with MSI," said Michael Sporrer, CEO of spo-comm GmbH. "Currently we are working together on the further development of one of our bestsellers, which comes out next year."
Joint product development
spo-comm is always involved in the development of new MSI IPC products. "As we know the market and the needs of our customers, we can incorporate many aspects and develop Mini-PCs together with MSI that meet our high standards in every way," says Michael Sporrer. This is why the joint product lines WINDBOX, BRICK, TURO, NOVA and SQUARE are regularly revised and equipped with up-to-date technology. The proven features and formats of the particular series are retained, so the customers of spo-comm can update their applications without any problems.
Partners since 2008
Since 2008, spo-comm GmbH has been the exclusive Europe partner of MSI IPC, the division for industrial PCs of the Taiwanese hardware manufacturer Micro-Star International (MSI). This cooperation is also to be continued in the future and to produce many successful products.[views] => 10 [displayDate] => DateTime Object ( [date] => 2016-12-06 11:45:00.000000 [timezone_type] => 3 [timezone] => Europe/Berlin ) [categoryId] => 236 [template] => [metaKeyWords] => [metaDescription] => [metaTitle] => [tags] => Array ( ) [author] => [assignedArticles] => Array ( ) [media] => Array (  => Array ( [id] => 3792 [blogId] => 226 [mediaId] => 50301 [preview] => 1 [media] => Array ( [id] => 50301 [albumId] => 47 [name] => MSI_IPC_Award_2016 [description] => [path] => media/image/MSI_IPC_Award_2016.png [type] => IMAGE [extension] => jpg [userId] => 56 [created] => DateTime Object ( [date] => 2019-11-07 00:00:00.000000 [timezone_type] => 3 [timezone] => Europe/Berlin ) [fileSize] => 258222 [width] => 1500 [height] => 1000 ) ) ) [attribute] => Array ( [id] => 223 [blogId] => 226 [attribute1] => NULL [attribute2] => [attribute3] => [attribute4] => [attribute5] => [attribute6] => [digi1Inactivateblogarticle] => 0 [digi1Sponsoredpost] => 0 [digi1Featuredpost] => 0 [digi1Hideblogdetailsite] => 0 [digi1Showleftsidebarblogdetailsite] => 0 [digi1Disablecommentfunction] => 0 [digi1Hideimageslider] => 0 [digi1Relatedblogarticle1] => 164 [digi1Relatedblogarticle2] => 208 [digi1Relatedblogarticle3] => 166 [digi1Relatedblogarticle4] => [digi1Relatedblogarticle5] => [isReference] => 0 [relatedItem] => ) [comments] => Array ( ) ) 1 company
Digital Signage (or just: DS) describes the playback of media content on screens, signs, steles and more. Probably one of the best examples for digital advertising is the Times Square in New York. With Digital Signage Players not only the size but also the performance is very important. The solutions are usually installed within displays. They often have to perform 4k content or have to be able to control multiple screens.
Whether milling machines, weighbridges at the recycling center or automated storage systems. In the industry most machines are connected to Mini-PCs, either in order to receive information for further processing, or in order to deliver data for analyzing the information. Due to the often quite harsh working environments (like dust, sawdust, moist air our outdoor installations in general) passively cooled industrial PCs are a reliable and important partner.
No matter where you go shopping today – supermarkets, car dealerships or clothing shops – everywhere you will be able to hear appropriate and pleasant-sounding music in the background. In these cases, you might have already guessed it, Mini-PCs are the basis for playing the songs you’re listening to. The durability, energy efficiency and also the compact design of the PC systems are the main reasons to use them in this field. One textbook example for such a system is the spo-book WINDBOX II Quad (fanless).
At the airport, railway station, at the bank or at exhibitions - everyday we encounter kiosk systems., We use them in order to get information or we work with them. Even if you rather have the feeling of working with a display than with a computer (mostly you will find kiosk systems with touch displays), you are actually working with a Mini-PC hidden under the screen. The solutions of spo-comm not only provide the appropriate software in order to please its user but also need to be able to stand the poor heat loss conditions inside the kiosk system and also to cool down to moderate operating temperatures.
As the name already suggests, vehicle computing refers to the use of Mini-PCs in vehicles of all kind. Among other things Mini-PCs are used in ambulances, police cars, ships and also public transports. All these examples are equipped with control units which are in turn dependent on the small Vehicle-PC systems.
On the one hand we encounter Mini-PCs in supermarkets in the field of Digital Signage (as mentioned in the text above). On the other hand they can also be found at the checkouts. Scanners and monitors, just to mention a few examples, are connected to the, mostly passively cooled, Embedded-PCs to form the usual working environment.
Logistics and production
Especially in the field of warehousing and production Mini-PCs fulfill its purpose in several places. As already mentioned above, machine control and the processing of information are two of their purposes, but also diagnosis of errors, for instance, on the assembly line. Since it may happen that an assembly line is no longer running because it is jammed somewhere and prevents the line from moving. The Mini-PC can then ensure that the appropriate software can do its job, display the error and maybe also eliminate it in the same turn. You can find one possible solution for logistics in our reference hama and spo-comm - Logistics made easy.
Nevertheless Mini-PCs did not leave their original purpose behind them. Even in offices more and more Mini-PCs are used. They are not only saving a lot of space but also provide a high performance and are a lot more energy efficient than usual desktop PCs. In addition: Passively cooled solutions also contribute to a quiet and pleasant atmosphere. Due to its technical specifications the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced is a popular solution for the office.[views] => 6 [displayDate] => DateTime Object ( [date] => 2016-12-19 12:45:00.000000 [timezone_type] => 3 [timezone] => Europe/Berlin ) [categoryId] => 234 [template] => [metaKeyWords] => [metaDescription] => [metaTitle] => [tags] => Array ( ) [author] => [assignedArticles] => Array ( ) [media] => Array (  => Array ( [id] => 3798 [blogId] => 232 [mediaId] => 50329 [preview] => 1 [media] => Array ( [id] => 50329 [albumId] => 4 [name] => Bereiche_Mini-PCs [description] => [path] => media/image/Bereiche_Mini-PCs.png [type] => IMAGE [extension] => jpg [userId] => 56 [created] => DateTime Object ( [date] => 2019-11-07 00:00:00.000000 [timezone_type] => 3 [timezone] => Europe/Berlin ) [fileSize] => 290518 [width] => 1500 [height] => 1000 ) ) ) [attribute] => Array ( [id] => 229 [blogId] => 232 [attribute1] => NULL [attribute2] => [attribute3] => [attribute4] => [attribute5] => [attribute6] => [digi1Inactivateblogarticle] => 0 [digi1Sponsoredpost] => 0 [digi1Featuredpost] => 0 [digi1Hideblogdetailsite] => 0 [digi1Showleftsidebarblogdetailsite] => 0 [digi1Disablecommentfunction] => 0 [digi1Hideimageslider] => 0 [digi1Relatedblogarticle1] => 224 [digi1Relatedblogarticle2] => 228 [digi1Relatedblogarticle3] => 238 [digi1Relatedblogarticle4] => [digi1Relatedblogarticle5] => [isReference] => 0 [relatedItem] => ) [comments] => Array ( ) ) 1 know-how
