YCD Multimedia to Introduce at ISE 2013 MegaPixel Playback Players Combining Intel® CoreTM Processors and YCD's Video Wall Solution

MegaPixel Player Devices are very small in size and include 2 or 3 video ports

New York, NY - January 22, 2013. YCD Multimedia, a leading global provider of smart digital media solutions, will introduce at ISE 2013 innovative MegaPixel embedded playback devices, based on Intel® Core™ processors, playing ultra-high resolution content - and above. The Intel-based devices are powered by the YCD|Wall video wall solution that projects synchronized visual content on any number of screens at pixel perfect quality. Intel Core processors integrate the graphics (GPU) right into the processor's package. ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2013 will be held January 29-31, 2013 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and YCD will showcase the new product at its booth (#N116, Hall 10).

The MegaPixel Player Devices are very small in size and include 2 or 3 video ports, with each port producing higher resolution than full HD. Together, the video ports produce ultra-high resolution and above, and there is no need to install additional video cards.

The combination of YCD's player and Intel hardware enables video playback that meets advanced video compression standards such as H.264, while enabling advanced management of ultra-high resolution content. Combining several devices in a synchronized manner creates an unlimited megapixel playback canvas.

"The new and extremely powerful playback devices are an important milestone in the digital signage industry, addressing the growing demand for megapixel video playback. We plan to use these products to support many of the advanced video formats available," said Dani Zeevi, Chief Technology Officer of YCD Multimedia. "Currently, many implementations are done using multiple displays, but we are starting to see growing interest in using the new generation native ultra-high (4K) digital screens. With YCD's architecture, several devices like this can work together in a fully synchronized way and support unlimited megapixel screen resolution."

"The new playback devices combine the powerful performance of Intel hardware and YCD software, reflecting extensive experience, knowhow and innovation in the digital signage world," said Jose Avalos, director of Visual Retail at Intel Corporation. "Both companies offer the industry best-of-breed solutions to meet the increasing challenges of displaying and managing ultra-high definition content."
