The friendlyway AG can provide all services from a single source. Like this, the customers benefit from the broad know-how in the areas of system technology, content management, standard digital signage software and custom-made complete solutions. More than 30,000 installations in over 50 countries speak for themselves.

Task

The term “digital signage player package - regular edition” stand for friendlyway’s universal and pragmatic digital signage solution. The software – friendlyway player 9 – and the network – friendlyway network services – had to be combined with a reliable and LAN and WiFi capable hardware.   

Product / solution

Thanks to the dimensions of 255 x 180 x 19 mm (W x D x H) the WINDBOX II has found ist place in the KIOSK systems and steles from 17” to 26”. Due to the passive cooling and solid performance the WINDBOX II does its work reliably and displays target group specific content or informs the customers via an interactive touch terminal (friendlyway empire 19 / classic 19).

Conclusion

The testimonials of the new cooperation summarize the benefits: 

“With spo-comm's solution we are able to be even more competitive in price sensitive digital signage projects that need a mid-range performance player” says Klaus Trox, executive spokesman of the friendlyway AG.

“With this product the customer benefits from the high-quality demands and the longtime experience from the involved companies and can concentrate on the essentials: the digital presentation of the content”, notes Michael Sporrer, CEO of spo-comm.

Task

Use case of real, - terminal: The customer orders products from home or on the way via the internet shop. Once the items are available, the buyer is notified and may pick up his goods after a brief authentication at the terminal. The aim was to develop a future-oriented system. High-quality technology had to be combined with a robust design to withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heat in summer or frost in winter.

Product / Solution

Our proven, passively cooled spo-book WINDBOX II is the perfect solution for this task. Its stable and solid aluminum casing prevents dust etc. to penetrate into the interior. The default wall mount allows quick and solid fix. real, - terminal is used at the goods dispatchment of the new concept. It is now easy for customers to buy everyday goods directly from home via a PC or smartphone. Customers select goods online and order them in advance. As they are available, the customer is notified and can pick up the ordered products  by car – shortly after a brief authentication via the terminal at the goods dispatchment.

Conclusion

Improved checkout line experience and no more parking space search. For customers everyday shopping is now easy as a new way of relaxed shopping is created via the online system.

Task 

What was needed, was a suitable Mini-PC system for a measuring station that measures and analyzes the snow water equivalent and the moisture content of the snow 2500 meters above sea level.

In addition to the constant availability, the challenge was to cope with the restricted infrastructure and the extreme climatic conditions that prevail there. 

The technical adaptability to extreme conditions was the most important criterion for the scientists at LMU Munich.

Product / solution 

The perfect system is the MOVE T56N. Next to withstanding temperatures from -30°C to +60°C with a passive cooling, the system has an input voltage range from 9V to 36V.

The voltage converter, optimized for the automotive sector, reliably compensates for temporary irregularities and, with an additional fuse, ensures the protection of the entire system. 

Another advantage is the high-quality workmanship of the internal and external plug connections, which do not loosen even in the event of vibrations or strong thermal differences.

Conclusion

A Mini-PC that was developed for extraordinary burdens in vehicles, also withstands the extreme conditions in a measuring station in alpine mountains. Like that, the water content of the snow in this area is no secret.

LMU Munich and MOVE T56N – Researching under extreme conditions

The Ludwig-Maximilians university in Munich is one of the leading universities in Europe and has an over 500 year-long tradition. With its broad and fully differentiated range of subjects, it has great potential for innovative basic research - whether it is in the core of the individual disciplines or in the inter- and transdisciplinary network of different fields of knowledge.

20 May 2012 Array ( [id] => 51 [title] => spo-book WINDBOXII Plus impresses with high performance level [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => Looks the same but is even more powerful: With WINDBOXII Plus spo-comm now continues - in close cooperation with MSI IPC - WINDBOXII's success story by offering users some attractive additional functions. [description] =>

As the new mini PC still impresses with its included Intel Atom Technology on the cutting edge, it now has amongst the common DVI interface another one for monitors – on which pictures and videos are shown razor-sharp in full HD.

Further highlights of the powerful device are the unlimited usage of 64 bit operating systems or the expanded working memory: up to 4 GB RAM in comparison to 2 GB RAM of the earlier model. The power consumption is also worth mentioning: At highest performance level the device only needs about 19 watt – thanks to the very powerful but extremly economic combination of a powerful graphics processor and a very energy saving processor. In regards to external influences the Plus model impresses with a strong performance, too: It smoothly operates at temperatures of 0 °C up to 40°C and even an air humidity up to 90 % can't stop its capability.

spo-book WINDBOXII Plus is available for spo-comm partners exclusively at the mid of April 2012, all others can buy it at the mid of May. Of course, the predecessor – spo-book WINDBOXII – is still available. Thanks to same size and design WINDBOXII Plus can replace the previous model easily and quickly without any effort for users.
