Hand in hand with the STB GmbH: Logistics optimization through the spo-book SQUARE 15

The company SystemTechnik für Betriebsmittel GmbH (STB GmbH, which is to say SystemTechnology for Resources), from the Lower Saxony Wendeburg, is for over 15 years a competent partner around the topic of automated storage systems.

The problem and the idea

For a lot of people a familiar situation: If once in a company a large amount of people have access to resources, material or similar, then this often automatically means that things won’t be replaced promptly or properly after use, maybe even get lost in the vastness of halls or establishments. To guarantee therefore safeness, transparency and availability an appropriate storage system is essential.

A Panel PC from spo-comm provides the technical basis

The product range of the STB GmbH leaves nothing to be desired. In cooperation with the spo-comm GmbH the drawer shelving system WS 8/600 was equipped with the fanless Touch-Panel-PC spo-book SQUARE 15 in order to provide a user-friendly control and is therefore the perfect entry-level model. 

The 15-inch touchscreen of the spo-book SQUARE 15 grants, thanks to the specially developed software by STB GmbH, an insight of the contents of the Basic Cabinet. Authorized users therefore have the possibility, through a selection menu, to get access to the separate drawers and their subjects. The Intel platform of the robust Panel PC with a Dual-Core Processor proved itself especially in terms of low power consumption and optimal performance.

Result

The spo-book SQUARE 15 – the icing on the cake on the reliable Basic Cabinet WS 8/600. Thus once again teamwork has paid off and in the future customers can benefit from a comfortable and transparent storage system.

With the spo-book SQUARE 15 slim, spo-comm is launching the new model of its successful panel PC.

27 Jun 2018 Array ( [id] => 336 [title] => What is the difference between 4K and 8K? [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => While dealing with the topic of PC monitors, TVs or other devices, that show pictures or play video content, it won’t take much time until the terms UHD or 4K are mentioned. By now even the 8K-resolution is a very important thing. In the following article we want to explain what stands behind these terms and in what exactly makes them different. [description] =>

UHD, 4K and 8K – What is the connection?

Let’s talk about terminology first: UHD stands for Ultra High Definition. The “K” in 4K and 8K for the number thousand. Below in the text we explain you what this is all about.
The term UHD includes two different resolutions. One of them is UHD-1, the other UHD-2. The former one has a resolutions of 3840 × 2160 pixels and stands for what is in the common language known as 4K. In cinemas 4K has another resolution, in fact 4096 × 2160 pixels. These 4096 horizontal pixels stand for the term 4K – which means 4-thousand.

UHD-2 or 8K – Not only dreams of the future

8K has twice the amount of both horizontal and vertical pixels than 4K. That leads to the fourfold amount of pixels – overall 33 million – and corresponds to a resolution of 7680 × 4320 pixels.
But not only does the resolution increase: The color range (WCG, Wider Color Gamut) and the contrast range (HDR, Higher Dynamic Range) extend, as well as the image repeat rate that goes up to a maximum of 120fps.

HDMI 2.1 – From 4K over 8K up to a resolution of 10K

Due to the data rate of 24 Gbit/s 8K needs a special cable that suits this requirement. In January 2017 the HDMI forum released the final specifications for a fitting cable. It is the successor of HDMI 2.0, which is simply called HDMI 2.1. With the support of a 48 Gbit/s data rate this cable makes 8K@60Hz possible and even exceeds the DisplayPort-standard that allows a data rate of 32 Gbit/s in its version 1.3 (see also “VGA, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI – what’s the difference between these multimedia interfaces?”). By compressing the HDMI 2.1 cable even a resolution of 10.328 × 7.760, that’s 10K, is possible.

8K with Mini-PCs from spo-comm

At the moment we have two Mini-PCs in our product range that are able to play 8K content. One of them is our well-known Digital Signage player: The spo-book KUMO IV. This active cooled Mini-PC can play content in an 8K resolution due to its dedicated nVidia GTX 1060 graphics card with a VRAM of 6GB DDR5. The second Mini-PC is even the latest in our product range – the spo-book RUGGED GTX 1050 Ti. The system is equipped with a dedicated graphics card, too, and has furthermore a passive cooling system. As the PCs name suggests, the graphics card is an nVidia GTX 1050 Ti with a memory of 4GB and a VRAM up to 32GB high. At the same time four out of seven HDMI connectors make an 8K videowall possible.

That sounds interesting?
