Businesses are looking to digital signage as an effective communication tool to replace static signage and easily treat their customers to an interactive experience. Through the use of digital displays, businesses are saving resources by eliminating the need for printed materials and costly manual distribution. Companies want a system that is easy to implement, provides rich content and is simple to manage while staying within their budgets. As a result, companies can deliver impactful messaging in a timely manner.
The 2nd Generation Samsung SMART Signage Platform (SSSP) provides all these advantages and more with an all-in-one solution that integrates a media player and PC with display management software. Equipped with powerful quad-core embedded System-on-Chip (SoC), the 2nd Generation Samsung SMART Signage Platform (SSSP) provides robust functionalities.
Samsung’s new 2nd Generation SSSP (Samsung SMART Signage Platform) offers substantially enhanced content management compared to the 1st Generation SSSP. The solution significantly improves the performance of dual-core displays with enhanced processing speed through a 1 GHz quad-core CPU and 1.5 GB double data rate (DDR3) dual 48-bit memory. It also eliminates the need for external media players and additional PC units, streamlining the deployment process, saving time and resources.The 2nd Generation SSSP-enabled displays offer a PIP size of over 50 percent of the display. In addition to its compatibility with the Samsung SMART Signage solution, the 2nd Generation SSSP is now compatible with certain 3rd party software as well.
The 2nd Generation SSSP provides robust functionality and supports the following advanced features
Previously, touch functionality was only possible when a separate PC and Touch Overlay option were installed. However, the 2nd Generation SSSP enables touch interaction by connecting only the optional Touch Overlay, without a PC or setback box (SBB).
Formerly, a separate PC was typically required to connect displays in a video wall, but the 2nd Generation SSSP eliminates this need. Multiple video wall displays can be connected in a PC-less environment using only a USB with a DisplayPort® (DP) loop-out. By simply plugging in a USB and connecting multiple displays over a daisy chain connection, the solution offers Internal Auto Play, which provides easier playback of content and reduced clutter.
If elaborate content management is needed, you can easily retrieve and update content by purchasing a DataLink server and a DataLink extended module without needing a separate SBB or Plug-in Module (PIM). This feature is made possible through the enhanced computing power of the 2nd Generation SSSP's quad-core, SoC technology.
Control and manage content display, and create customized content easily through the following 2nd Generation SSSP features:
Easily configure displays using an initial system setup wizard that eliminates the complex steps. When Samsung SMART Signage is turned on for the first time, a step-by-step wizard guides you through necessary settings that help the displays to function properly. Users can simply follow the on-screen instructions to set language, display orientation, network configurations, clock settings and player settings.
Easily set up content through the configuration menus which are readily available on the Home screen. A new Home screen with large icon-based UI buttons enhances ease of use. When the optional Touch Overlay is added, the Home UI supports convenient touch interaction.
The Multi-Channel feature enables up to 9 schedules to be programmed for local channels and up to 99 schedules for network channels. This feature gives you the flexibility to switch between schedules almost instantly. Also, content management becomes easier through storage of optimized content for each guest group.
A built-in Wi-Fi module extends Samsung SMART Signage's connectivity and control, enabling the transferring, playing, sharing and scheduling of content to digital signage without physical cables between the content source device and the display. In addition, you can easily edit and upload content through a mobile device using a built-in Wi-Fi module. This feature is ideal for locations where manual management is difficult or inaccessible. Plus, this helps eliminate the need for extensive lengths of cable to connect to the unit.
If an unforeseen malfunction or error occurs on a display, the Priority Play feature ensures that you won't have to worry that your important messaging will go down. Simply select and designate the most important content, so that if an error or malfunction occurs on one display, the selected content will be displayed automatically on the other operating displays. For example, if a malfunction occurs on the first display, then the priority content displays on the second and third displays.
Remotely control Samsung SMART Signage installed in multiple locations from a web server (MagicPlayer S2) and viewr current screens in real-time through our software. This new 2nd Generation SSSP enhanced remote management feature allows you to control numerous screens across the country from one single location.
