Intermediate Engineering GmbH and the spo-book KUMO III – Together in the middle of the action

Innovative and professional project planning as well as implementation: The engineering office for media technology is the link between the classical fields video, sound, lighting and information technology. That Intermediate Engineering does not only rely on efficiency but also on effectiveness, shows in an impressive way the project "Clubhouse St. Pauli" in the midst of Hamburg’s center, the Reeperbahn.

Challenge

In September 2015 the Clubhouse St. Pauli had its kick-off, becoming the Reeperbahn’s eye catcher par excellence. “Unique” is probably most fitting when it comes to describe this building. Nearly 300 panels form a 700-square-foot, three-dimensional, advertising space and make the Clubhouse not only to Europe's largest media facade, but, thanks to sophisticated programming work, also to an interactive digital signage event.

If you look behind the façade, creative and convergent thinking require a powerful and reliable Embedded-PC in order to meet this installation concerning control management and the delivery of web-content.

Solution

High performance and graphic claims make the Mini-PC spo-book KUMO III the perfect choice.

In the case of Clubhouse St. Pauli each spo-book KUMO III comes with a 240 GB SSD and 8 GB strong SO-DDRIII RAM. The energy-efficient Core i5 processor from Intel and the graphics chip GT740M from nVIDIA ensure a smooth control of light, video and audio matrix as well as the uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Thanks to remote control the provision of web-content can be easily controlled via a separate spo-book KUMO III which brings the content to the media facade.

Result

The versatile design and programming work of Intermediate Engineering has found, regarding the technical support, the perfect partner with the spo-comm GmbH and allows the Reeperbahn to shine in new splendor.

The AMD® Ryzen V1807 CPU and the integrated AMD® VEGA 11 GPU provide a graphics power that enables digital signage applications in the high end field. [description] =>

AMD Ryzen V1807 CPU for high end digital signage

As the name suggests, the KUMO Ryzen has an AMD Ryzen V1807B CPU with 4 x 3.35 GHz (up to 3.8 GHz) as its centerpiece. Because the special construction of this processor combines the CPU with the GPU power, a very high computing power is ensured. Thanks to this particular feature also the processing of multimedia content is not inferior to a dedicated graphics card. These features are combined with an up to 32 GB big DDR4-RAM and two up to 500 GB or 960 GB big HDDs respectively SSDs. Like this, challenging digital signage applications are possible.

4x 4K due to Display Port 1.4 and AMD® VEGA 11

With dimensions of only 180 x 210 x 55 mm (W x D x H) the housing of our KUMO offers a lot of different interfaces. The most important for the digital signage field are probably the four DisplayPort 1.4, which can be found on the back panel of the KUMO. In combination with the integrated graphics unit AMD® VEGA 11 content in a resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz can be played on up to four displays at the same time.

Theft-protection, optional WiFi and 6x USB

The interfaces of the KUMO Ryzen appear in the usual KUMO design. Next to the centered power button the front panel offers two of the four USB 2.0 ports. The other interfaces are located on the back panel. These include on one hand four other USB ports – two times 2.0, two times 3.1 – and on the other hand two audio and two LAN-ports can be found. In addition to this two COM ports are located on the back. The lateral placed Kensington Lock also guarantees theft protection. Thanks to the two integrated M.2 ports WiFi is optional.

From Windows 10, to IoT Enterprise to Linux Ubuntu

The options for the software of our KUMO Ryzen are also worth a look: The system can be equipped with the operating systems Windows 10 Home, Professional and Linux Ubuntu. Using Windows 10 IoT Enterprise even different adjustments – depending on the customer request – can be realized.

Technical data at a glance:

  • CPU: AMD® Ryzen V1807B Quad Core SoC (3.35 – 3.8 GHz)
  • Graphics: AMD® VEGA 11
  • Max. resolution: 3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz
  • 4x DisplayPort  1.4: up to 4 independent displays

NEW: KUMO Ryzen – High end digital signage powered by AMD

With the KUMO Ryzen the spo-comm presents another AMD based Mini-PC. The AMD® Ryzen V1807 CPU and the integrated AMD® VEGA 11 GPU provide a graphics power that enables digital signage applications in the high end field.
5 Feb 2020 Array ( [id] => 498 [title] => NEW: KUMO V - Digital Signage PC with Nvidia RTX 2060 [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => Just in time for the ISE, spo-comm introduces a new digital signage player for high-end graphics performance: the KUMO V. The newcomer is equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor and – what’s even more exciting - an Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card. [description] =>

Turing for artificial intelligence

As usual, the new model of the popular KUMO series scores with a dedicated graphics card: an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB integrated GDDR6 memory and 1920 CUDA cores. Thanks to Nvidia's Turing architecture, the Mini-PC offers real-time ray tracing, AI computing power and new shading technologies, that are made for ultra-high-performance graphics applications, virtual reality and innovative AI algorithms.
