Silex Technology Introduces X-5 for Digital Signage Connectivity at InfoComm 2013

Makes Installation Easy With Full HD Video Hybrid Wireless Distribution System, Standalone Media Player

ORLANDO, FL--(Jun 12, 2013) - Silex Technology America, Inc., a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today announced X-5 Digital Signage Multicast Video Distribution with Store-and-Play Media Server at InfoComm 2013.


An ideal solution for digital signage content distribution, the X-5 is a powerful video distribution system that extends and distributes reliable, synchronized HD video and audio from one source to multiple receivers -- with wires or without. With the wireless technology available in the X-5, digital signage installers have the flexibility to locate displays anywhere -- even in places where displays were once not an option because running cables to the display location would have been too difficult or costly.

The X-5 builds on the Silex Technology tradition of transforming traditional A/V products into stable, reliable wireless equipment that delivers a completely connected, always-on experience. It supports multiple resolutions and the local content storage Media Server provides fallback protection when no content is available, ensuring the displays are always functional. With the Store-and-Play Media Server feature, users can play different content locally on each receiver without needing a transmitter.

"With the X-5, we're able to make installation and use of digital signage displays in any location almost effortless," said Keith Sugawara, vice president of business development at Silex America. "We strive to design and build the most flexible and reliable connection solutions for displays, and we are now proud to deliver the ultimate distribution method for Full HD video content."
